    Satire doesn't excuse it, if it is satire which I doubt it is, this does not excuse the fact it crossed the line.

    Making jokes about rape doesn't mean you condone rape but you still shouldn't make them.

    Also can you give me the source on this being satire? Seeing responses to the video on other forums, I can't see anyone saying this is satire. Progressive in the Muslim community also seems to be an oxymoron.
    :rolleyes:
    and why do you doubt it's satire? You just want it to be true so you can say hateful things for reps.

    With that logic, those guys just want it to be satire so they can say hateful things for views and ad-money.

    I doubt it to be satire because there was no disclaimer, no cut away video where they spoke seriously and plugged a pro-LGBT charity or helpline. No use making satire of such a topic without there being more to it than making a joke.

    What am saying that is hateful?
