Lack of Morals +

I've gone on before at length about the dangers of moral relativism before, but I think it's important to point out when it goes full circle and starts to prove my point.

From the recent #GamerGate debate :

There are, of course, many points that are clearly missed by this account, including the hypocrisy of such a statement.

For one, if they think violence against women is wrong, then why is violence against men suddenly right?  It's a pretty distorted point of view that wants to eliminate violence against one group because it's soooo bad, yet go ahead when it comes to men.  There is no consistency in these statements, not to mention immature.

Once you get past the brutal hypocrisy, and you compare the statement against the reality of GTA V in game, you will realize that there is a great deal of violence in it against men as well.  So it's entire point, is invalid to begin with.

Lastly, video games should be able a great many things.  Being about solely about killing men isn't just disgusting, but it's totalitarian.  Games should be about whatever developers want to program.  The fact that Atheism+ basically wants to tell you which games you should play, and which you shouldn't, tells you that much like Atheism that was preached by Stalin, at the end of the day, Social Justice is about power and control.
