Today 19 June I opened my email to discover a friend had sent me the following missive. What are your thoughts and comments about the item?
It had been snowing all night - So ......................:
8:00 am I made a snowman.
8:10 A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow woman.
8:15 So, I made a snow woman.
8:17 My feminist neighbour complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere.
8:20 The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it could have been two snow men instead.
8:22 The transgender ma..wom...person asked why I didn't just make one snow person with detachable parts.
8:25 The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with.
8:28 I am being called a racist because the snow couple is white.
8:31 The Muslim gent across the road demands the snow woman wear a burqa.
8:40 The Police arrive saying someone has been offended
8:42 The feminist neighbour complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needs to be removed because it depicted women in a domestic role.
8:43 The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with eviction.
8:45 TV news crew from the ABC shows up. I am asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I reply, "Snowballs" and am now called a sexist.
9:00 I'm on the News as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobe sensibility offender, bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather.
9:10 I am asked if I have any accomplices. My children are taken by social services.
9:29 Far left protesters offended by everything are marching down the street demanding for me to be beheaded.
Moral: There is no moral to this story.
It's just the world in which we live today and it is going to get worse. End
I'm now going to the Tai Chi group to overcome my grief.
This is a slippery-slope fallacy. You can still build a snowman and there is in fact no appreciable pushback or gaslighting about your motives. It's just a snowman.
The only REAL agitation would be if, say, a gay couple made two same-sex snowmen in a lascivious embrace, and guess where THAT pushback would come from. Not the PC crowd, I can tell you that.
This is very similar to Christians claiming persecution when all anyone is doing is not buying their bullshit, and calling bullshit on it. The world is not a dystopian nightmare for conservatives other than in between their ears. They are still free to have married missionary position-only sex with members of the opposite gender, and even to exclude people who disagree with them on that score from their private clubs without being accused of discrimination. No presidential candidate thus far has dared to at least not pretend to be a practicing Abrahamic theist and still hope to get elected.
What they can't for some reason abide is other people disagreeing with their bigoted self-ratifying nonsense, even if they themselves still get to be self-ratifying bigots.
I am a self identified Yeti and I find this whole "joke" offensive as for many years the term abominable snowman has been used as a derogatory term for my kind.
I have called the police and informed them of your hate crime.
