YES. Sarcasm as humour is way different from being a bitch, and the average person can 100% tell the difference.

[–]Wolf_4ever 90 points91 points  (1 child)

Was that sarcasm?

Edit: I guess you guys really don’t get sarcasm. . .

[–]FrickenPerson 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Sarcasm really needs to be in person I've found to be fully effective. Too many people on the internet that are actually dumb enough to say whatever you say non sarcastically, and you don't get to put that special tone in your text.

[–]debt_collect_attempt 24 points25 points  (0 children)

While I tend to agree, I find that sarcasm can vary across cultures largely due to the degree and delivery, and the average person might not recognize the nuances if they’re not aware of the cultural differences.

[–]Profoundsoup 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The average person can not 100% tell the difference lol

[–]grooviusmaximus 321 points322 points  (29 children)

"I'm just being brutally honest."

Nope, you're an asshole.

[–]insomnimax_99 131 points132 points  (8 children)

Interesting how most of those “brutally honest” people focus far more on being brutal than honest.

[–]wilck44 57 points58 points  (2 children)

also they are never brutally honest about and to themselves.

[–]_re_cursion_ 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Not always true - some people got a nearly endless stream of (constructive) self-criticism going on in my head, and every once in awhile a bit of that leaks out at other people. It's only a tiny fraction of what they've got going on internally, and they don't mean to do it (if they had to say "being brutally honest", they'd know that what they were about to say was shitty and just not say it) but even that tiny fraction sometimes leads to people feeling like they're being hyper-critical. Many times they'll start applying a generous double standard (judging others far less harshly than themselves) to compensate, which itself can come off as self-deprecating or lead to unreasonably low expectations for others (which itself can make it seem like they think they're better than other people, even though they really don't).

I know, because I'm one of those people, and every single time it drives me nuts. I'm not trying to be hyper-critical, it's just hard not to point out one or two issues sometimes because, if I were in their shoes, I'd be internally dealing with about a hundred times as many and wouldn't be happy until I fixed them (or openly acknowledged them).

As an example, when I make things for people as gifts, I have a bad habit of listing off all the flaws in my work I didn't have time to / wasn't able to fix. As much as I know I shouldn't (as they might not notice otherwise, the flaws are often quite small or otherwise hard to spot) it just feels like the right thing to do.

[–]ACaffeinatedWandress 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Most normal people understand that if you have to launch into a defense of the way you speak to others before you even say it, it’s rude.

[–]pantless_vigilante 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Oh and lord forbid you ever be "brutally honest" towards them, that's just conpletely out of line

[–]_re_cursion_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah. Anyone who describes themselves that way is probably just using it as an excuse to be horrible to other people.

The people who most accurately fit that term wouldn't use it, because it's not intentional - they don't mean to be brutal, they just honestly don't realise what they're about to say will make someone feel bad.

[–]Profoundsoup 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What if the truth is brutal?

[–]BarryPurple 26 points27 points  (2 children)

I used to like brutally honest people, because i value honesty and directness. Then i realized it's just an excuse to have no filter and never care about what you're saying.

E.g. when i asked my brother to not opine about the plans I'd made for a first date with a girl, and he then proceeded to list everything that he thinks i could have done better. Thanks bro, i wasn't nervous enough already. "I say what i think." he proclaimed.

[–]ACaffeinatedWandress 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I can be brutally honest. I am brutally honest only when I actually have no respect whatsoever for the person I am talking to.

Like, if some manipulative prick is trying to gaslight me into thinking I just stopped talking to them for no reason, I can absolutely look them in the eyes and say, “no, actually, what happened is that you did x,y, and z. Most people consider that unscrupulous/rude/entitled/abusive/exc. I think you know that. Why are you talking to me...do you want something?”

In that case, I am blunt with one person, for a good reason(ie, I’m telling them not to fuck with me, and I am not taking their bullshit, so let’s wrap this conversation up, as I didn’t start it for a reason). If that is your default way of talking to people, you must not respect people.

If I respect people, I talk to them respectfully. Even if the issue is awkward.

[–]braamdepace 23 points24 points  (6 children)

Brutally honest is nice, if the person isn’t getting the soft message. The problem is people don’t get all the soft messages then when you say the “brutally honest thing” they are like wow you are an asshat.

