    But not you.
    Again, I am not suggesting banning video games.
    I am suggesting that gamers hurt feelings are inconsequential.

    •  I don't get this diary, or your point. (0+ / 0-)

      So, gamers shouldn't respond to attacks or critiques of their favorite media?

      Look, we all have our pet issues.  we all approach politics and issues from different angles.  Myself, I'm fairly neutral on the 'gun' issue.

      Attacking a perspective doesn't make it go away.  If people want to critique criticisms of videogames as a scapegoat, let them.  Maybe it's how they feel involved in the whole debate.  Who knows.

      Scapegoat sorts of ideas are popular because it can provide an explanation for something complex that is simple, understandable by anyone, and pretty easy to fix.  Theories like that presented on mainstream media outlets are only viewed as ridiculous as long as someone is around to address them.  If you give up, it can easily become 'accepted common wisdom'.
