Feminists Force Ban of “RapeLay”


The anti-free speech feminist group “Equality Now” has apparently succeeded in forcing the publisher of “rape simulator” game RapeLay into withdrawing the game from sale, as the game has quietly disappeared completely from the publisher’s homepage, and the pages of most retailers.

Equality Now, an anti-porn feminist group which organises its busybody members into campaigns of letter writing harassment intent on forcing officials into compliance, recently called for adult games featuring “violence against women and girls” to be banned (although tellingly they cited research from an explicitly “anti-pornography” group, rather suggesting their real aims are somewhat broader), after learning of Amazon’s recent bungling.

The game’s publisher, Illusion, previously told the group to mind their own business as the game was solely for the Japanese market, and quite legal there.

However, after the do-nothing group’s shrill call for a ban was published, mass media outlets hungry for Japan-bashing fare picked up the story.

Strangely, none of the reports mentioned the fact that “violence against women” is almost twenty times more common in the US than it is in rape simulator world leader Japan, instead choosing to uncritically repeat the tired calumny that Japan is a rigid patriarchy in which women languish as practical chattel.

This media attention seems to have tipped the balance somewhere, for at the time of writing, no mention of the game is to be found on Illusion’s pages. Prominent English language disclaimers remind international fans that their products are for use in Japan only.

With no statement from Illusion, and no other information, the reasoning behind the utterly craven and reprehensible abandonment of free speech is not clear.

Harder BDSM-centric titles are not a speciality of Illusion, so their other titles are mostly not along these lines. However, they are still stocking their “Battle Raper” series, which involves beating female opponents into sexual submission in a 3D fighting game interspersed with sex scenes. The demo is available here.

You can read about the specific complaints made by Equality Now in the previous article, and if you are of a mind you can contact them from their page.

This behaviour sets a disturbing precedent; there are many more extreme titles than RapeLay available in Japan, encompassing everything from AV to ero-manga; if publishers are willing to fold at the slightest breeze of criticism from a group which is not even Japanese, and from complaints without any legal weight whatsoever, it would appear their future is in doubt, as displays of weakness will only encourage further feminist aggression.

    Feminazis: 1
    World: -3

    Feminists took out a game with just threats (F+1). This shows that free speech is moot in the face of feminazis even overseas (W-1), men are slowly losing their rights to masturbate (W-1) and people actually listen to those brainless things that have pussies lined with sharp teeth (W-1).

    As feminists, they should appreciate every person's right to indulge sexual fantasies where nobody gets hurt (like in the arena of a video game), since sexual suppression was used against woman as a weapon for so long.

    They're just shrieking harpies, soccer mom's with email addresses. I'm a feminist, and I want to punch them in the face for being such nazis.

    I get off on porn too, this shit pisses me off.

    I was wondering...if someone were to produce a male rape game would equality rights people care??and if they don't care, do they still have a right to care about games in which women are raped....

    isn't that the opposite of equality...

    am I right??

    They wouldn't care, and if they were called out on it, they would make some bullshit excuse like how it's "leveling the playing field" with all the male-centric rape games.

    This is feminism in a nutshell, they want women to have everything a man can have, but also keep the perks they have as women.

    So it wasn't me alone that noticed the lack of outcry against more shota-esque ventures.

    While that might be an inherent bias in the article, I doubt I'd find a campaign for it on Equality Now's site. Could be wrong, though.

    We all need to take a stand and make sure everyone knows the real statistics! Japan is a safer place for children than the U.S.!!!!!!!!!!
    Anti porn people will try anything to accomplish their goals. And sadly, women are easy to trick into believing their false claims. They'll tell them porn leads to rape, even though it's been statistically proven to reduce it.

    Also look at this site:

    United States - 8th most rapes per capita
    Japan - 54th most rapes per capita

    Take away the countries that aren't 1st world or arab/muslim (since they could harbor many people who don't completely condone rape of woman, especially of your own wife/wives), and the then the list makes much more sense. You have to consider the amount for each country that doesn't get reported, remember. But countries like USA, Japan, Canada, Sweden, etc, you'd expect most cases get reported.

    As for Canada, we're pretty much like America when it comes to sexuality. Remember Canada was one of the first places to ban lolicon material. Maybe quebec is a little more open, but not the rest of Canada.

    You better hide those facts or the feminist groups will find you and make you eat them to keep all traces of truth from their witch hunt.

    Funny, the extreme right hates freedom of speech because it causes people to think (and maybe question the sanctity of our lord Jesus Christ). The extreme left hates freedom of speech because it interferes with their singleminded, misaimed agendas.

    And in America, why settle for one, when you can have BOTH! Yay for my country!

    This is all bullshit in my opinion, they need their eyes washed with soap - it's not the game promoting rape at the end of the day, people would only buy it for the H, not for the concept of rape. It annoys me because it's the exact same as GTA, except rock star and such are to heavy mainstream to be fucked with, so it annoys me that they target smaller companies. Again this is just an American bias point of view as well, obviously murder is worse than rape, arguably on par possibly, and yet GTA can promote murder being able to randomly select a person and brutally kill them with a baseball bat, but rape lay can't base a game on rape. Everyone knows they don't want to promote rape, heck Japan has a far lower criminal rate than most countries put together. They expect people to go out an copy this shit, why not ban GTA? (Fact because they can't due to lack of power) which in itself deems the whole theory bias and questionable anyway. It's a fucking game, any news that we get of people that are copying the stuff clearly have a screw loose anyway. Oh lets not forget rape lay is about 3 years old, feminist catches wind of it just now and decide to act on it? Yet another utterly ridiculous thing to do, what happened to the last 3 years didn't have a problem with it then?.. Lets not forget the fact that rape is in fact classed as violence not sex, but violence is perfectly ok it seems, with games such as GTA. I am not saying rape is good, heck i find it a total turn-off in doujins and H games anyway. The thing that they don't realise is with one promotion there is always the opposite because i can think of any number of games such as school days of Fate/stay night that clearly show rape as a bad thing the point is they are fiction and any sane person knows the difference, and it seems like they are implying that Japan now promotes rape as a whole. It's like the concept of having good and evil in the world, if we just have good, how people would know the difference... I just think ok i can see the feminist’s point of view, but one they chose the utterly wrong time to take action (3 years after the games release) and two as far as i can tell they chose the wrong reasons to do it as well.
