That's the problem with "Political Correctness", it's a no-win situation.

I heard there was dissension amongst the pink pussy hat protestors because as a woman you can't make the assumption that everyone has a vagina. WTF

Honestly I cringed, the acting is horrible especially from todd's smile.

The best solution to this is do what I do, Don't look at people and see colors or gender, just bag of bloods
wait now I sound like a vampire

It really wasn't funny or politically correct, but then it's a well known fact that ginger people can't act. :D

#3 fully agree.

This wasn’t funny in the slightest and it just provides additional evidence that social conservatives simply can’t do comedy. Whinging and complaining and making ridiculous hyperbolic statements around disliked words and concepts and ideas is not itself humours or funny or witty; it takes a level of introspection and creativity to make something funny and a willingness to make fun of one’s own position, advantages, disadvantages, and privileged or lack thereof in society. Social conservatives approach such issues with a sense of piousness and righteousness and defensiveness and a grievance mind-set and this combination is never funny. It is a thinly disguised rant that comes from the fact that they often can’t recognize or are unwilling to recognize their own privilege and that, combined with the insistence that everyone must respect their intolerance for others, ironically in the name of tolerance, makes for lame humour like the pathetic effort in this video.

Hilarious Footage Suxy? I guess if you like Fox & Friends then this would be appealing. This is comedy for insecure straight white Christians who feel their world and values are under siege. It may be appropriate social commentary from your perspective but it is not funny or comedic at all. Grievance ranting is not comedy but thanks for playing.

#4 Okay Austin this is it. You have been on Snotr now for a number of years and I am intrigued to know a little more about you, not because I want to have babies with you, not even if you are a female Austin. But you type as if you have swallowed encyclopedia Britannica, you use seventy two words when six would probably do. What do you do for a living and how old are you?

Suxy why are you pushing this nonsense on Snotr? It took me 2 minutes to confirm my suspicions.

One reason why this video is not funny is the fact that it is Christian agitprop.

This is not humour but ideological propaganda which again why it fails to be funny. This is an unabashed Christian grievance rant attaching itself to a current event / meme.

The video was produced by Apologia Studios. Their declared goal is ‘is to spread Christ glorifying, gospel centred media where we confront topics in our culture with a biblical answer, while training Christians in the biblical worldview’ via ‘culturally engaging entertainment, sound theology and apologetics – suitable for the entire family’.
They believe that ‘Christians should be distributing Biblically-centered content that brings glory to God and outshines anything that the world can offer’.

This is subversive drivel Suxy. The goal is not to laugh but to indoctrinate in the name of Jebus.

Ugh. Again – social conservatives simply can NOT do comedy. Good comedy requires one to be self-aware, open minded and critical of one’s own positionality and that is basically the opposite of a Fundie world view where God has given the followers, and only these followers, the righteous and correct set of beliefs and all others are either sinners or apostates or in need of conversion.

That motivation, to righteously convert the heathen masses, rather than simple reflection and comment which is the basis for comedy, has always and will always make for piss poor comedy.

#2 I agree. It was horrible acting, but to some extent I think that was on purpose.

#4 and #6 blah blah blah. GD. Give it a rest. Your point of view is well documented on most of the media out there. PC is designed to shame and shut down discussion, so that crowd is not so "open minded" like they love to claim. We need discussions on both sides.

#1. snotraddict ‘I heard there was dissension amongst the pink pussy hat protestors because as a woman you can't make the assumption that everyone has a vagina’

Is this another story taken from InfoWars? The fact that you feel this is a credible source of information is laughable if you know anything about the disgusting conspiracy theories that Alex Jones peddles on that site.

So you make a broad statement, for outrage purposes, but gives no indication of evidence of how widespread or shared this sentiment is. And in fact you honestly can’t assume everyone who presents in female normed clothing and attire has female genitalia. The point of this pushback is to make people aware of the transgendered population – a minority that is often overlooked. It is just challenging assumptions which is healthy in my opinion.

Furthermore, a reasonable IMHO argument has been made that not only is the pink pussyhat exclusionary offensive to transgender women and gender non-binary people who don't have typical female genitalia but also to women of colour because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink. These are nuanced arguments that reflect how a movement has grown and become more refined and sensitive to its constituents and their identities. Or we can just mock it as PC nonsense.

#5. Judge-Jake. I imagine it is my training and background that allows me to write the way I do. I just think along these lines and it is not hard or time consuming to write a post on Snotr.

And #7 Snotty your claim that ‘PC is designed to shame and shut down discussion so that crowd is not so "open minded" like they love to claim’ is a predictable overgeneralization. Yes, some practitioners go too far, for example protecting students from descriptions or images (via art) containing sexual violence, is something I find to be utterly antithetical to academia, learning and free expression. But this is not a majority view. And this happens in all causes - right and left. However, the goal onthe left PC side here is recognition and awareness and respect and tolerance and equality for all people.

Social conservatives and InfoWar acolytes such as yourself would be fine if you wanted to keep your views and beliefs etc to apply to your own bodies and institutions but you don’t. Your values and values systems are imposed on others as are your judgements as to right and wrong, correct and incorrect, acceptable and unacceptable. And these manifest themselves in laws and public policy unfortunately. And too often your Bronze Age value system is inherently sexist, discriminatory, prejudicial, racist, patriarchical etc etc and quite frankly those of us who accept the implications / consequences of the Age of Enlightenment and modern science, medicine etc and believe in dignity and respect for all regardless of race, creed or religion do need to push back.

It is a fundemental question of tolerance and openness versus intolerance and tradition and the infallibility of God’s words. I know what side I am on.

@Austin. Should i start with a compliment that you are inspiration to form a better sentence or line of thought. So i would kinda want you input or anyones, if you want to chip in.
As for PC it is sad that we cant use colorful words. I mean my (word) and you (word) have totally different meanings. While if it is just a word, tone of it, might be hard to describe or even harder to prove its meaning. We can always, try to save us with just kidding.
But to the question
Is same sex marriage slap in the face to women?
I must be honest here im looking for a quick fix dont want to go into too much research about marriage, how it came about. But seems to me it was there to protect women from all men, but one.
While he might do, whatever he wanted to her, at least it was just one, but we dont need to go into that hole.

PS: just try word god, im all about we stop using it or translate it into 'every person has own god' we call it individuality? Or what ever makes you get up in the morning.

PPS: On further thought even my word can be taken both ways depends on the history implied.
