and it's not a locational thing; it's individual groups. there are 2 different organizations at Mount Holyoke College, True Colors (the "american" LGB support group) and La Familia (the international student LBGT support group); notice the lack of T in one and not the other? on the same campus even.


Well, as I said previously, that is pretty interesting, certainly something I was unaware of. Thank you for adding this tidbit to the discussion, I've got some reading up to do now

OWNS,
While I agree with your main point that political correctness is useless bullshit most of the time, I find no humor in Morgan saying he would stab his son if he turned out to be gay. That's just ridiculous and horrifying.

I agree that people need to be able to laugh at themselves though. So many racial and social minorities get so offended at the slightest joke. I'm what you might call a mutt. Half white half hispanic/latina/Honduran. My co-workers, and even my own husband and friends jokingly call me a "half-spick" all the time. Even my hispanic friends and family do the same. For my birthday, my brother made me a burrito with half of it grilled. It's all fun to me.

Cowgirl,
While you defined yourself as male, did you ever have a girlfriend?

Well Ari there is a simple answer for your feelings on tracy's quote, it's just that a quote any joke you read like that loses all timing and context and feeling of being at the show and laughing your balls off, if there is ever a reason to be offended at a comedy show it's because there's a hacky comedian up there bombing and everyone booing. I had no idea that's what mutt meant ari haha.

I think people should just ease up and enjoy life instead of taking every joke so seriously and being offended. If you like the joke ( and not by reading it in an article like cowgirl posted) then you laugh at it and have a good time. If not you say eh that sucked but whatever i'm not gonna bother anyone about this and make a big scene over nothing i'll just ignore this comic and move on with my life.

No joke should ever be off the grid.

I've laughed my ass off at anti-gay jokes, racist jokes, abortion jokes, jokes about killing babies, a hilarious joke about murdering a dog with a hammer, etc. These are obviously laid out by professional comedians who do a great job at making light on what would be normally horrible situations, and they do a damn good job at it.

In fact I once watched a video where comedians were discussing this very thing, about how a comedian's job is to take you to places you would not normally go and make you laugh and have a good time about them, that's their art form.

I didn't read the last few pages just saw people defending jokes, so sorry if my post isn't on topic.

All due respect guys, I think it's best if we simply agree to disagree and let this thread get back on topic.

That's cool, was just throwing in my two cents on the comedy subject while it was going.
