This is in reference to a discussion about a really incredibly gross tabletop game with a focus on rape.

I saw a link to this on Twitter, and I knew it was going to be something I wouldn’t enjoy reading, but… wow.

So, the idea that people are making games where your character being able to commit rape is framed as a neutral-to-positive feature is awful but not really suprising. What gets me is the bit where they turned PTSD into a game mechanic. It paralyzes a character for one round.

I’m not saying there’s any rational justification for why I should think that’s the worst part. But I do. Scum of the earth, right there.
