Aside from the redundancy of "ATM Machine", is that really all that offensive?

 While it was very stupid of him to post that, it's far from the most offensive thing I've seen from a public figure.

Given that it implies that the only thing women care about is money, yeah, kinda.

True enough.  It's sexist and a bit misogynistic, but this is the era of Trump.  Worse can be found in reeking mounds all over every surface of the White House.

And obviously the "rogue staffer" excuse was employed.

I think it is implicitly.

My question is that if you're going to be intolerant in your "joking" can't you at least make it funny?

Again, I find myself going to that Seinfeld bit --

Priest:  And this offends you as a Jew?

Jerry:  No, it offends me as a comedian.

It's a bit of a double whammy.  Women are superficial and only interested in good physiques, but will put that aside if a dude has money.

"He pointed outside and said, 'the ATM Machine'"

Those usually aren't outdoors, people are already pretty shy about going ass to mouth so they don't want to be seen using a machine to do it in public.

Well, if you just pull up your pants, maybe you won't get that kind of abuse anymore.

Is he saying that the only females he can attract are gold diggers?  Because it sounds like the only females that cro-magnon can attract is gold diggers.

If the statement was true, then it wouldn't be comedic. If you don't think that statement is absurd (intended to invoke a laugh) then that is how YOU feel about women, not him.
 
2020-08-27 10:45:03 AM  
I've seen the meme of "Women judge a man by the size of his ... wallet" or similar in dozens of Fark threads and don't recall anyone here ever screaming "SEXISM!". Stereotypes are stereotypes because they have a basis in truth.

Just because you're desensitized to "women and money amirite?" [..."jokes", you called them? Granting the premise...] doesn't mean we all are, or should remain so.

// and even if that WAS the extent of the - again, you call it a "joke", but aren't those supposed to be humorous and creative and not a rehash of a line likely older than our perception of the color blue? - shouldn't we demand better?

It gets better. The Netflix She-Ra production crew is getting dragged for comments made on a panel that were construed as racist, homophobic, ableist, and sexist.

The homophobic bit was the (male) moderator giving a shout-out to a lesbian podcast with 'dyke' in its name. The ableist part was them reading a letter, from a fan, of the characters (Hordak and Entrapta) were great representation for disabled folks (they aren't). The sexist part was the comment that the NB character Double Trouble was a creep around children as DT needs to observe people before impersonating them and that's sketchy with kids. The racist part was the names of the character Bow's brothers, one named Sow, which is apparently connected to slavery.

Wow. Is that all it takes to get in trouble in Ipswich? Remind me to avoid that place. I'd be in jail five minutes after I got there.

If he was better looking those chicks wouldn't have been offended

Dude looks like he's being choked out by his own wardrobe

Anyone offended by a joke like that hasn't had her pussy grabbed enough.
 
2020-08-27 10:55:22 AM  

brizzle365: what was he supposed to do, just point to the guy hung like a mutant horse?

Then all of the mutant horses would have been offended!

I'm sorry, money still buys you pussy. And if not the actual money, but the security and stability that that money affords you. Are all women like that? No, of course not, but a lot of them still are, and of course its guys fault that they are.

Offensive or not, its still the truth.

Honestly, doesnt matter what the punchline of the joke would have been, there would always been an offended party. At least we are running to the point that we will have so many people are offended, then no one can actually be offended, which will be a gloriously bad time to be alive.


Now that's funny. You've got the whole tone of voice and everything. Great job!
 
2020-08-27 10:56:21 AM  
half a dozen complaints

So nobody is actually mad or offended.
6 complaints is less than the people who would complain about any random thing just because they don't like him or they want attention.
So nobody is actually mad or offended.
I wonder what's driving this story then?

I refuse to let humorless people dictate what we can and can't joke about. I grew up reading National Lampoon in the 60's and 70's, these people don't know what offensive humor is.

You know what they say about people who can't take a joke.

Your statement is so absurd that it might invoke a little bit of laughter.

Only if you're really, really, realllly uptight and completely, utterly ignore that the joke is self-deprecating humor and aimed at the teller, not the women.

Mugato: Aside from the redundancy of "ATM Machine", is that really all that offensive?


Agreed. They were a bit frustrated with me at the bank when I chided them on giving me a " PIN number." You said it's 4 digits, but you just in effect said 'number number.' So will I have two sets of 4 numbers? 2 numbers? 8, perhaps repeating my 4 chosen numbers a second time? I understood the PIN codes until I came in here and started talking to you."

(A different problem, but they were similarly frustrated when I complained at the hospital on getting an EKG despite there being no K in electrocardiogram:  "I can forgive that talk from laypeople, but it's a little disconcerting to hear it from the people caring for my health with complicated instruments." And of course they couldn't explain the usage to reassure me.)

// I'd be too busy getting over things
// yes, there's a WIDE gulf between "making a shiatty misogynist jape" and "kill the sluts who won't sleep with me", but do you REALLY want to start wading in there?

Can you give any examples of the racism and sexism you have perceived?
