People who solely get mad at rape jokes are huge hypocrites.

Just like the original picture (I didn’t get permission to post the person’s URL), if you don’t like rape jokes, but support jokes about murder or other serious crimes, you are a huge hypocrite. The whole “you don’t know who might be listening” excuse can be made about all of these. And you are more likely to be murdered than rape. You are more likely to be raped in prison (male or female) than you are to get raped outside of prison. You are more likely to be the victim of theft than a rape victim. You are more likely to be, or know, the victim of child abuse. And I will go ahead and say that getting murdered is worse than rape. You can get over a rape. You can even grow to be successful. Look at Oprah. But if you’re murdered, that’s it. You don’t bounce back from that.
And I find that it is feminists who get mad at rape jokes the most, yet #killallmen has millions of reblogs and tweets. I don’t see a big shut down of these feminists. Jokes about dark humor are plentiful in our society, but apparently, we only get really mad at something when a women is perceived as the victim. on The Talk (a show by women, for women), they made fun of a guy who was the victim of genital mutilation. However, they danced around the word “rape”. The reason his wife did it? He asked for a divorce. Yet the hosts were making excuses for her and laughing about how they might do the same thing. There is a huge double standard when a society that assumes that women are the only victims of rape (U.S. FBI just recently changed the definition to include men, and feminists successfully made the word gendered again in other countries like India), and that jokes about crimes against women are totally taboo, yet we encourage the same actions on Men and of other serious crimes. It’s a horrible double standard.
You can’t stop eating beef, claiming that you don’t want to hurt animals, then turn around and stuff your face with chicken.
