Remember George Carlin's Seven words You Can't Say on TV?  I think that shit needs to be updated to Seven Words You Can't Say On Facebook because swear words pretty much mean nothing these days.  You can use all seven words banned from TV in a single sentence, like Joe Pesci trying to stumble through a difficult take out order in a Martin Scorsese film, and people won't even blink at that.

 

"Listen you shit-eating piss-taking phony Asian cunt, I said I wanted seven fuckin orders of egg rolls, and some mother fuckin wonton soup and that cocksucker better be ready by the time I get there or I will shove your chef to the ground and titty-fuck him until his heart explodes!"

 

All seven words, right there.  Bam.  That sentence would have actually gotten you thrown in jail 40 years ago if it was shown on any kind of publically accessible mass media.  But today?  The whole world could can read this post and no one cares.  The seven words have completely lost all impact.  We're probably only a few seasons away from "Fucko the foul-mouthed Muppet on Sesame Street".  Fucko will come out looking like a green Elmo wearing his hat backwards and sunglasses over his googly eyes like he's got attitude and shit, and he'll be singing;

 

One of these things is not like the other

One of these things doesn't belong

If you can't tell the difference from one of the other

You're a dumb cunt for making me sing this song

 

Today's show have been brought to you by the letters "F", "O", and the number 69.  That'll be the day when we can forever put to bed any impact those seven words ever had. 

 

But there are seven words you definitely cannot say on Facebook without a bunch of self-appointed linguistic Mutaween jumping up your asshole about it.  And those words are.

 

1.retarded

2.faggot

3.gay

4.tranny

5.fat

6.ugly

7. GTA V

 

And BTW, when I say you can't use these words, I don't just mean in the context of directly insulting someone.  I mean where if you are using it purely in an abstract context where you are not attacking anyone like "Extended warranties?  That's fuckin retarded!" People will get upset about and make pretentious graphic art posters like "Buy A Dictionary" or some supremely gay shit like that. 

 

None of these words can actually get you thrown in jail for saying them, but the point George Carlin was making about his original seven words applies to these words perfectly.  These words only have the power that someone decided they have, if you decide they're meaningless, that's what they become.  It's not a club over the head, it's a sound coming out of someone's mouth, it's pixels on a screen.  If it hurts you, it only has power because you gave it power.  And coming up with all this nonsense about trying to police it, or convince people to police their own words, only gives them more power. 

But you can also decide they're just words, and they have no more impact than any other word.  There was a time when millions of people would have argued infinitely that those seven words in George Carlin's genuinely hurt people.  They banned them.  You had to be eighteen to buy his album.  Because those words will hurt children!  Genuinely hurt children.  They truly believed if a child heard these words, they would be damaged somehow.  Like their brains will be permanently scrambled and they'll grow up to be cross dressing bank robbers and horse rapers or some bullshit. 

 

The first time I ever heard George Carlin's Seven Words You Can't Say On TV it was from a record I borrowed from one of my older brother's friends and I was only 12 years old when I heard it.  The greatest pain I felt was how much my sides hurt from laughing so hard.  I couldn't believe adults were so stupid they thought these words could actually injure us. 

 

Trying to shelter people from something gives that something power.  It becomes even more hurtful because there's no chance to develop coping skills in dealing with it.  Eventually people might actually seek to make them criminal.  Like someone could actually go to jail for posting "My fuckin tranny busted while playing GTA V in my fat-assed ugly Honda."  If that ever happens, that'll be some retarded bullshit.

