168. it didnt make it any better. i get the joke. i think it is at the expense of a victim, dismisses
the horror of rape. i think the comedian that resorts to that humor is a lazy comedian. and people that laugh at that is par with someone that will laugh at a "retard" joke.

i know there are people that talk about dark humor. dark humor to me, is being ugly for a laugh. that is not in me. sorry.

i laugh and laugh at comedians all the time. i keep laugh u.s.a on my radio. we watch comedy channel often.

but no, i dont think it is meant as a social commentary. i think it is a lazy joke at the expense of the person they are going after. and i dont see it as going after the rapist.

what are you going to do. you cant take that

is exactly confirming a constant notion in mens head, though yes.... the majority would never rape.

" 25% of the men surveyed admitted some degree of sexually aggressive behavior

In a survey of high school students, 56% of the girls and 76% of the boys believed forced sex was acceptable under some circumstances. (ref 5)

51% of the boys and 41% of the girls said forced sex was acceptable if the boy, "spent a lot of money" on the girl;

65% of the boys and 47% of the girls said it was acceptable for a boy to rape a girl if they had been dating for more than six months.

43% of college-aged men admitted to using coercive behavior to have sex, including ignoring a woman's protest, using physical aggression, and forcing intercourse. "

Normative standards about the acceptability of the sexual assault of women remain
confused. In a 1993 national study of 1,700 sixth to ninth graders, a majority of the boys
considered rape acceptable under certain conditions and many of the girls agreed (Wallis
1995). According to several sources, 51 ‐ 60 percent of college men report that they would
rape a woman if they were certain that they could get away with it. One out of twelve
college men surveyed had committed acts the met the legal definition of rape; 84 percent
of these men said what they did was definitely not rape

51%-60% males would rape if they could get away with it.

i think where we are off on this discussion is we say few males (boy/men) feel rape is ok, or not a big deal, or only the scary ugly guy. i dont think that is a reality adn the study does not bare it out. i think young, males are raised in a manner, and girls too for that matter, that it is the way it is suppose to work, one reason or another.

we cant pretend that only the "bad" men rape. i dont think it is a reality. i think we need to be honest what we see in society.
