After some surfing around, I find very little satire jokes or particularly funny writing pieces on the internet popular enough to be picked up by google or digg written by women.. On the contrary, a bunch of those are inspired by women but created by men, usually on the influence to mock women or criticize the bitchy or ditsy side of them.. This only leads to my belief that women are more uptight and usually can’t make fun of themselves in a public manner, especially about topics regarding issues of which they may be against.. you know.. such as animal rights, abortion, children, vegetarian, politics, famous people, etc, etc, and they can layer on top of each other as well (like how I said animal rights and then I mentioned vegetarian again)..
I honestly don’t think when people like maddox write about those “sensitive topics” mixed up with some vulgar descriptions actually stand absolutely behind their statements. Why is it harder for women to see through the blunt titles, lighten up a little and laugh a little? Maybe it’s because we feel like we’re being contained in a role where we have to be more constrained towards topics like that? I have no idea really..
I also find that in Internet writings, people tend to over generalize pretty much everything they say as if that’ll make your writing more appealing and more important to its readers. But usually the truth is, whatever you were trying to pull is only relevant to a few people and only true in certain situations, maybe even just you. But this is a side note and I’m kind of off topic already.
There are a few female comedians out there, oh no, I don’t mean the ones with scripts or talk shows on TV, but the ones who perform in stand up comedy shows. This excludes Ellen DeGeneres (she’s the first one that popped up on google when I search for female comedians). Another reason why I should exclude her is that she’s playing by the genderless rule. I’m not a big fan of stand up comedy shows, so I can’t comment much on this, but I did find something worth to read. The last comment on that article is also notable. I’ll take his word for it, so the female comedians are as crude as the males and the ratio isn’t that bad, then why is it that the audience are largely occupied by men?
I’m going to come back to what I mentioned in the first paragraph now.. I have a feeling that I really shouldn’t start talking about the female comedians because I really don’t know much about them. I started thinking about it this morning reading through maddox’s website. I didn’t get offended by his writings, but mostly because I didn’t care. I can tell why a lot of people would be ticked off though and it’s funny seeing him giving people the evil replies on his website through hate mail titled entries.
I used to care about everything.. wanted to argue with anyone who doesn’t buy what I believe in.. I don’t remember when I started to change that attitude. Jenny asked me how I felt when I read the article “Apple is a piece of ___”, I honestly felt nothing. I don’t even think I’m that much of a Apple lover anymore, was I ever one? I still remember arguing with Jenny about how I think Apple out rule Microsoft, but I don’t remember why I was so passionate about it. Why do I even care what computer I use anyway. I think nowadays I say a lot of things I don’t mean, when I say I love something, I probably don’t even have much feelings towards it.. same thing goes for when I say I hate something. Another thing that annoys me that I do is that I give out random excuses. I say no to things and come up with a trivial reason that I can’t believe others would buy into. What happened to being sincere about everything you say to others.. >_>
I think I’m done.. I actually don’t care about the topic.. Who cares whether some women can’t lighten up to some guys’ jokes or not..
