Translation: "I am aware that I've said something incredibly stupid and offensive and I'm going to pre-emptively attempt to defuse the situation by labelling anyone who wants to call me out on it as a 'douchetard'."
Nope. I've said something perfectly normal that has offended nobody for years and years, until internet know-it-all-ism appeared and was super effective.
Now everybody is a bra-burning crusader! (because they read how to do it on wikipedia somewhere)
..Not to mention that "sarcasm doesn't work over text." Which gets exaggerated by people looking to be offended. They stand around with a chip on their shoulder waiting... just waiting... to pounce. But we're not supposed to think that the hair triggered anger is a problem. No, it's the unsuspecting person who triggered it that has a problem. I deal with this crap so often now. "Oh me yarm, YOU SAID THAT YOUR WIFE DID THE DISHES, YOU MONSTER!"... "Oh me yarm, GIRLS CAN GOLF TOO!" (Said by a girl that has never golfed and is offended for not getting invited... a hallmark of being a woman)... "WHY DOES THAT GIRL IN THAT ONE VIOLENT VIDEO GAME HAVE TO WEAR SHORT SHORTS?"... Nobody cares. Fact of the matter is that boy vs. girl, man vs. woman, husband vs. wife humor works. People patently ignore decades upon decades of trends just to suddenly explode because they are surprised that Redd Foxx likes to eat *CENSORED*.

That's called trolling.
