whenever antis provide ""sources"" about how ""fiction affects reality"" it's literally just articles about how fiction increases empathy. seriously. once an anti was like "here's 15 sources :) can't argue with me now :)" and i went through EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. and it was just "fiction increases empathy" one after the other. NONE proved that problematic media fosters abusive behaviors, which is what antis mean when they say "fiction affects reality." since when is more empathy a BAD thing?
If anything it would be empathy to the victim, which you think would be a good thing.
