You really gonna sit here and defend cirque de so gay? That's one of the cringiest lines I've ever heard.

Yeah keep backpedaling.

... backpeddling from what?

I like plenty of male comics that are not beacons of stereotypical manliness. In fact... alpha maleness is a rare quality in a good stand-up. Your assertion is simply nonsense.

Funny how you don't want to try to defend the actual material... Yet I'm "backpeddling."

I mean you bitch about sjw snowflakes and now you throw out effeminate as an insult as if it's a legitimate insult for anyone who isn't an anti-sjw dickhead. Yeah you're backpedaling.

I also called him white and obese in the same sentence..

Cause I was making fun of his stereotypical def jam delivery filtered through a fat white sissy's mouth

You honed in on the word "effeminate" while ignoring all the words around it cause as always you're desperate for a gotcha moment.. cause you can't defend how terrible that clip was.

You even managed to drag my sexuality into it... You silly bigot.

Yeah because you're a dip**** who latches onto traditionalism for your sense of keeping the world in an easy to relate to perspective even though you're kind of a fringe person who doesn't realize that a lot of the time you side with perspectives that do not necessarily like you.

.. you're a bad e shrink

Comedy almost always plays with societal taboos. Pointing out the specifics of how isn't political cheerleading. You just don't happen to like his politics so now it's "boring." Mindless hypocrite.

I guess my issue is that it's still taboo to be trans and to talk about trans issues, it's really not all that taboo to tell tasteless trans jokes

you hear them all the time

same idea down the line on these things, the existence of a small group of militant activists on twitter hasn't changed the social dynamics of power

You say it's taboo... It's not really taboo in Hollywood. It might be taboo at any particular dinner table. But in this industry there's undeniably more of a taboo against being percieved a bigot than there against the marginalized groups they're trying to shelter from any cricism.

It's all about how powerful the lobbying group behind you is. Jews are far from a disenfranchised group in this country yet you can still get in trouble for saying anything that borders on anti-Semitic.

elphenor 10-31-2019 05:05 PM

and I'm not saying subjects have to be off limits, just don't make yourself out to be a martyr over it

there are comics that go out and just tell strictly offensive jokes, but they don't go bitching that people are offended by this offensive thing that they're saying...it's to be expected
