This is my horrified face.
Was listening to 105.9 FM this morning. And here's the gist of it:

Mike: It's time for Would You Rather! [Blah blah] Last question: Would you rather be unconscious while someone violated you or wide awake?
Kate: ... You mean like rape?
Mike: Uh, yeah, sure.
Claire: Definitely awake. I'd want to put that guy away and pay for what he did to me.
Kate: Definitely unconscious. I wouldn't want to remember something like that!
Claire: ... But then you wouldn't be able to identify who did it and put them away so they wouldn't do it to someone else.
Kate: Hey, that's fine by me. I don't want to deal with what that would to do me to remember.
[Jokes about therapy bills and such abound.]
Mike: I deem Kate the winner of this round!
Claire: ... WHAT?
Mike: Yup, you should want to be unconscious during something like that.
[Claire fumes, Kate cheers, and I flail.]

I... I just don't know what to say here.

Current Location: work
Current Mood: aggravated aggravated

5 purrs or Purr for me

I... have trouble finding the words to express the true 'WTF' of that. 'How would you like to be raped' is a trivia question now? With a 'right answer'? The 'Kate is the winner' completely doesn't surprise me in the slightest, unfortunately, but I'm still stunned otherwise. I'm really just mentally imagining it as a mental train wreck for everyone involved. Except maybe the person who came up with the question, although my guess is they came up with it while drunk. Is this station in the _habit_ of using the strange often offensive hypotheticals that people pose while they're drunk/high?

Yeah, the question in general threw me for a loop!

I have no idea who comes up with these questions, but one would wonder why they thought that question was at all appropriate. I've heard quite a few of these 'Would You Rather' things they do, and this is the first question that made me wtf.

I have to agree with the sheer amount of WTF-ery of that question. @_@

Come to think of it, I believe one of the other questions was:

Would you rather french kiss your grandfather or your best friend's father?

Not anywhere near as bad... but wow.

I know what to say. Let's knock Mike unconscious and have some big scary men rape him. Then he can tell us what he thinks of that!

It'll be fun! It's for trivia!
