I'm probably on the same wavelength as Mojo, but with some added **** thrown in.

I see everything as fair game within the realms of making a joke, be it the holocaust, dead babies, racism or rape. That being said, if I am going to joke about something to such a degree I'll do it among people who I already know are comfortable (comfortable as in they know I'm joking, not comfortable with the actual topic) with it by and large and obviously, in whatever situation, actually try and make it funny. Same goes as if I'm going to laugh about it. Jim Davidson racism-not funny. Gervais/Extras implied racism-funny. As were his jokes about the Cambodian genocide, although I appreciate he's non too popular.

Some of these topics have affected me, or close friends or family very directly, and I'm sure many others are the same. Maybe it's therapeutic? I've never really thought about it, I just do it. That being said, I don't think I lack empathy at all. True, I'll rarely go firebrand on someone to convince them something is right or wrong on someone's behalf, but I know how certain issues make me feel and I'm comfortable with my own code of morality.

So basically, rape jokes are fine then.

I've yet to hear a rape joke that made me laugh, but I'm sure they have the capacity to exist.

As for as rape goes, the only thing that really drives me up the wall is how it has become synonymous with the word "defeat" in online gaming. Hearing a bunch of 15 year old guttersh*ts saying they raped each other just disgusts me.

you care less about sexual assault than you do little boy gamers?

oh, my bad I thought it was enough that it affects so many people and is used as a tool of oppression and war. I would think "forcefully dominating someone's intimate parts" was bad enough!

I admit I didn't word that properly, I meant it in usage of the word outside of the actual act of rape.

So what do you define rape as?

The standard Websters dictionary definition works for me, although I think there is some psychological elements that could be added to the definition as well.

Tbh I can't think of any actual structured jokes either. It's more the shock value and delivery that does it for me but that applies to most things.

I hope you don't mean the only thing!

I do know what you mean when it comes to young kids and using it in conversation so casually, as if there isn't such a disgusting and violent connotation to it. Most of them could not even imagine.
