I know there are very serious themes in this thread, but I am cracking UP. That guy reading the lyrics all spoken-word, open mic night is KILLING ME.
I like that song. I think it is fun to listen to. I knew the lyrics couldn't mean anything good, but I still like it. My son likes that song and can sing along with it. (He doesn't want me to tell his dad, though, because he is only supposed to like rock - the hairier the better.)
My son doesn't want to know what those lyrics mean. He just wants to enjoy the song.
When I read the definition for "superman", I laughed. If someone really does that, it's horrible and not at all funny. But hypothetically? I'm sorry. I laughed.
Please don't suggest that anything that might possibly in some way be offensive to someone somewhere be taken off the radio and off the shelves. If the happy fluffy bunnies take over, I am so out of here. People need to learn to deal with different attitudes and behavior. I know the ways in which I'll be discriminated against; the things that have nothing to do with my personality or behavior that people will dislike me for. It is my reality and I have to find ways to cope with it. Please don't try to do that for me. We can't make the world one big padded room. Even if we could, I'd vote against it. I like my oranges sweet and juicy and getting a bad one in the bunch makes the good ones that much better.
Do you think it is funny to degrade women? I'm frankly shocked that you would even laugh at the definition. Is hypothetical racism funny too? Because I really don't see the difference between degrading someone because of their skin color and degrading someone because of their gender. Both are wrong and should not be supported or encouraged.
