Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

If this is this where society is heading ... I want no part of it. To be further discouraged, Amazon only banned the game* AFTER people expressed outrage.
"We determined that we did not want to be selling this particular item," a spokeswoman said.
Baloney Amazon, you only pulled it once you realized this was going to cause a huge media backlash if you didn't.

The sad thing is that this game has been out since 2006, and we're only hearing about it now. There is an extremely seedy element to society, one that we're not often privy to. Women and children kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery? It happens more than we'd like to think. Abhorrent software such as the crud linked above? Obviously it exists, lurking just underneath the scum of the stagnant pool we call our society.

Isn't it time we had enough of such stuff, stood up, and demanded an end to it?

*I'm not even going to provide details here, go check out the link ... I don't want any traffic at my site for any idiots who are even considering this game.

I'm concerned about who is producing this crap but I'm also more concerned with who is buying this thing. I mean is this game making its way into every tech-savy sexual predator's collection. This is really F'ed up!

You got it. As someone said over at the Intersection: The other issue with a game like this is that it appears that every rapist goes through an escalation process, mimicked in the game by the forced fondling prior to the rape. It seems to me fairly obvious that this game would serve as that escalation process. No “normal” man wants to rape. Therefore, anyone who buys this game already has rape fantasies that could escalate.

That is fucking disgusting and yeah, who in the hell would want to play this game? Who could even write this game or test this game? If you want to simulate raping women and young girls, something is seriously, seriously wrong. That is twisted.
