      The thing is, even if you can say EVERYONE is depicted and portrayed badly in GTAV, when you look at the main players, who are almost all straight white males, they are presented as being “bad” in a number of different ways, they’re not all the same horrible stereotype copy and pasted over and over.  It’s really dishonest to pretend it’s the same thing, especially when straight white cisgender men are in no danger of having more ammo against them - oppressive depictions of transwomen actually have power, showing guys to be assholes doesn’t necessarily.

      Also, this story is truly frightening - restraining your son to dump him in a mental hospital, sending him to, as he describes, hell, just because your own attempts at discipline failed. There’s something deeply sick about that. You say you don’t know what sets him off, but yet it’s pretty obvious what you were doing.
