In your opinion to what extent are gay jokes okay and when do they become anti gay jokes?

gay jokes are usually okay if you’re gay… or making a joke to expose stereotypes rather than rely on them (I think there was a youtube channel that was like “my gay best friend” or something that would fall into that category, for example, since it tried to expose the ridiculousness of the stereotype expectation)... I would say most gay jokes people make are not okay though?

It’s not really a question of extent, like there’s no sliding scale from “eh” to “noo” to “really bad”, it’s context reliant?
