It's come to my attention that many, often, otherwise undesirable things, are brandished as favorable aspects of personality.
You hear a lot of people saying "I'm too lazy to do it" and then belch a little laugh like it's funny to be lazy.
When did this start? Why is it perpetuated?
Or there's this fun one -- if you're in gradeschool, you've certainly heard the teacher say, while drawing a diagram on the chalkboard they'll say "and if you'll excuse my horrible art skills" or perhaps they'll quip about how "if I were a good artist, I wouldn't be teaching" and of course, everyone in the class chuckles.
How is that funny? I don't understand it.
Or the worst of them all you'll hear people talk about how crazy they are.
If they were actually crazy they'd be scared shitless.
This probably has a lot to do with arrogance. Too much self-security.
If this backwards dub applies to a male being 'secure enough with his masculinity' to engage in any feminine actvity, then certainly accusing yourself of being crazy means, in fact that you're so certain of your mental health, it borders on the very thing you're sure you're not.
Can someone maybe explain this to me?
Or maybe just give some other examples I don't care.
