Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault, Rape jokes
I want to say that I have never been raped. But I have been sexually assaulted; I was molested when I was 5 years old by an extended family member.

They don’t watch comedians known for making racist jokes, or hang around racists or people prone to enjoying that kind of humour, do they?
This all boils down to you being choosy about who you spend your time around, and what you spend your time doing. If you don’t enjoy something, stay the fuck away from it. Don’t try to control other people to make you feel better, that’s foolish and it won’t ever happen. YOU be the smart one and stay away from it.
If you don’t have the choice, then shit, looks like your company is going to be forced to learn a very awkward lesson, and you’ll teach that empathy to them one little group at a time. But really. This whole anti-Daniel Tosh thing is stupid. He’s a fucking moron, that’s true, but a whole culture’s misdoings shouldn’t be pinned on one guy. (He wouldn’t even have a show if he didn’t get ratings, would he? Every person in his audience is just as guilty as he is. Think that one over.)
