I encourage anyone else who was upset with the Daily Show’s rape joke extravaganza to say so on their Facebook page.

I tend to disagree.  Comedy doesn’t have to be sensitive.  This wasn’t high brow, to be sure, but it was also on comedy central at 11 at night.  What were you expecting?  Keeping Up Appearances?  If anything, the abrasive writing illustrates their point.

…………
let me reword what you said
“Comedy is allowed to make triggering jokes at the expense of victims who are traumatized by their experiences by saying they should ‘lighten up’ and get over it because comedy can be edgy since it’s by people who never have had to experience such issues since somehow using components of rape culture illustrates a point against rape!”

I just watched this like an hour ago and I’m pretty sure the segment was making fun of the idiots who believed crap like “they were asking for it”. It’s clear that the show was not making fun of the victims but rather the stupid people who blame the victims. It wasn’t one of their best segments but this is a misleading statement at best, as it implies that the show actually takes the view that “they’re asking for it” and is on the side of the rapists? 
There’s the issue of whether anyone should ever be allowed to incorporate a serious problem like rape into humor, or really, any grave topic like genocide, racism or war. I really don’t want to go as far as to say that you are never allowed to make jokes about ____ because there are so many serious issues that could qualify here, but I think it really should depend on the joke and the context.

In the streets outside the Garden, people were shouting “JEREMY LIN!” at the top of their lungs, and chanting, over and over, “MVP.” It’s hard not to feel like this isn’t a watershed moment. Hard not to feel like this is historic. Hard not to think that we’re at the cusp of an actual tectonic shift in the culture, when an Asian American “kid” could be the unquestioned king of one of the most storied franchises in sports, the guy that every guy in the room wishes he could meet and every kid in the room wants to grow up to be.
