The first joke is when they tell you to be strong for everybody else after your father leaves for the fourth time.

The next joke is when they tell you to stop being sensitive when the children at school choose to hurt you for being differentstrangeodd.

The wrong joke is when they tell you to be quiet after the beating your mother has given you has bloodied your face and you can't see through swelled shut eyes.

The funny joke is when they tell you to shut up when you stand up against the man with lifeless eyes who tried to make you as lifeless as himself.

The unaware joke is when they tell you that you should have defended yourself when three men come at you in a dark alley.

The painful joke is when they tell you you should be grateful that the man who raped you didn't kill you as well.

The angry joke is when they tell you that you are wrong for existing because being gaybilesbiantransexual is a sin.

The ignorant joke is when they tell you to be less provocative with your man when he punches you in the face.

The medical joke is when they tell you that you're deliberately killing your children when you are trying over and over again for a child and losing them.

The anti joke is when they tell you that you don't have the right to be sad because you don't have a mental illness, just trauma.

The embarrassing joke is when they tell you you that you're not strong enough to handle it when you speak out about the damage of emotional abuse.

The broken joke is when they tell you you're damaged and no one will want you because you have been used and thrown away.

The worst joke is that they tell you that you were born a woman in a world where men rule.

Yes. The jokes are funny. They are so good they're bloody jewels.

Can you hear them laughing? They think their words ring true.

Because at the end of the day, to them, the funniest joke of them all is you.
Ranty rant rant. We all have good days and bad days. Today is one of my bad days. :(

Sorry in advance for the angry ranty poem guys. :( People in real life have really pissed me off with their judgmental attitude and it all comes screaming back.

EDIT: Title changed on a friend's recommendation. She said it would add more to the poem's ideology and sticks more to the subject matter, and I agree with that.

Your writing is always so captivating. I think I can feel a little of your pain right through your words. Thank you for making words that are so human.

My mom always told me, if you are not provoked by them, then the joke is on the them. ^_^

Your rants are always so beautiful, you could pour them into a cup and flowers would bloom in them.

What I see here is how people are so obsessed with humor, laughing about everything, letting things slide because "it's all in humor" that they don't notice it trivializes serious subjects. Black humor is well and good, but throwing the word 'rape' around is disgusting - and if you're it "only for the laughs", it's even more disgusting.

"The next joke is when they tell you to stop being sensitive when the children at school choose to hurt you for being differentstrangeodd.
The sadder joke is that when you defend yourself, they will come looking for you and ask you why you acted in violence and thus made them angrier.
