Feminism, Rape and Comedy - Can Rape Jokes Be Funny?
Jun 24 13
Is it appropriate for comics to have jokes about rape? How does that play into a culture of violence? Alicia Sowisdral, from PopGoesAlicia.com and Phaydra Babinchok, Director of SlutWalk, have a discussion with Luis about "Rape Culture" and its relation to comedy.
This passionate discussion explores the many facets of feminism and whether comedy is perpetuating a culture of violence against women. Both Sowisdral and Babinchok are self-labeled feminists who bring their own experiences with misogyny to the discussion.
