Which is worse, rape or murder?

· Miscellany

Scot Hacker has posed a provocative thought-experiment to his readers who defend video games that depict killing. In his post entitled Just Pretending he asks which is worse, rape or murder. Then he asks whether it would be OK for children to play rape games.

This has spawned an active discussion, at the birdhouse and elsewhere, including a long debate in LiveJournalspace.

Where do you come down on this?
