This is a really awful and offensive joke to make. Childhood sexual abuse is not something to joke about. It might be a good idea to reexamine how your words and actions can affect victims.

As someone who was sexually abused often as a child. Humor is the only thing that got me through it. I’m sorry if you went through something too but let people have their coping mechanisms. Humor is a lot better than the alternative suicidal ideation and suffering that comes with taking it so heavily. It’s a serious issue yes, but making it so heavy perpetuates the idea of victimhood. We are survivors, not victims.

I didn't read it as a joke. To me it felt like a serious statement rather than a wordplay. But I can see how you would see it otherwise.

I too was molested as a child. Good thing I mostly black out when I try to remember it, I imagine it would be a genuine pain in the ass to actually remember.

Trust me when I say some of us just have very dark senses of humor, and that's okay.

How can you be on this subreddit and not realise the important role humour plays in coping strategies?

You’re responding to someone who said “we”. People are allowed to speak to their own situations in whatever way they choose. You’re not helping with this behavior.
