I really hope that was sarcastic.
So basically an individual is forbidden from having a personal opinion on gender versus sex, and rape jokes should be a cause to compromise artistic freedom.
It’s like you’re shouting at a lion to stop eating meat, humanity will and should never be the hugbox you want it to be.
It’s a biologically and empirically correct statement independent of personal gender identification, which is fine, but does not negate physical absolutes.
So a place where everyone agrees with you and there can be no discussion? What’s interesting about that?
The “right to make rape jokes” is not the issue, it’s freedom of speech regardless of who gets offended, especially when most of the offense comes from missing the point and taking it out of context.
It expresses a personal experience other than fear, so it not homo*phobic* by definition.
They didn’t have to apologize for the comic at all.