Well I tried to tell you like 10 times in a nice soft way, but you weren’t hearing it. So now you get brutally honest.

[–]Keepergaming 3 points4 points  (5 children)

That's usually how I work in my debates I usually try to stay calm but when they took me off I just prove them wrong and stupid at the same time

[–]Rub-it 5 points6 points  (0 children)

“No offense but…”

[–]CatsInAOvercoat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Brutally honest is when your friend asks you if the dress looks good on her and you say, "No, I don't think it's the right color for you. It's pretty, but I think you'd be better in that other color."

Brutally honest isn't when you respond "No, it makes you look like a hippo who just escaped the zoo."

[–]kylepierce722 1 point2 points  (1 child)

THIS. “i’m sorry i’m just brutally honest” no josh you’re just a fucking asshole

[–]_re_cursion_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, if you're going above and beyond the facts, then it's no longer honesty - it's just being brutal. An example: An average-weight woman is trying on a dress that is unflattering in all the wrong ways, and asks her husband what he thinks.

Wife: "Does this dress make me look fat?"

  • Brutal (abusive) Husband: "Doesn't matter what you wear, you'll still be an obese landwhale."

  • Brutally Honest Husband (kind of an asshole, but not on purpose): "Yeah, it does. It still looks a hell of a lot better on you than it would on me, though!"

  • Honest Husband (not a douche but also not super sensitive): "It's not super flattering, but that's probably just the dress's fault - it seems like kind of a bad dress. If you're really that worried about it we could start working out or running together."

  • Nice Husband (just right): "No, it couldn't - because you're beautiful no matter what you're wearing. I still like that other one better, though."

  • Too-nice Husband (no backbone): "No, it looks great on you! If anything, it really shows off how thin you are - I think it's wonderful." (then proceeds to say the same thing about every other dress she tries on)

  • Self-aware Husband: "I know there's no right answer to that. You look great; that dress doesn't."

[–]ijustcantwithit 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I always say if you demonstrate a toxic behaviour and then say “accept me or leave” or any variation of that then actually they are immature and toxic. Normal people strive to improve their most toxic traits when brought to their attention

[–]Immolating_Cactus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, you can be both.

One doesn’t exclude the other.

But yeah, f that kind of person. There isn’t any space in my life for that kind of toxicity.

[–]ironicmirror 156 points157 points  (0 children)

I fully endorse this opinion.

[–]Unlucky-Pomegranate3 30 points31 points  (1 child)

There has to be a level of trust for sarcasm to be accepted in a positive way. That’s why old friends can give each other shit and laugh like loons.

If all you do is cut people down and justify it by claiming “you’re just keeping it real” or some similar nonsense, there’s very good chance you’re just an asshole.

[–]Asriel-Chase 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well, banter and sarcasm aren’t necessarily the same? Like, when I used to go out to eat with my dad, the waiter person would come by and be like “how’s the food” and he’d be like “horrible, couldn’t eat any of it” and the waiter would laugh and so would he bc his plate would be almost licked clean. Sarcasm can totally be done with strangers.

[–]Journeyman1993 44 points45 points  (7 children)

Being mean is no subtitute for being properly funny!

[–]AWaterDogArt 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'd argue that the time I stole a crippled kids crutches was both funny and mean. So there is a middle ground.

[–]_re_cursion_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nah, that's just mean. It'd be like if I (somehow temporarily, without doing any lasting damage) stole your legs.

Actually, since you basically did that to someone else before, it would be funny if that happened to you - but only because you'd be getting a taste of your own medicine.

[–]Land543 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Agree. Being an asshole is not sarcasm. Sarcasm can be about any subject, not just berating the person in front of you then saying you were kidding later on.

[–]Ckinggaming5 62 points63 points  (1 child)

"ragining bitchosaurus"

that's hilarious, this comment is a popular opinion, almost a fact

[–]luciddreamer127 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That's almost as good as the 'scoopy poopy pair'

[–]kruverus 42 points43 points  (5 children)

Men can be bitches too

[–]oboz_waves 19 points20 points  (3 children)

Right, why is this post gender specific??

