    I promise you this — you are not going to make the world a better place with your prison rape joke. You are not. I further promise that you can be entirely appalled by a story involving involving the sexual abuse of children and still not resort to gags about dropping the soap. And perhaps someday the idea that rape is not a hilarious feat of karmic comeuppance will be so widely accepted that we won’t need to keep saying this. Not today, though.



    Because if anyone’s going to throw appropriateness to the wind, it’ll be the New York Post, the Murdoch tabloid on Thursday ran a cover image of former Subway pitchman admitted sex offender Jared Fogle with the headline: “Enjoy a foot long in jail.” They’re not talking about hoagies. Why, I have not witnessed such hilarity since the heyday of the Jerry Sandusky story. They were more shower-based, but you get the gist.

    For years, Fogle served as the pitchman for Subway, thanks to a dramatic weight loss he credited in part to a diet featuring the company’s sandwiches. But his relationship with the company ended last month when authorities raided his home. And then this week, Fogle’s attorneys announced his intention to plead guilty to paying for sex with two minors. He reportedly requested, “The younger the girl, the better” when he solicited them. He also pleaded guilty to possession of materials in which “minors depicted in these images or videos were under the age of 18 years, including minors as young as approximately 13-14 years.” It’s estimated he will serve between five and twelve years in prison for his crimes, and then live out his life as a registered sex offender. It’s a disgusting, chilling story. The idea that he now deserves to be raped, and that that’s funny, is pretty gross too.

    The prison rape joke is an offensive if incredibly durable cliché. Earlier this year, it formed the pretty much the whole basis for a Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart movie, in which alleged white collar criminal Ferrell tries to pre-empt a violation during his upcoming incarceration. In 2012’s “Hit & Run,” ex-con Bradley Cooper admits “I got [bleeped] in prison,” prompting a slew of gags about the race of his abuser. This is revolting. It’s revolting on many levels. It’s revolting because it suggests that rape is an acceptable — if not officially sanctioned — form of justice. It’s revolting because it presents rape as the ultimate emasculating humiliation. Raped in prison? LOL that’s so gay! It’s revolting not because any topic is too awful to joke about, but because it’s not funny.



    Many of us understand this. On a 2014 episode of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” the host introduced a montage of prison rape jokes in popular culture, lamenting that “It’s so easy not to care about prisoners. It’s so easy not to care that we are really comfortable making jokes about one of the most horrible things that could happen to them. We are somehow collectively able to laugh about references to the fact that four percent of prisoners reported being sexually victimized in the past year. One in 25.” As Steven W. Thrasher wrote in the Guardian this past spring, that’s around 200,000 individuals over the past few years. Just last month, President Obama spoke out about prison reform, and noted pointedly, “We should not be tolerating rape in prison, and we shouldn’t be making jokes about it in our popular culture. That is no joke. These things are unacceptable.” But until we stop laughing about it, how can we stop tolerating it?

    This world has gotten so fucking insane that child molestors can't even be offended and have to be seen as sympathetic figures?

    I have a friend who did 3 years in state prison.. something silly... he did a prank involving a firecracker and the house caught fire... got charged with arson,

    He said prison rape is virtually non existent.. said there is enough consensual sex that rape is not necessary, and that if you are raped, it was more out of a punishment for some transgression.

    Just his opinion.

    He also said porn was more valuable than gold in prison.

    I think if you asked 100 random people, only a few would have an issue with the headline as it pertains to the fate of a child molester. It's definitely a tired joke, but offensive? Men bang other men in prison, sometimes against their will, and child molesters do not fare well in prison. That's just reality, nothing wrong with dark humor about a dark subject. The number of people offended at every little non-PC thing is probably a lot lower than the media would have you believe, even among lefty liberal bleeding heart tree-huggers like me.

    think about it, bill hicks, george carlin

    by today's standards they are misogynistic, homophobic, islamophobic, racist hate mongers

    good thing they are dead , the orwellian nightmare of PC culture we are living in would have killed them.

    I said to someone, "it looks that murderer Oscar Pistorius is getting out of jail early." They said, "excuse me, it's gun mishap victim, not murderer".

    Maybe it's just me, but I have a hard time taking seriously anyone from Salon.com who claims to be concerned about abuses in our prison system. Personally, I find the culture of rape that exists inside the walls of our prisons to be abhorrent. But that's just one item on a long list of travesties that are currently part of the accepted norm.

    Why are known gang members allowed to congregate with one another inside prison?

    Why do we allow inmates to grossly abuse legal regulations such that they have near unlimited access to their lawyers and gang affiliates, allowing them to run their criminal empires from inside the prison walls?

    Why do we largely look the other way while many of our prison guards are augmenting their incomes by importing drugs, cellphones and all other types of contraband into the general population - further enhancing the ability of these gang lords to exert influence and control over other inmates?

    Conjugal visits? State funded sex change operations? Get the fuck outta here.

    It's the very 'prison reform activists' crying about prison rape now who have toiled away for decades laying the foundation that has made it all possible. Prisoners shouldn't be molested and needlessly abused, but neither should prison be a place that these gangbanger fucks look at as a vacation.

    Fix the underlying issues that make prison a playground for the gang members and a lot of these other problems will become infinitely more manageable. Of course this will require the cooperation of the "community agitators" and the bleeding heart simpleton judges that infest our judicial branch at all levels, so I wouldn't hold my breath.

    So he's not a murderer, he's a gun mishap victim?

    What's that make her, a bathroom accident victim?

    You know a high percentage of mishaps in the home are in the bathroom.

    She should have hid from the angry guy with a gun in a safer room.

    Had the same convo yesterday with someone who called the Pistorius case an "accidental shooting".

    I said, "You mean the one where he shot her like a dog through the bathroom door?" complete with me pantomiming shooting downward.

    The guy quickly changed his tune on it, lols.

    Screw Salon.
    Does anybody give a thought to victims anymore?
    Get off joke patrole, and focus on the fixing justice system. Maybe interview more victims instead of putting scumbags on the cover of the rolling stone in a glam picture.
    I guarantee that NY Post headline bettered the world more than the twat Salon article. It made me laugh.
