Dear Metro, Is sexual assault really so funny that it makes you snort tea through your nose?

I ask because in your article 27 things men do in bed that women hate you seem to suggest that the list your readers provided was ‘hilarious’.

Now, I might have missed something here but I am not quite seeing what is ‘hilarious’ about (for example) number 16:

‘Being so aggressive with their hands during foreplay that they pretty much give you internal bleeding and bruising.’

Or number 18:

‘Pulling your hair so hard you scream and your eyes water.’

The list goes on, biting, putting ‘objects inside’ someone, anal sex without asking or using lube…

These answers are all quite legitimate answers to ‘things [some] men do in bed that [some] women hate’ but let’s be clear…what some of the readers of the Metro have described is sexual assault.

Personally, I’m not seeing anything too funny in that and I find it amazing that both a journalist and then an editor have.

 

UPDATE: the journo who wrote the original article is evidently looking for more laughs. An hour ago she tweeted:

    The fact that a female writer that this was okay is kinda of troubling is it not? http://wp.me/p4oODX-X
