On October 22nd, 2014, Canadians across the country were shocked by an attack on our nation's capital.

Why, does gaming industries only shows women as a sexual object in games. I play games personally and I find that most of the game always makes the women character with tight clothe and shows most of their private part, most of the dialogue the character have are one line like” dammit I broke a nail” or” I god blood all over my make up” etc. because of this teenagers see girls as an object then a real person. the moment a girl talks on the mic all the men starts yelling at her to go back to the kitchen ,”you don’t belong here”.
