Teen Rape Victim Petitions for RapeLay Ban


A 14-year-old American rape victim has started a petition to have “rape games,” specifically RapeLay, banned. She was sexually assaulted at age 8 in a crime which had occurred before the game was released and appears to have had nothing to do with adult games.

Quoth the girl:

“This game is wrong. It needs to be stopped. No game like this should ever be put out there. Rape is not a joke. People seem to think that it is. They don’t take it seriously, but rape isn’t a joke. It is very hurtful.”

Apparently no one told her the game was never released in the USA and has already been withdrawn from sale – most copies now circulating are themselves already illegal by way of piracy.

South Carolina news picked up the story, doubtless hoping for some easy Japan-bashing controversy ala CNN:

The petition resides here – although heavily vandalised, be warned that the mass media will likely simply report the total number of entries, irrespective of their validity.

Considering the US leads the world in producing games centred on the most heinous and enjoyable acts of murder and carnage, the sheer hypocrisy of any criticism of Japan prior to a ban on violent games in the US hardly needs mentioning.

    The person who raped her and 99.999% if rapists probably never played Rapelay.

    "She was sexually assaulted at age 8 in a crime which had occurred before the game was released and appears to have had nothing to do with adult games."

    This quote speaks for itself. Even without Jack Thompson, this whole thing doesn't make any sense, does it?

    Common sense is dead. Long live common sense!

    Common sense is so rare these days it might as well be considered a super power.

    Eh if something happens to you your always going to be more sensitive or critical of the situation. Making fun of her or demeaning her is just wrong. At the same time even if you have been through something bad you need to teach yourself how to separate yourself from fiction. Its like a DUI victim being overly sensitive that a movie contains a scene of drunk driving or GTA4 allows you to drive drunk and get drunk.

    So...how was did a 14 year old stumble across a banned copy of a game involving pornography? I thought you had to be 18 to legally view porn in the US...

    If she actively searched for the title, she might have violated the Child Protection and Obscenity Enforcement Act...

    Let's see...I was raped when I was 15, and I am really disgusted that this girl is speaking on 'my behalf'.

    I'm not even bothered but Rapelay, especially as it's a game in Japan that's now illegal. It's just a game. A game is not reality.

    Sorry "little" girl, you fail so hard. You can't even get this game in the North America anymore. Furthermore, what happens to be produced in a foreign country and can't hurt you is no worth your time to hog the airwaves. Lose some mass, and then we might pay attention (maybe).

    @ That fat ass pile of flabby shit:

    FUCK. YOU. If you don't like it, fine. Don't play it. But just because you don't like, doesn't justify you taking it away from everyone else.

    Besides, RapeLay is old now. And it has been gone from public eyes for a long time too. The game never even came out over here in the U.S. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?!

    Bottom line: Shut the fuck up.

    Rape is not a joke,petition made, therefore rape games should be banned.

    By that logic and my shallow knowledge,
    let's take something most people would know, grand theft auto, and an aspect of the game is murder.

    I do not hear anyone saying gta should be banned.
    I do not know of any gta ban petition.
    Therefore, murder is a joke.

    dam shes an idiot...

    this is how i imagined the report should have gone...
    "a fourteen year old idiot, wants to ban a game called 'rapelay' which has already been banned." *cough stupid cough*

    This Double negative, the banning of a banned game has has seemed to cause the release of the ban on the game rapelay by banning the ban!

    Idiot fourteen year old girl & Equality Now: "fk, didn't see that coming..."

    now that would have been hilarious!

    Anyone else think this girl is an idiot? I feel sorry for her getting raped, yeah, but a few things.
    1. It isn't even sold here in the U.S. anyways, and they pulled sales of it in various places already.
    2. the game was released after her assault....
    3.When they finally show concrete proof that rape games cause rape rates to go up, THEN I may decide to give a damn.

    Just a stupid little bitch trying to get attention...got the news by the fags in CNN and now wants to be the first "actual victim" of a RapeLay player (and I bet that the poor sucker that raped her doesn't even know the game).

    If anyone needed rapelay to learn how to rape someone else or for it to encouraged them, then you seriously fail at life.

    We might as well ban facebook/myspace/etc because it could encourage stalking which could lead to rape, murder and more.

    I do feel bad that she was raped, and appauled that people are making fun of her. But usually rape victims stay quiet instead of coming out like that. What does the world have a shortage of rapes all of a sudden now, and she needs to be that one brave person who speaks for everyone?

    Also a lot of rapes could have been prevented with some common sense and more supervision by there parents.

    She played a game which is already banned and yet she been telling the news and she Quote "First I was afraid
    I was petrified Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side But I spent so many nights
    thinking how you did me wrong I grew strong I learned how to carry on and so you're back from outer space....(Then the News cut her short clearly it shows News Editors were from an age where Disco sucks )". Okay for some reason the girl needs to know that the game is already banned the game company that made the game is no longer making it.

    The only thing is that game is Bootleg nothing more so go ahead can claim to us how you got a copy of the game?

    Why can't anyone ever understand cultural differences? Besides, the only way to get the game (now) is to torrent it, so all these news organizations have just broken the law, if they have the game. And, if you wanted to get it in the US, you would have to import it. Therefore, you would probably have to like this kind of thing, not find it on accident.

    I won't say anything on her weight, or her looks, but I will say that she is an attention whore, and an ignorant idiot. Probably now racist, as well, assuming all Japanese (or Asian) people are rapists who play these games.

    And in this country, where freedom of speech is so "important," the media, and people, choose to censor other people. Forcing our "morals" on other people. How very American.
