Why Are Women Getting Raped in Video Games?

A mysterious assailant known as DEEPER_IN_DA_BUTT has hacked the video game Grand Theft Auto V in order to sexually terrorize fellow online players. “He has his pants down at all times and can butt rape you,” one reported on Reddit. “You cannot kill him and there is nothing you can do about it. Worse, when he’s done, you are stuck doing strip dances.” Plenty of similar attacks have been proudly documented on YouTube, leading The Huffington Post to declare this week that modifying video games in order to rape other players is “a disturbing new trend.”

What the heck?

Why put "women" in the title than talk about how ALL players are getting "raped" in the article?

All players are but this story is obviously click bait. Surprise it's not coming from Kotaku.

"The problem...." This is just a non issue. And this is coming from a woman who has played online since the days of Doom. (The Author prob has no idea what that even is) Try something like actual war, genocide, or living in a third world country. A fantasy simulation, (weather by choice or not) is just a non issue.

Sorry to burst your bubble.

Right??? There are so many violations of basic human dignity going on throughout the REAL world, and yet THIS is what we are meant to find disturbing?

As a man I feel the title is a bit sexist. That's right I flipped the switch on em!! Dudes out here in the streets of Los Santos also gettin their butts busted, and I don't mean by cops.

"After Correa’s screen went dark, the two men made moaning noises at her over her headset while she yelled at them."

What the f*** (Excuse my language)but damn it man. Sometimes I wish I could reach thru the screen and bitch slap the headsets off some of these guys. Gamers sending death threats to deveolpers, calling them w****s and what-not, portraying RAPE online with graphic mods and moaning and groaning into the mic. Come on.
Having people look at us gamers like were all twisted and immature individuals.

Also wasn't a good Idea for her to call them "sick puppies"

Weird title

Sensationalist title. A title meant to get social warriors riled.

Include women in the title just to get hits, then goes on to talk about how all players get raped :/
