[[IMMERSIVE]] Sex in Grand Theft Auto: S. A.
Grand Theft sexA BBC article on Senator Hillary Clinton comments on the sex scene in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.
There is no doubting the fact that the widespread availability of sexually explicit and graphically violent video games makes the challenge of parenting much harder.
Ironically I think a lot of children's sexual knowledge increased after the scandal with Hillary's husband and its intimate details being played out in the subsequent impeachment hearing. But why does knowledge of sex make parenting harder? Speaking personally, having copious amounts of ad-breaks for crap expensive toys during children's programmes, or placing sweets at child height at supermarket checkouts make parenting a lot more hard than knowledge of sex, or does Hillary still like to tell Chelsea that babies are delivered by a stork?

The BBC is too prudish to pubish a link that shows what all the fuss is about, but Fleshbot has no such qualms and are far whittier about it too.

"You see, Virginia, when a male computer-game character loves a female computer-game character very much..."

So... in today's computer games you can beat up, shoot, and blow to smithereens beautiful women... in fact, computer games teach young people 1001 ways to murder one another... but it's WRONG to teach teenagers how to make love.

I don't know. Maybe it's just me, but... if sex in computer games is morally wrong, then violence in computer games must be 100 times MORE wrong -- and should, for the sake of consistency, be outlawed.

Or is it that I come from another culture, where shooting people is not considered the noblest form of human endavour?
