    I have too many friends who've been shattered by rape...and that's not even getting into my own life.  I just don't see the humor in rape jokes.

    Offensive

    My eldest Foster sister jokes about rape all the time. I'm just like, "hello, were you not told why I live with you?" It's so ignorant.. she has an aversion to foot-on-foot contact and when people touch her feet with theirs she screams out, "stop raping me!" I got onto her a few...

    At all. My sister saw the movie "This is the

    End," and she told me one of the many off-putting elements of the movie was a rape joke that was made in it. It turned me off from ever wanting to see the movie. There is nothing even remotely funny about rape. It's so violent and disgusting. What's next, jokes about child...

    I'm a female studying motor vehicle in college.

    I was raped in the past and I am still dealing with this. The guys in college all make jokes about rape and I really don't find it funny. I die a little more inside after every joke they make on rape. Trying to hide my feelings so they don't click on that I was raped is horrible...

    I couldn't go a day in the military without

    hearing a rape joke, often with my own Rapist in the same room. It was like someone taking a knife to my gut and twisting over and over. Others were laughing while I was trembling inside.

    Of course they are not funny.

    Just think about people who want to be raped. It is their dream. Laughing offends them.

    It offends me because my sibling was raped

    and on top of that, he has special needs. Which adds more to my anger because some people i know make fun of peers who have special needs. As much as i want to punch the hell out of those stupid kids, i have to deal with it to avoid getting in trouble, but being a bystander isn...

    I've been hearing too much from rape jokes

    online, it makes me feel really upset that women were raped and couldn't get over it. Sometimes I believe that they say that they're alright but in truth they're not. I've been thinking a lot, I wish I can do something about it.

    Not Just Rape Jokes!!

    i mean, one thing i can never understand, is like when something really bad happens, and then all of a sudden, people seem to find some way or another to make a joke about it, like when i was at work a couple weeks ago, and just after the earthquake in Japan, i think it was just...

    Why would you ever even think to joke about something that is so serious and traumatizing? I just don't get some people.

    2 ******* in my class were making fun of rape

    by humping chairs and stuff like that. They also mentioned rape jokes. How sick is that?? Rape is serious, it's something sick and no one should have to go through it..

    They are animalistic

    and stifling. You men will never know what it feels like until you've been raped by some gang of mutant gay asswhackers. It is stifling.

    Doing More Harm?

    I have never heard a single rape joke that I found funny and I don't think I ever will. There are so many other topics out there to make jokes from, why pick rape? Is it because you think it's edgy and provocative? Do you think it in some way raises awareness? There are much...

    The 1 in 4 should always be followed up with

    the 1 in 16. Odds are you know both a rape victim and a rapist. Who do you think will laugh at your joke? Who do you think is gonna believe you're on their side? And who do you think is gonna silently decide they cannot trust you? Sure, you can scream that you should be able to...

    I feel like people joke about it

    because it's an uncomfortable subject, and they don't know how else to handle it. That is ABSOLUTELY NO excuse, just a reason that someone might give. I do not think rape jokes are funny AT ALL, and I feel that they CANNOT be justified, but if you ask someone who would defend...

    People think they are funny!  People throw things in others faces.  People can throw whatever at me or at anyone else ... EG: Talking / chatting about rape / molest and whatever or bringing anything up of the sort.  I don't blame anyone who has been through that cause if they...
