Apparently it's a 'bad joke'.

That is fucking hysterical. hmm

No it's not funny.

But I don't get people going out of their way to be offended.

It wasn't in a national newspaper or indeed a billboard on your way to work.

It's not funny and it's badly punctuated.

No, definitely not funny. I remember years ago a friend used the phrase 'sweating like a hooded rapist' and was amazed I was so offended by it. He seemed to think it was 'just a joke'.

I'm not going out of my way to be offended?! I saw it on twitter as did millions of others I'd dare say.

The thing is, if people don't get offended then it doesn't stop. It's all part of our horrible rape apologist culture.

YANBU but I wonder if there are a lot of SA's not being investigated as thoroughly as they should and maybe a victim wrote it??

CookieRookie Mon 15-Oct-12 15:36:30

SA's in that college I mean.

It's possible Cookie though it doesn't appear it would have had the desired effect since the university won't take it seriously.
