That picture makes me angry for some reason.... Maybe it's the lack of logic in it, or trying to explain things with religion that can't be. I know it's supposed to be a joke.. but it evokes all of the wrong feelings.

OK, try this thread, which starts with the words on that poster, followed by the comment:

Quote
Plain and simple. Any attempts to put homosexuality out of the equation yields weird results, like a huge six mile wide asteroid impacted 65 million years ago. This is similar to how you get weird results (as insanely large numbers) in mathematics if you divide anything by zero (which is a sign that you did something wrong).

Looking at the sites that this image is on, it's not clear whether it is a parody or not.  I tend towards parody, because most genuine posters of that sort that I've seen make a point of advertising the church they're from.

It's all awesome music, especially with the "ethnic" instruments in it :)
What makes an èrhú an "ethnic" instrument? If a Western folk-rock band included a violin in their line-up, would you describe that as an "ethnic" instrument? If not, why not? This is essentially a less malign version of the attitude that leads racists in Australia to describe Australians like me as "ethnics".

As for the gay dinosaurs, presumably whoever came up with that drivel thinks there must have been a awful lot of gay... well, everythings to cause the Permian Extinction Event...

Why wouldn't a violin be referred to as an ethnic instrument? There is in fact severe criticism of the mass media's endless concentration on Saxon violins.

I have it from a reliable source that the difference between a violin and a fiddle is the music you are playing with it (if it is music from the 'respected white tradition, it is a violin...)

"Ethnic" means "not a part of white culture".  Using the word to describe contributions from non-white-western cultures is a form of othering.  The only thing the word does is stress that this item is 'weird' or 'different' because it is not from white culture.

Most of the things which a Chinese person might very well label as "ethnically Scandinavian instruments" would more likely just be called "traditional" or "folk", so yeah. Very different approaches to the same kinds of situations depending on if it's "us" or "them".

Speaking of which..



(The Scandinavian version of the second one I'm thinking of is the "Drejelire".)

Dutch: draailier. How lovely language can be, sometimes.

As for the dinosaurs ... that's basically what the Onion thread is all about, right? We climbed so far up our own assholes as a species that we cannot tell the difference between satire and reality, sometimes. The dinosaur thing, well, it can go either way, which is a sure sign that something needs to change. Attitudes about science, for instance.

"Ethnic" sounds ... problematic. Maybe "old" or "not often seen, these days" or something would be more accurate.

Something stupid:
