Often when I tell people I simply don’t like something, whether it’s a joke, book, game, or TV show, they tell me that it’s because I don’t ‘get it’ or understand it. But I think it’s possible to understand something and still not like it, just like it’s possible to ‘get’ a joke and still not find it funny. Like I ‘get’ racist jokes – I understand the stereotypes you’re trying to perpetuate and where that all comes from. It’s probably because I underderstand that better than the type of person who would tell such jokes that I don’t find them funny.
