Sarcasm detector broken.
It seems sometimes that no matter how thickly I lay on the sarcasm, some people just don’t get it.
And in a way that annoys the hell out of me.
But you know why, in this situation, it sort of makes sense?
I’m writing incredibly sarcastic stuff about indigenous issues, and no matter how ridiculous and overblown I am…there are deadly serious bigots out there that say even worse thing and mean it. You read their shit and you think, no way this has got to be a joke, but it isn’t. Not to them.
So sometimes when people read what I write, when I take that approach, they wonder if I’m just another Christi Blatchford. It does make me shudder a bit. But I am a sarcastic person, what can I do? I need to use my own voice, and if sometimes I’m misunderstood, that’s the price for being me.
