That’s Not Funny! – Comedy and the Sex Positive Movement

Dane Ballard #cconfun CatalystCon West - 2014


  1. Apparently some some things are OK to joke about… while other are not, but who gets to decide? What metric could a reasonable person could even use to judge something as personal humor? How should we respond if someone is offended by something we said or posted online? What are the most effective ways for us to combat attempts at humor that are antithetical to our causes? Join Dane Ballard, himself a sex-positive activist and former Comedian, as we discuss how comedy is used and miss used in our communities. We will try to flush out some general guidelines for being respectful to others without being forced to water down your sense of humor that is in itself, of tremendous value in the cause of sex-positive activism.
