The inhumanity of cards against humanity

Think 17 (48):39-50 (2018)

Samuel Director
University of Colorado, Boulder
In general, it is morally wrong to joke about the suffering of a category of people while in front of a person who fits into this category. I argue that, when people play the game Cards Against Humanity, it is likely that they do this very action. Thus, I conclude that it is morally wrong to play Cards Against Humanity.
