For Another....

Before I publish anything on this site, I try to think... will it offend?  Does it promote stereotypes?  Does it encourage discrimination?

Of course, there's a famous saying - I think it goes like this:  You can please all the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.  Truer words were never said.   

I prefer to try to promote understanding, love, togetherness and understanding, of others and one's self.  Sometimes I tidy up jokes and inspirational pieces up a little and use them.  Sometimes I dither and eventually lose them. Some I just delete even though they are obviously funny or interesting.   I publish some religious inspirational pieces,  even denominational, but not if it implies that someone else's beliefs are invalid.  Sometimes I miss the mark and offend someone.  Sorry.   (Unless you're feeding your family junk food, and then watch out!!!)

Jokes about any particular ethnic or religious group, nationality, color or "persuasion" as the saying goes, aren't printed.  This includes "blonde" jokes that imply that blondes are dumb, most but not all of which are sent in by men.  I have nothing against blondes; a large percentage of the women in my family are blonde although I am not.   I do think it's a waste of time and possibly a little ditsy to bleach one's hair blonde, and then undergo constant retouches (or show ugly roots), but then that's me.  I think most women would be better off improving their mind, volunteering their time or money, learning another skill or doing something else useful with their time and extra cash, but hey, if it makes them happy?  Why not?  I fully realize I'm the one out of step, and happily so.

So "blonde" jokes get changed or trashed.  Except this one I got in an advertisement.

Why are "blonde" jokes so short?

So men can remember them.

Ha!  Keep that in mind.
