It seems to me that the people who always get upset at articles like these are the people that are afraid they won't be able to make the very jokes the article is about.


I'm offended at the thought not being able to make offensive jokes. Your move smart guy.

FYI....99.99999% of the people on the net whining about a lack of "political correctness" and claiming that certain things are racist or homophobic (when they're really not) are white straight people.

So if you go into a Popeyes and call everyone the n word, nobody's going to get offended?

Maybe if you used complete sentences I'd have a clue as to what you're trying to say.

That depends on the skin color of the one using the word.

And what exactly would you call ASSUMING that everyone in a Popeye's Chicken restaurant is going to be black ? ? ?

Going back to the subject of casual homophobia, how is one going to determine somebody's sexual orientation based on overhearing the f word in a high school hallway, or using "gay" as an insult in a semi-anonymous internet post?

Just like the "I was sexist once, and I'm a woman" I can't tell if these people are that clueless, or simply hilarious.

I hate this age of political correctness. You could get in legal trouble for petty stuff.
