If you’re in love with diamonds
A simple death you’re dying
A wasted life to me
Here we are, all liars
Just hoping to get higher
Than everyone we meet

Offend the privileged all you want, but don’t fuckin’ aim that gun at people who deal with daily dehumanization and disenfranchisement. You’re not broadening their minds, you’re just making their life harder.
I’ve been seeing a lot of the “if you’re offended, that doesn’t make you right” stuff on my dash lately. I worry that people will be getting a bad mentality from that. Bennet just wrote down my feelings on the matter. Thanks for reading my mind, dude.
I don’t necessarily agree with Louis CK. There might be a context where this idea might make sense (like Lenny Bruce’s comedy in the ‘50 and ’60s), but those are few and far between. The problem with being offensive (especially to the underprivileged) is that the people being offensive don’t think. They don’t think of others, they don’t think of what they are saying/doing beforehand, they don’t even think about what their statement/action even means.
We just got through Halloween, and I kept seeing pictures of a bunch of dumb white people dressing in blackface and dumber white people defending the costumes by saying stuff like “First Amendment!”, “Freedom of speech!”, “don’t take it so seriously”, and shit like that. Their defenses didn’t cause discussion; what they are arguing in favor of by these defenses is less discussion about why the offending act is offensive.
im so in love with women and I just want to sit on men
