If there is one thing I hate, besides stupidity, it’s people who take themselves and the world a little too seriously. Unfortunately, this often seems to be the case with lesbians. Now don’t get all defensive, I am obviously not referring to the lovely lesbians that read my blog.
If you read my blog regularly and you like what you read, then you are the kind of person I like. You know, with a good sense of humour (not to mention great taste of course, liking my blog and all lol) and not all that pc.
Did I mention I also really hate all this politically correct BS? I don’t think anyone should ever intentionally hurt someone else by what they say, if they can help it, but as far as I’m concerned there’s nothing wrong with speaking your mind.
Speaking your mind and just telling it like it is. Over the years, my big mouth has often gotten me into trouble, but it was seldom intentional. I just tend to be really direct and tell you how I feel, and not everyone can appreciate that.
Still, I think that’s a lot better than being all pc and nice to someone’s face, while you are really thinking they suck. Those people who are very pc, or at least try to be, are often the same kind of folks that are easily offended.
I think there is nothing wrong with making fun of people and things. We should be able to laugh about everything – well most things anyway. My kind of humour – sarcasm in particular – isn’t everyone’s kind of humour, and I understand and respect that. But please ladies, don’t get upset or even angry over a little sarcasm.
Wonder what exactly I am talking about? Well, the examples I could give you are endless. One in particular are the responses to the Fake Gay News posts on AE a few weeks ago. They were sarcastic articles about fake news.
You would think people would get that, but no, they actually needed to put a warning up that they were satirical posts, meaning it wasn’t real. Even then, there were lots of comments of people who didn’t like it or were offended by it even.
I really don’t get it. To me those articles – in particular Dara Nai’s article about the lesbian reenactment village – were some of the best things I’ve read on AE all year. Absolutely love them.
Is it just a matter of different taste or are we talking totally different kinds of people? I tend to think the latter. In fact, there’s a reason most of my friends and the people I know share my sense of humour and my outlook on life.
Am I saying I would not befriend someone simple because they didn’t like sarcasm or directness? Sure. I’ve rejected people for a whole lot less. Seriously, sharing the same sense of humour is probably one of the most important things in any relationship.
If you don’t like what I like, fine, but at least try to lighten up. Life’s too short to be so uptight and miserable all the time.
