Did any publication out there mention KiteTale's "More than a damsen in a dress" video? I actually didn't know of its existence until the recent controvesry even though has been up for a year now.

Klepeck did.

Unlike violence, where crime rates have gone down, sexual harassment is still a huge problem that hasn't gone away over time so it should be looked at differently.

Incidence of forcible rape is down by better than a third, including attempts.

It was big enough to be noticed in 2006.

Of course, most Americans believe that crime is getting worse. Oh well, they've always liked fear.

I don't think rape should be the baseline no one is really worried that video games lead to sexual violence. Video games don't portray and reward rape. They are accused of promoting sexual objectification and fostering an unwelcoming environment for women.

I think it's odd how gamers fought tooth and nail against the idea that video games made people violent, but when someone says they make people sexist everyone just accepts it as fact.

There has been correlative evidence that exposure to sexism in video games makes the player more tolerate of sexism in real life.

@yukoasho: None of that is true. Modern feminism has given us the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, expansion of contraceptive care and abortion rights, rape prevention on college campuses, maternity and paternity leave. I suspect you have a very skewed view of what feminism is in the real world. People on the internet tend to see the far fringes of the movement and teenagers on tumblr who are exploring their political identities.

I still cannot understand your hard on for Xenoblade. It is just Monster Hunter with a plot. I played it for 100 hours and I cannot recall a single thing about it except how Britishy everyone pronounced "Monaaado."

Anyway, thanks for these many years of comics Mento. If you ever fall off the CBSi premium gravy train, I got your back.

My eternal thanks once again to @omghisam, who was also kind enough to give me a copy of Shovel Knight recently too. (I suspect he might be a secret billionaire, or maybe this is all coursework for training to become a social worker.)

Hey there is nothing wrong with one man paying to read about another man indulge in digital entertainment. Look, I haven't done anything wrong, cop. Why don't you take a hike, cop. Thanks for Ziggys, Mento.
