First off, I’ve taken the liberty of underlining the most relevant parts of your little self-righteous speech here.Next, I’d like to ask… how many forms of comedy can this shoddy logic NOT be applied to? Say you have a relative who dies by falling off of a cliff. Should Road Runner cartoons be banned for insensitivity? Do people who plant bombs feel secretly validated when watching them because “Hey, the Warner Brothers ‘normalized’ violence through explosive devices”? Why pick only ONE sort of joke to grand-stand against? Let’s go after Beavis and Butthead for trivializing the lack of guidance and poor education of teens from low income areas! Let’s ban that horrible movie “Zack and Miri Make A Porno” for glorifying an industry that exploits women! Let’s take down the 21 Jump Street movies for mocking our hard working law enforcement officers, many of which have been KILLED in those wacky slap-stick gunfights depicted! How dare they! Then, we’ll take our righteous crusade over to sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory for stereotyping intelligent people as socially awkward, weak little cowards! Because, you know, terrorists, politicians who refuse to fund public schools, human sex traffickers, cop killers, and bullies all look at this stuff and say, “You know what? What we’re doing really IS ok, because I was validated by someone who cracked some fucking jokes!”HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE THE SMELL OF YOUR OWN FUCKING FARTS, YOU GOD DAMNED IDIOT??I normally don’t ask this of my few followers on tumblr, but if you’re sick of preachy fuckwads like the one who made this series of tweets, please re-blog this! If you reblog anything on my site here, make it this!Oh and that “drops the mic” thing at the end literally made me shiver with the worst douche chills I think I’ve ever had in my life! Get over yourself, stupid!
This post will simply be ignored by anyone who disagrees with it. Why will it not be answered? Because it can’t be.

um wow, the point of her series of tweets were to highlight an aspect of rape culture that is so widespread - like rape. 1 in 6 women in the US have been the victim of sexual assault, and you’re treating it like it’s this “fringe phenomenon.” HELLO THIS IS NOT A FRINGE PHENOMENON. 
And the fact that you’re applying this logic to falling off a cliff in a cartoon trivializes rape and sexual assault. Sorry but not. Your post can be answered with a simple mirror. 
And I love the smell of my own fucking farts.

Yeah, this dude is an idiot and Priya’s words are spot on here.
In America:
1 im 3 Native American women will be raped1 in 4 Black women will be raped1 in 6 white women will be raped
Nearly 100% of these rapes will be at the hands of men. Rapists tend to have a high rate of recidivism. Hearing jokes about rape on a regular basis makes it seem more acceptable to rapists. That’s a problem. I’m glad this dude compiled all of these tweets into one place. He meant it to be an insult to her, but ignore his text and keep reblogging. This is a message people need to hear and understand.

I’m actually not the one who compiled them like this. Check out the stats for the other issues I mentioned. Even if some are less prevalent, does that make them any less important? Or does something have to happen every 5 minutes for you to care about it? If not, I repeat: Why not ban all humor about all of it?

Nobody is banning or censoring anybody, bruh. She’s asking people to consider the affect of their words. You can still make rape jokes. She’s just letting you know why that’s shitty and the harm it does. Neither she nor anybody has to advocate for every single thing every single moment of every single day. This is something she tweeted about. It is not the only thing she cares about. And if you think other issues are deserving of or needing more awareness, the answer is to draw awareness to those things as well. There’s no need to stop talking about or focusing on this as well. Take your concerns and advocate for them like she did with hers instead of working to stop her from advocating because you personally don’t find value in it or would rather something else be discussed. You don’t have to try and stop this conversation. You can start or join a new or ongoing one about the things that matter to you. She can keep talking about what matters to her.
