    Hmmm, I am not a gamer so I cannot comment from that perspective, but this surely can't be a good thing. :(

    The widely popular "Grand Theft Auto" video-game series lets players get away with a wide range of virtual crimes, including looting and murder. But that's not enough mayhem for some players, who are rewriting its code to add another crime: rape.

    In a disturbing new trend, "Grand Theft Auto V" gamers are virtually raping the avatars controlled by other people playing online. They then post videos of their exploits on YouTube.

    The virtual rapists modify the game's code to let them do things they otherwise couldn't. They choose a naked or pantless man as their character, lock him to another player and play an animation that thrusts his pelvis back and forth.

    ? this is pretty tame.

    You guys have probably never seen the skyrim adult modding community then. It is not for the faint of heart. Seriously, its like 4 chan except with better programing skills, and knows how to work with blender.

    Now that's lame of you. Srsly, it's just trolling. It is not a real rape, it's just the game. I'm no rapist, but I would love to do such thing in GTAO (if I ever played it) just for the sake of trolling. So what? Am I evil? IMHO it's awesome, another way to troll some people and watch them have some butthurt (and their avatars, then it's literally a butthurt). When did Anons become to protest lulz?

    Yeah lame yup, so lame meets retarded. Nice ta meet ya AB :rolleyes: Reread the first line I said I do not game and then posed a question to those who do. when did anons become illiterate.

    It is lame, because you baww about guys making a mockery of other people on the online game. I would agree with you, if it was CP - then it would suck. But it's not. We don't protest Call of Duty, because people kill each other there. Why would we protest rape in virtual world, while it's not CP?

    What is your problem? it may have escaped your notice we have a sub forum called no rape. Is your intellectual capacity so impaired you cannot understand, I am inviting a conversation from gamers to discuss this as it potentially bears relevance to the topic of rape culture.
  12. White Tara Global Moderator

    Where am I baaawing precisely?
  13. Anonymous Member

    Bolded it for you. In my book, it is bawwing. Or maybe I used wrong word. I mean, you lack of distance from this. In other words, take a simple online joke too seriously.

    But what is a rape culture? When I hear this, I think of something like "condoning rape". In the case of GTAO rape, such thing does not occur. People don't kill each other, because they saw it in the game. Same with rape. Of course, there were cases when people addicted to games killed someone because game crashed or their father found himself a new bitch and didn't give a fuck about 12-years old son, and just bough him a real gun (two cases I heard of), but content of the game itself was never a reason to do such thing. So what does raping in GTAO matter?

    The first bolded bit is a question, a query asked honestly and openly to others with more experience in the gaming world. The second bolded bit is part of the quoted article. The article was quoted to stimulate discussion about this topic. Quoting an article does notnecessarily suggest that one agrees with the article, more that it should be considered as a stimulus to conversation.

    Rape culture is the sad state of affairs where the world has somehow come to accept rape as merely another trial and tribulation of life. Meh rape shrug. Thats what this Subforum seeks to address and potentially reverse even at the lowest level.

    Again, I asked those with more experience to offer a gamers perspective to how online rape should be viewed with regards the consolidation of rape culture in society.

    More food for thought have you ever heard of 'triggers' for rape victims?

    I'm a gamer, but never played GTAO. But IMO it's just an internet joke, just like Habbo Hotel raids, and shouldn't be treated too seriously. Besides, GTA has PEGI 18, so if a child gains access to it, it's their or their parents' fault. Game developers don't take responsibility for game's content's influence (if any) on players, because they do their job printing warnings on boxes with the game. Secondly, every mentally healthy human easily differentiates play from real world. It is literally impossible for a human with working brain to take virtual violence as seriously as real violence.

    And about rape culture: it's existence is not a result of playing violent games, but of it's commonness in the real world, of the fact that rapists often get away with it, and of stupid laws. You won't kill or even beat up a guy who has raped your sister, because you'd be thrown in prison. So it's not games what's to blame, but corrupt system. Also, in games like GTA, people nlow up tens of cars, kill hundreds of cops, murder thousands of civilians, but it doesn't affect their compassion. If they see someone killing a cop, a civilian or blowing up a car, they won't shrug and say "pfff seen it hundred times in GTA", so game's content is not the cause.

    If I were a game developer/book writer/film director, I would not hesitate to implement rape scenes, if it was for the sake of story. And as for this particular case, where rape was not implemented by developers, but by hackers, my opinion is that it's just funny. I would do the same and have a lot of lulz, and if my character was raped in the game, in which it was impossible, i'd be amused and impressed. It can't do any real harm, because, ideally, GTAO is played by adults.

