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.
My mum and I have right ole’ gossip and biotching session while we’re in the car. One thing she brought up was that she agrees that the PC Culture is over the top at the moment … BUT … BUT … it’s a very big BUT …
But it’s because the alt-right have taken to that level.
You take Alex Jones as a good example. Tries to go around smearing the names of parents who have lost children in the shootings,causing them to move nearly 7 times! They decided that they’ve had enough and he decides to sue them for HIS legal fees? Hey, dude! If you weren’t smearing people’s names you wouldn’t have those issues, would you…”genius”. It’s not even about attacking parents who lost children, it’s just going out of your way to smear anyone, causing them to have constantly move…Knowing FULL WELL what your supporters are doing.
Trump pretty much just handing over America to the Russians. Let alone those t-shirts that read “I’d choose a Russian over a Democrat”…Go live there then, if you think Russia is so fantastic! Why Russian anyway? The irony being of course, we all know that they couldn’t actually survive there.
Then there’s the sudden increase in African American…children…Having the police called on them by white folk. There is no way these people do not know about Tamir Rice. That even made the Australian news! I’ll have to find the video, but I heard this really good point made. Listen up racist white folk…When you make that call because of an “annoyance”, knowing full well about Tamir Rice. You are saying loud and “proud” that you, because of an “annoyance”, you are fully prepared to put that child’s life at risk. Simply because you’re “annoyed”.
I am left-handed…I am the devil child =P It’s still really odd to me that think that only a couple of decades ago people were punished for writing with their left hands. It’s bizarre.
If you had only one TV, would you prefer the TV in the living room or another room?
This is an interesting question, only a year ago I put a television into my room and still have a television in the lounge/living room. It’s great having a tv in my bedroom, especially when you’re sick or have a self inflicted “headache”. It can really be destructive as well, because even when you’re not ill, you stay in your bed all day. So if I had to choose I would actually keep only one in my living/loung room.
Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story.
No I have not, I know, it’s terrible! I am more likely to participate in a reading marathon, or craft type marathon >.<
Complete this sentence: Love is…
when you know you feel safe and protected. You know that you can do whatever, say whatever you want and never feel unsafe and never feel threatened…For your health and well-being as well.