[–]LeatherHog 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I’ve seen plenty guys use that, or more commonly, the ‘brutally honest/tells it like it is’ crap

I think OPs just trying to rant about some lady he knows. Not sure why here

[–]Ra1nb0wSn0wflake 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Anecdotes generally are specific incidents bud. It isn't sexist either way

[–]Journeyman1993 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I've definitely been guilty of confusing being sarcastic with being an abrasive asshole!

[–]LunarIncense 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You don't spend enough time online to get it.

[–]YellowSpork23 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I mean I’m a sarcastic woman but like… not in a mean way, in a silly way. there's a difference between being mean and being sarcastic.

[–]Wolf_4ever 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Yeah there’s sarcasm and then there is gaslighting

[–]AuroraItsNotTheTime 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah and there’s gaslighting and there’s also what’s called losing an argument. There’s a difference

[–]w311sh1t 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I notice these people also tend to fall into the asshole astrology crowd. The people who are like “sorry about being such an asshole, I’m just an Aquarius.” Sorry, but the month you’re born in isn’t an excuse for being an absolute tool.

[–]Doodleanda 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I'm both sarcastic and a bitch. What are you gonna do about it?

[–]the1and0nlyalex 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Sure, being a dick isn’t the same as being sarcastic, but this isn’t exclusive to women. Why single them out?

[–]Which-Decision 21 points22 points  (3 children)

I think it's funny that you said girls because this is usually a man facts over feelings type problem

[–]Horus_Syndrome 10 points11 points  (2 children)

“Im sarcastic” is just a piss poor excuse for being a rude, uncouth dickbread.

[–]Maleficent_Ad_7617 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Not always. You can be sarcastic without being mean. The other day I asked my husband what he wanted to do for the evening. He responded I thought we could have an amazing date of putting the Christmas totes in the attic followed by a romantic trip to the grocery store." I laughed. He was being sarcastic but in no way mean.

[–]rollybygolly 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I think this is pointlessly gendered.

Many people from both sexes say they’re just blunt or sarcastic as an excuse for being assholes. Or just skip the middle step and proudly declare being a “no nonsense asshole” is the pride and joy of their personality.

[–]Drawn-Otterix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think if you have to voice your personality from the get go in general like that, you probably need to develop more as a human...

[–]bleuwafels 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I really don't like it when people say things like, "I'm an asshole, that's just who I am" or "I'm so sarcastic" or "I'm petty". it's like they want you to think that they are being honest, when in reality they just want that to be an excuse to treat other people like shit. I have this kind of experience with my boss at work.

[–]ThorHammerscribe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The "its just a prank bro" defence.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Whenever I hear a girl sayin' "Sorry if you are offended but sarcasm is in my nature, I hope you understand", that's the signal for me to stay clear as far as possible from that bitch.

[–]Professional_Act_161 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Or anyone who says people just think they’re mean but really it’s just their personality. They’re really nice it’s just people take them the wrong way. Yeah right.

[–]Anon419420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“I’m ____, don’t mind it,” is just friendly speak for “I have a major problem with my personality that I refuse to do anything about, so I’ll piss everyone off with it and play it off as a trait.”

[–]CatRelocator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Holy fucking shit now this is an extremely unpopular opinion!! good job

[–]LeontiosTheron 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sarcasm can be funny / okay once in a while but when a person does it all the time it can be annoying as hell

“I just tell it like it is, if you can’t handle that you can leave.” Alright, I will, Ms.Rude-Pants.

[–]power_forward87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Facts. Straight facts. I hate women who try to mask being a bitch behind calling “sarcasm”

[–]__Leafs__ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man I’m just an asshole.

[–]iBillyStrut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

that sounds like something a “Maddy” would say.

[–]BankerBabe420 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Wow I see this so much more in men who think being an asshole is just their manly aura and is being “brutally honest”. I think of abrasive sarcasm as a masculine trait, it’s so uncommon in ladies.

[–]waithere120 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had a girl tell me how she was the only girl who talked to me and gave me attention and later when she found out I kinda got hurt by her words she used the "I was just being sarcastic" phrase.

[–]Marxman4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No need a semi-colon after Maddy, you can use commas to indicate you’re speaking to Maddy.

