Re: “Homophobic material nixed from Kennywood dive show

PittRepub, I have to agree with AmericanSocrates that humor that hurts groups of people is cheap and shows lack of talent. In answer to your quetion...certainly we all have issues that push our buttons, and the comments in the Pirates show pushed mine. I probably would not have called the park if there had been "men are dumb" or anti-Christian humor, but not because I think that is any funnier -- I don't. However, I believe that when you belong to a majority population, (white, male, middle class, Christian, etc.) it's easier to speak out against that which you find inappropriate, and certainly much easier to find acceptance around whatever ticks you off. In the article, Kennywood management pretty much said that's why the anti-gay humor was thought to be acceptable, and why I'm willing to bet anti-Christian content will never appear in the show. Finally, please ask all of the people in your D&D group what they think, not just the gay guys...don't assume this issue only matters to those who are gay. I happen to be straight myself, and you know where I stand.
