Why do people think its funny to make jokes about suicidal people?
Wylted

Pro

I assume this is one of those joke battle debates, so I'll proceed under that assumption.

1. A man went into a library and asked for a book on how to commit suicide.

The librarian said: "Screw off, you won't bring it back."

2. Did you hear about the blonde who tried to kill herself?
She jumped out a basement window!

3. I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. I immediately ran over and said "Stop! Don't do it!" "Why shouldn't I?" he said. I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!" "Like what?" "Well ... are you religious or atheist?" "Religious." "Me too! Are you Christian or Jewish?" "Christian." "Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?" "Protestant." "Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?" "Baptist." "Wow! Me too! Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?" "Baptist Church of God." "Me too! Are you Original Baptist Church of God, or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?" "Reformed Baptist Church of God." "Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915?" "Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915!" To which I said, "Die, heretic scum!" and pushed him off.

4. Q: What happened to the Irishman who tried to kill himself by swallowing 100 pain killers?
A: After two he began to feel better.

5. How did the frog die?
He Kermit suicide!

Beat those suicide jokes con!!!

None of that is funny!!! Seriously?! What if you were to say something like that to a suicidal person? What if they went home that day and committed suicide? I'm pretty sure you'd feel pretty freakin bad!!

Whether I feel bad about somebody committing suicide after I make a joke is beside the point. The debate is over whether jokes on suicide can be funny or not. The instigater does carry some burden of proof here, and they need to show that it's impossible for suicide jokes to be funny. It's not enough to prove they are damaging, or offensive. He must also prove that nobody can find a suicidal joke funny, and quite frankly I find quite a few of them Hilarious.

That's what I thought also. I was on my own at 16. The courts considered me an adult and I got custody of my siblings, but having my parents around to teach me good philosophy would have saved me a lot of trouble. If a parent is hard on you, it's typically because they have high expectations. They just want the best for you. I wish my parents would have been tough on me at your age.

well, i love my mom and she's raising me just fine, i don't need my dad to tell me how to live my life.

If you want, you can PM me to talk about your dad. I know when I was young I hated my dad, and thought he hated me, but it wasn't true.

As a parent it's not your job to be liked by your kid, but to raise them to be good adults. I'd rather raise a good adult that hates me, than a bad adult that loves me

Maybe your dad wants to be tough on you now, so that you learn and have an easy life later.
