You cannot find too many folks less PC than me, BJ.
But, forgetting all the tired modern labels – there is something we used to call ‘decency’.
Having ‘a larf’ at someone else’s expense is bullying.
‘Banter’ is what happens only between mates & family you know for certain can take it. If just one feels uncomfortable in a group – it is wrong.
(As a former teacher how many bollockings have I issued over years to gobby, bullying teens who claim that their nastiness is ‘just a bit of banter, sir’.)
Yes – I know there are people out there whose sensitivities can border the ridiculous who can be a real pain – but we must try to live with one another.
‘Love thy neighbour’ takes a bit of beating.
Do I practise what I preach?
Please list all the personal insults I’ve used on Bru over the last decade or so.
