I've had an idea for a cartoon, but I don't know if it's appropriate.

Panel 1: Guy sitting in cinema, says: "I'm really looking forward to this new Star Wars sequel..."

Panel 2: (on screen) Jar Jar Binks in Jedi uniform says: "Deesa no se droidsa yousa be lookin for"

Panel 3: Guy screams in agony "Stop raping my childhood, J.J. Abrams!!!"

If it's in bad taste, what could the final line be replaced with?

I would think nearly any other gerund than "raping."

"Stop ruining my childhood memories..."

"Stop screwing with..."

"Stop messing with..."

I wouldn't get up in arms about it, myself, but there are much better words to use in the first place.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

It's not so much that it's in bad taste. It's just not funny.

I don't understand why that's funny. I also don't think generally using the term "raping" for "messing up" is a great idea.

I think the correct phrasing would be "Stop touching my childhood in inappropriate places."

Yes it is in bad taste (and not funny to boot).

How about Stop Obamacaring my child hood (as it must be Obama's fault in some one (this is RSP))?

Or Stop George Lucasing my child hood?

Or

Who gives a shit, it's not SF?

I said it wasn't funny. Why do you say the words that agree with me in an arrangement that says you don't. I'm confused.

I'd use any other word than rape or synonym for it.

What's funny for few is tepid for most and a horrifying flashback giver for far too many.

You can't put a candy coating on shit and tell people to focus on the candy as they roll that turd around in their mouth.

Honestly, that's not a bad final line. Makes the comic work on multiple levels.

I'm willing to swallow bad taste if the aftereffect is worth it. But I'm not seeing the funny here. Feel free to convince me otherwise.

I'm not offended, but I'm also not a big fan of "raping" in this kind of context. Personally, I'd replace it with "defiling".

In candor, yours works better as a punchline. But that's at the core of what I don't like -- that the idea of a childhood, bent over and raped, tear-streaming, is what's funny.

These threads help.

The other day someone used 'raped' in the context of losing EVE ships. I spoke up about it.

It's not so much that it's in bad taste. It's just not funny.

The joke is on the guy for equating childhood rape with watching a movie.

It's not a joke about how horrible modern Star Wars films are, because who gives a shit?

I was wondering if it were possible to retain that meaning without using the word "rape".

I think I'm going with "defile", as Lawson suggested.
