Nobody can stop me doing dongle jokes.

That is what the founding fathers wanted.

I hate that "rape" has turned into this slang for "I beat you in a game." It's such a heinous and hateful crime.

And aggravated rape is a constantly used joke inHyperdimension Neptunia V. It's sad how socially entitled society feels to their own specific ideals and ignorance.

People say "you got murdered that round" as well. Funny how we don't have people asking for that to stop because murder, well that doesn't have deep emotion effects on victims. They're just dead.

Most games involve murdering thousands of faceless online opponents. The word describes the action on screen. Nothing about "rape" describes what's happening on screen when you get a headshot or a knife kill.

What armycore said. Before it had anything to do with games, it was also used in the military to mean getting royally screwed.

... oh, would you look at that? A connection: getting screwed, f***ed (over), raped. None of them pleasant. All of them have more than just their original meaning. Many words and phrases do.

What is it about gaming that suddenly makes the rules no longer apply? Nobody bats an eye any other time, but as soon as it pops up in gaming...

I'm not referring to what you do in a game, I'm referring to when people say it when they're trash talking. And I have been told that I am being murdered in a game that had no killing.

A whole lot of stupid right there.

Nation of pussies. One day even words like jerk will be punishable by law and you will be sued for calling someone fat. Stop crying and ruining it for the rest of us. Rape. Rape. Its just a word. Feminazis shut up.