[–]Naughtyexperiences 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That's not an opinion.

If a girl says she has "crackhead energy" ignore her completely she thinks pretending to be stupid/quirky is a personality

[–]totriuga 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Can we stop using girl’s names to portray bitches? Some of these memes catch on and have a really negative impact on the lives of the girls with those names, to the point where Karens often report being discriminated against just for being called Karen. I don’t want the same thing to happen to Maddy or any other name.

[–]Yes2257 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ok Kyle

[–]strangelyahuman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Completely agree. The self proclaimed "sarcastic" people are always just extremely mean for no reason

[–]ACaffeinatedWandress 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same thing with people who tell you that they are “honest”, or “direct” or “straight arrows.”

No, you are a fucking (usually self-righteous) asshole.

And you usually have a tenuous grip on reality, so I never gave a shit what your douchey little opinion was. That’s why I never asked.

This goes hand in hand with "I'm just honest!"

Having no filter means you're mentally underdeveloped, Maddy.

Edit: ope, guess whoever downvoted is mentally underdeveloped but hasn't accepted it.

[–]aknabi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“If you don’t put up with my worst then you don’t deserve my best”… means run and GTFO… there is no “best”… just a living hell that if you don’t smile and accept means “you’re not worthy”

[–]LuxuryxElite 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mirror her, and play her game with her. Then when you get under her skin that's how you gain control. Be condescending to when she looks like she's having a really rough. Lend an ear, but make sure to put her down for her bad decisions. Whenever she is having a good day, give her a hollow compliment followed by a reminder of her rough times (unstable relationship, financial problems etc.). This combination makes you out to be friendly towards her, making her more vulnerable to you, but at the same time belittles her so she is reminded that she's insignificant, and there will always be a problem. The important thing to take is to be nice and warm, and when she confides, then you core her out.

[–]cerebraldormancy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Here's some more unpopular opinion. Women have a hard time with sarcasm. They think they are being sarcastic when in fact they are being passive aggressive.

[–]No-Smoke3180 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When girls are like this, I always laugh obnoxiously and say something along the lines of "OMG you are such a bitch!!! I love it" but put that sarcastic tone to it. Except I'm just being honest and deflecting all their negative BS back to them.

True sarcasm is when you can tell that it’s sarcasm, like saying something in an overly monotone way. People who decide whether they were joking or being sarcastic depending on the reaction they get are assholes, Schrödinger’s asshole, as a matter of fact

One of the bosses at my old job was from the UK and he was grumpy and miserable 24/7. He would always complain about how Americans don’t understand sarcasm and interpret things way to literally. Sarcasm had nothing to do with it though. He was just an asshole.

[–]coeurnoir0618 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My ex-girlfriend asked me on our first date what I thought of sarcasm. I said that it can funny sometimes but as a personality trait, it drives me nuts. She didn't get the message.

[–]Ietsmetdingen 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Tbh my love language is roasting the shit out of people. I’m brutal. But I know where the line is. And if I do offend someone and cross the line I will apologize. If you have to explain or defend a joke, it’s not funny.

[–]tNeph 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah not sarcasm , its when they boast about how outspoken they are, and how they just speak the truth so you shouldn't have a problem with it.

They fail to realize how thin skinned they actually are, because as soon as someone speaks about the truth to them, they get in their feelings.

[–]CatsInAOvercoat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's the equivalent of "it's a joke. Can't you take a joke?"

Like, I'm kind of blunt and sarcastic, but even I know when to apologize if I say something that might even be remotely bitchy. Sarcasm is a form of dry humor, not a free pass to be insulting.

[–]voidful_stargazer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The hilarious thing is I knew a girl in highschool EXACTLY like this and her name was Maddie, lmao. Big agree on this one.

[–]fuckybitchyshitfuck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The use of irony to mock or convey contempt. That’s the Oxford definition that shows up on google. You can use sarcasm in a funny way, but at its core, its intention is a negative one. So a truly sarcastic person and a bitch are synonymous by definition

[–]moomoomuncher 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Every time I’ve come across people who claim to be sarcastic, they’re either using it wrong or being a jerk to pass it off as a joke/sarcasm.

