Can a joke really be offensive?

This is something I battle all the time.  When the mere mention of a subject is deemed offensive rather than its purpose to advance a discussion.  As a journalist I am often asked “how can you ask such a thing,” and as a teacher there are some mentions not to be made for fear of being misunderstood. 

Read this and let me know what you think.
