Basically, for context, on Monday John Cena cut a promo on the Rock where he rapped and made a bunch of hacky gay jokes; the thread has some good people in it advocating for the critique of problematic subject matter (and plenty of gay forum goers who are sick of this shit and also sick of straight (male) posters serving as the arbiters of what is and isn’t offensive) but it just gets bogged down in a bunch of bingo pad-worthy straw-man arguments, and buzzwords that make my blood boil (i.e. “politically correct”, “hypersensitivity”, “kid gloves” “freedom of speech” etc.) eventually culminating in a bunch of half-assed justifications/excuses and a bunch of bullshit about the
semantics of language.
One thing that really irks me is something one guy says something along the lines of “If someone calls me gay when I’m not gay, it’s an insult to me” and “heterosexual men simply do not like it when it’s insinuated they do things that homosexual men and women do”….WELL WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS~?!? Er…sorry. Anyway, a “response” thread ended up being made called “THE WWE WRITING TEAM OFFENDED ME” and how they were insulted about how the Rock said Cena looked like a bowl of Fruity Pebbles (he wears garishly-colored shirts) because they like Fruity Pebbles…yeah, because being called a cereal is TOTES THE SAME as homosexuality being treated as deviant and wrong.
