What Is This World Coming To?

I am absolutely appalled by what I've just read:


What kind of sick and twisted individual would want ANY part of this? There's my answer- a sick and twisted one. How could this be a game? I am actually having trouble forming my words right now, because of how disturbed I am.

Has anyone else heard about this? I realize violence in video games is nothing new, but this takes things to a whole new level. It's almost like consumers are so so so satisfied by over-the-top technology and animation, that the manufacturers and developers have to come up with things like this to keep the attention of the virtual gaming culture.

I suppose I should not be surprised, women have been exploited for thousands of years, why should it stop now? In my opinion, rape has little to do with desire, it's about hatred directed at women.

Everything seems excessive these days; music, television, movies....people of all ages are constantly being bombarded with images and notions of immediate gratification and needful things. I can now see how the trend is leading to products like these. Disgusting.

I'm flat out sickened by this. Ya Allah, All Knowing, All Seeing, save us.

I had no idea about this! Everytime I read something that is the most shocking yet... after a few articles then along comes yet another crazy thing! This is sickening and disgusting. The makers of this game have mental problems thinking its perfectly okay to create a game like this and promote such actions!

Assalam-alaikam Sis,
I had no idea something like this would be allowed. What does it say about a society when they accept this, even if they dissapprove - it shows a real sickness. Also what does it say about the real state of many peoples minds - is it safe for women with such people around? Ameen to your dua.

LOL i had to laugh because it is actually quite 'normal' in japan who has a very high rate of sexual harrasment and rape. Its pretty sick, but that's what jahiliyah means - something we DONT want to end up duing...
