Girlfriend made a rape joke about me... Watch

    We were talking about going out for a drink and I said if you drink, I won't drink as someone has to keep an eye on you and she made a joke about me saying I might rape her.

    I was seriously offended and quite hurt that someone could say that. I really despise crime, especially sexual crimes so I was hurt that she could say that I was capable of something.

    Should I just take it on the head and "man up" or do I have a reason to be upset?

    In my opinion you should man up. It seems perfectly harmless and jokey.

    It was clearly a joke, why would she tell people you'd rape her?

    Break up, I'd recommend focusing on your studies for the time being.

    I think it's completely understandable that you were upset by your girlfriend suggesting that you would do something as awful as rape her, although she most likely didn't mean it as anything other than a joke. If you're offended it would probably be a good idea to talk to her about it- communication is really important in relationships

    I would dump her. Sounds like she's got issues. Next time she's in a relationship she'll learn not to be such a ****.

    So how does one respond then to a joke that you would rape your girlfriend? "Sure I'll rape you!"?

    You could say "If I drink too much maybe YOU'LL rape ME." Anyway. It's not a funny joke. Just dump the silly girl. Ain't nobody got time for dat!

    Was your comment about keeping an eye on her in earnest or in jest?

    It was a joke. My boyfriend and I joke about stuff like that. It's very obviously a joke. She doesn't think you're a rapist or she wouldn't be with you.

    When did rape become a joke? If I posted a rape joke on this website, I'll be swamped by feminists and white knights.

    You joke about raping your boyfriend or your boyfriend rapes you?

    I joke with my girlfriend, just never something like rape.
