Psychologist: Videogames to blame for rape attacks

Sexual assault is on the rise, and videogames are to blame! In asking the question, "Is Bulletstorm the worst game video game in the world?", FOX News (who else?) has assembled the world's leading experts to find out just how damaging games can be -- or they found some maniac who thinks games cause rape.

“The increase in rapes can be attributed in large part to the playing out of [sexual] scenes in video games,” said psychologist Carol Lieberman. If you're expecting her to back that up, don't hold your breath -- that is literally all she had to offer

Clinical psychologist Dr. Jerry Weichman had a little more: “Violent video games like Bulletstorm have the potential to send the message that violence and insults with sexual innuendos are the way to handle disputes and problems."

Looks like FOX News is gearing up to inadvertently promote the game, which releases on February 22. The full article is a highly entertaining read, especially if you're over 65, stupid, and you think the Moon is held up in the sky by fairy magic.

Now if you'll excuse me, there are some vaginas that have not been raped yet, and Kirby told me I need to "get on dat sh*t!"
