This was great. I used to date a survivor (to be precise she was a Baby Lift baby, from the plane that wasn't shot down) but was also raped at a festival before I got to know her and we started dating. So for me, it was a bit of a double-whammy as she was extremely suicidal and binge drank, something that the 19-year-old me did nothing but support. When I saw her making out with someone else at a party, I just left, and she followed after me, like "why are you leaving?" I turned out using my lifeguard skills to save her from a freezing lake that night, because she wanted to go out like Jeff Buckley. I broke up with her soon after that, but was always worried. Frankly I loved her more than anything in the world but I couldn't fathom the PTSD. I felt horrible about leaving like I did, and we didn't see each other for years and years. Frankly I thought she had tried it again, even though I was married. But then she popped up on facebook, stronger than ever, literally. She owns a fucking gym now, and is married and is happy. Go girl!!! (thanks for listening poetv therapists)

Sounds very much like my first girlfriend, from what I can infer it was a family member and it was systematic over the course of years. Sadly our separation wasn't that great because of a toxic "friend" in her life. I regret never having done a better job about that and listening to my stupid mother about the whole thing. However, before that I did manage to get her convinced to open up to her therapist about her childhood. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't wonder if she's doing better.

The whole situation made me vastly rethink life and society, I'm far more aware of my behaviour and that of others and the shit women (and minorities) go through. I've manage to help a few others over the years as well, I just wish I could do more like ROUS and his friend did/does for kids on the street.

She wound trying to take her life as well, didn't succeed though. To this day I cannot deal with any movie that shows wrist slashing, during her stay in the hospital a friend tried to comfort me and we watched The Royal Tenenbaums. After that suicide attempt in the movie and the view of his wrists, I just curled up in the bathroom and cried. I couldn't deal. Great movie, just carries heavy connotations for me now.

How to properly deal with trauma:
1) Make an enemy out of literally everyone
2) Let outrage become your only source of motivation and self worth
3) Create a microblog wherein you post nothing but bad webcomics drawn by other people

5 for utter shit.

I guess "poem" equals "lecture" to some people. It's not that I disagree with the sentiment, per se, but jesus.....

Yeah people with rape need to get over it. Here's an example--one time I bought a copy of Just Cause 2 on Steam for full price and--guess what!--two days later it went on sale! But did I get all "outraged" about it? No! I sucked it up and dealt with it, and women should do the same.

This platform seems like it's ripe for abuse. I like to think I understand the arguments here, but it seems like this venue might also attract people who enjoy being righteously outraged (maybe without justification?), people who are really just looking for a chance to basically masturbate in public. But really, I'm a 31 year old guy who's been in a very male dominated industry for a while now, so my perception might well be skewed...

So stay off my lawn.

My thought as I was watching: "I agree with the sentiment, but the delivery is annoying. Still, those women are performing their asses off, can't deny that!"

Then I hit "Oh shit, musta been a ghost then!" and I now reverse my "delivery is annoying" part. That was awesome.

I wonder where these cunts hang out that rape jokes are fucking rampant. I can only think of one single rape joke I've ever heard (it involves clowns), and it's hilarious.

Read the FAQ on how stars work when someone posts something terrible and you agree that it's terrible.

Lef - 2014-09-23

I want there to have been an old G. I. Joe character named "Rape Joke", just so we could watch the cartoons and wonder what the hell we were thinking.

"Snow Job, Mainframe, and Rape Joke, you take out the Cobra transmitter tower!"

"You got it Duke, those snakes won't know what hit 'em, like a freshman at her first frat party!"

Ever notice how people who say "rape jokes" don't seem to like _any_ jokes?
Binro the Heretic - 2014-09-22
That was a terrible rape joke.

Here's a better one:

This guy is out hiking in the woods when he hears someone call for help. He goes to investigate and finds a naked man covered in scratches & bruises. He appears to be hugging a tree but on closer inspection the hiker sees the guy's wrists have been tightly bound on the other side of the trunk.

"Oh my God!" exclaims the hiker, "Are you okay?"

"Thank God you're here!" cries the young man, craning his neck around to look at the hiker. "Untie me, quick!"

"What happened? asks the hiker making his way closer.

"Well," explains the naked guy, "I drove up here with this girl I've been trying to nail. Once we were deep in the woods, I told her she could put out or start walking. So she acted like we were going to do it, but as soon as all my clothes were off, the bitch kicked me in the balls, shoved me out of my fucking car and drove off."

"Uh...wow..." says the hiker.

"So I started running down the road after her, but as I was running along, a God-damned grizzly bear came busting out of the bushes on the side of the road. I dove into the woods on the other side and started running."

"Holy shit!"

"Yeah, so I'm running and getting all torn up by holly leaves and shit and I look back to see if the fucking bear is still after me and I don't see that I'm coming to a steep hill. I run right off it and start rolling down."


"And I get all banged up on rocks on the way down, but I get stopped by a dead log lying part way down the hill."

"Well, that's lucky."

"NO! It was full of bees! And my cock had slammed right up against the knothole they use to go in and out."

"Oh, fuck!"

"So I get stung a couple of times, jump up and half-run/half-tumble the rest of the way down the hill and run through some more bushes until I'm sure the bear and the bees aren't chasing me anymore."

"How did you get tied up like this."

"Well, I'm holding my throbbing dick, panting and gasping for breath when I look up and see this little kid in a cub scout uniform. He looks scared as Hell."


"Yeah, the little shit starts screaming bloody murder and just as I run forward and slap my hand over his mouth, a whole bunch of scouts come rushing out of the trees along with two scout masters."

"Aw, geez..."

"They beat the shit out of me and left me tied to this tree! They went to get a ranger. You gotta help me out of here, fast!"

The hiker takes a good look around and steps up behind the guy tied to the tree. "Dude," he says pulling down his zipper, "this just isn't your day."

The pedophile walks along a dark path in the forest, a young child by the hand.

It is the middle of the night, it is pitch black except for a full moon occasionally peeking out from the ominous clouds in the stormy sky.

The wind howls through the branches, an owl hoots.

The young child looks up to the pedophile and says "but Sir, I am scared to walk through the forest at night."

The Pedophile looks down, his face absolutely terrified, and says "Shut the fuck up kid, I'm the one whose going to have to walk back here alone"

So what the fuck kind of competition was this, where this dog shit made it to the finals?

Probably one where nobody wanted to be accused of being a rape supporter.

There's already a much, much better poem about rape jokes, called "Rape Joke." These two are kind of trying to gild the lily here.
