A new videogame that requires you to abduct women and give them a "reassuring slap" if they freak out has gamers and women's rights-groups crying foul.
Brace yourself for the awfully sexist world of Duke Nukem Forever.
The game's 1996 precursor Duke Nukem 3D -- which sold 3.5 million copies, made millions for its developers and transformed the entire world of video games -- depicted women as strippers and prostitutes. The new iteration of the game, set for release this spring, takes sexism to a new level -- starting with Duke receiving implied oral sex from twins in school uniforms.
"It was offensive then and it's even more offensive now," Jamia , vice president of the Women's Media Center, told FoxNews.com. "These depictions of women are extremely harmful, especially to young women," she added.
Duke Ferris, editor-in-chief at gamehelper.com, said sexism is an intentional part of Duke Nukem Forever. “The game is meant to objectify women -- that's the point,” he said.
Whine whine whine bitch bitch bitch. Take your "harmful to women" bemoaning and slap the next rapper you see right in the kisser with it.
Yeah right. Moan over a video game while real live "people" are getting awards by the boatload for promoting far worse.
Me, I can't wait to see the Duke again. And oh yeah, I promise not to be harmful to any women.
