Women’s Rights Petition: Tell Walmart: Don’t sell “Duke Nukem Forever” with “Babe-Slapping Mode” | Change.org.

To be clear, Duke Nukem Forever makes a game out of physical and sexual violence against women.And Randy Pitchford — CEO of Gearbox Software which is in charge of the game’s release — thinks that’s simply hilarious. He took to Twitter to address reports about the seriousness of the violence in the game, tweeting, “Get it right, folks! In the DNF MP game, “Capture the Babe”, Duke can give the girl a love smack on the booty – not face!”

Some may say with statements like that, Mr. Pritchford is courting controversy to boost game sales. Maybe so. But consumers have a right and a responsibility to speak out against a game that contributes to a culture in which one in four American women will become a victim of domestic violence.
