Ha, I was just thinking of this on Wednesday night when I had to wear my glasses for a fun night out at the gay bar with my bff.  We were in Fort Worthless, and I totally made out with a girl of a different ethnicity.  Hot!  She said she loved my glasses.  Score!

Dallas, you say that on the internet, but face it, in person men don't make passes at men who wear bifocals.

I have to wear bifocals now.  And even then sometimes it's blurry.

I've seen some of them naked. They deserve pity.

Nope, if I'm saying I have to put up with something really bad like the KKK, they should have to tolerate some mild ribbing.

Did you just compare "Draw Mo Day" to the KKK?
Comment by Grace Fitzpatrick on August 20, 2011 at 9:53am
I think it's wanting special rights that is the problem.  Muslims want to make it against the law to draw Mohummad while enjoying the heck out of blaspheming of other religions.  Another analogy would be Mormons forcing everyone to go without coffee or any type of caffeine because that is a big no-no for them and making drinking coffee against the law.  All other religious groups (including atheists) have to tolerate jokes about their religion or lack of religion in our case.  Frankly, I have to tolerate the Westboro Baptist Church and KKK rallies rallies which I detest, Muslims have to tolerate draw Mo day.  If they didn't make such a huge deal out of every imagined offense, maybe people would loose interest in drawing Mo.

I get that it was a holocaust joke. I'm not trying to show that it was funny.  Other people's reaction whether light or serious doesn't change the facts or improve their position.  There are lots of very serious priests and lots of very humorous oncologists.

I'm sure that a muslim feels very justified in their real offence; it would be wrong though to think that you or I have a monopoly on what 'justifies' offence; people can choose to take offence at whatever they like.  Holocaust 'humour' is tasteless, I agree, and the extermination of people, whether wasteful or not is clearly horrific.  However the point is that why should people care that something offends you?  You haven't actually been damaged by it, have you?  Presumably you can tell the difference between killing people and joking about it can't you?

I'm certainly not telling holocaust jokes and the only thing I'm taking lightly is vicarious offence; I think it's as ridiculous as vicarious responsibility.

My worry would be that some idiot brings in laws to avoid offence, like the old blasphemy laws we had here.
