This community is predicated on the belief that the best way to demonstrate the absurdity of something is by assuming the position of one taking it seriously.

I got the idea from this biography I'm reading of Albert Camus, which described the theater of the absurd.

To defuse the power of unfounded biases and encourage people to take things less seriously is, ultimately, unifying and, in this case, really funny.

Also, to blame one's insecurities on the insensitivity of the world at large is a self-destructive denial of how responsible for our own feelings we are. Bigotry isn't going anywhere, and crying about hurt feelings isn't going to do anything for anyone.

Celebrate bigotry and revel in prejiduce.

It's fun.
