I didn’t have an issue with Medium for the whole “abuse victims becoming abusers themselves” thing because that’s sadly true in real life, R Kelly comes to mind as he was molested by a family member when he was little(And he said he hit puberty very early as a result) so it’s sadly not surprising that he turned out the way he did(one of his victims even said she felt sorry for him because he was a victim too)so I can’t really condemn the game for saying something that’s true in real life.
I’m personally more pissed off at that Sia movie “Music” for promoting the use of a restraining technique that has actually killed people with autism in real life(sad because the rest of the film isn’t bad, the main character reminded me a lot of people I went to school with, but because of that one scene I can’t recommend paying for it)
