Random Shots: The Other Side Of The Coin

  • First, a game where you, playing as a woman, can shoot all the jerks harassing solely due to your sex can be found here.

  • Second, an article explaining why the game resonated with her can be found here.

  • Third, a blogger feeling vaguely guilty about any contribution he makes to all this can be found right here. No link required.

  1. All I can say is LOL...I too am a good looking young woman living downtown in a big city and have been harrassed by jerks with bad pickup lines and catcalls, but all I've ever wanted to do and done is pick up my step and turn the next corner a little faster.

    Personally, I don't play games to "channel my rage", though admittedly this is an interesting premise for a video game, and not surprising given what other ideas are out there.

  2. @ MMOGamerChick - Not surprised either. Just disappointed that someone would feel the need to express their frustrations by creating such a game.

    Sometimes things like this sneak up on me and smack me in the head. Not sure if I hate that the guys do this or that I was so oblivious about the effect it has on women.
