@KimRippere I think it's important to distinguish something here: we're talking about two different things. ONE: a rape joke, which is...a joke. As someone below pointed out, Louis C.K. made a joke about the holocaust and no one was outraged. That is baffling to me as the Holocaust was an event of genocide where people were LITERALLY burned to death. TWO: The issue of women being raped is serious; however, the argument people are making cannot be taken seriously. It's like when FOX news supporters say that Obama is a Socialist. I think that's a bit unfair and unethical of this cookie blogger/rape survivor to have started this issue--because Daniel Tosh didn't rape her, and she chose to attend the Laugh Factory in Hollywood (which--spoiler alert: you WILL be offended at a comedy show in Hollywood). That this has gotten this out of hand is really outrageous.

@dpinsof You're making too much sense. ;)
I love @reverendsteveii 's response. That the entire "feminist" community is appalled at this is just infuriating to me. I'm glad everyone jumped on the bandwagon on this. (Rolls eyes) Think for yourself. Have a laugh once in awhile. Double check the story for accuracy. There are a lot of women who are trying to be objective and educated, including using critical thinking skills to examine their own "feminist" movement. I happen to have shifted myself away from the feminist movement months ago for various reasons and many women I've spoken to are feeling the same way. We don't feel the movement represents US or men who are supportive of women. We also don't feel there's a place for non-white women or trans-women. I also took personal offense when women attacked me for standing up for Daniel Tosh. There's a bit of mean-spirited, holier than thou group think/speak going around. I've been in a situation like that--fundamentalism. I do feel the radical feminist movement has some similarities to the fundies and as a result, I don't want to get sucked into group think again. I thought Daniel Tosh was funny long before this, and he's told rape jokes before. I've laughed. His response to this whole thing was pretty funny and light hearted, considering the amount of internet HATE he got from some women: http://tosh.comedycentral.com/video-clips/in-her-skin---uncensored?xrs=synd_facebook
