Lady Parts Nails the Whole ‘Rape as Character Development’ Problem [Video]

We think we're fans of Lady Parts.

Are you a woman who rolls her eyes, groans, and feels the need to hurl sharp objects at people who make rape jokes? The Lady Parts team feels you.

In episode one of Lady Parts (the segment is called “Rape Joke”), watch as an actress has to deal with a “rape character development” scene a writer spontaneously pens, an arrogant actor, and a clueless director. If you like it, you can catch more of Lady Parts on Youtube. Thanks to Bust for posting.