The UN urging Japan to ban Manga that portrays child abuse images. Trying to look heroic chasing after pointless red herrings and soft targets. I had a look at how they define what is a child or child like image. Anything with huge eyes and abnormally large heads in comparison to body size accompanied with any kind of sexual context. Well, that's all of Manga, then. Literally all Manga. Gone.  You know, when they caught child serial killers like Peter Woodcock or Clifford Olson, do you think anyone gave a rat's ass what they scribbled in their sketchbooks? We arrested them because they raped, tortured, and murdered children, not because they made drawings.
I remember there was this argument being made by conservative puritans that goes all the way back to the 50's up to the early 90's that pornographic fantasy cartoons being a slippery slope that leads to actual sexual violence. The Moral Majority was using this as an excuse to file lawsuits against Hustler cartoons and to attack underground publications like The Furry Freak Brothers. They went after anything that promoted sex of any kind, drug use, sadomasochism, homosexuality, lesbianism, witchcraft and whatever the hell else shoved a hairy bug up their ass. In a study done on Satanic Cultism by the FBI released in 1992 actually interjected;
" hundreds of victims alleging that thousands of offenders are abusing and even murdering tens of thousands of people as part of organized satanic cults, and there is little or no corroborative evidence. The very reason many "experts" cite for believing these allegations (i.e. many victims, who never met each other, reporting the same events), is the primary reason I began to question at least some aspects of these allegations."
People like Jerry Falwell, The Bakers, and Gene Pope publisher of the Enquirer cashed in on satanic hysteria trying to link cartoons and heavy metal music to causing people to pursue forms of sexual abuse and murder in reality. If anything the study proved the opposite that when known child rapists were becoming obsessed with drawings and music, while engaging in their fantasies they actually raped less in reality.
This claim that any kind of controversial media influence can actually 'brain-wash' subjectable people to committing real acts of violence goes all the way back to the McCarthy era when the United States Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency decided to go after comic books. Dr. Frederick Wertham made all kinds erroneous claims comic books were turning children into Nazi Stormtroopers and murderers. His 'research', which has been thoroughly debunked for decades, was used as justification to drag several publishers before senate hearings to explain and defend themselves. This led to the creation of the Comics Code so the industry would self-censor to keep the government out of comic book censorship. (All of this BTW is very well documented in the movie Comic Book Confidential.)
Going after comic books is just a load of lazy bullshit in order to avoid going after the real problem. Where children are being RAPED IN DROVES because they considered second class citizens or expendable. If they do that the UN would have to confront a great deal of ugliness going on in UN host nations, like the people they just appointed to run Human Rights Council, Saudi Arabia. If the UN is so concerned about children being abused tell them to look to how children are being treated by nations that make up UN committees and clean up the shit in their own backyard first.

 When I was a kid people used to argue against things that offended them by saying;

"I have been offended, that means I have rights."

-I know that sounds really weird, but people used to say this all the time, especially when they were crusading against things they found offensive. So I had to put up with it quite a bit when I was listening to heavy metal albums, punk rock, and stuff like that.  Whenever someone said "That means I have rights" that right was always "I tell you to shut the fuck up, and you shut the fuck up. You take a knife cut your own tongue out with it right this instant and never speak again or you are actually violating my rights!"

Of course this is one of the most ridiculous bullshit arguments in the world. Being offended doesn't actually mean anything. It just means YOU'RE offended. You don't magically gain rights from being offended. Really clever people like Christopher Hitchens and Stephen Fry explained very clearly what it means to be offended. Ultimately it means nothing. It just means you are off in your own little planetary orbit, being upset, and it has no bearing upon the universe whatsoever.

And people don't like that. Or they can't deal with it. When they're offended that want mountains to move and planetary orbits to realign to see everything their way. So what do they do? They attempt to redefine what it means to be offended by making the grandiose claim "I have been offended and that means I have rights!" -because what is more important than rights?

This argument usually came from the religious conservative right wing. What has happened now is the far left wing liberal SJWs have taken this concept and redefined it for their own purpose, by calling it "Triggering". Instead of saying 'We have rights' they're making the ridiculous grandiose claim we are doing grievous bodily harm by not shutting the fuck up when we are told to by a Social Justice Warrior.

Originally 'triggering' was related to people who suffered from genuine psychological trauma, like people who suffer from PTSD, and we asked "Please don't shoot off fireworks around the veterans home, it may trigger someone". So whenever someone uses the phrase 'triggered' for themselves they're attempting to relate to something as serious as a PTSD flashback.

