Pop Culture Detective: Sexual assault of men played for laughs

milkboys Film & TV, Films & TV, News & Opinions 6 Comments

It’s hard to overstate just how common jokes about men being sexually assaulted are in entertainment media. Most popular comedic actors engage in this type of humor. Jokes are typically designed to demean, humiliate, control, or emasculate a male character for being the victim, or potential victim, of sexual violence.

This is the 1st of 2 video essays on this topic. Part 1 focuses on humor involving men sexually assaulting or harassing other men. Part 2 will examine media in which women are depicted as the perpetrators.

  1. The world is just too politically correct now. I get my bum pinched at work regularly and don’t mind, it is a form of flattery to me. People are just too sensitive these days.

  2. Thankfully I’m not a retarded, always looking out to get offended, social justice warrior and just don’t give a fuck. But the tactic they are using here is not so dumb, get the professional anti-sjw on your side by speaking about male victims, especially if the offender is a woman.

    The only thing that really offends me are the prison jokes or more precisely the fact that they aren’t really jokes, but the reality and how that reality is accepted by the American public, what a sick country. Dark humor is one thing, but when the audience doesn’t even know that it is dark humor it is just sad.

  3. Video way to long and serious for Milkboys blogs.
    I would also questions if they are making a problem out of something that is not a big deal for most gay guys.

  4. Good message.

    Accepting any form of rape culture makes any form of rape culture “socially” acceptable.

    Locking people up just incubates crime and inequality and breeds anger. Its like hoarding but rather then newspapers its human beings and is equally as unhealthy and dangerous.

    Western society focuses so much on the negative it has created some very disturbing norms.

    1. Yeah right, the western world, the epitome of all the bad stuff. You wouldn’t wanted to life there as a woman or gay person. Oh wait, that is the islamic, african and asian region…
