A forewarning, this post may be offensive to some groups of people. Haha, I just contradicted the title, how ironic. This post’s about how easily people get offended nowadays, and how political correctness is bullshit.
h4. Nobody Can Take A Fucking Joke Anymore
There, I said it. That basically sums up half of this post. Make a racial/discriminatory/sexist/off-color joke, and you will either get some laughs or a cold stare. Everybody takes things to close to heart these days. Learn to laugh at yourselves, and lighten up. I hate it how if you make a couple of jokes people instantly slap labels on you. Made several racial jokes? *Racist!* Made sexist jokes? *Sexist!* Made jokes about something messed-up (abortion jokes come to mind)? *Insensitive bastard!*
They’re jokes, people. Few actually mean what they say- most are just looking to get some laughs. And come on, offensive jokes are the funniest! Don’t criticize me for trying to entertain you, just walk away. If I wanted to hear your opinions, I’d ask.
*Moral of this story?* If you don’t like a joke, don’t start shouting out your opinions. Just walk away- I can respect that.
h4. Political Correctness
The second issue on this flamebait rant is political correctness, or PC as I will be referring to it. PC essentially means saying things in a way as to not offend anyone. Instead of saying fireman, you’d say fireperson, instead of businessman, you’d say businessperson, and so on. *It’s socially-enforced mind control.* I honestly don’t see the point of being PC. We were “incorrect” for thousands of years, and it was alright.
One particular part of this that annoys me is having to say “African American” instead of just black. Firstly, it takes way too fucking long to write that out. Secondly, not every black person is from Africa, so saying African American is incorrect as well. It’s been black for ages, and I see no reason to change that.
Seriously people, stop wasting time trying to enforce “correctness” and go help solve a real issue, like hunger or poverty.
That concludes my angry rant. I just remembered that this *is* a personal blog, so I’m not going to censor myself any longer. I don’t swear that much anyway- only when I need to make a point. What are your thoughts on this issue? Feel free to comment and send me hatemail.
