"Every girl is bi. You just have to find out if it's polar or sexual."

Hi millennials and zoomers, this is a thing that we call a joke.

I don't know if you've heard of the concept; but, that's what it is. It's not something to be fact-checked. If you're one of the two percent of women on OKCupid who isn't bi, you don't have to be offended by the joke because it doesn't acknowledge you.

You don't have to be offended; but, you're welcome to be. You're welcome to be crestfallen in reaction to such a horrible joke. You might think less of me for typing it. I think less of you for being offended by it. That's life.

That's it. If people tell jokes, there's a certain risk that some people wont laugh. This is the joke that sparked the infighting at The Washington Post. Seriously, an employee at The Washington Post got so offended by this joke that she made it her number one priority for more than a month.

I can honestly say that this joke has yet to make me chuckle. I need jokes to be more offensive to have a reaction. A joke like, "What do women and hurricanes have in common? When they come they're wet and wild and when they leave they take your house and your car." is more up my alley.

I'm a millennial. Can we please not brand ourselves as the generation that killed humor?
