If You’re Offended by Bill Maher’s Tweet, Good, But That Doesn’t Make HIM the Asshole
"You’re entitled to disagree with me, too. You’re entitled to be way offended by that joke and to think of Maher — and me for defending him —as misogynists if you please. Humor is one of the most subjective art forms on the planet, and what I find hilarious you may find tremendously disturbing or offensive. But you don’t get to label someone with a term like misogynist because he said basically "sometimes people act so crazy we have no choice but to react with deadly force in kind." You can certainly call bullshit on that mentality — and I most certainly do — but can we please stop getting our panties in a collective bunch every time someone makes an analogy that we’re not comfortable with? Or barring that, can we at least all agree to do a better job of analyzing the subtext of people’s words, instead of obsessing over how they chose to couch them?"
