Rape is Not a Punchline!

There have been numerous bits in recent and even older episodes where rape is used as a joke on Family Guy. I love crude humor as much as the next guy, but this is crossing a line. Family Guy goes to great lengths to make these incredibly uncomfortable and horrifying scenes and it's just plain not funny. It's disgusting, and there is something seriously wrong with the people who come up with these ideas and think they're hilarious.

Below are a series of clips that demonstrate exactly what I'm referencing. They can be a bit disturbing to those with traumatic past experiences. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFIDVMYx34o This one's a deleted scene - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_0u0qzDTq8&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GL48lTgnk5Y

Mr. MacFarlane, we do not find this funny. We will not "lighten up" as this is a serious issue and should be treated with respect. Please, stop using a traumatizing experience in a persons life as a cheap way to get laughs.

Sincerely,
