“Girls with their legs crossed, girls with their legs not crossed, girls with terrific legs, girls with lousy legs, girls that looked like swell girls, girls that looked like they’d be bitches if you knew them. It was really nice sightseeing, if you know what I mean. In a way, it was sort of depressing, too, because you kept wondering what the hell would happen to all of them. When they got out of school and college, I mean. You figured most of them would probably marry dopey guys. Guys that always talk about how many miles they get to a gallon in their goddam cars. Guys that get sore and childish as hell if you beat them at golf, or even just some stupid game like ping-pong. Guys that are very mean. Guys that never read books. Guys that are very boring— But I have to be careful about that. I mean about calling certain guys bores. I don’t understand boring guys. I really don’t.”—J.D Salinger (The Catcher in the Rye)
apparently censorship happens when people call others out on problematic language
that isn’t censorship. you have the right to say what you want. just don’t be surprised when I punch you.
Bolded emphasis mine.
Since you just talked about George Carling this reminds me of another thing George Carlin said about feminists:
Now I’ve probably got the feminists all pissed off at me because I’m joking about rape. Feminists want to control your language. Feminists want to tell you how to talk. And their not alone.I’m not picking on the feminists. They got a lot of company in this country. There’s a lot of groups, a lot of institutions in this country want to control your language…
…But, when it comes to changing the language, I think they make some good points, because we do think in language and so the quality of our thoughts and ideas could only be as good as the quality of our language. So maybe some of this patriarcho shit ought to go away. I think spokesman ought to be spokesperson. I think chairman ought to be chairperson. I think mankind ought to be human kind, but they take it too far, they take themselves too seriously,they exaggerate. They want me to call that thing in the street a personhole cover. I think that’s taking it a little bit too far. What would you call a lady’s man, a person’s person? That would make a He-man an It-person. Little kids would be afraid of the boogieperson. They’d look up in the sky and see the person in the moon. Guys would say come back here and fight like a person. And we’d all sing “for it’s a jolly good person.” That’s the kind of thing you would hear on late-night with David Letterperson. You know what I mean? So…so I think it’s an exaggeration and I like to piss off any group that take’s itself a little bit too seriously. And it does not take a lot of imagination to piss off a feminist.
The annoying thing is he sometimes said things which are so good and you wanted to like him (like his opinion on prostitution that I quoted earlier today) but then he’d just ruin it by being an ignorant douche.
"I like to piss off any group that takes itself a bit too seriously. And it does not take a lot of imagination to piss off a feminist."
Case in point. You are easier to take apart than a puzzle. I most definitely consider myself a feminist but to get so caught up on words and political correctness is ridiculous. Especially the words of a comedian. They are meant to be take with a grain of salt. They are meant to be FUNNY. And in turn, by calling him “an ignorant douche”, you are most certainly invalidating ALL of your points and proving yourself to be “an ignorant douche.”
