Original Post

and I'm so proud of that! I don't get mad when I hear a man make a 'woman' joke. I don't care if you call me a 'cracker'. It doesn't bother me if you think I'm a 'fat,lazy American'. I'm not going to be offended if you stereo-type me for being blond. You know why? Because at some point in my 30+ years, I have likely been every one of those things. So what? I can laugh at myself. I'm not afraid to say that I've done some really stupid, insensitive things.

However, be aware that I am likely going to use many politically incorrect terms, too. It's not because I'm racist or sexist or any other 'ist'. It's because, sometimes, it's just funny, or fitting, or maybe I'm just trying to get a point across and that's all I can come with on short notice.

I think the whole world needs to take a collective deep breath and quit worrying about words and labels.

Carlos Mencia is my HERO!

Okay...

I think I'm done. Go ahead. Blast me. I can take it!

I am so agreeing with you.

OH it was awesome plus I got a chance to meet him downstairs after the show. LOL He was still making me laugh. But I understand what you are saying though. People just take things too seriously.

Yes, but if your unPC-ness hurts other people, you might want to rethink your game plan. =P
