@Ryan Broderick You are twisting the argument. Nobody is arguing that this girl should of found the joke funny. In fact, a lot of the responses form fellow comedians acknowledged that the joke was in poor taste. But that’s not the point. The point is stand up comedy in comedy clubs is great because it is completely uncensored. If you don’t like that than simply don’t go.
If you are easily offended than simply don’t go. Again, nobody is supporting/condoning rape. We are all simply saying that we like our uncensored comedy and would like it to remain that way.

I’m not arguing the validity of a rape joke either. My thoughts on Daniel Tosh’s joke are pretty clear:
If it was a funny rape joke we wouldn’t be talking about it. Plain and simple.
And the point of my GIF is that, in a large amount of cases (not all of them) the defenders of his joke are male, which, to me, makes no sense. When Michael Richards screamed the N-word did anyone ask a group of white people how they felt about it?
No, because it’s not pertinent really is it?
In this case, if you’re a man, and on top of that a man who’s never been the victim of sexual abuse, or someone who’s never faced the threat of sexual abuse, then perhaps your opinions on this don’t really matter.
And I’m not attacking you IcemanD, or anyone else in particular, but before anyone here puts on their Guy Fawkes mask and posts about censorship and the defense edgy comedy just like take a deep breath and maybe flip the circumstances.
