Are you fucking serious?

May 17, 2010 § 4 Comments

Trigger warning.

This is a real thing: a Facebook group that can be “liked” by users, entitled “That awkward silence during rape.” So that if someone you know finds rape hilarious, the statement “So-and-so likes that awkward silence during rape” will appear on your news feed.

REPORT THIS SHIT. Scroll to the bottom left corner of the page and REPORT THIS. TELL YOUR FRIENDS. REPORT THE FUCK OUT OF THIS ASTOUNDING BULLSHIT.

I repeat: what happens online matters. I repeat: rape is not a joke.

UPDATE: It looks like the original page has been dissolved. But I encourage you to report these similar groups: the awkward silence after the rape; It isn’t r.a.p.e…. It’s SURPRISE SEX. (:; to rape you. …The list goes on and on.

I am truly horrified.

    Ugh. I really hate this kind of crap. I went to Facebook to report the group, and they have made their reporting feature more detailed. Would you classify this as “hate speech” or “direct call for violence”?

  • Amelia says:

    Sometimes I am so disgusted with Facebook and the things that people “like” on that website. I spend a lot of my time reporting groups/pages. I’ll get on this ASAP.

    You’re right. Rape is not a joke. Is there really anything more to be said? Let’s repeat: Rape is not a joke.

    Wow. I just saw this page titled, ‘not getting raped’, and there is a ‘discussion’ on the page with the topic of ‘somebody say something funny involving rape.’ Absolutely horrifying.

    Report THAT shit too!

    Oh, did I mention the picture for the page is of an older African-American man with the words ‘You gonna get raped.’
