Honestly, I was JUST matching your tone. (Which is largely condescending )Telling people what is and isn't funny isn't a helpful way to conduct conversation. EThere IS a way- believe it or not- to think something is both funny and problematic. It's not one or the other, a lot of the time. It's a form of shaming to DECLARE that people shouldn't find something funny and that WE're the problematic ones for even laughing.

If you’re laughing at sexual harassment, you’re laughing at something problematic — both you and the thing that’s making you laugh are engaging in a problematic action. You’re right it’s not one or the other; it’s both.

I have often said exactly the opposite, actually, that it’s fine to enjoy problematic things as long as you can recognize that they’re problematic and don’t try to justify or apologize those problematic aspects when other people find them distasteful.

Okay, so you see that CK harassed as girl as JUST what it is, harassment? EVEN Though, he comes off looking like a bad guy, childish, moronic and neanderthal for the rest of the episode. Did you ever think that the harassment was employed to make CK look like an idiot? And yes, as a rape victim you're aware of rape culture, thank you, you're welcome stop condescending to everyone who disagrees with you, you're not a perfect pinacle of feminism either. I'm allowed to think things are funny

Yup. I’m glad that he comes off that way, though.

You’re not entitled to tell people that their dislike for what you find funny is ridiculous, either.

Honestly, you're being a little ridiculous. I am aware of rape culture and blah blah blah but I also know that CK is very willing to talk and explore the perceptions he holds so its not like his opinions are just in a vacuum. Did you watch the whole scene? CK comes out looking like the bad guy, he walks off of the set and looks like a child for getting so worked up and so mad. That's his style.

I’m being a little ridiculous, but you’re aware of rape culture “and blah blah blah.” Okey-doke.

Look, I don’t doubt that CK’s comedy is good — I am a fan of Louis CK (SHOCKER!) and much of what he does is very intelligent and exploratory. This is not one of those cases. There are other, better ways to make the point he’s trying to make without normalizing harassment. Period.
