Hey, you. Yes, you…..old white dude, sitting grumbling in the corner. Yeah, you heard me. Well you are old, and you are white, and you do spend a hell of a lot of time making up shit to grumble about. So here is the thing. No-one is out to get you. They really are not. But it seems that you are out to get a whole load of other folks. Yeah, yeah I know. You say that you do not intend any harm by what you say or what you do. As you ‘really’ do not mean to ‘offend’ the big cry babies, to whom your barbs are loaded, and they should hitch up their big man pants and take it on the chin.
See here is the thing, old white (and probably rich) dude, you do not get to decide what other people should find offensive. I know you really want to have that power. I mean REALLY want to. But tough. The ship has sailed on the bad old days of bigotry and ignorance. Today the oppressed minority gets to stand up and say hell no. And guess what, there is not a single thing you can do about it. So old white dude, sitting grumbling in the corner, your dog whistles, your misogyny and sexism, your homophobia and islamaphobia, we do find you offensive. We get to decide what is and is not offensive, in 2013 you do not get to decide that for us anymore.
