I'm trying to get my head around people who thought the severed zombie torso was shameful.
Let me preface this by saying I find the statue gross and I would never own something so gruesome. But I can't see what the harm is that something like it exists. If you don't like it, don't purchase it. Why do we have to project our tastes and standards onto other people?
I don't like violent movies, I can't stand them. And there's some really messed up movies out there. But I don't complain to the movie studios and demand they stop being made because they are outside the boundaries of what I consider tasteful. There's extreme movies and gruesome movie memorabilia out there also. And that's none of my business case it doesn't interest me.
Why shouldn't people be able to have a disgusting gruesome video game prop if they want one? Because you don't like it? That's hardly a sound reason. People were practically saying "I personally find this disgusting, so therefore nobody should be able to have it, and I want to be apologised to".
That's ridiculous to me.
Every day people purchase, consume or participate in stuff I find personally disgusting but as long as they're not hurting anybody, what's the harm?
