OK to balance it out.... From the movie full metal jacket....
So your suggesting if it's in a movie it's fair game? What's next, humorous stories about stringing up a gay man to a fence or dragging blacks behind cars? Both of which are in movies.
Opps. Well I was going to post a segment from that movie but the language is really rough. Just go to Utube and search
"Texas: Only Steers and Queers"
Yep, I agree, lots of rough stuff out there. I'm just wondering why it needs to come here. Maybe not the language, but certainly why the message.
People are too sensitive these days. :roll: Did you hear they are taking the "N" word out of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn books? Once considered great literature. Recommended reading in schools.
I agree. Leave the book alone. But I also wonder why those that hear others with differing opinions need to rationalize, and bring other issues into it. Respecting other people's opinion is also about not trying to bash them or rationalizing other people's opinions by pointing fingers and claiming people are too sensitive. If you are not, fine. I didn't suggest removing this thread. Just adding my opinion to it.
Also the questioning of being allowed on a bee forum. This is the "HUMOR is a FUNNY THING" section. Not the "HUMOR is a FUNNY THING as long as it is bee jokes" section.
Never said it should be removed. I questioned why it is here. I never suggested jokes should be only about bees. I do however question the denigration of any other group, including Native Americans, women, blacks, gays, etc., disguised as humor...then weakly supported by references to movies.
Hey, don't get upset. I'm just expressing my opinion just as those who laughed at a story filled with symbolism of squashing two gay spiders. ;) This was what it was about...Right?
There is lots of funny stuff out there. I just don't think these are funny. And I hope on any forum, that the members can appreciate a differing of opinion. :-D
I love how we can't say ni---- or fag---, but if we disquise our feelings on the matter, we can make funnies and still get our points across, just becuase some call it humor. Sorry...that's the way I see it.
