Would anyone you know make this joke? I hang around people that make dirty jokes all the time, but none have ever made jokes about pedophelia. They would be cast out instantly.

I think her intention was to be funny because she is a famous woman but it still just isnt funny.

I'd joke about almost anything but.. nope. There's no humor there unless you're targeting a certain demographic that she's probably rubbing elbows with.

Also if you want more context to her tweet, please read Kurt Eichenwald's 2006 article about the hidden world of pedophiles (back when New York Times actually wrote good articles) http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/21/technology/21pedo.html

One interesting quote from that article states that some pedophiles view children as the aggressors:

Many of these adults described concepts of children that veered into the fantastical — for example, at times depicting themselves as victims of predatory minors. A little girl in a skirt reveals her underwear by doing a cartwheel; a boy in a bathing suit sits on a bench with his legs spread apart; a child playfully jumps on a man’s back — all of these ordinary events were portrayed as sexual come-ons.

Makes you want to "Take a Second Look" at her tweet...

There was a shill on here stalking me for almost two weeks arguing with me and berating me because I did not understand that children have sexual feelings toward adults. I of course told him he was sick and wrong. But it kept up. They just don't get it. They really believe this. That is the sick part. I am no longer bothered.

Unless the child has begun puberty then it's impossible to feel sexuality feelings if your a child. Not that it would be right either way, mind.

I've read of convicted pedophiles on several occasions claiming that the child was trying to seduce them. I've not heard of the book referenced above, but this information is generally obtainable from the news reports themselves.

You're implying that it came from his own head because he's a pedo? Genuinely curious.

Silverman says: "Hey, is it considered molestation if the child makes the first move? I'm gonna need a quick answer on this."

Good comeback quote:

@SarahKSilverman Is it considered humour if no one laughs? Take all the time you need.

Here's that controversial guy's answer (DSeaman): @SarahKSilverman on another note, I believe your public incitement of violence against Executive branch earlier this yr is a class E felony

Its not humor...her job is to degenerate society.

Danny Koch exposes this when he was asked to play a "crazy hispanic" on Seinfeld;

It's a joke. It's funny. Silverman has some ideas that are weird, but that's a joke. Some kid probably grabbed her butt at a BBQ and she thought of some funny shit.

Seriously, this is stupid. Get some real evidence.

If this is to be taken seriously, then it's like saying every time someone gets taken out of context we've gotta take that seriously too.

Yeah, maybe your friends don't joke like that. Well they aren't comedians. Probably not pushing the envelope and occasionally pissing people off.

Good to know at least some people here are sane. People here seem to forget that there is such thing as artistic license and black humour.

The joke wasn't funny, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a joke.

75% of the people here are hysterical morons. Fortunately that doesn't mean they can't make useful connections... oddly enough it might even help.

And are we forgetting that around this time Mary K. Letourneau was getting married and having kids with her victim? So, yes, comedians made jokes about this type of stuff.

Sometimes I wonder how the obvious nonsense gets propped up. Like both sides of the debate have a slew of illogical people that circulate the same bullshit which makes their side look absurd to the other.

edit: let's distill this down and identify the core problem:

In order to matter, claims about the nature of reality MUST be supported by evidence. Claims are not evidence. What someone says is not evidence of what's claimed. It's only evidence that it was claimed.

She's not funny in any way shape or form. Mel Brooks is funny. All in the Family was funny. Seinfeld was (often) funny. Dick van Dyke show was funny. Etc. She's disgusting. Doubt she herself is a pedo.

I'm gonna be honest, I clicked this completely expecting to remove it via rule 2. What the fuck, Sarah Silverman? I guess that explains why she's so anti-Trump.

Hitherto I'd gained a grudging acceptance to the activity of the mods here. I thought at least the deleted submissions were archived and discussions could remain active. (Of course, hardly anyone goes there; they are difficult to navigate; they are not searchable.)

Today I learned they don't go back very far, about 8 days. If you go to the following link, there is a Next button, however if you click on it you get the Voat not found screen.

Again, mods are discussing this right now. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will address this issue in the next open thread, and hopefully have a solution. This is a Voat issue, not subverse-specific. I'm bringing up the idea to archive the link once a week. Thanks!

This is a big problem for transparency, deleted or not, all content should be considered a candidate for backup/archiving; we have to be held accountable across a much longer period of time than 8 days.

The submissions are still around, if you had a comment in you can still find them. They are just not indexed by Deleted Submissions.

Admins are aware and working on a solution which could be periodic archives going forth.

Absolutely nobody had responded to that tweet until Monday. She's as irrelevant now as she was then, only now she's pissed off the wrong (right) people.

The demographic that she was entertaining with that brand of 'humor' seems to be keeping her plenty relevant despite our indifference.
