what do you think about south park? (mind that the whole point of that show is being offensive and in-your-face type of thing. Most jokes there are more of critic towards society than a specific group. Like they mock everyone about everything. Am i beng confusing? Lol i don't know how to explain myself)
punching down (joking about marginalized people) is bigotry. you’re making fun of somebody who everybody makes fun of, whose life is already shitty enough.
punching up is radical, as it is an active “fuck you” to the power system, and working on fighting against it.
punching in every direction is…. just lazy? south park isn’t “comedy”. it’s “how many people (minority or non-minority) can i offend in 20 minutes LOL?”
