TIL I learn reddit has less than zero idea how human emotion works.

(I mean, I didn't actually just learn this, but w/e)

Louis C.K. and Stephen Fry's bodies engulfed the Redditors' computer in a twisting cacophony of flesh and wire. Their eyes were stark with horror. Their hollowing forms screamed and wailed until the headphone jacks slid their way up the the two men's spinal columns and plugged into their ringing vocal chords. Tissue split and converged again, forming a gestalt mass of blood and steel.

Finally the Louistephen Fry.K was able to gaze inwardly, and the Redditor's post flashed into its mind like a siren call. Suddenly the beast knew why it had been called into being. A grin split up its half dozen mouths and it extended a stump towards the Redditor.

"YOUR BRAVERY HAS BROUGHT US INTO BEING, AND WE LOVE YOU FOR IT. AND WE ARE SO VERY PROUD."

The Redditor, realizing that his Edginess had brought an aspect of the Unbothered One into manifestation right there in his living room, convulsed with joyous tears. "Oh Louistephen! Now that you are here, no one shall ever take umbrage with a Funny Joek again! Gaia's trembling bosom shall no more be stained by the tears of a billion professional victims."

Louistephen and the Redditor embraced, knowing that this was the beginning of a new dawn for STEMminess and Pure Logick the world over.

(they posted some more shitty comments on reddit and then fucked off to go circlejerk to some Ann Coulter interviews, or something)

the end

Fun fact - Stephen Fry's oft quote quip about being offended was in reference to his frustration with religious debates. I doubt sincerely he'd say that in reference to, say, a LGBT person objecting to the use of a slur, especially since he's (edit: homosexual) and faced a lot of shit for that over the years.

but reddit dont curr

Sorry, but Stephen Fry is all gay.

e: source

e2: There's a big difference between the offence that Stephen Fry speaks of and that which SRS documents. The first comes from being who you are and living your life honestly. Stephen Fry likely offends some people just by his sexuality and there is no reason he should be apologetic for that. But then that person who is offended calls him an f(slur). They went out of their way to express hate for him. Simply because he exists, he's done nothing wrong.

Nothing to be sorry about, you're right. I could swear he identified as bi at one point, but you're correct and I'm incorrect.

But that's my point, they're two different kinds of offense, yet people twist that quote to toss on their fuel-fire for their crusade against political correctness.

And though I'm like 99% sure that ever present "offended" quote had a fairly specific context within a religious argument (though I've been wrong once already here), it's moot because it doesn't apply here either way.

So tell me again what it is redditors get anytime someone says a bad thing about straight white cismen?

[–]SevenLightGretchen, stop trying to make misandry happen. 15 points16 points ago

Righteously mangry.

[–]Bmonkey5 7 points8 points ago

They choose to be offended.

[–]nineleaflotus1clamhurt legbeard 1 point2 points ago

This is why I sometimes wanna touch the poop:

SRSter: white men have done some shitty shit. Brdhurt Redditor: WHY ARE YOU PROPAGATING YOUR HATE HERE, SLUR? SRSter: LOL, WHY YOU CHOOSING TO BE SO OFFENDED, BRA?

but I don't touch the poop

[–]Caligan 5 points6 points ago

But BRD forbid you call them a creep.

[–]MyMorningEjaculateLet me tell you how my peen feels! 2 points3 points ago

They consider it to hold the gravity of a rape accusation and a slur simultaneously!

[–]AllieTruist 5 points6 points ago

Does this mean that Redditors can't be offended by the creep "slur"?!

Oh, no, it only applies to jokes about women and minorities...

Being offensive is a choice not something people force upon one another.

Grow up

Good advice, adviceanimals

In reply to /u/bryanpcox on "Grow up.":

it also says a lot about someones level of thoughtfulness and consideration of others, whether they choose to swear in public, especially if there are young kids around.
