Rarely, it happens that I am left speechless.

    Oh, yes. And just on the heels of another blogger looking for educational games… Hmph.

    (Partially cross-posted on the linked blog):

    While I have no patience for anyone who’d say something like “Children?s innocence should be protected as far as possible” (I remember being a child; “children’s innocence” is a cultural fiction – sheer ignorance with a halo or an illusionary artifact of the willful blindness of ignorant adults, depending on the child – and efforts to “protect” it are at best a sham and at worst a destructive suffocation of intellectual and moral growth), but I can see this sort of game as an unhealthy influence; if my daughter ever played anything like this it’d be with me sitting beside her and helping her “MST3K” it.

    I’ll definitely be checking out the Amelia Bloomer Project, though. Thanks for the link. ^.^

    Actually it’d be a great incentive for young women to design their own game in response, wouldn’t it?
