In the event you come from a really completely different background than mine, you may assume I am making up what I will say. For a few years, way back to I can keep in mind, in my circle of shut buddies, there have been no jokes of “derogatory or humiliating content material primarily based on race, shade, ethnicity, faith, tradition, origin, nationwide or regional origin, sexual orientation or of gender, situation of disabled or aged individual, youngsters, adolescents, girls, or any class thought of as minority or susceptible”.
Once more, relying in your atmosphere, you may discover this bizarre. Perhaps even boring. It is potential you assume we lack humour, then. All I can inform you is that I am sorry. For you. Additionally that we snort so much, till our stomachs damage. Of ourselves, of jokes, of very humorous jokes about us and our methods. Folks discuss quite a lot of shit, imagine me.
Joke is considerable and with out established limits. However no, there isn’t any “derogatory or humiliating content material” about any class “thought of to be a minority or susceptible”. I do not assume anybody even remembers that this type of “humor” exists. A dusty, boring, previous enterprise that isn’t humorous in any respect.
You see, we additionally exchanged humorous movies and whatsapp jokes, however I actually do not keep in mind receiving, from my buddies, “derogatory and humiliating content material” about minority and susceptible teams. We alternate these “invisible hazard” pranks, the dubbed monkey movies, and different such nonsense. And also you need to learn about one? We by no means bought this collectively. I do not keep in mind any conversations about what sort of humor is permissible.
I additionally do not keep in mind making any “politically right” effort to not snort. Quite the opposite, I’ve seen myself making an attempt – unsuccessfully – to have enjoyable at a Renato Piaba present, again within the final century. Similar factor with these TV exhibits which have “the fagot”, “the new one”, “the ugly lady”, “the previous lady”, with these digital laughs marking the enjoyable that for me, by no means comes. I discover that of limitless poverty. Actually unhealthy. Not humorous. Low temper. Cheesy.
Private style? No. The humor that entertains us says far more about us than that. Somebody who makes a racist joke is a racist. There is no method. Or the joke would not happen to him. Somebody who makes a misogynistic joke is evidently making his personal misogyny specific. A joke offensive to youngsters brings contempt on that particular group. Anybody who laughs goes down the very same path as a result of solely inside a standard grammar is that this laughter viable. It’s in the identical imaginary that “joke” and “public” meet. In concert events, movies or within the amateurism of “uncle do pavê”, in household gatherings.
Jokes in my pal group don’t include “derogatory and demeaning content material” about minority and susceptible teams as a result of I do not affiliate intently with homophobes, racists, misogynists and the like. As a result of I do not entice them, fortunately. And since I expel those that arrive, unaware, into my life. Somebody who tells a joke like that, amongst my buddies, will solely be embarrassed. It can win silence, as an alternative of laughter and it nonetheless runs the chance of “I do not perceive” that I like to make use of in these moments. Already tried? The outcomes are unbelievable.
So, if a man who calls himself “the king of black humor” is profitable on this nation, it is as a result of he finds correct grammar on this nation. He’s, subsequently, simply one of many many signs of our sickness and stupidity. Of the symbolic distress during which we stay. Léo Lins is fever and never meningitis, for instance. You will need to observe the fever, management the fever, however we can’t ignore the truth that fever is among the indicators of the illness and never the illness itself. If the physician solely takes care of the fever, if he solely provides antipyretics, if he doesn’t examine the rationale for the fever, the affected person could even die.
All proper, Public Prosecutor. Nice intervention to get that out of the air. Porchat, this boy, what a multitude to defend the man, huh? However none of that issues all that a lot, for my part. We have to deal with who we’re, not simply how we specific ourselves. Take away one Léo Lins, eighty seem. They’re all there, mass-produced by our mental begging. Everyone seems to be laughing at shit as a result of everyone seems to be being shit. It’s the public that should enhance. It is us. There ends this “humor” the correct method. By means of silence, by vacancy. In any other case, it would not work. Each director, each actor is aware of: the joke solely leaves the script when nobody laughs anymore.
