Welcome To The Bitchery

So my coworker just made a rape joke...

It was mostly innocuous, but I shut down to prevent nuclear meltdown. I've already shrieked at this guy for some insensitive jokes—doing a femme voice when a gay coworker sat behind him (thankfully with headphones on), doing an Asian buffet owner impression in front of our new intern, who is of Asian descent...

Today's hit way too close to home. A coworker mentioned something about her ex-husband, another made a crack about why they broke up, and the aforementioned coworker piped up with "He raped me." Funny. Because you're in a room full of women, two of whom I know are victims of sexual assault at the hands of a partner, me being one of them.

What do I do, guys? He's usually a good time, but this shit has got to stop.
