Considering that it seems like a lot of people are getting offended more and more by even jokes I wonder how many of his quotes would fly if this show was still on TV to this day without having someone make a big stink about it

Thank you

I wonder what the viewer reaction to Barney would be like now especially since people seem to be offended by anything

I'm surprised any sitcom can survive with the way people are anymore but yeah I could see some of Barney's plays not flying now.

I definitely have to agree. It's sad how even comedy shows have to hold back because people get offended that easily

Oh, don't get me started. Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock have both said they won't play universities anymore because of how hypersensitive and easily triggered the little college snowflakes are. I hate political correctness to the marrow of my bones.

That said, I don't think that all of Barney's plays would be offensive. I think most viewers understand that it's tongue in cheek. And if not, they can go to UC Berkley and complain there.

I agree with the whole PC part and I hate that all those school teach liberalism by default instead of sharing views from both sides but even jokes like Barneys might be taken as of offensive even if they're supposed to be obviously hilarious

Well, I've never seen anyone on this board take offense to any of Barney's plays, and we've had quite a number of female posters. I haven't seen anything on YouTube either, and that's usually where PC land mines go off.

Yeah people around here always seem to have their sense of humor and reality that this is just a sitcom. Places like YouTube and Tumblr not so much

Well, I don't think Barney's plays ever offended anyone on YouTube for some reason. And they get offended by pretty much anything. I think that Neil being gay allows him some leeway and he's able to get away with it. The irony of a gay man playing this chauvinistic ladies man is not lost on people.

Yeah that is kinda ironic I didn't even think about him being gay which makes the jokes more accessible but it certainly sets a little of a double standard.
