1. there is no DU in the sense that you mean....

DU doesn't discuss anything. Instead, there are a bunch of DUers. We're the ones who discuss whatever is important enough to merit discussion. For some DUers, rape is evidently a topic of great importance. For others, not so much. So effectively, rape will always be talked about just the right amount on DU-- just the right amount being the depth of discussion that individual DUers want.

If you or I don't want to discuss rape, the solution of course is to not participate in discussions about rape-- NOT to discourage others from talking about it if that's the topic they want to discuss.

3. There is DU in the sense that we are a community

I am just curious about the discussion - it seems to have popped up a lot, and a lot of the posts seem somewhat accusatory without actually accusing anybody of anything.

5. Do you have any idea how fucking offensive a "joke" poll about rape is?

Honestly, I truly hope that no sexual predator ever grabs you, bends you over a park bench, cranks your elbow up between your shoulder blades, and ass-fucks you until become permanently incontinent. Really, I would never wish that on anyone. But, were it to happen to you, you might re-think the whole funny rape poll thing.

6. I'm not trying to be funny per se

I don't think Rape is a funny subject. But it is a subject which is being talked about a lot right now; and in a somewhat accusatory manner. I perhaps haven't found the right way to articulate what I am thinking.
