Writing edgily about a group that you aren't a part of is a risky proposition in our society. There's a lot of PCness and fear of offending. I don't like getting caught up in that but I don't want to hurt people either, it's a tough line to walk. I firmly believe that the only way we can really get past prejudice is if everyone is allowed to confront and discuss it, not just members of aggrieved groups. That's why as a fat Jew I don't write primarily about fat Jewish issues. That would be ghettoizing my words into the convenient group I fit into. I don't think that's productive.
Anyway I was interested if people had any reaction to the new style and how it's working so far. So I made a poll. It's what I do. Don't judge me. The Nazis judged my people. Are you a Nazi?
Now I'm off to a Chelsea Best Buy to pick up my air conditioner I ordered. I have a feeling it's going to be like Gaymart down there. Oh well.
How do you feel about the shift?
I like it, it is fresher and edgier
It's okay, women are purdy
Annoying, more GAY please
Horrible, horrible, horrible
I had not noticed
I'm trying to care less, but I cannot
How do you feel about humor regarding groups one is not a part of
It's great, I'm a huge racist!
It can be good so long as it's not sincere in its prejudice
It makes me uncomfortable, too edgy, I always liked that Jay Leno
It's horribly offensive loathsome stuff.
I have no opinion on this matter. I am above the law.
Do I suck at life?
Anything else to add?
