Patton Oswald discusses rape jokes and why people can't deny rape culture exists.

I agree with him that you can't deny that a rape culture exists.
But I don't agree with him on this point:
First off: no one is trying to make rape, as a subject, off-limits. No one is talking about censorship. In this past week of re-reading the blogs, going through the comment threads, and re-scrolling the Twitter arguments, I haven’t once found a single statement, feminist or otherwise, saying that rape shouldn’t be joked under any circumstance, regardless of context. Not one example of this.

There are people in this very thread saying that and they're wrong.
