sorry, actual women! we’ll care about violence against you if you ever have the balloon titties of virtual women.

So, Amazon was selling some horrific Japanese rape simulation game, a shocked MP wagged his finger in Parliament, and now you can only buy it from several hundred other retailers. Hoo-fucking-ray.

Here’s the thing: Is this game digusting; do I have nothing but naked, burning hatred for the people who make it; would finding out my boyfriend played it lead to summary, no-second-chance, dumping? Yes, yes, and yes.

But this game is not the cause of violence against women, it’s the result of such violence being largely normalized and rampaging unchecked. And before Parliament starts clutching their pearls over games like this, maybe they should do something about the abysmally low conviction rate of rape in their country (less than 6%).

But I guess there isn’t as much publicity or political upward mobility in getting upset over actual women being raped. There’s no quick fix; instead it would require that men stop treating women as less than full members of the human race. Can’t have that, none of them will vote for me ever again!
