why is it that people laugh at jokes that abuse women, handicapped people, ethnic minorities - in fact anyone who is different? Is that the reason, their being different? Does that threaten them in any way?
And I am not speaking of men only - I have heard women tell jokes about rape...
People tell me I have no sense of humour because I entirely fail to see the funny side of rape, abuse, concentration camps, etc.
And I cannot understand how they can laugh
