Maria Parkinson is an actress, comedienne and writer whom I’ve known for many years. Here is an excellent post from her blog “Growling At The Sun”.
…”Making fun of someone may seem funny, but it’s about making yourself appear superior at the expense of someone else. To my sensibilities, making fun of someone based on their looks isn’t funny; it’s the act of a bully. And bullying in the guise of a joke is the act of a coward.” – Maria Parkinson
