Pro Bullying and Abuse game hits the internet
American internet blogger Anita Sarkeesian started a online project in May of this year to raise the money she needed to research “ tropes vs women in video-games.” What began as a kick starter project in researching this issue has turned into something very different indeed.
The sick and disturbing video game “Beat up Anita Sakeesian” as been unveiled on the internet inviting users to do exactly as the title says. Users of the site have left messages condemning the game but comments have also been left talking about violence, physical assaualt and rape towards the blogger. Several comments when we looked at the site where shocking to read and gave the thumbs up and 5/5 to the project.
The game which can be found @ http://www.newgrounds.com has accused the blogger of scamming people which has helped her so far raise in excess of $158.000 (due to tomthumb.info’s beliefs we did not want to post a direct link as we do not promote violence and abuse of any shape or form)
Above is the only picture that we are willing to post. What starts out as as a picture inviting users to hit her soon changes with each click gradually depicting bruised eyes, mouth and a broken and bloody nose. The end result is horrific.
Regardless of the ins and outs of the accusations, how can it be right and just to promote violence, bullying and abuse online. Tomthumb.info would like to see a ban on things like this been accessible and allowed to be published on the internet. Issues such as violence, abuse and bullying of any kind have no place in the world that we live in and we hope one day that a full stop will be put to them all.
