Instead of me having to explain why I don’t like rape jokes, how about you explain why you find them funny.
for the same reason I find dead baby jokes funny, for the shock humor
No. Tell a dead baby joke to a mother whose child recently died. Go on, do it. I wonder if you’d laugh then.
Rape jokes are not funny. Rape jokes are not funny. Rape jokes are not funny.
A rape joke tells the rapists that they’re okay, and tells the victims/survivors that they should be okay with people laughing at their pain. You never know who might be in your company, and the possibility of reminding someone of a horrific, traumatizing experience is not worth it. Ever.
