No one cares about you edgy people that find 'rape' funny because you have such dark humorz. Keep it to yourselves.


Now this is just not needed, and inaccurate. No one is saying they find rape funny. Not even those who are defending the humour. This is about rape jokes and whether they're appropriate. You don't honestly believe there are people in these forums who get their kicks out of laughing at the actual crime of rape, do you?

Demeaning people by calling them edgy and adding you wacky "z" instead of an "s" at the end of humour to imply immaturity doesn't help the discussion.


Just keep it to yourselves. You're not going to greet people with a rape joke or tell one over with a few friends with other friends of friends there are you as if your telling a normal, funny joke. No, the moment before even opening your mouth to say a rape joke a normal person will hesitate as it's inappropriate. Maybe people find it funny as they sit alone in their dimly lit rooms, in which case like I said, who cares, keep it to yourselves.


I agree, and I want to say that that's a problem. I don't like how taboo the subject is, but since it is I guess the only thing you can do with jokes like those, if they're part of your sense of humour, is laugh at them in the privacy of your own room. So, fair enough.

They are Celebrities; some people worship the ground they walk on. Pretty much every Celebrity has said/done/expressed something that someone had found offensive/upsetting etc etc and they are forgiven (most of the time) by their fans because they are Celebrities.

I don't even keep up with real celebrities, let alone internet celebrities.

Being in the spotlight all the time must be tough. They have to know what they can and cannot say to the public. It's usually safer to not say anything when questioning if you should say something.

There does seem to be some kind of "obsession" with rape these days. It's a very popular thing with social justice warriors and 3rd wave rad-fems as well. Often times, it's such an extreme thing where anything I say about rape is automatically invalidated, not just because I'm a heterosexual Caucasian male, but I was never sexually-molested or raped in my lifetime.....of course, if a man got raped, his issues and feelings wouldn't count, because "Only men can rape". Plus, there's no way to advise countermeasures without apparently blaming rape-victims, as though "Oh, well, since you didn't defend yourself, you deserved it," which is a load of bullsh!t.

.....

....did I miss the point of this thread?

I think that sometimes it's a good thing to be able to find some humor out of it, as it makes it just slightly more bearable. We like to find comedy in dark, unsavory, things because it makes dealing with them easier. This isn't a bad thing, it's a natural defense mechanism we need to help protect ourselves.

But there is still a time and a place.

Because the tumblrtards are obsessed with rape and won't shut the fuck up.....

I don't care what side you're on anymore, If you're discussing rape currently, it's because of tumblr.and the mainstream media being afraid to tell them to shut the fuck up.

The people you listed are desperate for attention, post contraversial shit for shock value, and rape is the subject of choice. It's popular and it's clickbait.

I don't understand the humor around rape, but to each their own.

if one were to choose one post to pay attention to, this one.

people need to consider what a joke is, humor has traditionally been used as a tool to highlight issues that were either taboo or outright forbidden to talk about, dont see why this subject should be any different, that there are plenty of ways to make an outright distasteful joke about it doesnt mean it is universally always the case.

I would like to mention one thing.

We keep saying that these were simply jokes, but they weren't. Once The Amazing Atheist found out that the girl he was making jokes about was raped before, he said the rapist deserved a medal.

So who was wrong here? The Amazing Atheist? or the girl who was raped, and didn't have a sense of humor about it?

I would need to watch the videos since the beginning, context here is important. The Amazing Atheist hates radical feminists, and the so called "rape culture" (where women see everything as rape, like a guy sitting next to her and looking at her then they think "he wanted to rape me!" or something like that, all this tumblr absurdity) and is not afraid to make fun of delicate topics such as ISIS and religion.

I watch his videos from time to time because I think he is funny so if you don't mind sharing the links to all those videos you're talking about? don't tell me to google it...better go straight to the point than wasting time looking for the right video.

Here you go--> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjXt3L_CByo

Of course that's just someone else's video's, but his reddit rape rant can be found if you google it! Remember everyone, anytime someones asked for anything, the first thing I've always heard is 'google it'. Now I'm throwing it back out there. All the information you need, or may want is at Google. You just have to take the blinders off, and find it yourself.

Of course this could all be a conspiracy, but when so many people start talking about it, and the fact that the Amazing Atheists reddit rant has his posts mysteriously vanish, so you never know...

I doubt it though.
