Irritated Gamers Flood Target Australia’s Facebook Page After Grand Theft Auto V Ban

GG3 writes: "So, the news hit that retail franchise Target would remove Grand Theft Auto V from its Australian branch.

It’s not going down well with certain people.

One hour; over a dozen comments posted, chastising Target Australia for the decision."

The story is too old to be commented.

Exactly!! 50 Shades of Grey is advertised as "porn for women" and became a best seller, yet it portrayed a horribly emotionally abusive relationship as "romantic". The romantic interest was a man who stalked, intimidated, and isolated the female lead from her friends. He also forced her to sign a contract that allowed him to dictate what foods she ate, when he had sex with her, didn't let her use safe words during BDSM sex, and made sure he was the first man to take her virginity because he didn't want another man to have sex with her before he did. How the hell is that romantic?!

At least GTA acknowledges that killing prostitutes is illegal and wrong. 50 Shades of Grey portrays a controlling and abusive relationship as "romantic" and "sexy".

A woman wrote it. The rules are different (read hypocritical) when that's the case.

Good, I hope more people do the same stuff, especially getting a refund for the game and buying it somewhere else.

Lol, your country dictates what you can do and all you can do is cry on Facebook (until they restrict that) all because its a gunless country. Good luck restricting ourfreedom of speech; bang.
