As Dan Harmon himself said when he saw it (and reblogged it), “this is really really really cool.” (via Dan Harmon)
- Taking on quite the controversial issue, this essay argues that rape jokes can be funny–when they are the type that disempower the rapist. “The levity with which an atrocity is handled has the power — not that this should be necessary — to illuminate, once again, the seriousness of the subject matter.
