No, I don't really have magical thinking per se, I'm talking about the idea that even edgy jokes said behind one's back is somehow an insult to the person.
Ugh, this is still in the back of my mind. To be fair though, I tell myself this: that context is everything and if ever a potentially offended party caught the joke-maker red handed, he/she could say that.

BTW, I can't be the only one with this theme, eh? With outrage culture and all...

As you could see, the "voodoo" kind of thinking, I haven't fully let go of it.

Re: As someone with this theme, could you tell me how...

Come to think about it, my OCD could be quite lopsided sometimes. Like, I could be afraid of laughing at dark jokes because they're disrespectful, and yet I love to make dark hypothetical situations on Quora about death and stuff, and one might argue that's also disrespectful. And pretty much the same thing.

Iíve had a lot of OCD themes but this isnít one of them so maybe I can offer the Ďnormal personí part (for once!)

Dark humour is actually a personal favourite of mine, and my parters too. There are many jokes that we make that would not be appropriate in certain spaces, say for example a work place environment or where you donít know the people and their views. Finding things that someone else may find offensive funny isnít really an issue. Being deliberately offensive to a group of people is.

In an attempt make a somewhat relatable situation Iíll describe something that offended me but is actually funny, when I have been online in certain groups for shared hobbies someone made a quip about being Ďtoo OCDí and referencing other mental illnesses in their post, their post was funny and also offensive to those of us that do suffer - I could very much see both sides and I chose to laugh, where other members of the group chose to call the person out and to be offended. Itís all about perception and personal choice. I digress a little from my point but I hope it helps.

My main point is, in private or like minded company itís absolutely fine to make whatever jokes/find them funny, I like to think of myself as a caring and nice individual but I still enjoy dark and twisted humour - even about themes that directly effect me.

Laugh! Itís good for us!

Positive vibes,

Mouse
