Hey I just got harrassed while playing Counter Strike Source. Some guy called me a f***** and some other guy told me that he was going to kill me. Guys I'm so scared please I need-


-some advice guys please help I'M BEING MURDERED ONLINE EEEEEEEEEEEEEK!

This is what basically these morons are doing at the moment. First Anita Sarkeesian (who paused posting messages about her getting death threats on twitter to tell people to support her by donations) and now this. Professional victimhood must be paying really good nowadays...

I miss the good old days of game magazines and simple internet forums where people only talked about games.

Last time I checked Murder carries a stronger penalty than rape... I have been told I was going to be murdered "Im going to find you a F'ing Kill you for real!" and then that person showed me how by killing me virtually... Pretty much par for the course online.

All the sounds were there I was hearing that person murder my virtual character that I was connected to.

But back in reality I lost the game turned my console off and went out for some Indian food for dinner... mmmmm I love Indian food.

What about my civil rights? I get call the N word daily!.. so does my white friends.. THE MADNESS MUST STOP!
I have also been called noob, I'm not sure what that means but I feel attacked.

You know whats funny.Lately people have been saying women are staring to play games more and more statistically.. I wonder how that lines up statistically with the increase in these types of claims lately...

Virtual rape? What the hell does that even mean? It's not possible to virtually rape someone.

viperman2402481d ago

I just virtually raped you, want to get me dinner now?

Blacktric2481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

And you didn't even bought him a drink beforehand. How rude.

By the way; the virtual rape thing she's talking about is what some modders are doing in GTA Online for the past few weeks. They can lock your character and theirs in an animation, which is used in a singleplayer mission where you get to peep on a former child star (nod to Miley Cyrus probably) having sex with some guy in a garden, that you cannot get out of.

And no, they're not doing it to females only, so this is, once again, a non-issue cocked up by someone who wants to get famous by yelling about something that's laughably petty on an ignorant televison channel.

Slap in the face of real rape victims. Virtual rape? Give me a break, just disconnect.

Gh05t2481d ago

EXACTLY want to know the difference between real rape and virtual rape... YOU CAN STOP BEING VIRTUALLY RAPED!
Power off the monitor/disconnect the internet bam done INSTANTLY.

viperman2402481d ago


But we can go further; mental rape.

I wont delve deeper into that or joke about it. If I do these glass skinned feminist or whatever they want to call themselves. They might use it as ammo.

But mental rape, and virtual rape are one in the same, it's all in the mind. Why would anyone feel "triggered" or threatened or feel harassed is beyond me.

Dee_912481d ago

They are talking about the " hack" in gta V online where hackers can disable your character and rape it... of course they are blowing it way out of proportion though..

iamnsuperman2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

Is saying "I am virtually raping you as I type this" harassment? Is is not just pointing out the lunacy in the statement about how she doesn't feel safe online. I am not saying she didn't get harassed (on the Internet you can get harassed for all random type of things) but I am getting a different vibe from that tweet. What she said didn't make sense (though I need to see the whole video and not that snippet). In GTA I can wak someone to death. Does she not feel safe because of that too or is it just the rape thing?

annoyedgamer2481d ago

Why did you approve it then? I want to report this but I am afraid I will get banned for it.

WilliamUsher2481d ago

Because it's called free-speech.

They're allowed to say it, but you can choose whether or not you want to read it.

He's doing the opposite of what they're doing during this media blackout on the whole corrupt journalism thing.

Supporting unfavorable opinions by at least allowing them to be shared keeps communication going.

Is that even technically possible even if someone mods a game to allow avatars raping each other in a pvp scenario wouldn't it require both players to have the mod installed in order for it to happen?... if someone installs a rape mod then that's consent
