Video: Comedian Louis C.K. Says "Feminists Can’t Take a Joke"

| by Michael Allen

Comedian Louis C.K appeared on 'The Daily Show' last night to discuss fellow comic Daniel Tosh and his controversial rape joke (video below).

C.K. told host Jon Stewart that any topic should be fodder for jokes and that dialogue is always a good thing.

C.K. said: “I think you should listen. If someone has the opposite opinion as mine, I want to hear it so I can add to mine. I don’t want to obliterate it with mine. That’s how I feel. Now, a lot of people don’t feel that way. For me, any joke about anything bad is great. That’s how I feel. Any joke about rape, the Holocaust, the Mets, whatever."

"But now I’ve read some blogs about this whole thing that enlightened me to things I didn’t know. This one woman said how rape is something that polices women’s lives. They have a narrow corridor. They can’t go out late, they can’t go in certain neighborhoods, they have to dress a certain way. And that’s part of me now that wasn’t before. And I can still enjoy a good rape joke so I have both now.”
