Russians don't like "The Sims 4" because of gay relationships

Russians don't like "The Sims 4" because of gay relationships
Damned Russians:

Quote:The Sims 4 has received an unlikely R18+ rating in Russia due to a law restricting the depiction of same-sex relationships to minors.

More videogame restrictions, and for idiotic reasons.

Russia is very superstitious and religious. Their medical care is base on witch doctor and new age methods. A large population still believe homosexuality is a disease or illness.

RE: Russians don't like "The Sims 4" because of gay relationships
I don't like Russia because of their homophobia. I demand that their country be split into two - one where homosexuals can live without persecution, and one where homophobes are free to discriminate against nobody, since there won't be any homosexuals there.

...Sure seems like a stupid argument when turned around, doesn't it? I wonder why...
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Libya doesn't like the sims for depicting relationships (and other sins).
At least we're not hypocrites

The Russians love Tetris!
(No gays in Tetris!)

I think the ruskies mentality is permanently stuck in the cold war.

For some reason I don't think religion contributes much to the homophobia in Russia. I think its more to do with their culture somehow. Oh and didn't sims 2 and 3 also have same sex relationships? and other games, like Skyrim and Fallout, etc

It's because in the sims 4 you are able (apparently) to chose the sexual orientation, whereas in the sims 3 or 2 you could make people have homosexual relationships but they'd still be able to hold on to heterosexual ones - I don't even know if gays could get married in the sims 2. This means you can create a characters who is only attracted to same sex people. Seriously, +18?

I agree with you on the religion part, I think Russia has a mentality problem, but since the cold war I don't think religion plays a big role, I remember seeing some statistics somewhere that show Russians don't even consider religion to play a big role in their lives

It isn't the first time that this happens to video games.


I just wish this will be the last.
I now I'm a dreamer for hoping this may be the last time this happens. Please don't shatter my dreams, please! it's only thing I have left.

Boners.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great
