It is, it's (arguably) worse. If someone goes into LameStop and buys a used copy for $50 instead of a new copy for $60. That's a ready and willing customer that, in effect, chooses to get the game without giving any benefit to the developer.

That's the stupidest argument I've ever heard, people who make it are idiots. The only thing people don't buy and sell used are condoms and toilet paper. If you want to put video games in the same category as them, go right ahead. However, arguing that I can't sell something I bought because the developers would make more money if I didn't is asinine. I guess I should burn my house down and have the builder make me a new one instead of selling, trash my used car and only buy new, etc etc etc. Ridiculous and absurd.

Yes it is, but it still doesnt change the FACT that used game sales hurt the publisher.

Its not really an argument, you cant argue about facts, because facts are truth.

Its got nothing to do with you personaly. Its got everything to do with the money you have in your pocket and where it ends up though.
Yes its a fucked up world we live in.
