Rape Jokes

Even though this is somewhat old news now, I think it’s an important issue that has been far from resolved. Rape jokes are something we’ve all heard many times. Over the summer, comedian Daniel Tosh made a rape joke. After one of the audience members said that rape jokes aren’t funny, Tosh replied by stating that it would be hilarious if the woman got gang-raped that very second. There was quite a bit of controversy regarding Tosh’s response; in my opinion, the fact that anyone was defending Tosh is incredibly upsetting.
