40. There is not enough moral outrage here
...and the moderators agree. There is not one funny thing about rape or rape jokes. Not one. I wish there was more moral outrage. I would never ever trust someone who doesn't take this seriously and on the heels of the outrage at Ann's "joke" such hypocrisy. It makes me sick. There are rape survivors on DU. Ask them how they feel about rape jokes.
