Reducing rape to a joke trivializes the crime and desensitizes the society. We have evolved in many ways but our brain is still pretty primitive. We still make the most simplest of associations: when we hear rape jokes, we tend to associate rape with something ‘light’. So think twice before laughing at rape jokes.

Using rape as a metaphor is equally dangerous. The ones who do this are trying to define someone’s harsh reality through their imagination.
