Louis CK observes that feminists and comedians are natural enemies. And he also demonstrates on The Daily Show that whereas backing down and apologizing is neither funny nor courageous, kicking fascistic feminists demanding male subservience to female sensibilities in the teeth can be a bit of both.
LCK: For me, any joke about anything bad is great. Any joke about rape, the Holocaust, the Mets, whatever — any joke about something bad is a positive thing.
JS: You have now crossed the line, mister!
LCK: I’ve read some blogs during this whole thing that has enlightened me with things I don’t know. This woman said something how rape polices women’s lives, they have a narrow corridor, they can’t go out late, they can’t go to certain neighborhoods, they can’t dress a certain way, because they might — that’s stuff I didn’t know. And it’s a part of me now in a way that it wasn’t before and I can still enjoy a good rape joke….
Here is the last thing I want to say about it. This is also about men and women. Because a lot of people are trading blogs and stuff about this with each other. Couples are fighting about Daniel Tosh and rape jokes. But they’re both making a classic gender mistake. The women are saying here’s how I feel about this. But they’re also saying my feelings should be everyone’s primary concern. Now the men are also making this mistake, they’re saying your feelings don’t matter, your feelings are wrong, your feelings are stupid. If you’ve ever lived with a woman, you can’t step in shit worse than that, than telling a woman her feelings don’t matter. So, to the men I say listen, listen to what the women are saying about this. To the women I say now that we’ve heard you, shut the fuck up for a minute and let’s all get back together and kill the Jews. That’s all I have to say about it.
