The Boyfriend Trainer Game

In this game you

 – Punch your boyfriend in the face if he looks at another girl

– Taze him if he drops clothes on the floor

– Hit him with a racket if he tries to change the channel

– Choke him with a leash if he drives to fast or tries to turn up the music volume.

The Boyfriend Trainer needs to not exist. Its sexist, abusive and sends the wrong message to everyone. Abuse is never ever okay, no matter who its directed at.

People have been complaining that feminists haven’t protested against this, and that this somehow means feminists condone violence against men.

Firstly, I’m not surprised that there hasn’t  been a huge wave of protest from anyone since this is just an online game. I wasn’t even aware of it till right now.

Secondly, I’m sure any feminist that does know of it finds it appalling. Feminism does not endorse violence against anyone. Thinking that it does is pretty ignorant.
