I think this one went too far.
Way way too far.
I .. I 've told a few of these... But most of these actually *got* to me.

First time in my life I've ever felt the urge to point directly at someone and call it perpetuation of mysoginistic sentiment in a detrimental and gleeful manner.

I think it just... scared me.
... maybe..

""Call me daddy" said the rapist to his victim
"I don't think so,' she replied. "Daddy's dick was much bigger.""

It's really rare that something will make my stomach flip flop like that.

Think it's maybe time to get the hell out of that community. It was funny at first.. but if this is the trend....

Don't worry, I don't think that particular trend could go much further.

I'll say it.

I agree. That really was too much-- I rape and abuse just aint funny.

I think what disturbed me was that.. uhm...no one really said so.
All those guys with those big opinions.
And the poster either got thumbs up or no response, which, from what I've seen, is an implication of approval through lack of dissent.

I don't like drawing lines about what's okay and what's not when it comes to humor. I'm a big fan of raw and disgusting humor, especially where it applies to personal traumas.

But this guy isn't about that.
He's about pushing buttons that it's in no way FUNNY to push.

Re:
I think its the nature of the community itself that has some people confused-- this is supposed to be over-the-top, but.. this... so they just raise their brow or whatever but say nothing. We don't have a consensus on this sort of thing...

I think that there are some people there now who really don't *get* what the original intent was. Hell, sometimes, the people who've been there since the begining say something about the point of the whole thing that baffles me and I have to wonder if *I* know what the point is.

I think of it in the same context as the Man Show.
Would something we say in the community fit into the man show?

child rape jokes wouldn't make it onto the Man Show.

Re:
Buuuuut-- we're libertarian, hon. This is a touchy issue. See... humor, however tasteless you find it, is a very debatable freedom. It's... complicated. The jokes were obviously over-the-top but what can you say besides "I didn't like these." I dont think you can really protest the post....

Dude.. I wasn't saying that they should be taken away.
I wasn't saying they should be banned or they should be "protested".

I attempted once upon a time to start a debate about disgusting humor. About the the kinds of jokes you make when you are entitled to them.
*I* make foul remarks in a joking manner about things that are not usually considered funny.
The debate turned into a bad joke fest... but well... that's beside the point.
I would NEVER say that ya just have to gank his post or tell him he can't say things like that, and I didn't mean to imply that I would.

I simply think that he's a pretty putrid person (based solely on the little I've seen of him) with odd ideas of what discordianism is all about and I was just a lil disturbed by the lack of reaction he got in general.
And while I know that reaction is what he wanted, he also devolved into pissy lil insults so quickly that I think the reaction he WANTED was more of a positive one.


AAAAAAAAnyway. *I* found them pretty fucking out of line. And I think the idea of posting them in feministas is a bad one as far as longevity of the community goes. They *love* their abuse team.

Why am I not surprised? A place called "feministas" would attract that sort of oh-the-bad-man-INSULLLLLTED-me-throw-him-in-jail! bullshit wussy girls, wouldn't it? Bleah. I really hate "feminists"...
