Rape Sloth?  
I am so appalled at the number of people who think this is funny. For those of you who find it funny, think about the people who have been raped. Think about how that kind of material might make them feel. If you were raped -- which is an embarassing, self-depreciating, hurtful act that makes a person feel like he/she is not a person at all who couldn't save his/her body from personal invasion -- would you like seeing jokes like that all over the internet? I'm not hating on anyone that thinks it's funny; I'm just asking you to use some caution in regards to where you share this "joke", because you may not know it, but you probably have someone on at least one of your friends lists that has been raped.

As a rape victim, though it was well over 9 years ago, this makes me feel small. This makes me feel like I should be ashamed. It took years for me to come to terms that I have nothing to be shameful about, nothing to blame myself for. This kind of material is not funny. I wish people would think before they post hurtful things like this. I can only imagine how other victims feel -- especially those who have had this happen recently.

I just did a google search as i had no idea what it was.
I am totally horrified that such a thing exists.

What the... I just googled it as well and the whole thing makes my skin crawl.

People can be such assholes, ugh. I'm sorry. :(
