    Spinoff of Funny Question

    Advertisements
    The joke reads:

    If you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shoplifting?

    My question is, can a joke about rape make it funny?

    Discuss

    ETA: I don't think anyone's evil for thinking it funny and hopefully no one takes the joke or poll personally, just curious about the percentage is all

    No. I don't think that it is funny or can make it funny.
    An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment.

    I thought the joke was funny and I have been raped. So, I don't think I am out of line by saying that. It wouldn't have been funny during the time I was going through some really rough emotions, but the joke is humorous to me now. If that makes me evil, I'm okay with that I guess.

    i don't think it was meant to be taken personal by anyone, it is more making fun of prostitutes from the way i see it

    Well, I've never been raped and I thought the joke was funny. I tend to laugh at inappropriate moments as well.
