jokes about trainwrecks = funny, jokes about abortion = not funny??
    #4095398 - 04/25/05 04:19 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

so I made a joke about abortion, my brother and his friend got pissed off and said it was sick,,

a couple minutes later my other brother made a joke about a trainwreck that was on tv, everyone laughed including the ones who found my abortion joke offensive...now comes the question, do i have reason to refrain from my "sick" jokes, as to be not offensive (i can respect that if they trully are offended by it),,,or would that be just feeding there hyprocrisy?

Did you call them out on the hypocracy they were demonstrating?

Just explain the double standard, and either allow them to be hypocrites stuck in their perceptions of a joke, or make it clear that it was a joke and it's applicable in the same way it was in the train wreck.

:shrug: Afterwards send them down to the OTD.

People in general tend to be too uptight about jokes. That's why most people are lame.

BTW, what's funnier than a dead baby?

yea i called them out on it,,,he said "hey man, don't make jokes about kids,,because i love kids"

as if that makes it any less hyprocritical..i think he felt if he referred to fetus's as "kids" it would make me feel sad about what i said..but none the less, he was on his way to work, so we did'nt get to discuss..

which is why i'm here talking to you guys..

Your response should have been, "Well hey man, don't make jokes about trains, I love trains..."

And don't make fun of black people either. There's a black guy in my family tree.


He's still hanging there.

abortion is linked to "mother" and "child" which most people are sensitive to

Something similar happened to me the other day while chatting online. I made a joke about rape, and the entire room was up in arms, mad as hell about my joke. They ended up all iggying me, so i made the handle "rape_jokes_arent_funny" and went around telling rape jokes trying to prove a fake point about rape jokes.
I bet even on this forum someone will berrate me for thinking rape can be funny, so before you do....read my signature quote.

Here is the thing, if I was raped (I wasn't) when I was 8 years old by my drunken father, I don't think it would be appropriate to tell me a rape joke. Yes, in this instance, this topic DOES cease to be funny to people who are personally connected to the issue at hand.

Some people are empathetic to the existence and plight of others, and would rather never think about one human violently and forcibly raping another human being, than laugh at it.

I will agree that people are much too uptight about some things, and I have told my fair share of rape jokes, whether or not I "ought" to is a different story. Although, I would say there are situations in everyone's life in which they are not capable of laughing given their emotional state. Without even getting into whether or not they should feel that way, the fact is that they do, and they probably will get over it and feel better a lot sooner if you didn't tell them incest or rape jokes.



edited for clarity and to make sure everyone knows i wasnt actually raped.

As many would say on this forum, It is your own fault for being afacted by your fathers rape, you should have just relaxe and enjoy sex with your father and look on the bright side.

of course this is sarcasm
