I watched the latest Ricky Gervais stand up show the other night ... OMG so bloody funny!!And another voice silenced because we're not allowed to say certain things, discuss certain things
I like Ricky Gervais' take. He jokes about trans people along with everyone else because he wants to be inclusive - so he includes the trans community in his jokes too.
Or better yet, Aayan Hirsi Ali's take that if you are afraid of offending that means you don't see the other person as an equal, you don't think them capable of handling a difference of opinion. It's condescending.
Personally I think jokes should be made about everyone, no-one should feel they are so fragile that they are exempt. I do have a dark sense of humour which I do appreciate some people don't but at the same time a joke is subjective & what one person will find offensive many others will find funny. If it's meant in good humour then I honestly don't see the problem but ....
