I watched this debate just now and I thought that it was pretty brilliant. Jim Norton pretty much won for me. All Lindy West seemed to say was,"Make whatever joke you want, I still get to call you a dick!" Anyway, I thought that some of you guys might find this interesting.

Watching it now. The fact that you say Norton won makes this ok. Those Jezebel bitches make me want to vomit.

Jezebel has some good articles, but then there are some pieces where I can't help but roll my eyes and go,"People are actually offended by that?"

Interesting topic, I'll check out the video in a bit.

IMO, bitches just need to calm the fuck down and learn to take a joke.

I'll simply say this; Comedy isn't about being nice.

Today I realized something. It really bugs me that no one asks rape victims what they think of rape jokes. You would think that since these are the people that rape jokes are effecting, people would ask them for their opinion.

Yeah, I agree. I mean, I do have a sense of humor, but rape jokes never sounded good to me. That depends on a certain individual, some women are able to move forward and not be affected by rape jokes, but for some that could be really too much.

I don't really care about the feminist crap, it's not even about women targeted jokes, it's about all of us. I'm cool with comedy, jokes as long as they're not too mean and don't humiliate not women, but all of us.
