Why is what has happened to us funny to so many people?
Today I was on a bus with my Junior class today and I heard 3 jokes about r***. One was one of those stupid, awful sloth memes going around, and 2 were comments like "*pokes someone* haha I'm finger r**ing you!" NOT FUNNY PEOPLE!!!!!I was having a pretty crappy day before this happened, and it has literally ruined my weekend.
Usually I'm pretty shameless in scolding people for using this word lightly, and that's what I did with one of the kids who told a joke...but is it weird that I feel really bad for not telling off the girl who was passing around the meme? I know it's not my responsibility to do this, but I feel like I should have.
Finally, pretty much the only boy I've let myself be friends with LAUGHED at the meme. It hurt my feelings so much. I don't think he realized that by laughing at this he would be offending me so deeply..but I really do believe that he should have thought of all that I had told him before just accepting the meme as funny. It's just that I trust him and have confided in him at times, and he has completely crushed that by thinking something like that was funny.
Will this ever stop...will people ever realize that it is not appropriate to say things like this in public?
