That’s not quite it. To be clear, I was more pointing out that finding this thing funny, or not, doesn’t necessarily tell us something about one’s character. Someone can find it funny because they love mocking SJWs in all their forms and just want to be an asshole, or they might find it funny because they think it pokes gentle fun at some of their own excesses. Someone can not find it funny because they are a self-righteous prig, or because they are empathizing with some of the underlying sentiments and putting them in different contexts.
For context, this piece reminds me of some extremely silly people I’ve had to deal with over the course of my life who were in need of satire (as well of some my own more cringey statements as a youth who knew everything about everything). The college sophomore holding court at the coffee shop about colonization and communism while his parents paid for his tuition and car, the neighborhood crank who wanted to insert a plank about boycotting Israel into the school board meeting minutes, we’ve all either dealt with them or been them at one point, and that’s who I choose to chuckle at when reading this.
But, to be even more clear, I understand your point and where you’re coming from, so I appreciate the thoughtful conversation.
