If someone makes a joke out of something sensitive to you, how do you react?
What Girls Said 11
If it's an insecurity, I go really quiet and awkwardly try to let them know for future reference that I don't find it funny. Internally, I'm probably on the verge of a meltdown because all the negative feelings surrounding the insecurity have been stirred up and worsened. :/
If it's something I have strong feelings about, I'll usually just ignore it, but my feelings toward them may have taken a negative dip.2
Depends who it is and what the topic is, I guess.
But in the most generic situation, though, I see myself just saying like, "Awww, dude.." and they'd hopefully be caught off guard with how bothered I seem and somewhat confusedly ask, "... what?" and I'd explain real quick, "That's kind of a touchy subject for me, bro," and they'd be like "oh fuck, my bad."
I don't make a big deal out of anything nor do the friends I choose to make and keep. So it's all chill. Because I know that there are some people who actually instinctively use humor to cover insecurities or something that bothers them, too (like some people laugh when they're nervous). No harm done. I try to understand all perspectives, you know?1
I would stop talking to them immediately if we're in a group. If we're face to face, I'd call him/her out, straight up, and tell him/her that they're being a jerk.1
I think maybe in the generation before me and the one before that it must have been socially acceptable to tease people. I think it's becoming less acceptable. Sometimes I just look at the people like they are stupid. Then I walk away. It must be an art very few have mastered.1
I have to find something sensitive to me first. I'm sure I'd react badly and viciously...1
Oh boy, they better wish they run away quickly. I don't react quite well to this tbh.1
I would get upset of course. I hate when people make jokes about sensitive topics.1
I get quiet and kind of give them the "vibe" that it wasn't funny.1
I'd probably lash out at them.1
i would tell that person to grow up or i'll start to argue0

Mace'em in the face and laugh at their vulnerability.1
I do the exact same thing, except worse. I make sure they suffer for what they have done.1
