I understand where you are coming from.
Things that were once commonplace and everyone understood that it was just humor are now weapons to the PC crowd, so as normal people we now have to
keep our guard up about it. Lots of commonplace things are different.
I used to let my children walk two blocks unattended and play at a city park.
Nowadays, DHS would show up and take them away from me.
I used to have a gun or two in my car in high school... everyone did.
Nowadays, that would require a SWAT response and jail time.
I used to be able to walk the streets of San Fransisco at night, knowing that as a woman I would be OK.
Nowadays, that is a recipe for rape.
I used to be able to laugh at an off-colored joke a comedian said.
Nowadays, I don't even know if I can use the term off-colored without someone being triggered.
So yes, I get it.
A pity other posters seem not to want to either understand or acknowledge it.
And for the record, types of art are censored in the USA now.
Piss Jesus, for instance, is art. A manger scene in a city square is taboo, however.
You know..the types that are not politically correct.
