Again the internet is plagued with feminists, comedians and everyone in between arguing unabashedly about whether the topic of rape has a place in comedy. Comedy is out there for people to deal with what is getting talked about, to face it, not marginalize it (although it certainly can and many cases has). That line of marginalization is what is being argued about and a fine line it is. Whatever your opinion is on the subject, do you think that without comedians making these jokes anyone would be reading any feminist rants about rape? Ten to twenty years ago feminist bloggers such as Lindy West wouldn’t get the time of day outside of a few niche outlets with audiences that already agreed with the majority of her perspective. By making jokes about rape, you bring it into a position where you can talk about it which is what people are doing and like many other controversial topics in the past in comedy, people will get offended as they should because we need debates on the subject. It is a huge problem in the World that people need to care about, talk about, learn about and yes, even in some cases laugh about. Here are some jokes made by well established comedians, male and female, that are actually funny.
