    Why the heck do we have random rape imagery in the comments that hasn't been HRed out of sight?  

    •  It is very offensive humor, to be sure, (1+ / 0-)

      but it is not random, IMO. One of the arguments opponents of same-sex marriage use is that the LGBT community is trying to "shove their agenda down our throats", which is itself rape imagery.

      Frankly, I think this bit of adolescent humor from National Lampoon illustrates just why the "shove the agenda down our throats" meme is so very highly offensive, which in my opinion, it is.

      Of course, the right--especially the religious right--is fond of rape in general, apparently.

        I do know why people use it.  I don't, however, think it's at all appropriate to see in the comments, not in this form.

          I had a lesbian professor in college who used to draw those kinds of analogies all the time, to point this stuff out. However, if I had posted that comment, I would have followed it up with what I said in mine.
