What on earth is WRONG with these folks??? Certainly, there must be some law against advocating hate crimes!

These people are sick... they need to stop promoting violence against women in this way.. It violates women's rights and I find this offensive..

It's shocking that this has been allowed. I hope the campaign to ban it is successful quickly!!

"Earlier this year, U.S. Amazon Marketplace distributors decided to terminate sales of RapeLay due to the number of customer complaints received. However, the game continues to be sold and advertised on foreign Amazon sites, wrote journalist and activist Jenna Henry Hansen in The Huffington Post in March. "

What a disgrace!
and a reason to boycott those Amazon sites.

Thank you for raising awareness, Susty.

This should be FRONT PAGE now! People should be made aware of this and BAN such games and also the foreign Amazon sites!

How shocking that they could even think of this - and that Amazon and others actually sell it. Some people's minds are so warped! I hope this gets taken care of very soon.

It is not enough that Amazon has taken it off its US sites, if it continues to promote it in other countries. More letters need to be written to Amazon, deploring it for allowing such attacks to appear as "fun games" for profit. Naturally, their own wives and daughters are not the vitims, so disdain and disregard for other women are justifiable to them each time they cash another profit check. Shameless!!!
