Who Says Rape Jokes Aren’t Funny?

Posted by katlazo Posted in blog, homepage, Uncategorized

Pardon my delayed response on the subject. But I can’t resist stating my opinion on this subject.

I can’t believe its taken this long for Daniel Tosh’s so called comedy to be called out for the misogynist/racist and just ignorant bull crap that it really is. I’ve stayed far-far away from  his show, Tosh.0 because I was repulsed by the hateful messages he put out. It just never tickled my fancy, what can I say.

As you all may have already heard, Daniel Tosh was performing stand up at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood when he was heckled by a female during a rape joke. “Actually, rape jokes are never funny!” heckled the heckler (lol).

Tosh’s rebuttal was “Wouldn’t it be funny if that girl got raped by like, 5 guys right now? Like right now? What if a bunch of guys just raped her…” Ouchh……..no bueno Tosh, no bueno.

Its obvious that his rebuttal was not funny at all but instead a clear example of a abusive attack. Yet, I guess its not all that obvious or else why would 2.65 million viewers have tuned in for the Tosh.0 episode that aired July 28?
Or why would his show be No. 3 among broadcast and cable among men 18-34? Not so obvious as I may have thought.

So maybe people need to be educated about humor. Elisa Kreisinger creator of Pop Culture Pirate recently made this video remix that properly demonstrates the difference between rape jokes that aren’t really jokes and others jokes that actually serve a valuable purpose. She states it best in her video, “Thats why humor works best when it exposes injustice not perpetuates it.”

So you see heckler lady, rape jokes can actually sometimes be funny if done the right way. Which I’m sure Tosh did not.
Don’t eva say I neva told ya ;)

    I think you, sir, or SON, the AmazingAtheist, are wrong about Feminism. It’s what I call short-circuit thinking. You haven’t thought things through. You engage your mouth before your brain is properly in gear, but I hope you live long because you should then grow older and wiser.
