you just wanted to hold hands but he wanted to fuck
he's twice your size and weight so you're shit out of luck

[chorus:]
you got date raped, date raped [x4]

you whined to the judge, your eyes were full of tears
but you wouldn't have been raped if you didn't have 50 beers

[chorus]

next time you go out bring a chaperone or friend
or you'll probably end up getting date raped again
you got date raped
I said, YEAH BABY YEAH, I am the evil Midnight Bomber what bombs things at midnight!

Overwhelmingly, rape victims know their aggressor. This is why so many people desperately want rape not to be a big deal, because they can only get sex through varying amounts of coercion or emotional manipulation.

I've never met anyone who seriously believed rape isn't a big deal.

Well no, but that's because many's definition of rape is limited to worst case scenarios, like a violent encounter where the woman is left bloodied and battered.

When you point out that, say, having sex with a drunk chick is also rape, they get into that whole "it's no big deal" thing.

Having sex with a drunk chick isn't rape. Having sex with a drunk chick who doesn't want to have sex is rape.

The law disagrees with you pix. Being drunk prevents consent. Similarly, if I got you drunk and made you sign a contract, you could get it voided in court for that reason

I'm not sure I understand what's going on here. I've always liked Carlin, although he was at his best years ago, and I don't remember him ever having a routine about rape being funny... And rape can be funny the same way any horrific thing can be made funny, with hard work and a deft touch. I mean, death's pretty terrible but I laugh at the Darwin Awards, or at least am amused by them. But people do tend to be sensitized towards traumas that have affected them in some way, either directly or indirectly.

But I've never met someone who truly thought rape was funny. I mean there are asshole 4channers who might seem to but they don't count towards examples of real human behavior. So where is this coming from?

Didn't this essentially happen with the frat guys in Borat and cause a controversy?

While I hardly think rape is funny, I do take issue with all the girls/women who are making a joke out of it by charging every dude with it when they get drunk and go home with someone they didn't like. God knows I've done some stupid things when I was drunk, and gone home with some people I really regret; simultaneously, SOME part of my brain was still functioning to think, "I am going to go home with this person and sleep with them." I was aware of my behavior - my judgement key was broken. I shouldn't punish some guy because I got drunk and now have to deal with him calling all the time or whatever.



(yes, I realize that some women do get genuinely raped when drunk. I'm saying one of the reasons these cases are so fuzzy and bizarre is because little girls crying wolf sort of spoil it for the real victims.)

Wait, was this spurred by something you saw? Like someone making a rape joke to a rape victim?

This was some random guy she's never met, it wasn't like she was at a bar/party and you can say "omg she was totally looking to get laid". Her insurance ran out months ago and has been moving from one rehab center to the next getting kicked out from each one.


That.

I meant more along the lines of the thread title having some sort of significance. Or was he just listening to George Carlin?

Can policy issued by the Japanese finance minister be nullified?

If only prostitution were legal; then you could add "honest business transactions" to the list, and fewer people would feel driven to be duplicitously manipulative.

Incidentally, you're being way too general. Technically, courtship of a significant other involves emotional manipulation.
