For real. Knock it off.
Seriously don’t understand how no one realizes that saying, “No offense, but…” or “Not to be racist, but…” or “Not to be anti-feminist/rude/mean/etc………”
Like, just because you make some kind of half-assed caveat before you say something offensive (or rude or racist or what have you) doesn’t mean that thing isn’t? Obviously?
Last weekend some random girl turned to me while watching too presumably gay guys dance and said, “Not like I don’t believe in gay marriage, but I think most gay guys are just gay because girls would never have sex with them.” Really? As if gay marriage even had anything to do with it, and even still, your ‘support’ for gay rights doesn’t negate the blatantly homophobic and just plain ignorant thing you said right after. Sorry.
Next time someone says this to you I dare you to be like, “Not to completely call out your blatantly obvious ignorance, but what you said kind of offended me.”
