Some gamers ‘rape’ other avatars in Grand Theft Auto V. Is there no game over to sexism in the industry?
One would think it would take added effort, not less, to make the avatars “see” sex as restriction, instead of identity.
Noted historian Doug Brinkley perhaps best sums up the pair: Both Truman and Bush were avatars of direct action.
1784, "descent of a Hindu deity," from Sanskrit avatarana "descent" (of a deity to the earth in incarnate form), from ava- "down" + base of tarati "(he) crosses over," from PIE root *tere- "to cross over" (see through). In computer use, it seems to trace to the novel "Snowcrash" (1992) by Neal Stephenson.
