actually I kinda did it to point out just how inane, stupid, and offensive it is t use rape as a euphamism for anything. it made me feel like a dirty jack hole....a total jerk, a worse person than I was befre I wrote it. it's not funny and it's not something to use in any situation.

Unless discussing the enviroment. Rape seems an appropriate term to use there. At least, it's the only time I haven't been even mildly put off by the use of the term.

Though I do recall Carlin saying any subject is worthy of laughter.

He claims Rape is acceptable and then proves it by saying "Picture Elmer Fudd Raping Porky Pig".

However, only Carlin can get away with that.

ok glad this is back on topic.....I just can't see how people can rant about things being the worst thing ever and continue to buy it.....before the winick run I owned e very even single panel appearace of green arrow since he first grew the beard and personaity......and most of the stuff before then. what happened after straight shooter....well, I dropped GA and won't touch it tll winnie is done......why? Because I'm not gonna buy what I think is bad.....i'm gonna send a message with my money because I know that the only way a team will change is if sales don't work.you can't make someone believe you are unhappy by buying something you don't like just because you love the character....

I have really enjoyed the well thought-out perspectives of the perfectly reasonable Titans fans (not to be confused with main mod TitansFan) in this thoughtful thread.

Further, I would be willing to have my nether regions branded with a red-hot poker in order to see comic-book adventures of Beast Boy and Starfire. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must go burn Dan Didio in effigy and pray for his violent death for the outrageous offense of assigning a guest artist to a comic book about people with superpowers who aren't real.

Maybe comicbloc needs to lift the age limit for joining from 13 yrs old if we're going to include jokes about sodomy and rape in discussions.

There was rape by sodomy in that. I missed that page.

I think the mental image of "Elmer Fudd Raping Porky Pig" has fried my brain and killed my memory.

*questions my sanity because I've just contributed to the whole 'rape and sodomy discussion' *
