Grand Theft Auto: the polemic goes on
When we thought the controversy had been exhausted, we find out this might?only be the beginning. Now it?s time for the ‘sex workers’ to have their say about the game.
The Sex Workers Outreach Project USA (Swop), a group that promotes safety and dignity in, eh-hem…sex work, has published an article on their website appealing for mothers to boycott GTA.
The protest originates from the fact that GTA players make scores when they kill or rape a prostitute in the game.
In the article, Swop reminds parents of the issues involving child development and interactive representations of violence.
