Containing the word "blonde" doesn't make a joke funny



did someone get offended?



Hypothetical question Sui....this is coming out of the anti man jokes....a question of if a joke is unjustly making fun of a specific group.



when it comes to comics, i never take it really serious...
so i dont mind if anybody wants to joke on me aswell... but the key word here is joking and having fun...



ok, I will play devil's advocate:

what about all the posts on this site that have mentioned the following (stereotypes)in a "humorous" way:

men with moustaches
turkish nationalists
muslim men
burka
bed amerikans
brownies
various faiths
Turkish waiters
political leaders
political regimes
etc.

And I guess there will be some Turkish guy (or woman ) somewhere at this very minute, posting that he/she is being much maligned.

Men and women are hardly marginalised groups . Ok so blondes (men or women?) may be classed asaspecific group, but I should think half (I pluck this percentage out of thin air) are not natural blondes but bottle blondes. So some people aspire to be blonde . I myself am not blonde but would probably recognise myself in many of the blonde jokes . I wonder how many blondes tell blonde jokes, and how many blondes call them traitors to the cause?

I guess we all draw the line somewhere and our lines will be in different places, depending on our own unique take on life - our passions and pet hates. We may steer clear of certain targets altogether or limit our level of participation/tolerance. Our conscience also plays a role in how far we allow ourselves to go.

I can think of many areas/groups that I would never joke about. There are a great many personal traits of mine that I will find humour in. Someone else, with the same traits may not find my humour funny. (assuming I AM humorous).

I fear I am rambling again. No aging granny jokes PLEASE .

I think I set out to make a point, but I can't remember what it was . . .


:-S :-S :-S

How is this man hating? These are jokes based on stereotypes, chill out. At least they are not rude, like some of the jokes about women. If you are ok with jokes about women, then it's also ok to make jokes about men.



"Men are all pigs" not insulting? Actually I hate all gender jokes, and I am suprised you don't. Most of them reinforce stereotypical roles of men and women (i.e. men expecting women to cook dinner blah blah blah blah).

Yuck


What are you trying to prove canim? Yes, I hate stereotypical jokes too, but if you can't beat them, join them. In a perfect world I'd never make a stereotypical gender joke, but as long as men make sexist jokes about women, it's ok to make sexist jokes about men.


agree... it seemed like most of the post were of women (particularly blonde women) so i guess if it was ok for them to joke of things like that, it's acceptable to post jokes about men.

I highly doubt if Men with Moustaches will become a large political group though...

Mustache who?

Must you stash your mustache in my knock-knock joke?