However, in the common use, 'trigger' is not being used to protect people from serious emotional damage. The whole point of why it exists is to abuse the fuck out of it just get people to shut the fuck up on certain topics and arguments that SJWs don't like, and try to define the playing field for what is allowed in freedom of speech.

What we need to do is to treat 'trigger' with the exact same contempt that we have for 'offended' . When someone said "I have been offended that means I have rights" -we said prove it. When someone says "I am triggered and this is doing me grievous bodily harm through crippling emotional trauma" we say "prove it". This onus is on them to prove they are suffering genuine emotional damage, and if their argument sounds like bullshit then we are free to disregard it completely. And honestly if some people actually are so terribly fragile they will actually curl up into a ball and die because they heard certain words in a derogatory manner, then they're just going to have to die.

I have always held to the belief we bear absolutely no responsibility whatsoever to the sensibilities of other people.  It is not for us to censor ourselves to cater to someone else's "Trigger".  It is for them to grow a fuckin hide and deal with that shit. 

I have been saying this ever since I drew cartoons of the prophet Muhammad, I'm saying now to people who bitch about being "triggered".

This is the fifth anniversary of Draw A Cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad Day.  As you all well know I drew several cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. Some were before the Molly Norris incident when I was commenting on the Lars Vilks incident and the murder of Theo Van Gogh.

Whenever I draw these cartoons I have always been clear I am not really sending a message to extremists. They see it, they don't see it, they burn down half the world or ignore it completely.  I don't care.  Who I'm really trying to reach are my fellow artists to send a message do not let other people bully terms as to what you are allowed to draw. We have no responsibility whatsoever to cater to the sensibilities of other people whenever we draw or express ourselves. Whenever we do hold back, we are saying we have a responsibility to censor ourselves for fear of people being offended. When you do that, the course of your freedom of speech is being dictated by other people. Which of course is not freedom of speech at all, you're just free to say what you want within limited tolerances.

Since Draw a Cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad Day the concept catering to other people's sensibilities to unreasonable extremes is bleeding all over place. This is not just the concept of the Islamic extremist or the right wing puritan.  Not in the least.  The extreme left wing has blighted us with terms like "Micro-aggressions". "Triggering". Or just labelling "Bullying" or "Hate Speech" on every single thing that doesn't see things precisely their way. It's just more of the same bullshit argument, we have a responsibility to cater to other people's sensibilities and censor ourselves so other people are not hurt by what we say.

Fuck right the hell off.

For ten years I stood my ground against the extreme right wing in the form of the Moral Majority. And we beat them bloody. Now it's the extreme left wing with social justice warriors and Anita Sarkeesian (and her followers) telling us we're all evil and shit because we like big boobies in video games and comic books.  If entire generations of little girls are going to slit their wrists all because I'm playing Grand Theft Auto, tough.  We're just going to have to raise tougher little girls with better coping skills.  Not fragile little princesses who whither and die at the sight of video games tropes.  I didn't run from the Moral Majority, I didn't run from Islam, I'm not running from this.

Draw Mohammed. Draw big boobies on cat fighting lesbians in skimpy outfits. Draw your favourite satanic heavy metal band album cover. Piss them all off. Piss everybody off.  This isn't called DeviantArt because we all lay awake at night worrying about someone out there might be offended.  Fuck'em all.  It's not your responsibility to not hurt other people's feelings. The issue isn't what you draw, the issue why are some people such an insufferably whiney bunch of pussies a cartoon can set them off so much.

Eureka! I know why we need all these :thumb362390206: neko meido (cat maids) to save the world! We're under attack by filth-loving space rodents! The cat ears and tails are to scare them off (because we all know that mice fear cats!) and the maid outfits are to fool them into thinking that we're going to clean up their mess!

I am a GENIUS Mwa ha ha ha ha!Boogie!

Or is that simply that I'm completely insane? Stupid Me!
