The Sitcom Season in Rape Jokes: Vulture
Because: When did we start joking so freely about rape?
Perhaps what repulsed me most about reading/watching these pieces (aside from Moore’s laugh, which struck me as jarring and near malevolent, after he cracks the “joke”) was realizing that while I have seen every episode of 2 Broke Girls, and do somewhat enjoy the show, though now I am going to reject that sentiment more. I really never noticed the rape jokes. I’m sure I heard them, but nothing registered as shocking. Apparently, I don’t even notice it anymore, and I do not think that’s acceptable.
