Shooting sexual harassers? No doubt "Hey Baby" is a radical feminists wet dream. One can imagine the uproar over a video game in which you play a man who can shoot women. Why, it'd be culturally unthinkable, no matter what the circumstances were. Video games like "Grand Theft Auto" have already proven to be capable of making unhinged people go crazy and actually hurt people (i.e. Columbine), now thanks to "Hey Baby" women with anti-male revenge fantasies can take a step further getting vengeance. Only question is will it on the TV screen?There’s a lot to dislike about the feminist movement these days. Between the nonstop hypocrisy and endemic self-victimization, “Hear me roar” has been reduced to “Listen to me whine.” Now, a new first-person shooter game, “Hey Baby,” gives women the opportunity to virtually kill men who sexually harass them. Is this … feminism?
“Ever had one of those seemingly endless days?” the promotional copy for “Hey Baby” teases. “All you want to do is to get home… You’re the last one out of the office. Its getting dark outside…” From the shadows, a man catcalls, “I wanna lick you all over.” What’s a girl to do?
Well, since you’re packing a “a 3′ long .80 caliber machine gun that’s locked and loaded,” you blow his brains out. Apparently, “IT’S PAYBACK TIME, BOYS.” And how. The video game’s cover features a sexy young woman in a short-short white dress tromping down the street with a gun behind her back. In her wake, the streets are awash with blood and the bodies of murdered men.
Initially, some speculated the game was a 4chan hoax designed to make fun of feminists. In fact, the game was created by Suyin Looui and LadyKillas Inc. “I really wanted the violence to be so ridiculous and sort of over the top gory, that people would know that it was a joke,” Looui told NPR. Meanwhile, feminist websites are eating it up, deeming it “revenge therapy.”
