I’ve found a new comedian to watch and enjoy.
This is good, because I have had/am having an incredibly stressful week. We are talking more stress than I have ever felt in my life; this is bury-you-alive, crush-your-bones-to-dust stress. On top of school and work, emotional triggers surrounding past assaults have been battering at my senses, making me alternately livid, tearful, numb, or just insane.
Trigger warning for use of the word rape. It’s at the very end of the video, so you can watch until about the last two minutes or so and avoid it. It’s not a rape joke; this whole segment is about how the words we use, as a society, are really fucked up and essentially meaningless — specifically “unsweetened tea”, “non-smoker”, and “date-rape”. I’m in complete agreement with him about the last one, and he says it in a way that can make you laugh.