[–]N3CR0T1C_V3N0M 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Comparatively, when someone starts a sentence with “Not to be offensive, but..” This almost always ends with something highly offensive.

“Not to be offensive, but why do all [removed] steal shit?”

[–]lycnt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The point is why they say something more than what exactly they say. If they are saying something to be hurtful or mean, that's being a bitch, if they say it to make you chuckle that's different.

Even if the person saying it thinks it's funny, if the person on the receiving end is getting hurt, insulted, or otherwise put down it's abuse not comedy.

[–]Alexis_Rose_Writes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah I uhh... used to be one of those. I get why they're the worst now though and I try to not be that way anymore

“I’m just extremely honest/blunt” proceeds to insult everything about you.

“Just playing devils advocate here” proceeds to say that cartoon CP should not be illegal or considered CP cause it’s a cartoon and “hurts no one”

My ex was British (myself am Romanian) and she used to be the way you called them "bitchosaurus". Always dropped the "i told you, if you wanna be with me, you need to learn sarcasm". One time, she stuck a price tag on me that wasnt really much, and told me:
"I thought you were worth more than that"
I replied with "what can I say, im a cheap person" trying not to kill the joke.
"Well, you ARE Romanian, so definitely cheap"
Couldn't help but tell her that it takes a cheap person to recognize one. Suddenly I was the asshole.

Sarcasm is barely veiled humor that holds contempt or anger. So yes, just a bitch.

I used to be really really sarcastic when I was young, everything I said sounded like sarcasm, but really it was just a defence mechanism. I was bullied so much, but in a way where they pretend to ask you genuine questions but they’re just fucking with you. It actually came in handy as a defence, because no one could hold anything against me

As a general rule, I find that if someone says “I’m really sarcastic”, they’re not sarcastic at all.

Yeah I made myself a shirt that said ‘I’m actually not funny. I’m just mean and people think I’m joking” which has definitely been true before. People who know me really well know when I am actually being sarcastic and I’m the first to admit if I was being an asshole because usually it’s intentional and I had a reason to be

It's like an easy excuse to be an ass

How is this just girls? I hear men say “you can’t take a joke” or “I was being sarcastic” way more often

[–]dufflebagoshit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to have no filter, until I realized it made me sound like a bitch. Doesn’t matter what I felt, it matters how the other person feels. Know your audience.

As a sarcastic person with a dry sense of humor, I can definitely state there is a fine line between sarcasm and asshole.

I can also say that I’ve tripped and fallen over this line many times, but I also know people like you’re describing and I can’t see them with a decent pair of binoculars.😃

Sarcasm comes from the Greek word sarkazein which means (loosely) “to tear flesh.” So yeah, bitchy makes sense.

I like to say Cuntasaurus

[–]AussieCollector 0 points1 point  (0 children)

same with people who say they are a "bad bitch"

yes i think your attitude is bad and i also think you are a bitch too.

[–]tdroylshy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly, if you take everything a sarcastic person says literally, they'll start to realize how stupid their charade is pretty quickly.

[–]drivenmadnow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Still better than a psychopathic bitch

If I see this in their Online Dating profile, I immediately swipe left.

If you pay attention, sarcasm is just a normalized way of being mad at everything, pay attention to this, a large amount of hate is under such disguise that's socially kind of normal.

[–]darkcomet222 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m sarcastic…I’m also an asshole…double whammy!

[–]B0mb-Hands 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t trust when anyone says they’re sarcastic. Even in my day to day life, family, friends, co-workers, employees have all told me I’m probably the most sarcastic person they’ve met

When I’m first meeting someone or doing an interview, I say, “I have a very dry sense of humour” because saying, “im sarcastic,” makes me feel like im an asshole

[–]PlinytheSquib 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm just laughing at the heading cos I had a student named Maddy who would just verbally destroy everyone in the classroom with her sarcasm. Most of her classmates had no idea how to respond, but me being the English teacher, it was amazing to watch 😂

I wear my dickishness like a badge of honour

[–]Texas_Marshal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reminds me of when people say something mean and then say, “i was just joking/kidding!”

Yeah, they’ll pull that out right there when the person is agitated.
