dude, in all seriousness. if you need to cling to that kind of humor, and if you think anyone who rejects it has lost his or her sense of humor, then you need to grow up.

His special, "Completely Serious" was really good. His show and second special just hit and miss. The hits are pretty solid though.

P.S. I love gay jokes.

Question

What do you degenerates think now?


Daniel Tosh Chuckles Through Own Violent Rape


http://www.theonion.com/articles/dan...nt-rape,28769/

Quote:
HOLLYWOOD, CA—Embroiled in controversy following comments he made during a recent performance at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, comedian Daniel Tosh chuckled this afternoon while being violently raped by a group of men in a Hollywood alley. "You have to admit, this is pretty hilarious," said the teary-eyed 37-year-old, his bloodied face slamming against a brick wall as he was brutally and repeatedly penetrated against his will for the 53rd straight minute. "Sure, I'll be forever tormented by images of my attackers tearing off my pants and holding a knife against my throat as they viciously tear into my rectum, but c'mon, you gotta have a sense of humor about this sort of thing." As of press time, sources said a disheveled Tosh checked into a nearby treatment center, where he quietly smirked after being diagnosed with HIV.
He would.

I mean... that in itself is a joke about rape.

If he joked about someone getting mugged, would everyone get all "YOU CAN'T JOKE ABOUT GETTING MUGGED, DON'T YOU KNOW THAT PEOPLE GET MUGGED ALL OF THE TIME, HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO GET MUGGED, YOU WOULDN'T FIND IT FUNNY THEN, IT'S A SERIOUS ISSUE"

No, because rape is a crime committed overwhelmingly by men on overwhelmingly female victims. It's not this neutral issue that affects everyone equally

Also just a warning my sister was murdered not long ago so if everyone could keep murder jokes to a minimum that'd be swell.

I know. I've been receiving counselling, and it's been great. I still get traumatised when people talk about rape though and I usually end up insisting that people censor themselves.

I'm gay and I think he's alright. I've only seen Tosh.0 which is amusing in kind of a dumb way, but I haven't seen any of his stand-up. Gay jokes in general don't bother me much at all though, unless I can tell the comedian is being somewhat serious but in a "funny" way. I dated a guy for a bit that loved him, if you're interested in more homo perspectives.

Being mugged isn't even in the same ballpark as being raped, though. Rape/sexual abuse in general is not only more common than mugging, but it's also significantly more traumatizing and it's more likely for the victims to have PTSD-like symptoms after the fact. It's a pretty worthless comparison.

I read something today at work that put a different perspective on it.

He didn't make a rape joke to the lady. He strongly suggested it would be funny if "she got raped by five guys right now. Right now."

That last emphasis, they were saying, almost makes it seem like he was encouraging it. It was a disturbing way to phrase it; it was almost like it was imperative. I know we live in the internet age where "everything is fair game", yada yada, I get it. I've been on the internet for like 16 years, blah blah.

But, considering his popularity amongst groups of males aged 16 to, I dunno, 30... to make light of victimization that is very real and to "de-stigmatize" rape over the course of his comedic career is, I don't know, pretty irresponsible. We've seen what casual racism and sexism has done over time, it makes it okay to be "ironically" racist to the point where people have no problem being overtly racist as long as they add an LOL at the end.

I've read an absurd amount about this since it happened, as everyone has instant opinions on the internet. It seems everyone who is saying "O WELL THAT'S TOSH, QUIT GETTING BUTTHURT" are, no surprise, males aged 16 to 30.

If he joked about someone getting [insert violating crime here], would everyone get all "YOU CAN'T JOKE ABOUT GETTING [insert violating crime here], DON'T YOU KNOW THAT PEOPLE GET [insert violating crime here] ALL OF THE TIME, HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO GET [insert violating crime here], YOU WOULDN'T FIND IT FUNNY THEN, IT'S A SERIOUS ISSUE"

Well that's why you should use discretion when telling jokes.
