    i like dark humour but sometimes it goes too far
    tbh though
    if you do a rape vs murder thing
    murder - victim dies end of
    rape - victim lives with that the rest of their life

    so in a sense rape is worse

    but thats just mah opinion

    Worse than murder jokes but not as bad as 9/11 jokes.
    Yeah those ones seem to crash and burn

    Also we can have TV shows about sympathetic serial murderers, but I don't recall there ever being a sympathetic serial rapist protagonist..

    i think there's a time and place for both set of jokes
    also weird how using 'raped' as a way of saying 'you got owned' isn't generally received very well but saying 'killed' or 'slay' is acceptable

    I think it does depend on context as well. Such as;

    "I don't need my agronomist to tell me that's rape".

    Although I doubt anyone here will understand it.

    I don't know any "murder jokes" BTW - anyone care to enlighten me?
    Bought some baby oil yesterday.

    That'll stop the buggers sticking to the pan.
