Is that supposed to be some kind of joke? It ain't funny.
Kathleen, no it's not funny. But I'll bet you giggle just a bit when you see men suffering the pain of being hit in the nuts. That happens every day -- in mainstream media, no less.
I'll bet when you see that, you don't say a word. You probably don't even give it a second thought.
While the video is extremely juvenile and in poor taste, it should be noted that it's not a commercial videogame. It's merely user-created content made in the PlayStation 2 create-your-own-fighting-game package Fighter Maker 2. So this is one case where the individual gamer should be blamed, not the industry.
Actually, Beck, I'm a woman, and I have never found those stupid crotch shots funny. I can't be the only one.
And this is just as bad.
Em, you're probably not the only one, but there's a vast majority of women that find kicking men in the crotch a hilarious idea, it's only fair that this guy is allowed to do whatever he wants in his game. If you look at America's Funniest Home videos and find one episode where a man isn't blasted in the sack by a teeball bat or a baseball or some other instrument in a freak pinata accident, I'll pay you.
i'm with em - no, i don't find men being hit/kicked in the crotch funny. BUT i think it's a stupid comparison - how often do you see someone being *repeatedly* hit/kicked/punched in the crotch? is that funny? this 'vagina punch' is disturbing and awful. it doesn't make me want to cover my vag and wince in sympathy, it makes me wonder who the hell this sick freak is and why s/he hates women so much?
not to say that crotch shots to any gender is acceptable, but the distinct difference between women and men receiving them is that it is directing violence at a woman's genitals. not to say that that never happens with men but that there is an incredibly LONG and current history of violence against women. mutilating, raping, and beating women happens EVERY DAY, something that happens much less frequently to men (but it does happen!). this video game shows the focus of violence once again on a woman's body, and it shows what we have been teaching people: that it is ok to hurt other people and it is funny to act out hatred against women. just a side note, most of the time on america's funniest home videos where there's a man getting hit in the crotch it's a child doing it accidentally, not another adult male trying to beat him to death... and even so, I don't think it's funny at all, violence is violence and it's disgusting.
OH FOR CHRISTS SAKE, WILL YOU ALL JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT MEN BEATING WOMEN/ WOMEN BEATING MEN1
IT'S JUST A COUPLE OF COMPUTER GENERATED WOMEN PUNCHING EACH OTHER IN THE VAGINA!!!!
PLEASE ALL JUST GET A LIFE AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, GO SOMEPLACE ELSE, DON'T TURN IT INTO SOME MORAL ISSUE!
If you don't like seeing men punched in the crotch then you *SHOULDN'T* like this either.
Otherwise you are using way fuzzt logic in order to justify this. Women are targeted for sexual violence at very high numbers. This kind of game (no matter who did it) shows the kind of mentality that accepts sexual violence.
they really should be punching each other through the vaginas and into the fetuses they hold...you may not know this...but those 3d women are pregnant....and and single....and loving it!!
also, they deserved to get punched in their vaginas because they are single and pregnant. Should've stood by your man, now look where are you are..in a crazy made up universe where the only way survive..is to punch your way out...the the genitals of another woman...and that other woman is.....your half sister...will family blood get in the way of self survival...and the survival of the baby inside you..that really no one wanted?..I mean you wanted at first when you thought it could anchor that crazy man of yours...but we all know where that got you...crazy vagina punching universe......i'm more of an xbox 360 man myself...
Seeing a guy getting hit in the crotch and then doubling over in pain is hilarious, and so is this
Just to correct some of the misinformation posted here (bunny): violence against men is *far* more prevalent in the world than violence against women.
There is a much longer history of violence against men being not only socially tolerated, but encouraged.
Not to say that violence against anyone is acceptable, but men as a group are targets of violence *far* more than women.
Dazzle speaks a piece of crap; violence against WOMEN are being ignored by the police, the media...all in a world that also romanticizes stalking, of course.
Don't believe me? Google (or Blackle) Natasha Hall, a 17 year old girl who got killed by her sociopathic ex boyfriend; the police told HER to stop calling them for help. The police also thought that dragging a girl out of a store by her hair, threatening to burn her house down, hitting her in the face, etc. were all "normal relationship problems".
I agree that this is just a stupid game that I will ignore, but if you're gonna make statements that try to downplay awareness of violence against women...then please cite your sources. :) Some women aren't stupid, like you'd want them to be.
Dazzle: Yes, men *are* more likely to be murdered. Yes, there is a lot of violence against men. But that rarely has the sexual overtones of violence against women. UNIFem are currently running a campaign against gender based violence; globally, more women are killed in domestic violence situations (i.e. by someone known to them) than by war, malaria and the other major illnesses (check their site for the rest) *combined*.
