something to honk about
I think Louis CK is hilarious, and really dark, really macabre, but funny as hell. I appreciate comedy so much. I think it is very therapeutic to laugh at difficult or confusing or even sad issues and events. And as we say at my house, “It’s funny because it’s true.”
It would be really great if people on the right and the left of the American political spectrum could make more of an effort to see the opposing viewpoint. Abortion is a great example because people feel so strongly, so completely convicted, that their opinion is the “right” one. Which is just absurd. No one is right when it comes to abortion.
If you talk about babies that are already born, everyone agrees you can’t kill them, that’s murder. But half of people think it’s okay to get rid of a fetus if it is under a certain number of weeks in the pregnancy. It’s not really okay, it’s definitely not great. So half of people think it’s okay to deny mother’s the right to make that choice for themselves. Which is not really okay, it’s definitely not great. There is just too many cases where the mother needs to have that choice available to her and make the choice herself. But half of people legit think that is murdering babies, so I can understand why they feel so strongly about the issue. So nobody is “right” when it comes to abortion.
That’s why this Louis CK bit is so funny. It’s funny because it’s true.
