[TW: Rape Culture] But humor loses all potential for redemption when it is used in a way that makes marginalized, victimized people feel unsafe, unwanted, and invisible. That is how I feel when you make a rape joke. You made the worst, most heart-breaking, most disempowering trauma I have ever been through, and you made it into a joke. You made my suffering into a punch line. I hope that was not your intention, but those are the impacts of your words that you could have just as easily kept to yourself.

I actually just sat at my desk and cried when I read this. This is everything I’ve been wanting to say the past few days, and now I feel so overwhelmed and happy that I found it. Oh god, thank you. THANK YOU.
