I see it quite often on the internet, when people make a joke about rape and sexual abuse but don't intend to offend, but just want to be funny.
I recently read this on The Guardian site: http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology...rape-jokepages
Which talks about exactly that, and Facebook's stance on removing the pages and comments.
Another example is in comedy and professional comedians - this is hard to regulate and sometimes there seems to be reactions from crowds which are oh I probably shouldn't be laughing at this but I can't help it. When I think of that I think Jimmy Carr/Frankie Boyle.
I'm not really sure if I have a solid question here, but wanted to get your thoughts on whether you think this all trivializes rape and is what is affecting societies perceptions of it. I read another article on the Interdependent about rape victims not believing they would be taken seriously... is this problem getting better or worse?
