Um... okay I don't get this joke from the "you're going to hell" subreddit.

I was browsing Reddit and found the "You're going to hell" subreddit... hate to admit it, but I have laughed at at least a few of these posts. Some absolutely not (anything dealing with domestic abuse, misogyny, racism, Sandy Hook), but there are a few comedic gold nuggets to be found, for sure!

Anyways, I was looking at this one:

And I have no idea why it is in this section. What is so... bad about it? What's the joke?

Here's the link to the image:

Warning, though: There is some extremely offensive content in the sidebar as well as the rest of this subreddit.

If I'm not allowed to post this here, please delete this thread immediately.

So does anyone know what is so offensive with this?

Chromosomes are, I believe, genders. Everyone has either an X or Y chromosome, which makes them a male or female.

Potatoes have both male and female parts in them, like all plants, so it's referring to that

It's offensive, because well look at the link you posted. They explain it, they even post pics explaining it.

Hoggy was trying to explain how potatoes have more chromosomes, but not the joke lol. What a potato.

Potato is internet slang for people with Down's syndrome, prob started on 4chan. The joke is that it's unintentionally putting people with down's and humans in separate categories.

Anyway there's your answer.

Probably shouldn't have explained.

... Probably should lock this before it gets out of hand.

the fun ends here
