Bad Names, Bad Games

There’s quite a controversy going on in the UK over a new Wii game called Wii Fit.

Apparently in measuring a child’s BMI (Body Mass Index) it called that child “fat.” Never mind that the game is not for kids, nor designed with kids in mind, the poor girl has apparently suffered severe emotional damage from the inanimate game machine because of it.

I’m left wondering however how the parents will react if another child ever hurls an insult at their daughter. Will they sue? Demand reparations? Ask that the guilty child have a warning tattooed to his or her forehead, or worse yet, be taken out of society?
