The Innocuous Issue

The title of this week’s Salient was “Offensive?” The answer was a resounding “No.” Nothing in this issue offended anyone. Attached is a list of mild, inoffensive content:

1) Crass sexual jokes about Christians, specifically: nuns. About as edgy as ripping out Rebecca Black or the Westboro Baptist Church.

2)An article discussing whether the word “cunt” is the last truly offensive word. Maybe back in 2006.

3) An article criticising the feminist movement – for being worthwhile and relevant, but too insensitive towards ethnic minorities and transgender people. As a white, cis-gendered, heterosexual male, I was going to be offended but then I stopped and checked my privilege.

4) A recipe for Fig and Pear Pie. Disturbing stuff.
