Bringing this back to the debate over rape jokes, the approach to them is generally mysognistic and still appears to be acceptable in certain circumstances. Anyone heard Frankie Boyle tell a gay rape joke? Or is that an area that comics would shy away from because they don't care if they are labelled as sexist but wouldn't want the tag of homophobic attached to them?
I'm not sure the approach to rape jokes is misogynistic at all, I think that's more the perception of rape in general. Like that Jim Jefferies joke about 9 out of 10 people enjoy gang rape, from what I've heard there's no mention of whether the 'victim' is male or female, yet people assume they're female and make out it's a misogynistic joke.
And Frankie's made various jokes about gay guys, from renaming fairy lights to poof lanterns, a joke about gay Dad's, even a sketch about man on man rape in the 2050 house. Then there was the joke 'Watching Queer eye for the straight guy made me think that if I hung out with gay guys they'd give me fashion tips - in actual fact they f**ked me'. Which could be construed as gay rape.
