So over on the Rules board there's been a thread about Corehim, in which the SoS FAQ from the Coreheim site came up.
Several people didn't think it was funny, thought it offensive, and called Asp out on it. He replied in a less-than-apologetic way and things went downhill from there. I then called him (and his friends) rape-apologists. Mostly to make them realize just how bad they sound.
He then called me a Holocaust-denier.
So, Asp, ol' buddy. Let's get started shall we?
"So Tom says I should post links to peer reviwed studies.
DeafNala says that I should explain for the Nth time why rape jokes can be funny.
And Cianty says that any further posts not dealing with the rules will be deleted.
...as long as you can all agree. "
You posted two links, one to a (translation of) a book by Freud about jokes. Since only the introduction is available on Google books, I cannot find the passage where it says rape can be funny or why you should be allowed to make rape jokes. Could you be more specific?
The second link was to a study done in 2005 in which 29 males were shown different sexual and rape-related imagery and how this aroused them. Nothing about how 80% of women fantasize about rape (which was your original assertion) or why rape jokes can be funny. Did you notice that the abstract deplores the LACK of actual research into this subject?
"I would like to know why:
- Its okay for someone to call me and my friends "rape apologists", without the mods taking action, but not okay for me to pay that someone back in kind"
Because that's what you were turning into, by continuing to defend you poorly-chosen jokes in relation to an otherwise fun game about fantasy people beating the snot out of each other.
"Paying me back in kind" is also not calling me a holocaust-denier unless you can somehow show that I made a joke about the Holocaust. Which is bloody unlikely as my grandfather on my dad's side was Jewish and he lost several siblings to the Nazi's.
"The real trolls are the people who insist on being "shocked" and "offended" and then believing that such emotional states merit special treatment. *caugh caugh muhammed-cartoons caugh caugh*"
No one is asking for special treatment except you. Trying to turn this into some sort of free speech debate is also a rather weak debating tactic.
I stand by my earlier post about you being a rape-apologist, because that's exactly where your arguments were headed; a rape apologist is someone who blames the victim, which is what your SoS jokes were doing. Fine in itself (if you believe rape jokes can be funny), but when you then get called on it and defend your right to joke about something which some people find VERY offensive, you should expect some flack in return.
So if you want to call me names because you believe I called you names, at least come up with some good ones. Something about cheese and windmills, perhaps.
