Why should only good comedians joke about rape? Because you want to hear something funny not a lame ass joke.

What's wrong with you? Do you like to listen to bad jokes?

I don't have to rely on insensitive jokes to be funny, I am afforded the privilege of doing so because I am a living being and the pain and suffering of one being does not in anyway take precedent over another's. You gotta deal with the **** to be the ****.

So if it's funny you're fine and if it's shit you're a cunt?

EDIT - Apologies if this sounded mean or aggressive, that's not my intention, sorry.

Yes, that's how someone people feel. Not that you're a cunt if it's shit but more like why even bother telling a joke if you can't make it funny? Especially a comedian that people pay to see.


Do you pay to see unfunny comedians?

Well if some people think it's fine if it's funny and if it isn't they're offended then that's bollocks.

I've never paid to see any comedian. I get you were trying to make a joke but that reasoning is bollocks.

Define 'funny'?

No, that part about if it isn't funny and being offended doesn't factor into the same group of people that find it funny from good comedians.

The ones that are offended are normally offended regardless of the comedian. It doesn't matter.

The crux of it is that the people that are offended just don't like rape jokes because it hits a nerve. They don't find them funny, therefore it must be wrong , why is that the comedian's fault? It's just emotionally driven. It's bollocks.
Humor that it's intentionally meant to shock is just horribly unfunny to me. Like dead baby jokes. I see them as being on par with lawyer jokes and knock knock jokes. Yeah, I get it, you're edgy. Now tell me an actually funny joke. There's no need or effort to it. Say something intentionally vulgar for shock value, and bam! You have joke LOL! If it's satirical or built into a larger, well made/structured joke, that's another matter. I was specifically talking about jokes where the humor is strictly derived from merely being "offensive".

Is that not a race 'joke'?

Why is being white relevant? I mock white people too, but I mock anyone. I'm consistent. Like I said, either everything is OK, or nothing is.



...What? Where in my post did I say anything about everything "not" being okay? In fact, that's exactly what I said. I could care less who you mock. I said in my post that everything goes. Twice.

People itt have said if it's done well they don't think rape jokes are wrong.

If someone laughs at one joke at someone else's expense and gets offended at another because it mocks them that's bollocks.

exactly! Like I said, if I'm joking about MY rape, or rape culture in general, then that's not being an *******.
