I know that when I mention this, I might come off as a frigid feminazi with no sense of humor, but I really need to say this.

I hate it how almost every time I am bullied or harassed, I am always told: "Oh come on, where's your sense of humor?" Yes, where is it indeed?

I hate it how evil people who are out to hurt and offend others always use the term "sense of humor" as a shield and weapon against others. Every time they try to hurt and offend someone, and succeed, and the victim expresses his or her distaste, they always defend themselves by saying; "Don't you have any sense of humor?"

I think the only reason they say so is because the bullies and men who commit sexual harassment are cowards. Of course, they are not afraid to act all tough, but they are afraid to admit their own faults and mistakes because they will be convicted if they admit, that's why they try to disguise their crimes as innocent jokes.

Because the bullies think this way; if you don't have exactly the same sense of humor as I do, you don't have any sense of humor at all (which is impossible because sense of humor is based on opinions and tastes like dress sense and music taste, you can't really say that if you don't have exactly the same taste as I do, you don't have any taste at all).
If you have a sense of humor and you like jokes, but you don't like only one joke, you don't have any sense of humor at all.
If you don't like being victimized, ridiculed, dehumanized and having your reputation ruined in the name of a joke, you don't have any sense of humor at all.

And also, if it's so easy to overcome school bullying and sexual harassment just by thinking that they are jokes, why do I have to take strong medication, go to expensive therapy, have regular nightmares and hear annoying voices and think of suicide?

Just because I don't have any sense of humor?

God, I hate men. I hate them so much.
