Default Equality Now: “Games Are Extreme Pornography”

I bring you yet again a lovely article from the infamous femnazi group "Equality Now" posted on SC.

Quote:
“Videogames are not art. They are extreme pornography,” rants the UK leader of Equality Now in response to the notion that adult themes should be allowed in games.

Evidently still not done ignoring the plight of women under Islam in favour of promoting obscure titles such as Rapelay, Equality Now’s London head Jacqueline Hunt launches into the kind of moralist tirade which has already seen most fetish pornography banned in the UK, this time writing for a top leftist rag:
Quote:
My organisation, Equality Now, has heard a lot from the fans of some of these games.

We highlighted the game RapeLay, produced in Japan, as one example of many that promote violence against women. In RapeLay the player manipulates an onscreen ***** to simulate rape of a woman and her young daughters over and over again.

Our international campaign called on the Japanese government to ban games that promote sexual violence against women and girls. Fans of these games were outraged.

They asked us why we were targeting RapeLay when, they said, it was mild compared to similar available games. In Japan there is a whole genre of extreme pornography, known as hentai, which takes in cartoons and comic books as well as videogames. Imagery includes women and girls being molested, stalked and gang-raped.

We received hundreds of emails from around the world, many calling for our own rape and murder. “By the way, I played RapeLay (doing the 13-year-old was best)”, said one, referring to the pre-pubescent girl whom players “rape” in the game.
Incidentally, the individual responsible for the now widely quoted “doing the 13-year-old was best” quip was a Sankaku Complex reader who privately admitted he was merely trolling – a complete ignorance of even the basics of Internet culture on the part of Equality Now (perhaps not surprising considering their inability to accept any culture other than that of their own moral hysteria) seems to have caused them a great deal of trouble recently when they were caught lying about misquoted Sankaku Complex comments.
Quote:
… If games such as RapeLay can now be classified as art, maybe the popular media promotion of sexual violence against women is so normalised that we don’t even pay attention any more. Does “killing” a prostituted woman in Grand Theft Auto just reconfirm to a gamer the “lesser value” of women in prostitution generally?

Certainly the UN’s women’s committee believes that gender stereotypes, including those of women as sex objects, and gender-based discriminatory attitudes, contribute to violence against women.

Will the players of RapeLay act on their threats towards us? It’s just a game, don’t threaten our free speech, say the fans who tell us to shut up or else.
Ironic words indeed, coming from the very people actively trying to force police in other countries to lock people up for exercising their own freedom of expression.

The inconvenient truth that sexual violence against women (for that matter, any kind of violence against anyone) is rare in Japan, and vigorously prosecuted when it does occur, whilst many western nations enjoy rates of all kinds of crime several orders of magnitude above those in Japan, seems to be something no feminist dares address.

Instead it appears they prefer the security of appeals to emotion and ignorance, which it seems groups such as Equality Now are in no short supply of…

i agree with this rhetorical question
if anything, prostitutes are better than non-prostitutes

They need to do a survey and find out how many rapists actually played rapelay.
And if they got to play it would they still commit rape crime (Maybe it helps reduce rape cases). >.<

I think iz better they raped the virtual world then actually rape in real life. They don't go to jail and no one gets hurt, iz win win.

I love how they think rape in media aimed towards men is a new thing. Granted, I do understand what they're saying and agree to some extent, It's not hard to find a pornographic video with simulated rape in it. The only difference, these arent even real people acting it out.

(Although, i will never understand the need to rape anything in anywhere, virtural or real life)

These articles are always a treat, thanks for posting them. This particular feminist group is huddled into their own ignorance so much it's becoming a rather large spectacle in itself.

There's a lot I could say but I'll just comment on the art quip. Video games are an art in the same sense that everything else is an art. Not everyone is called a good artist and not every video game upholds to being an art form.


O->--< Behold my stick figure, he is art but in the loosest sense.

The company that made the game was already prosecuted and distribution of the game has diminished. This piece of news couldn't be anymore useless unless reading about criticism against feminist and their values increases your macho ego.

I wonder if it is because of this but eroge now has a disclaimer.

Quote:
Declaration

This is a declaration made with the consensus of all the characters that appear in this story.

All the characters appearing in this game have gone through special training and all actions carried out are done on the basis of mutual agreement.

Even if you’re a inhuman person who believes that fictional characters in creative works do not have human rights, please do not ignore this.

We also thank all the kind people who see a character in the story saying phrases such as “help me” and take it as a real call for help.

However, even though you are worrying for the characters in the story, these are all lines spoken from a script.

They are not saying all this from the bottom of their hearts. We are sorry that they have put in so much effort into their acting that some people will confuse it as something that is really happening.

This game is a fictional story.

Do they really have that disclaimer? That's interesting.

The same reason why they put unnecessary sexy/sex scenes in movies.

I’ve recently learnt something that surprised me

Listening Suigen Ninja:
What is it?

Surprised Suigen Ninja:
We, fictional characters, apparently have human rights.

Listening Suigen Ninja:
Huh?

Surprised Suigen Ninja:
There are apparently some special people that will get angry and show sympathy for us if we get raped. And they’ll start lobbying for us too.

Listening Suigen Ninja:
Wow, we even can’t do anything ourselves without a creator or a player but we have human rights

Surprised Suigen Ninja:
Surprising isn’t it?

Listening Suigen Ninja:
Yeah. But since they acknowledge that we have human rights, I wonder if they’ll acknowledge that we have the right to vote too. Our creators will work hard to do some political manipulation.

Surprised Suigen Ninja:
We can’t be greedy. But well, since we have human rights we might as well suggest it.

Listening Suigen Ninja:
You’re right

Surprised Suigen Ninja:
We’re doing as we please. Please stop taking unneccessary actions.
Bravo game company! Show 'em who's boss!
