Hello folks. I am looking for some folks to share their stories with the world. I understand that a very small percentage of you will step forward because reliving the trauma is too much for almost anyone to bear. For those of you who can though, I would like to gather your stories to send to Daniel Tosh and every one of the comedians defending him so they can see why this is no laughing matter.
Last night Tosh posted a tweet bemoaning that his show is over and painting himself as a victim. We need to show him what a real victim is and how his, and his defenders, add to that victimization. Joking about horror is only funny and acceptable if you are using it as a tool to heal your own horror or deal with the very real fear you have to deal with as a (under privileged group here.) Joking about something you will, in all likelihood, never have to face, is bogus, cowardly and cruel.
Quite frankly I would like to see him, Louis CK (who I was just beginning to like), Patton Oswalt and all the others forced to subsist on Ramen Noodles for the rest of their life. Barring that, I would like to force them to take a long hard look at the experience they think can be viewed as funny. I would like them to see, clearly see, how his comment about the young woman in his audience was utterly beyond the pale and an example of the kind of silencing women face every day.
So please, if you can, share your stories here, or on my Tumblr where this post will be linked. Daniel Tosh thinks he knows horror, let’s show him what real horror is.
