Are there hilarious rape jokes out there, twinkling and waiting to be discovered in the dusty old joke mines? Sure, that’s possible, and we’ll let you know when we hear one. Instead, when I hear a rape joke, what I hear is, ‘I don’t care about women.’ I hear, ‘I want to laugh at women’s concerns, and I want you to laugh with me.’ Rape jokes reinforce the idea that male identity is neutral and normal, and female identity is marginal and laughable.
