appztetra It's probably okay for me, I don't like rape genre anyway, but we will have a bloodfest if they stopped creating vn's :)

Unregistered The problem lies elsewhere, you can't solve it with censorship.

Too bad your family(?) member got raped. But if you want my inner response, it's just "Too bad."; I can sympathize, but ultimately, it's not of a concern of mine. Really, why should it?

And I am not fan or rape or anything, but what will go next? Ban violence? Ban murder in fiction? Ban everything bad? My uncle was killed by train, should we ban trains? This ends nowhere.

Even games that glorify rape, should STAY as they are. Proof of that someone in interested in them is there since they sold (if they didn't they wouldn't be made).

Now what if I took your enjoyment away? Would you be happy about it? And it doesn't matter what was enjoyment about, by me playing rapelay, no one is getting hurt in any way! If I go psycho and rape people, then yes I am responsible. It is my fault, not anyone else.

Moreover, why is anyone even angry at rape games, when there are THOUSAND games glorifying MURDER or even mass murder (GTA, anyone?) and hardly anyone care? In my book, rape is pretty low compared to murder, and it should be like that! But why is everyone apeshit about rape? You can say, it is just game, it is just fiction? But somehow, same thing doesn't magically apply to rape? Why? I don't get it...

I understand where you are coming from. Rape is a terrible crime that affects a person for the rest of their life. For less rape to happen, I think schools should give more in-depth sex ed about how rape can hurt an individual. This could definitely help. However, it should be noted that normal people don't just go out and rape someone because they are lonely or played an eroge. (even the people that love "dark eroge" usually say only an insane person would commit the acts they see in eroge) It takes either someone that's highly disturbed or someone that has rage for their victims. Eroge won't change that.

This statement is ridiculous, poorly cited and inherently hypocritical. I fail to see why I should have to add meaningless flavour text in order to pad my statement out to 50 words* when I could just as easily say 'no'.

*50 words, as counted by OpenOffice, naturally including this footnote

Brilliant paragraph. Flawless usage of the English language. Forget the replies with actual thought put into them, this is Pulitzer material. Enerccio4Prez.

In fact I do believe that violence of all kinds over-saturates today’s media and has been in many cases glorified. Do I agree with this? No. But that is a separate subject. A ‘well we glorify murder in the media, why not rape and incest?’ argument is the fundamentally flawed juxtaposition of two separate issues (i.e. arguing apples and oranges - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apples_and_oranges).

As to why rape and incest should be censored, let me ask you some questions. Have you been raped? Do you understand the psychological trauma inflicted on victims of rape? If another man raped you and you read something which said rape victims brought it on themselves, wanted to be raped or that it was to some extent okay given the circumstances how would you feel? Think of the victims, or their families; how are they supposed to feel when they see an image or piece of writing glorifying rape or incest?

I’m not talking about taking an iron wall approach to censorship. I’m arguing only about censoring media that glorifies rape and incest. I am not talking about a censorship of the topics themselves, merely of media which vindicates/idolises the cruel practice of raping another human being.

In my opinion it would send a message to rapists and would-be rapists that civilised society will not tolerate inhumanity towards each other. It would send a message to victims that it is never their fault and that society condemns such acts committed against them. That rape is never okay and never justifiable.

Furthermore to the poster of “So you would rather that I rape real life people, than playing rape visual novels. Good idea!”, I’ll say the following. No. I would rather you see a professional in the form of a psychologist/physiatrist, before I see another person ruined by rape/incest/sexual violence. If after that you still can’t control the urge to destroy another human being, well I just hope fate does humanity a favour and you slip on some soap hitting the floor neck first.

I'm playing that at the moment, actually. Good game. Although this could actually apply to most 寝取られ titles.

You can defend both, or choose neither, if "rape glorification" games were banned, rape in other works would also be effected.

From the linked article, a great way of saying that

The Law is a blunt instrument. It's not a scalpel. It's a club. If there is something you consider indefensible, and there is something you consider defensible, and the same laws can take them both out, you are going to find yourself defending the indefensible.

Also, I am currently playing Sengoku Rance, it glorifies rape at times, however it is also an awesome game. This game how ever is not going to turn anyone into a rapist. Do you feel that there is a problem with people playing this game? I for one would not be happy if games such as this were banned because specific groups of people, who wouldn't play it anyway, lie or mislead governments into saying that it's very existence is harmful.
