Uh-huh. And ok, you didn't like the execution and you're within your right to, but intent? It's true I get a bit of a rape-y vibe from the Love Doctor reading his virtual text.That's why I put "regardless the context". You don't do it in a professional context or with unfamiliar people, that's just manners, of course. I'm talking about the people who whince and visibly go up in heart rate at the words themselves.

I think you're overstating how much people curse gratuitously here. Maybe it's different in the German part.
yeah. in the german parts, even the young kids (7 or so) are swearing up a storm.

@The Love Doctor: Whilst you and others have argued that the picture was not intended to suggest date-rape and that it was just "a joke", (I believe you, hence I removed my groan), fact is I can see why others might not see it in quite that light.

Like @Cork, I generally find your EF posting style quite humourous and witty but not so on this occasion I'm afraid. Why? Because there are people out there who have experienced being date-raped in this manner and whom I'm guessing wouldn't find that picture funny at all, no matter the context.

@Phil_MCR/Assassin: I can assure you both I don't have a sick mind either.
I think we're on the same side.
I cannot imagine any scenario where making a (Date) Rape joke would be funny.
I just found it depressing that so many people couldn't even recognise that it is a Rape Joke in a mixed, civilised forum like EF.
Thank God it is not an issue I've ever had deal with myself nor among those close to me.

I didn't say it wasn't. Given the context I think it's as light hearted as can be.


Point taken, sorry if you are offended. Just remember it's just a joke, not the first or last one to be made online, and there are much more darker jokes out there.

I appologised for the joke, I understand it's not to everyone's taste, I wish I could think of a witty reply / joke to ease off the tension but I can't.

Seems everyone is on edge today

Is not an apology.

An apology would look like "I'm sorry I offended you" ... apologizing for YOUR behavior. What you did was apologize for Cork's reaction.

Do you see the difference?

Mr. Phil.

You and I both know it is a joke about rape. I'm shocked at some of the responses given by others, who seem to get offended at the slightest drop, but yet defending the joke, which is distasteful and inappropriate at best.

Then again, you're the one who posted a link to a photo of naked breasts, penis and jizz, so I guess I'm expecting a little much in the propriety department.

I didn't apologise for her reaction and I don't need to.

The difference is the way I said it, assumes I haven't offended her, the way you THINK I should have done it assumes I already did.

I'm gonna leave it at that.

How do you fail to understand this as an indication that Cork is indeed offended?

How is it even a question?

Oh, my apologies, I misremembered.

It's a photo of a woman with jizz on her neck AND a drawing of a sex act. You're right.

Still not appropriate.

That's a very acute observation. It depends what your angle is, I suppose.
