How is this sexual harassment?

It was done in bad taste, but harassment is dependent on the person its happening to. She probably didn't find it humourous as the other two did. She was targeted because of her physique.

Lastly, how do we know "Alice" was even a girl? Could've been a dude.

She was female, you hear her voice inside the video

If you don't like microtransactions in full priced AAA games, vote with your wallet and don't buy those games.

Neither funny nor offensive. Just stupid.

So this is a big deal because his in game character model that looks nothing like him in real life, is making a sexual joke about one of the other players character model thats a woman, who happens to be played by a woman that looks nothing like her character model...?

I fail to see the issue here. Even if she scanned her body into the game, and the character started pressing her nipples like they were buttons on the touch screen, thats not sexual harassment. Thats called just being funny (depending on your sense of humor), or called being a jackass (depending on your sense of maturity), and last but not least of all--especially least of all actually--or called being a sexual predator (depending on your overall grip on reality..heres a hint, no grip...no grip on reality whatsoever if you think this).

I literally cannot think of one single time, in the history of man-kind, that when some male player T-Bagged another male player, that it was compared on any similar level to when a male T-Bags another male in real life. It literally has just never happened. Because, y'know, video games are games, not real life, and you are not meant to have repercussions for your actions in video games (well, unless the game dev thinks something is becoming a problem, which then its removed, or the feedback system is introduced), no matter how vile, or inhumane the act of treachery may be. This is why the ESRB says the rating of the game is out the window as soon as you step onto the online battlefield, because there is no accounting for the language, or actions of an individual within any video game.

Edit: Forgot to say, i thought it was funny, but the guy is obviously an idiot for dicking around like that. But still funny.

So if it's appalling that a female gamer was harassed, what do you feel when a male gamer is harassed?


Came here to say this.


Harassed or sexually harassed? If just harassed, that's not the issue here... If sexually harassed, it's both equally a problem. But let's be honest, do male gamers face constant sexual harassment in the gaming community? Do you guys even think that it's likely that they would?

Edit: I actually think the video is funny, but on the topic of sexual harassment, sexual harassment =\= harassment.

Sexual harassment in video games is a non-issue. You can mute people in most multiplayer games.

Yes actually. Jump into some CSGO casual, and people will start talking about how they want to XXX and this and that to you.
And, most people respond in jest, as is the only appropriate way to respond to such a thing.
