my lovely ex is a teacher, she is against all kids playing "killer" type games. i suppose she has a point, some kids may not know the difference between reality + virtual reality.

I am glad you said “some kids”. Everyone is different, but these moron teachers want to put a blanket policy on everyone. Some kids don’t like video games and would rather be outside playing baseball, some kids watch TV, and some kids do play video games. But if you take out the video games would these kids be the same way? I bet they would and these teachers would blame that external problem.

Alot of younger teachers probably grew up with video games so meh
