I am curious about this phenomenon where someone cracks an inappropriate joke, and then when the concerned party is unhappy about it, they are attacked for "being too serious" or "lacking a sense of humor" Also when the insensitive party is reprimanded for their behaviour they throw their arms up in the air and defend their "right to laugh". . I am not looking to flame anyone or troll or whatever. I am genuinely curious about the psychology behind it and how this attitude is impacting our society today. I am going to be dumping any articles or findings here, until I synthesize an opinion of my own. You're welcome to read, participate and comment.
