Auf gender-universum erklärt JTK noch einmal, warum er es klasse findet, kein Blatt vor den Mund zu nehmen. Der Beitrag ist ganz gut durch einige darin vorkommende Wörter charakterisiert: “Depp”, “Scharlatan”, “Schund”, “
ZwanghafteGemäßigte”, “Irrenhaus”, “Verblendungszustand”, “geisteskrank”, “hypochondrisch”, “Therapiestätte für Gemäßigte”.
Das erinnerte mich an einen Beitrag des großartigen John Finnemore, der in 2 Minuten eigentlich alles dazu sagt, was es zu sagen gibt.
Für die, die lieber lesen als hören, hier ein Transscript:
JF: I know, like the other day – my nephew got me to play tennis with him and I was awful
KATE: Oh no!
JF: Yeah, he wiped the floor with me. He’s only twelve
KATE: God, poor you
JF: I know. I mean, I was never brilliant at it, but I used to play every weekend, I was alright.
KATE: I suppose you’re just out of practice
RUDE MAN: Well yeah, and also you’ll have put on a lot of weight.
RUDE MAN: Uh, well, no offence but you are quite fat now. I assume you weren’t when you were playing tennis every week.
JF: Sorry, have we met?
RUDE MAN: No. Oh, sorry, yeah I should have said – I’m the sort of person that likes to speak my mind.
RUDE MAN: Yes, that’s the thing about me, I’m afraid I don’t really hold with political correctness. I mean, when you think about it, why should I have to filter what I say because someone else might not like my opinions? No, I just call a spade a spade… Oh, Kate’s gone.
JF: Oh, well that’s very, um…refreshing, I suppose.
RUDE MAN: I think so, it’s more honest, isn’t it?
JF: Do you find people sometimes get offended?
RUDE MAN: Well, sometimes, yes, but the way I see it, I speak as I find and if people don’t like it, that’s their problem, really
JF: I agree, actually. You’re quite right
RUDE MAN: I’m glad to hear it. Because I’m that kind of a Marmite person actually, people either love me or hate me.
JF: Yeah, I bet they do. Well, um, if you’ll excuse me…
RUDE MAN: What?
JF: Well I need a wee.
RUDE MAN: Oh right, okay.
JF: Excuse me. (undoes zip) So, how do you come to know-
RUDE MAN: What- what are you doing?
RUDE MAN: You said you were going to the loo
JF: No, I didn’t, I said I needed a wee. Oh, sorry, I should have said. I’m the sort of person that just wees on the floor.
RUDE MAN: That’s disgusting!
JF: Yeah, that’s the thing about me. I’m afraid I don’t really hold with going to the loo. I mean, when you think about it, why should I have to go off to a little room because someone might not like my urine? No, I just wee where I stand. It’s more honest, isn’t it?
RUDE MAN: But you’re splashing me!
JF: Yeah, well people do get splashed sometimes, but the way I see it, I urinate where I like, and if other people don’t like it that’s their problem, really.
RUDE MAN: You’re disgusting!
JF: Yeah, well I’m kinda like a Marmite-flavoured toothpaste person – people hate me.
