The term rape is increasingly being used out of the normal context on an everyday basis.
‘Fraping’, [Facebook raping] is just one example of how modern culture has trivialised a devastating and traumatic event that is a reality for thousands of women.
In 2009/2010 almost 14,000 women in the UK reported being raped to the police.

The tag line on the card;

If this is tasteless and crass, what is it when you liken someone putting an unwanted comment on facebook to being sexually assaulted?
Completely different or a little bit the same?
Tell me what you think.
