I’m sure none in the bloggernacle watch American Idol, so you probably won’t even know what I’m talking about.
I served my mission in England. Simon Cowell, the outspoken judge in American Idol is obviously from England. Their humor tends to be a bit different than ours. I find Simon very funny and usually right on the mark when it comes to his judgements of talent. He has been in the news lately for comments made about different contestant’s weight and gender.
I get so tired of people getting so upset over comments like he makes. Fat people are fat. Cross dressers with high voices do look like girls. Why are people so offended at the "truth"? It’s like they have never heard a comment about their weight, or gender (or those offended do-gooders who try to stick-up for these poor wounded people).
I’ve been bald since my early 20s. Have I heard any bald "jokes" or comments? Yeah plenty and then some. Am I offended, why should I be? It’s a fact of life, I’m bald. Would it really be a better world if everyone was politically correct and didn’t make comments about Terry Bradshaw and me? Maybe, but I really doubt it.
I think it would be great if those offended people would take the time and spend their efforts coming up with a great come-back instead of being so offended. Some men use their hormones for growing hair, some of us use ours for other things!
