Honestly, I believe that people just can't take an insult.  If someone says something unkind then the person that it was aimed at might go home and hurt themselves, or cry about it.  This generation is just so screwed up, we're taught to not fight back, and not help out, if you do, you get in trouble.   
   
Racism, sexism, and any other type of 'hate' that people show today is just stupid, and it will never go away completely.  We've definitely come a long way from back when blacks and whites weren't even allowed to go to the same school, and when women had no power at all, but that doesn't mean that all this stupid "I'm better than you" BS is going to just no longer exist.  It would be nice, but it doesn't seem likely.   
   
Nice post, I liked it, but it made me kind of annoyed because people are actually so...  weak minded that they find words to be harmful in anyway.   
   
The only words that should matter are the words of the people you love, and care about, and that love and care about you.

I like how you guys believe that the worst that happens is being insulted verbally. You never consider the violence, irrational hatred, and disadvantages minorities have in almost any situation. The only thing you want is to not have to think about whether you ever offended someone and if you have ****** behaviors you dont want to change. Minorities can't do anything about the amount of irrational hate they will meet in their lifetime. What they can do, however, is point out those faults and try to voice it. They will not always be able to put together a neutral, calm voice when doing this because they are mad that they are treated a certain way and that other people of similar situations are mistreated too. They're entitled to be angry actually because it really ******* sucks when you get suspicious glares because of your skin color or have to worry about being heckled on the streets because of your gender....

And the worst thing you can tell them is "oh you're being weak. just pretend it doesn't happen if you want peace for all of us. think about me when you're saying potentially hurtful things to me over your disadvantages." Which is the FJ way of handling gender equality or any equality in general.

I understand what you are saying, and I agree with you. My comment was focused on the words though.

There are people that get pushed around, beat up, and a lot worse than just some insignificant words. People hurt themselves over being called names, and people being ignorant towards their race, gender, or sexuality.

I said nothing about violence, hitting and abuse, because that's not what I was focusing on. If someone is getting hurt for being a specific color or having certain body parts, then heck yeah its messed up, but when the worst that is happening is they get called a mean name, it just stupid for them to react in the way that most people do.

My state just enacted a law that makes everyone... "gender neutral" and I think it's ******* retarded that it's a law. Just respect eachother without prejudice, how ******* hard is that?! apparently so hard it has to be made into a law. :/
User avatar #178 - coastalhobo (07/29/2013) [-]
It seem to me like alot of the people calling racism or sexism are the ones bringing race and sex into the equation when the topic isn't even related to any of that.

Because this is what tends to happen.

Might have been more of a knee jerk reaction to some of the other reactions in the comments than to the content itself. I agree with the main comic's view that we should stop being dicks to each other and start being nice human beings. I don't agree with the comments below that claim people shouldn't be offended when people say offensive things in public to strangers because they were "just joking".

So, disregarding both Trayvon's race and Zim Zam's race...   
I don't see why Zim Zam wasn't charged with anything. I understand he shot out of self defense, but isn't actually killing the kid a bit much? Wouldn't shooting the kid in the knee would have been enough?

I guess he thought Trayvon felt the gun during the struggle. I thought that too, but I guess Zimmerman said during court that it was either Trayvon or himself, someone was gonna use the gun. Might be true, might not, but I'm okay with it.

I think the true problem of the this case is the crazy ass laws in the sunshine state, the problem is that this was legal under the law when it is such a moral and legal grey area.

Florida's self defense law that was used in the Zimmerman case is a mirror image of every other state. If you're talking about stand your ground it didn't apply to the trial.

Because he didn't do anything illegal because evidence didn't support any valid justification for charging him with anything.

The negroids that went crazy for a few days though did not seem to care about the jury's decision though.

Because shooting someone in the leg implies you don't completely fear for your life. Zimmerman would be in jail right now if he had done that.
#221 to #110 - anon (07/29/2013) [-]
Why do people say stuff like this? You have a huge artery behind your knee. Shooting him in the knee isn't a big improvement over shooting him in the chest. There's basically no place to aim that can't be fatal. You can try shooting people in the feet or hands, but that too can be fatal.

As far as Zimmerman, he could have shot at Martin's knee, but I'm not sure that would have been any better for Martin than aiming at his chest, and if he did try and fire at Martin's knee, he may have shot himself.

Or maybe it's all context? The first one in my opinion doesn't mention race at all, therefore it's not racist. In the second situation, both statements are gross generalizations but they aren't specifically offensive enough to be called sexist.

TL;DR it's more complex than this post makes it seem, but the overall idea is one i can agree with.
#164 - pankikilord (07/29/2013) [-]
Somewhat on the same topic. I always dislike it when people take MAJOR offense to a joke because it's "Racist" or whatever.

The whole point of humor is to NOT take it seriously. I don't give a **** what the joke is about, or whether or not it touches on a subject I take seriously or not. Jokes are meant to make you laugh, regardless of the subject. If you find it offensive, or don't find it funny, just put up with it.

Sure, take offense if the person MEANS something they said. Or if they're ACTUALLY racist or sexist. But just because you joke about something, doesn't mean you are against or for it. I'll laugh at black jokes, WITH my black friends, and it wont mean I'm a racist.

If you are taking something that's not meant to be take seriously so damn seriously, you're clearly doing life wrong.

racism and sexism won't stop till we stop talking about it....
#120 to #90 - anon (07/29/2013) [-]
This is pure gold. Racism happens because people talk about the problems of it. Ok, Einstein. I guess we should start pretending no one gets mistreated or abused and then it'll just go away.
User avatar #107 to #90 - youarenotspecial (07/29/2013) [-]
Not necessarily...It'd be more accurate to say racism and sexism would go away if people would drop all pre-conceived notions about race and sexuality that were spoon fed to them at birth, in addition to not judging people based off of those things. Even a person with nothing but good intentions can hold harmful assumptions because they're considered "truths." But since that won't happen, we have to talk about it.
