Cameron Esposito released her critically-acclaimed one-hour stand-up special, Rape Jokes, which was aimed to attract people’s attention to the problem of sexual assault and the life of survivors afterwards, which is exhausting and terrible. And now she speaks about it and many people of the audience come out and tell about their experience, it is now easier for them to live with it. Those who are not the victims are shocked to find out that such a cruelty towards women (and some men) still exists in 21st century, when people’s dignity is treated as the main value. “We’ve always been here. We’ve kind of always been saying this stuff. You’re maybe listening now for the first time,” said the comedian. “I also have to definitely make sure that I stand up for people of color, that I stand up when a trans person that is just trying to f***ing go to the bathroom. As a family, we are in the unique position of caring about each other even though we’re not all in the same demographic. Yes, comedy can change the world, I think, otherwise I wouldn’t do it. But also, the real work is on anybody that reads this”
