As a rape victim, I don't think it's a waste of time to call people out when they use the worst, most violent and life shattering ordeal of my life in a bad pun to sell drinks. Especially considering the fact that so many actual rapists use drinks to victimize people. I don't think it's a small deal. Things like this send two messages. To victims like me, the joke says that what I went through is insignificant enough to laugh about. To rapists, it says that their behavior is not a big deal, kind of funny, and the kind of thing people like this bar owner are far too cool to get all "worked up" over. Thank you to this publication for sending a different message.
