It's Truly Shocking That These Words Were Coming Out Of Your Television Last Year

**Trigger Warning**

The writers of "2 Broke Girls" should be ashamed that their show makes up half of this. Hearing jokes like this only antagonizes real victims of rape and makes them relive their trauma.

And to those who think rape jokes are just jokes, something to consider: Almost one-third of all rape victims developed post-traumatic stress disorder sometime during their lifetime; and more than one in 10 rape victims still have PTSD today. That's hundreds of thousands of rape victims who could be traumatized again because you want to laugh at something that really isn't that funny.
