Does anyone else's partner make jokes pertaining to SA (not theirs) or find jokes about SA funny from time to time? Eg- my partner found this funny: *possible trigger* http://joyreactor.com/post/626471

My partner disclosed to me without details about his SA ~8 years ago. After the births of our children I've become more sensitive to jokes about SA and only recently said that the jokes make me sad/uncomfortable. He still makes them or shares them with me on occasion, maybe one every few months, if that.

He's not in therapy for the SA (that's a whole different issue), but I wonder if any other partners experience this, too? I wonder if it is trying to normalize what happened or just a guy finding a comic funny or taking the opportunity to make the same joke someone who didnt experience SA would.
