CAn anyone help me with revising it because even one mistake and they'll say "this guy is uneducated and a pervert. he might be one of those future rapist that becamse a rapist because he play those rape games". So I need help! Even though I'm in the U.S my engish is horrible (yeah, this country sucks doesn't it) and I doubt my letter will convince them but I figure if everybody send enough they will come to senses and stop being so stubborn and thinking up such radical thoughts.
I try to make myself sound sincere. I figure they get enough hate letters. So being nice might help. Atma if your reading this I used your quote from sankakucomplex, your words were inspiring and what slap me.
Dear ladies of Equality Now:
I’m writing to you today concerning action 33.1 and I must say that I am displeased with your illogical course of action. While I do agree that Illusion Rapelay is taking it too far by depicting a mother and her 2 daughters being rape and later being turn to his object of pleasure, I however do not agree with your intent to ban all form of hentai including your attempt to ban all fetishes beleieving that it insert a stereotype on the sexuality of woman. I have recently been interested in Japanese culture and I say that Equality Now is over exaggerating the mental and emotional harm that these hentai games do to woman. I have played a few games and not all of them involve a girl in the street being pulled into a deserted alley and then raped but a plethora of them emphasize love, hope and support to their significant other. However, even if I play these I highly doubt my will to be able to sacrifice myself the same way the men do. For example in one game, the main character jump off a cliff to try and reach his beloved even though she was already falling and in another, the main character jump in front of the 12ft giant wielding a huge sword in order to protect his woman from dying . I however don’t believe that I have the courage to do that. The reason why I state this example to show that actions depicted in fantasy and those in reality differ immensely. I do not believe that playing rape games will force a mindset to the player that raping someone is ok and is normal, the exact same way my 14 year old cousin doesn’t believe that killing someone with machineguns is normal or that it takes 3 missiles to completely kill someone or that the dead can come back to life through a magic spell. Your beliefs are biased and corrupted due to your stubbornness in this matter without any evidence and physical backing.
While, I do support most of your actions including action 32.1, 21.6, 26.1 and 31.1 because they involve helping real woman and actual violence and crimes against real woman and not those on paper and computers. I believe that your concern about “normalize and promote sexual violence against women and girls” is far from the truth. If you look at the rates of rape in http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_rap-crime-rapes you can see that in total Japan rank 20 out 84 and lower than many other 1st world country and per capita rank 54 out 65 meaning that only 1 out of 100,000 people have committed a rape crime showing you that these depiction of brutal female violence and sex do not make the player believe that he should rape someone or that he want to rape someone.
A friend of mine respond to one of your recent comment about the amount of hate mail :
“Unprecedented” my ass. They had to know what they were getting into. How could they NOT know? You try to censor anything, people are going to bite you in the rear for it. And rightfully so.
I’m a woman. I could be considered a classic feminist, wanting equal, and only equal, rights. Both the good and the bad that come with it, spare nothing. I fuck up? Give me an equal jail sentence. I do something cool? Give me an equal reward. Nobody is superior to the other.
Want to fight sexual violence against us girls? Then fight the actual IRL crime. I play eroge. Do I want to actually rape anyone for real? Not in the least. I play violent games. Do I want to murder anyone? Not at all. Give me facts, please, ladies, and stop making us sane females look bad.
I can defend myself on my own just fine, thanks. Maybe you should learn how to as well and quit expecting others to hand everything to you on a silver platter.
I support her 100%. I consent and respect your right to exercise your freedom of opinion and speech but I believe that your assault on hentai game is wrong and unneeded. Please reconsider your actions because your actions not only hurt and put pressure to the hentai game industry but those that watch and enjoy Japanese cultural overall. In that sense, the general public that enjoy Japanese cartoons and comic books are also being harmed. There have been several discussions in forums that they might be affect due to your continuing attacks on Japanese Culture and the need to put strict restrictions on them.
Thank you for your time
Any help is appreciated, anything you guys want to add is fine. Any ideas is appreciated too. Too nice? Abusive Letter instead maybe?
