Amazon game allows practice of sexual abuse

I read on Feministing that Amazon is carrying Stockholm: An Exploration of True Love, a game that allows the player to play the kidnapper who causes his victim to love him by abusing her*. From Feministing:

This includes using poison gas on the victim, sexually assaulting her and using psychological abuse against her in efforts to make her "love" you. Unbelievable.

It should go without saying that Amazon should not support such psychological and sexual abuse of women. The Feministing post encourages people to contact Amazon to tell them it is not acceptable to profit from this kind of thing. I wrote to them and hope you will do the same.
