Like, "Oh, the bank is raping me with these fees!"
Or a picture of a skater that I just saw where she's falling on her own skate and someone says, "Looks like you almost got skate raped."

A friend of miner on my Fb recently posted a controversial status and then added, "My comments section is about to get raped."

Luckily, someone else called him out before I did.

Yeah me neither. When I first heard uni people talking about Facebook rape I was completely taken aback.

I just cant imagine making a joke out of that word and it's connotations or using it so casually.

Thank you. That nonsense drives me nuts.

I guess I just am offended/bothered more when the word is used to just mean anything bad, instead of forceful penetration.

When men use it casually, I get annoyed.

I agree. Luckily, I haven't had to hear that expression IRL. I've only seen it on this message board.
Yes, both of those examples are gross and insensitive IMO.

I once said that I felt "emotionally raped" during a situation involving a betrayal. I hope that was not inappropriate. I have never been physically raped so I can't equate the feeling to anything else. But I imagine the gist is one of extreme violation?

I have also said cultures and geographic areas have been raped (of resources, of artifacts, of traditions, etc.) Is that wrong?

There is a common expression: "The Rape of Nanking."

Here's what it refers to:

fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

Co-wash: VO5 Volumizing
Poo: Giovanni 50:50
RO:TN, Nexxus Youth Renewal, Alba Coconut
LI: KCKT
PT: gelatin PT, ION EC
Stylers: Giovanni mousse, TIGI Curls Rock amplifier (a-cone), Curls Rock Strong Hold Mousse
Gels: SCC spray gel

This is a big one at my job. My male co workers always use terms like, "she/he was squalling like a raped cat" (or chicken) when referring to a female or male overreacting and screaming on the telephone. I was offended at first but now I just let it go in one ear and out the other. I'd be continuously angry if I didn't because dispatch humor is terribly offensive in general. But a great deal of it is trying to make yourself laugh through difficult situations. I know they actually find nothing funny or dismissive about rape itself.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I generally hear men using the term in more casual ways. Saying various peoples have been raped (of their land, culture, etc) isn't offensive to me in the same way.
No MAS.
