An appropriate phrase...
For those of you who can't read the caption, it states:
turns "no no no" into "mm mm mm"
The picture comes from the site "Very Demotivational" and, frankly, bothers me more than a little. Maybe it's because I'm a crazy ivory tower academic or something, but I really don't think that rape is funny. For that matter, I also don't really find sexual violence in general or violence against women in particular to be at all funny. But what's really frightening is that, judging by the ratings this picture has received, I'm in the minority in that regard:
Or, if you don't want to click on the image, the vote tally as of this screen cap stood at 1181 who approved and 513 who disapproved. So, in other words, only 30% of the people visiting the site who bothered to vote see a problem here.
Stay classy, internet. Stay classy.
I should note that I am not encouraging anyone to try and get this picture taken down. That would be a tad inconsistent with my generally extreme free speech position. I would, however, argue that this is a good opportunity to point out why joking about raping women is- to put it mildly- in poor taste. And if you disagree, try imagining that it was your daughter, sister, or mother in the above pic. How bloody funny is it now?
