So rape is a punchline now in the Twitterverse

Posted By on Tue, Feb 19, 2013 at 5:12 PM

Is it possible that state Rep. Joe Salazar knew the size of shitstorm he was about to cause Monday Friday when he launched into his impolitic diatribe over House Bill 1226, banning guns on college campuses? Probably not.

Here's what he said:

Maybe he has never heard of U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, ’cause why the Thorton Democrat decided to frame his vote in favor of the bill using the mythical response of women to rape is anyone's guess.

But he did. And now Twitter is punishing the rest of us with an onslaught of "jokes" based on the various ways liberals might suggest women avoid being raped.

If you've ever wondered if the majority of Twitterers are funny or insightful, just visit #LiberalTips2AvoidRape for confirmation. They're not. Far from it.
