pride

If there’s one thing you should take away from this past weekend, it’s that the gays don’t really give a shit. All they really care about is partying and having fun. And that’s something I can get behind. Something I can’t get behind are people who are unwilling to embrace their stereotypes and realize that when other people joke about them, it’s just good ol’ fashion ribbing.

It would appear as though most people have got into the habit of taking everything seriously and finding something to get upset about, no matter how stupid. Just look at any comment section on here. Similarly, people have forgotten what it’s like to not give a shit and be able to laugh at anything. Even if it is at the expense of themselves. It’s a crying shame, because it isn’t just a great way to keep your blood pressure low and avoid looking like an uptight prick. It’s essential in order to make sure our society doesn’t turn into the dullest one ever. Luckily, the gays are on board.

I don’t know what it’s like in the rest of the world but here in San Francisco, the Pride Parade isn’t a time for homosexuals to act like silly little faggots and then scream “Take-backsies!” the following day. It’s exactly what it sounds like, a parade to show how proud they are to be gay and everything that entails. If you ask me, they probably don’t really need a parade to do this. They wear their kinks and sexual preferences on their back pockets and have no problem discussing them with anyone who asks. They’ll take any excuse to party as well. So, why the hell not have a parade? But the important thing is that they understand the image they’ve created and have no problem joking about it.

For some reason stereotypes are considered one of the worst things in the world. They’re outdated and offensive exaggerations used to demean and oppress minorities. Yet, whenever a particular group holds a parade for themselves, they trot out every single last one of their stereotypes with pride. You would think by doing this they’d be admitting there was some truth behind the ones that have been assigned to them. And in doing so, you would have to imagine they’d be comfortable enough to joke about them with someone outside of their specific group. Unfortunately, that doesn’t tend to be the case, except with gays.

I’m not going to pretend there aren’t some, or even a lot of, gay guys who are offended by the word “faggot” or get upset over gay jokes. But most fags can take a joke and love casually throwing insults back and forth with someone who doesn’t suck cock. It’s in their nature and one of the best things about them. I’m not so sure if this is the case with lesbians. But gays, like the italians, irish, and chinese; are willing to accept their stereotypes and let others poke fun at them. I’m not sure why some other groups are incapable of doing this and noticing how gay it makes them look. But it would make life a hell of a lot easier and more enjoyable for them if they did.

Maybe it’s something they’re born with or maybe it’s a trait they acquire after years of being bullied and dealing with sweaty nut-sacks covered in coarse hairs. But all that matters is that gays are able to handle a joke and couldn’t be bothered if it’s “insensitive” or not. They don’t get their panties in a bunch. They just give you that look and fire one right back. They’re fucking JOKES, for Christ’s sake. Even if it is a word that carries “years of hate and unspeakable violence” they understand the jabroni saying it is trying to include them. I guess it’s them just being sassy, but every “oppressed group” could do themselves a favor and take a page out of the gays’ book.

People need to stop denying their stereotypes and start loving them. Embrace that shit. The only other option is for everyone to avoid their stereotypes at all costs. That way, nobody could joke about them and if they did it wouldn’t make any fucking sense. The joke would fall flat and you couldn’t be offended because you wouldn’t understand it. I don’t want to live in that world though. Can you imagine what it would be like if fags didn’t like to party and weren’t promiscuous and sassy? How gay would that be?

    If ‘gays can handle a joke’, what’s with all the Stazi-esque persecution? I think that’s sorta the opposite…
