To the contrary, rape is exactly that. It is the forced sexual assault of another person [i]without their consent.[/i]
While I agree that this topic is little more than some pathetic attempt to seek vengeance for some imagined wrong, committed by a player who has already shown he is ignorant and has all the personality of slime mold, I find the above statement--made by the creator of this game--to be in extremely poor taste as well as inaccurate and insensitive to those who have been the victims of the [b]very real[/b] crime of sexual assault.
Rape, by its definition, is nonconsensual. The victim doesn't "just let it happen." They are forced to engage in an activity that, in nearly any other circumstance, they would otherwise not consent to participate.
Role played rape is something that cannot happen; one cannot be forced into participating in a sexual act when said person has the ability to move away from the scene, log off, or even "defend" against another’s actions. One who is using sexually laden or even violent language, however, can harass another, following them around with the sole purpose of being abusive. There are several avenues open to any who see this type of behavior and can easily report it to the proper authorities. In the end, though, role played rape is not, and should not, be a concern within this, or any other, game.
That being said, I still find the statement made by Muratus del Mur to be completely inappropriate. Speaking with those who have been the victims of sexual assault would enlighten you in discovering how consensual the contact was. Your statement is appalling, insensitive, and ignorant.
Please do not confuse what happens within this virtual world with what occurs within the real one.
Thank you, Watcher.
Edit: The point is when you are in that situation you can fight as much as you want but if the person over powers you, your screwed. It is not consensual when such a thing happens and it is not okay in any way shape or form. The women who have such things happen to the do not 'ask for it' nor do they deserve it.
