The Katherine Ryan joke was funny!
I would say to those who are “outraged” by the joke, they probably are suffering from white fragility, but that would outrage them even more, and aint nobody got time for that! I saw someone recently retweet a quote from that new GB tv channel? The one that’s like America’s Fox “news”? About how if people stopped being so offended all the time, we could learn new things. The thing that made me laugh. That they’re the ones always offended! “We’re” the ones pointing out what’s offensive, but EVERYTHING offends them!
The quote itself is absolutely right. It’s just that generally it’s the Right who make the offense, and the Left who point out what’s wrong and then the Right get huffy…Generally!
The funniest part of what I find funny about the Right, is that will take something that isn’t even offensive and then make it into this big deal. Whereas things that MATTER, they don’t care about. I have yet to see anyone on the Right actually be horrified by the recent Florida Bill. Which means that it’s LEGAL, if a teacher SUSPECTS that a school student is non-gender conforming, who wants to participate in Sports. That teacher can inspect that CHILD’s genitals. Yet, what are the Right outraged about? “Experimental” Puberty Blockers, that have been around since the 80s.
I’ve spent most of the day explaining to white people why that Katherine Ryan joke was funny. But you know, white fragility and all that, haha
I also spent some of that time trying to explain to white people, why, when the majority of POC are saying something IS racist, to listen to them. It’s not easy to get through to some people. One person was telling me that they could called me homophobic, but unless they had proof than they couldn’t call me that. As I pointed out though, that if the majority of gay people are calling me homophobic, and they aren’t coming from a place of hate (like some gay TERFs do) I am going to listen to them. I’m not going to keep going on and on, about how homophobic I am not, when the majority are telling me that I am.
