Why do some people find murder jokes funny but rape jokes offensive?
I might get blasted for this or silently frowned down upon, but whatever.
Not trying to downplay the suffering of a rape victim. But I think I’d rather be raped than murdered.
A specific example: Cindy tackles and gropes Ryan. They’re together, and both are cool with random groping.
Ryan: You’re killing me!
(Or really any other joke/threat involving killing/murder. There are shittons.)
Why is A worse than B? If anyone can explain it, I’d be grateful, because I don’t understand the disconnect.
But I see people going around, offended about something new every day. Doesn’t that get uncomfortable? I mean some of us seem to think that we’re the world’s social justice police force.
To an extent, being offended is healthy. We’re all offended sometimes, just like we’re all sad sometimes, all mad sometimes, and so forth. And sometimes great things come from someone being offended by an injustice and rallying behind their beliefs.
But there is always something to be offended about if you look for it, just like there’s always something to be mad or sad about. It’s a matter of balance, and how much you wanna stress yourself and others out about every little thing that might not be said exactly how you would say it. And it’s also a matter of how many people will put up with you when you’ve become an easily offended, pedantic, and pontificating douchecanoe.
At a certain point, enough is enough.
