Being a jerk and treating women like crap is ingrained in my biology, man! I couldn't do anything about it if I WANTED to! Making a flash game where you can beat up a woman who had the audacity to, um, make some videos that I don't have to watch or donate money to is, like, evolution and stuff! I have no control. Calling women who game online fat sluts is just the way human men are wired dude! I'm not responsible for anything! BIOTRUTHS.

The fact that most of us are able to repress the more unsavory inclinations of our base nature doesn't change the fact that it is in our base nature. Which means there is no eliminating this sort of behavior in online environments completely - there will always be instances of regression, and in environments that foster anonymity and lack of consequence it can spread fast. The behavior of the game coach in the story is obviously something that can and should be addressed, but you are living in a dream world if you think that we can somehow shield people from ever being exposed to this online. Not gonna happen.
