It's OK. I also still view hyperbole as a valid verbal tool. That a mass media culture prefers inarticulate use of the English language and interprets words only literally doesn't make your feelings invalid or your use of "rape" to express "extreme, unwanted violation of one's person", wrong, in my opinion.
