I’m sorry, but how is this not clear? How is the satire not obvious in the statement? How can anybody actually take it seriously?
Look at my picture. Read my posts.
I am a straight, white, cis-gendered, able-bodied man. Despite my extreme anxiety, possible depression, almost-worrying lack of self-respect, and propensity for self-deprecation as humor, I don’t actually hate myself. I’ve been there, oh yes. There was a point in my life where I hated myself. But I don’t anymore.
And no, I do not hate straight, white, cis-gendered, able-bodied men.
I’m pretty sure that the statement qualifies as satire, or at least as an absurdist statement. I use it to make fun of homophobia, racism, transphobia, ableism, and misogyny. I use it to force people to face, head on, all of these forms of bigotries.
It also proves to be a really good litmus test. I find that the people who are offended by the statement are bigots… either subconsciously or consciously. And I can block them easier. It also lets me find friends, because the people who get it turn out to be awesome.
And that’s all I’m going to say from this point forward.
“I hate straight, white, cis-gendered, able-bodied men” is my tagline and my motto. So expect to see it everywhere you see me. Expect to be drowning in it. I’m going to over-do it and make it annoying, because it is, IMO, the funniest thing I’ve ever come up with. I’m proud of that fact because I don’t actually consider myself funny. So yes, I’m going to over-use it, and proudly so.
I think that maybe I should get it on a shirt…
