"Rapelay" - Raping Women in Virtual Reality

This is sickening. Illusion, a Japanese video game producer, has developed "Rapelay" - the video game where you stalk and rape victims.

The Belfast Telegraph reports:

One website review describes "tears glistening in the young girl's eyes" as she is attacked in graphic detail.

Players begin the game by stalking a mother on a subway station before violently raping her. They then move on to attack her two daughters described as virgin schoolgirls.

Players are also allowed to enter 'freeform mode' where they can rape any woman and get other male game characters to join the attacks.

I am so disgusted by this - I can hardly believe anyone would produce, let alone purchase, a game like this. Video game simulation is used by the U.S. military because it allows people to practice killing and helps to emotionally detach a soldier from acts of war. If that strategy works for the military, imagine what this rape game is teaching the men who play it.
