my sisters and their friends don’t understand why I don’t like family guy anymore
so this is the best analogy i could come up with
Family Guy was like this friend you knew as a little kid. He seemed pretty cool, and told a lot of edgy, offensive jokes, but in a way that seemed to poke fun at why it was offensive. It was a new kind of joke, and you thought this was the coolest kid you ever knew. But when Mom overheard the jokes, she said he couldn’t come over to play anymore, so you didn’t tell him for a while.
Years later, you’re an adult, and you decide ‘hey, i’m grown up, I can decide who to hang out with!’ so you track down that old friend of yours. He hasn’t changed a bit! He’s still as edgy as ever, and life is good. But the more time you spend with him, he begin to realize maybe you were perhaps a bit blinded by nostalgia. He’s not as funny as you remember… and he only seems to be getting more offensive. But you smile and nod, knowing he has good intentions.
But as you meet his other friends you begin to realize no one has ever called him out on his offensive jokes. Whenever someone does, they get shunned by the whole group, and your friend still doesn’t learn his lesson. In fact, he only gets worse. The jokes get so offensive they’ve stopped being funny. There’s only so many ways you can say the same stuff without looking horrible, and he’s crossed that line. But because people keep listening to him, he doesn’t stop. When you’ve finally had enough, you leave him, and everyone accuses you of being unable to take a joke.
