You know, it's not the worst thing ever to criticize the tone of the article. If you want to say that the story feels incongruous to the tone of the site then I can see where that beef is coming from and that's why I stopped engaging.

I thought it was pretty clear that my response was to HyperGlavin, who implied that the author talking about her rape was somehow normalizing the discussion or making it less serious. Maybe it's a good thing that the issue of rape is being talked about with the same frequency as dumb pop culture shit. Most people can recognize that it's an issue and not something to slap on a t-shirt.

Or some weird unspoken argument happened where you were implying that since we don't know what happened Sargent must have taken a perfectly powerful, inspiring interview and turned it into a poop poop banana fest behind the subject's back. I'm saying it's much less awful when you read it in the context of the subject choosing to have the story framed in the cracked tone.

The article is credited to Anonymous and J. F. Sargent, which means some guy was tasked with adding jokes to a rape story.

That's not what he implied at all. He said that the format and the language normalized the subject matter because it's the same format that Cracked uses for all articles.

The primary consequence of "normalization" isn't an increase in the frequency of the discussion of the topic. It means that the severity of the topic is reduced to the same level of importance as "The 10 Celebrity Twitter Accounts that We Lost in the Past Year" or "The 8 Actors Who Look the Same on Every Movie Poster (Part 3)".

I actually do believe those aren't photoshopped. Photographic technology is very good these days.

Because freshness is expected of any hip-hop artist, I avoid using traditional techniques.

They were ones I specifically remembered as being cool having seen them when they were released on Twitter, etc. then I just searched for them. I think most came from space.com but that one was from ESA's site.

Unless the victim is a child, female-on-male rape is considered so absurd that the only time we really see it is when it's being portrayed as a carousel of slapstick wackiness in mainstream comedies.

I, uhh... hmm
