Sweden Considers Special Labels for Sexist Video Games

I don't think adding "special" labels to sexist video games is going to work the way these guys want it to. Remember when they put "explicit lyrics" labels on CDs? Same thing is going to happen with this.

A video-game trade group, inspired by the Bechdel Test, will study games' portrayals of women. A government-funded innovation agency in Sweden is considering creating specials label for video games based on whether or not the games’ portrayals of women are sexist.
