There’s a form of mental torture called “gaslighting,” its name taken from a play in which a man convinces his wife that the gas lights in their home she sees brightening and dimming are, in fact, maintaining a steady glow. His ultimate goal is to drive her into a mental institution and take all her money, and soon the woman ends up in an argument with herself about whether she’s losing her mind. American race relations have a similar narrative: An entire set of minorities confident that the everyday slights they’re seeing are real and hurtful, and an entire set of other people assuring them that they’re wrong.

So here’s the real reason that rape jokes are troubled territory -

Because rape victims say so.

They get to say that. They get to feel that way. On this, they get to set the cultural rules.

It’s not about right or wrong, or logic versus emotion, or arguments of over sensitivity or hypocrisy - you have the free speech to make whatever jokes you want or talk about rape in whatever way you feel is illuminating. But they get to be upset about it. And call you on it. And be hurt by it.

But consider this:

You get to not be a rape victim.

They, however, are not afforded that luxury. Ever again.

divorce is illegal in the Philippines?
Anonymous

Oh yeah. We’re the only country left after Malta legalized divorce. Us and the Vatican.

(Here’s a boring article about it.)

That doesn’t mean couples don’t separate or get their marriages annulled though. It’s just that annulments cause a LOT of money. Money people usually don’t have so getting married is still a biggish deal.

So I’m going to go ahead and stuff my face with cake and chocolates. Sick be damned.
