I get the "not on my watch" meme, but I fail to see the humour in making a "joke" of sexual harassment.
The "joke" isn't centred on the sexual harassment; it's the play on words that forms the joke here. Presumably you have no issue with someone resorting to physical violence to defend someone against an alleged assault?

Substitute "bullying a little guy" for sexually harassing a girl if it makes you feel better. Same joke.

And I fail to see the humour in making a joke of religious discrimination. The joke, as mentioned, is not the sexual harassment but the internet meme, many jokes use background that would be considered unpleasant but the jokes aren't about the background.

Presumably you've heard the one about the English POW in the second world war who had to have his right leg amputated, he asked the guard to have it posted to his family in the UK so it could be buried with his family, later he had to have the left leg amputated and made the same request. When he eventually had to have his left arm amputated the guard refused, when the POW asked why the guard said, "the commandant thinks you are trying to escape," in your best Sergeant Schulz accent of course.

So it's got amputation, prisoner of war, funny German stereotypical accents etc. The thing is, just because a joke contains some common themes and current social problems should it be banned as "not funny"?

As I said I didn't find the religious posting a little way up the thread particularly funny.

No jokes are funny.

The ones that are funny without substance are just sad.

To qualify as a funny picture it has to not be funny, or no one will like it.

Except this one....

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.
