Virtual Rape Is Traumatic, but Is It a Crime? Give me a break!

Who in the world would ever believe this. Virtual Rape? Are people so weak minded that text from a computer screen can be considered rape? The fear of what you can say and can not say to people is a big problem in the US, now we trying to make it a problem online. I think if people are so scared of words they might have bigger problems then "Virtual Rape", maybe they are so mentally unstable that they need physiological help. Second Life is a great idea for a game/online life... Its just sad that someone would think that there virtual world is real and treat it like one. Real Rape in the Real World is something to worry about, not silly online games where nothing is real. There digital bits that can be erased.... Not like real life where things are really embedded into a person mental health. Online life, I feel has effected people way to much, they cant tell the difference between whats happening online and whats happening in the real world.

I totally agree. The political correctness quotient has gone overboard here and too much time is spent on trying not to offend someone.

Since technological innovation is moving faster than evolutionary adaptation, it will be interesting (and maybe scary) to see where technology ends up taking this society. Unfortunately if craziness is in a majority, then it isn't crazy (but should be!) Let's hope we don't go down this road too far.