    Also, I appreciate people's skill, creativity and humour, because it keeps world interesting.

    Couldn't agree more thank you for broadening my understanding from a gamers viewpoint. I am dead set against supressing creativity. I did however, having read this article think it warranted discussion in relation to rape culture, mayhaps it acts as an innoculation of people against the realities of rape? dunno.

    I get that you view it as humourous, and most likely one would have to be involved in gaming to understand the cut and thrust of gamer culture humour. from the perspective of a rape victim it could potentially be quite a confronting scenario though.
  17. White Tara Global Moderator

    Please do not misunderstand, I do not suggest that game culture is responsible for rape culture or any other violence in the real world. I am merely questioning how its existence relates to a real world problem of rape culture. Relax I am in no way anti gamer. I just have no frame of reference because I have not yet entered into that world. :)

    My issue with it, is if a guy can hack into the game to do rape, then what else has been hacked into the game? Are they seeing what your kinnect is seeing? have they gained your credit card information from your psn account?

    As for rape culture, you should read Bryan Sykes saxxons vikings and celts. In that book, he mentions something quite disturbing: that a lot of people who believe to be descended from warlords, and kings, ARE, due to the whole practice of killing the men, and raping the women, that was a somewhat common in the ancient worl. Look at Mongolia for example.

    so perhaps there is not a rape culture, but a rape gene?

    My qualms about a rape culture, is rape is illegal. if it was cultural acceptable, it would not be illegal. Perhaps what we mistake for rape culture is other culture's cronyism, and the fact that they are overvalued in our society. Examples of this are :stubinville's rapeists being allowed back on the team, bankers never getting sent to jail, politicians never getting sent to jail.

    So its not that we accept rape, its that we have people that we make above the law. That is the real problem.

    I am well aware of the uselessness of kinnect. no one asked for it. It was a stupid attempt to steal sales from the wiii, and it failed. but the security question is very important, as people spend a stupid amount on video games, and the weakest link in security is usually what gets penetrated(a rape of your wallet, in other words).That is the biggest concern. Especially since more and more games have god damn micro transactions in them, and ask for credit card information.

    Consumer protection, is the best way to put the 1% in their place. Yet the fucktards at occupy have yet to realize this. This has worked in the past with the establishment of the FDA. The banking issues, the car recalls, the abuses for profits, all of those are consumer protection issues, and when consumer protection is violated, imagine that, you have super rich minority appearing.

    c:/end derail.

    I just raped. So sad.

    On the possibility of a 'rape or violence gene' ' I truly hope not. Darwinian injustice at its finest leaves little room for hope for humanity.
  23. Anonymous Member

    Believing in the decisive power of genes, evolution or Darwin (as much as I love this guy for explaining why humans are humans and pissing off religions) is lame. You know, I'm just waiting when some rapist, murderer or pedophile says on court "it was not me, it was my genes!". WE decide what we do, not our fucking chromosomes! So don't lose hope for humanity. Humans have equal... word... (stealth Google Translate checkup) tendency (how could I have forget this word? nvm) to do both good and evil and it's our decisions and our doings what decides which side takes advantage.

    So, the way to mock our rape/murder/whateverevilisleft genes is be good and show people they could too. And protest (Scientology) or war (jihadists) those who just won't.

  24. if you're going to spend hours cracking a game like GTA just to make a rape animation - you're fucked in the head.

    if you think access to women is a right of access for any "alpha male" just because you read a few books on pick-up artists and you believe all that shit you read online about feminists trying to take your porn away - you're fucked in the head.

    if you think the internet grants you auto access to anybody's intimate life, and "fuck em if they can't take a joke" - guess what, yep - you're fucked in the head.

    If you feel you have to stand up and defend a rape plugin for a game, because you feel so "oppressed" as a guy now that plenty of women are better than you at your best stuff - you have mental problems my friend.

    You're fucked in the head.

    Normalizing rape as a "funny" thing will never happen.
    It happened for a while, but that was then. Deal with it bitches.
  25. So what are you going to do about the jihadist scientologists then, eh wise guy?

    They don't exist.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Just because its in a video game, does not mean people will do it in real life. In fact, we are starting to see hyper sensitivity in some gamers: they are MORE sensitive, offended, and exhibit a bigger emotional response to real world violence then those that do not play as much video games.Its whey you will get ban hammered if you post a video on a game forum about real life violence.

    Also keep in mind that there are an estimated 700 million gamers across the world. That is a huge amount of the world population, yet we are seeing a downward trend in violence in first world countries.
