Daniel Tosh- Rape Joke and Backlash

12 Jul

An Opinion

Daniel Tosh has been a big topic this week after he was interrupted at his show by a woman shouting that rape jokes aren’t funny. Afterwards, according to the woman, he replied asking the audience how funny it would be if she just got raped then and there by five guys. The woman then proceeded to run out of the show with her equally shocked friend.

Now, there’s a petition to get Tosh.0 off the air (Daniel Tosh’s show on Comedy Central in which he pokes fun at viral internet videos. Don’t get it confused with Rob Dydrek’s mediocre attempt to copy Tosh with his show Ridiculousness.) Each signature on the petition sends an email to the CEO of comedy central with the attempt to completely cancel Tosh.0 with no new episodes or reruns. This petition can be found on change.org and currently has over 19,000 signatures.

Now that the information is out of the way, here’s my perspective on the issue. I have been a fan of Daniel Tosh and Tosh.0 for a very long time and I know this issue is very controversial as it stems from feminism. I believe that the reason Tosh is so popular and has so many fans is BECAUSE he is so vulgar and offensive in his jokes. If he was not, he would just be another washed-up comedian that no one would watch. (Insert Rob Dydrek here). Continue reading

Taming the Beast

11 Jul

Everyone wants what they can’t have. And for me my hair is the perfect example. In other words, it’s a curly mess. And not the pretty curly that gracefully dawns the hair of Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood, the kind that looks like it’s going to eat someone in the morning. Luckily, I’m not the only one which is why god gave us people to make certain products to calm down the beast. Continue reading

First Kiss Drama

11 Jul

In almost every movie about high school, you’ll find a first kiss strategically placed in there. Why you might ask? Because it’s a milestone in any teenage life. For some people, the lucky ones, your first kiss can open your eyes to the world of romance and beauty. Cliché of course, but it’s true. It gives you the confidence to jumpstart your metamorphosis into an adult. Some teenagers may think “it’s been long enough, I just want to get it over with.” That may sound like a good reason then, but I guarantee you it’s not as satisfying as sharing the experience with someone important to you, someone who truly cares about you.
