Anyone bothered by sexism yet?
 
The moral crusaders go on and on, has anyone felt uncomfortable or offended yet? I haven't.

Interestingly the most comfortable I've been so far has had to do with men, so to speak.

First when Trevor killed Johnny like a bitch and second at the torture scene.

Get out of here with that sexism bullshit you troll.

i actually felt like they adressed this perfectly in one scene shortly after that.

Trevor the psycopath turns and says "Why must you disrespect women?" then wade turns and goes "I wasn't disrespecting her, i was just saying we should kill her is all"

There's sexism left, right and centre. There's also racism and everything else offensive left, right and centre. I think a lot of the time they do it in a way that's parodying real-life sexism though.. Which I don't know if it's better or worse.

@protoman: As for whether you've been offended or not.. Thats irrelevant, assuming you're a man (judging from the username). If a significant amount of women are offended by it, it means it's offensive. It's not up to some male to tell them that it's not offensive.

Some people will use the argument that the people who are offended should just not play the game, but that's also irrelevant. Because there are millions of players out there, who haven't put any kind of deep thought into the subject, who will see offensive behaviour and think it's acceptable. And they will go on to affect the people who don't play the game.

All of that can be applied to any of the offensive material though. Replace women/sexism with black people/racism, etc. Is GTA offensive? Hell yeah, that's the majority of their humour. Am I personally offended? Hell no. But as a white male I have no right to tell other people what to be offended by.

As a woman I am not having any problems with the game.
