I feel like these kind of jokes are only to be made by those whom the joke affects. For example, I’m bisexual, so I often make jokes about that and I don’t mind other people laughing along. But I never make jokes about, for example, being gay or black, because I think it’s not my place to joke about that. I didn’t go through their struggles, so I would never laugh at them. I think that it’s just another way of discriminating and then telling the affected people that they “simply don’t have a sense of humor”.