I don't find crotch shot on men funny either, and would only use that as a method of self-defence.
And isn't it odd that all the women in this guy's video game are scanitly clad (sometimes in bunny suits) and often lying prone with their legs spread?
Misogynist crap, really disturbing. I'm sure your mom is proud.
I punch my bitch in the vagina all the time and I think its funny!!
I think the real issue here is: You bitches cant take a joke, which is what this game is, a joke.
YOU PEOPLE ARE TRUELY FUCKING PATHETIC.
YOU DO REALIZE THAT THEY ARE NOT REAL, RIGHT? THAT THEY ARE JUST COMPUTER CHARACTERS PUNCHING AND KICKING EACH OTHER IN THE VAGINA? IT'S OBSURD BUT THAT'S WHY IT'S FUNNY. LIKE BUNNIES WITH ANAL CANCER.
NOW STOP YOUR FUCKING BITCHING CUS IF I WANTED SHIT FROM ANY OF YOU, I WOULD SQUEEZE YOUR HEAD. I BET YOU ARE ALL GODDAMN JESUS LOVING BIBLE FREAKS. GO FUCK YOUR SELVES. I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS. OH AND LICK MY ASSHO!
I am Spektakulo, and I approve this message.
Sorry guys, you just got attacked by feministing.com (lol fisting and feminism get it?), a website for the most bitter, vile, angry feminists on the internet. Anything remotely negative involving anything partially resembling a female will not be tolerated by these fascists, which makes me wonder how they feel about Ranma 1/2. But anyway, they cannot be reasoned with, there is no discussion or intelligent discourse, just the overflowing hatred for all things not worshipping women.
I visit the site as a feminist myself because it reminds me how fanatical people can get being religion, politics, or suffrage. It makes me check myself to make sure I'm not turning into a zealot.
Also because it's funny to see them hate everything and everyone that doesn't agree with them. :D
Why are women more likely to be the victim of domestic violence? Because they tend to become annoying, whiney monsters that make you regret the day you impregnated them for the rest of your live.
According to Sadie:
"violence against women is ignored by police and the media."
I can't speak for where Sadie lives, but where I live, there are mandatory arrest laws (police can't ignore domestic abuse), mandatory no-drop laws (prosecuting attorneys can't ignore domestic abuse) and there is heavy media coverage across the western world. What Sadie says may be true outside of the west - I can't speak to that - but in the west what she says is clearly a fabrication.
Depresso's statements are all likely true. I haven't looked them up, but on the face I believe them. They are also very misleading.
Men are more likely to be murdered, as Depresso acknowledges. They are more likely to be victims of every single legal category of violence with the exception of sexual assault. That means if you're a man, you're more likely to be killed, maimed, and battered than if you're a woman. You're more likely to be abducted, tortured, and unlawfully confined. You're also more likely to be forced by the State through perfectly legal measures to fight and die for your country - a form of forced violence no woman can imagine.
As to the stat for more women being killed by domestic violence than war or malaria: that hardly should surprise anyone. In most countries, women aren't allowed to fight in wars and malaria these days has a very low mortality rate thanks to modern medicine.
I don't expect that I'm going to convert any of the ideologues who have written here - they'll argue to they're blue in the face because I'm challenging what is ostensibly their religion. Feminists reject facts just like the Pope rejects science. But for the tens of people who are actually following this thread, I hope you'll try to educate yourself on the issues on both sides of the debate.
"I think the real issue here is: You bitches cant take a joke, which is what this game is, a joke."
EXACTLY. Get over yourselves and learn to take a joke. IT WAS FUNNY.
Bitches need to be dealt with!
Speaking as a man who spent 24 hours in a jail cell for yolling at my wife for punching me in the head I think all who say women are abused and the police ignore it are either retarded or have an agenda that doesnt take reality into account. Police are so afraid of the femnazis that they actualy over react if anything. So as someone whos family had to spend over 500 dollars in court costs and bail only to have the judge rule the charges frivoulous Id say your all full of it.
when americas funniest home videos stops all the male groin shots then ban the vagina kicks until then shut the fuck up feminist bitches
No women on the internet. Get back in the kitchen, bitches.
Women should be punched in the groin. It's just an attack that hurts both genders, and is really should be considered a form a sexual assult. Anyway, punching/kicking/kneeing women in the groin is fun. It is finally now that they can see the pain that men feel, and experience those feelings that men feel. Good Luck to them...
This is so funny, I love it when whores are degraded. Get back to the kitchen bitches!!!
I thought this was going to be funny, but these comments are really disturbing.
Sounds to me like "Sadie" just needs to get laid.
A feminist is 3 or more cats' best friend.
