It’s called “Mass Effect” and it allows its players – universally male no doubt – to engage in the most realistic sex acts ever conceived. One can custom design the shape, form, bodies, race, hair style, breast size of the images they wish to “engage” and then watch in crystal clear, LCD, 54 inch screen, HD clarity as the video game “persons” hump in every form, format, multiple, gender-oriented possibility they can think of.
The objections to such filth should be simple to understand.
This is nothing more than an updated version of Custer’s Revenge/Westward Ho. It’s all about objectifying women and making them into sex objects. That’s okay, I suppose as long as it’s within the confines of man/woman marriage. But objectification outside of wedlock is perverse and wrong.
Starting with the disgusting idea that one can “create” their own versions of what people look like, removing warts, moles, and bald spots while enhancing – shall we say – the extended features of the game’s characters tends to objectify women, sex, and human relationships. Right? We can all agree on this?
That’s a good point. I’ve yet to see a video game with warts. But worse is how such immersive games, especially those featuring unrestricted carnal acts, including virtual sodomy, can confuse young minds about the real world.
If a pre-teen, teen, young adult, or adult male plays such a game in which the women DO submit without choice, are made to appear as Barbie streetwalkers, and perform whatever act can be imagined, what’s to stop that same male from assuming that the women in his “other world” shouldn’t be forced to do the same.
And we all know the negative effects of pornography on the male mind, but what about pornography where a youngster has the ability to control the action, limited by only his warped imagination? He will tickle his jaded senses until a fuse blows inside his mind. And then, look out.
We now know because of the lengthy track record of serial killer after another that addictive use of pornography was prevalent in case after case – long before the switch got flipped and what their masturbatory imaginations have given into became what they were forcing real live human beings to do.
This kind of filth, marketed to teen boys needs to be stamped out. What’s the solution? Is there something a President could do? Why yes, there is.
Yes there will be many snickers that I decided to bring this issue up in the Presidential cycle of 2008 but how refreshing would it be for a President to prove to the nation that his own manhood was not in question and put his pen and signature to a bill that dealt with such simulated sex excess in a way that was punitive to its creators to such a degree that they would never recover from it?
Therein lies a solution. Vote smart. Would a President Obama do anything about this? No. Would a President Huckabee do what needs to be done? Yes. Vote Republican and flush this kind of filth into the sewer where it belongs.
