What is the link between violent video games and aggression? | Pete Etchells | Science | theguardian.com.
And yes, I know that there are some studies that refute these findings......but I think that children are impressionable and are affected by what they see and hear in their environment.

Surely that has to include everything in their environment, parental care, how they react to their peers and many, many other things that can contribute?

There are millions of younger people that have played violent games, watched violent T.V. that aren't violent because of it.
When I was growing up the lads used to play cowboys and Indians, British V the Germans, we died many times every day, but we've grown out of it and I for one in adulthood have never been tempted to kill Indians or Germans.

Less, playing Cowboys and Indians was subtly different.....there was no blood or gore.
The guns had no bullets.
They were games of role playing.....and you might argue that video games are just that too.....but there is strong evidence that these DO change how the immature brain functions.

I would not let a young child play some of the video games that are available.
The violent games have age restrictions on them.......(and I know that this means little to the parents who think they are harmless) but they are there for a reason.

Anyway, does this constitute a thread wander? Or is it permitted because we are still discussing violence?

Re: Hitting a women

A (male) friend of mine ( a bouncer) once tried restraining a drunken (violent) women (by grabbing her arms and legs), she started shouting things like "sexual harassment","inappropriate touching" to the police (it ended up getting pretty serious,but was later dropped).
I assume she only did it in a bid to get my friend (who is no wrong un) in trouble.

Some folk (especially my mate who works the doors) would say if a women's being violent a open handed slap is the cure and that they'd "like to see a woman try to turn a slap to the face into "sexual harassment","inappropriate touching" .
In the case of doormen,police etc if someone is being violent they are expected to,and must display the patience, restraint, and physical resilience of a saint (just adding this into the mix).

Re: Hitting a women

As far as i'm concerned violence in general is perpetuated by poor parental control, there will always be exceptions i.e. people that are nuts, To many let kids do owt fer a peaceful life, and in general leave em to it on internet n mobiles n such stuff, where they can access anything they choose,I defy anyone to tell me that sorta thing is good parenting? In general i think a big influence on kids, are older uns at school, they tend to look up to em, if they are bragging about watching stuff on the net, its a knocking bet young uns will have a sneck.

Well said Cashy.
If there is any possibility of a risk with videos/video games.....and you are a parent, why would you take that risk?
Isn't it better to err on the side of caution?
I know what my answer to that question is.

I don't think you should have liked that, it could be misconstrued as encouraging violence!

The only reason I liked it was because it made me chuckle (as I assume you was kidding) and you didn't really mean you and Margret should actually go and beat folk up,I hope this stops folk making the wrong assumption from me liking your post

The only thing that I regularly beat......is......an egg!
I would be totally useless at fisticuffs. I would rather run away?
Glad the post Less made, made you chuckle. We should all have at least ten of those every day.

Only insofar as it gave them an idea what to wear. The wiring in their head which led them to carry out the atrocity was bad before they saw the film. Yet typically you'll get a whole bunch of detractors whose focus is in the wrong place - usually headed by people who see it as a convenient blame instead of admitting they were so close to the perpetrators that they should have seen the signs and maybe taken some positive action.
im just thankfull guy fawks's powder plot was as long ago as it was or wylie cyote would have got the blame for it

Glad to hear "himself" doesn't "feel the wrath" and, you don't beat him like a egg
I'm also glad I was right about Less and, he isn't one to have a neanderthal like mentality
