You don't know if someone has been raped or affected by rape, so why would you make the joke?

Some female comedians joke about being female, some black comedians joke about being black, these are jokes at someone's expense but not to the point of triggering them.
Exactly and being that statistically 1 in 6 women will be raped/sexually assaulted in their lives, it really puts it in perspective.
