  1. Speaking as a feminist gamer (AD&D2E and Shadowrun) who is also a sex worker, I would like to point out that I find *both* this game *and* the disclaimer involved very offensive. Marketing a misogynistic a game based on crude stereotypes of the sex industry is bad enough; ‘defending’ such bigotry by bowing down to the altar of a patriarchal moralism which currently persecutes American sex workers is a second and worse slap in the face. This is to disclaim an insult by adding injury.

Ah. Games like this (pimp the backhanding) are just annoying and insulting. Why arent they sued for releasing games like that. It is not ok to consider women property, it never was, it never will be.
