Dayum TiLT.

Maybe the next piece could be on a Fleshlight/Wii tether game?!?

No problem whatsoever. In fact, thank you. I appreciate the joke and I think it's good for people to know that reasonable people out there are able to see something for what it is.
We need to hang out. It's been too long. Maybe we could hit up a confessional or something.

I personally thought, "she will leave her crimson innocence on your junk" was the worst. Heck, it's right up there with, "I'm coming inside of you Otter!"

Awaiting constructive criticism objective in nature...

Also. I had five, count 'em five, women read the piece before posting. Let it be noted that none of them kicked me in the nuts.

I'm sorry to all of the offended readers out there.

RapeLay was presented exactly as is, a despicable “game” that should be avoided and should be seen as nothing more than interactive smut.
While preparing for the piece, seemingly every search for, “most offensive video game ever” had RapeLay at the top. So I went with it.

Yes there were crass descriptions, double entendres and maybe too much real estate given to it altogether, but there was an effort to explain the fact that this was gaming at its extreme. And that extreme is very very unhealthy for everyone.

Making light of rape is bad and I'm sorry if anyone took it as that. I was hoping to expose the pieces of shit who do. But alas, this was a humor piece and that's a dangerous line. Some think I crossed it, others don't.

The point for its inclusion was to exhibit this extreme and speak to its moral depravity, albeit with comedy. And everyone knows and loves to joke about Custer's Revenge. RapeLay demonstrates the tragic evolution, and having that juxtaposition could show that maybe a silly cartoon can fuel a dangerous progression. (Both games have the same premise, right?)

Pardon my sense of humor. I'm not going to sit here and tell the detractors to lighten up, but please understand that I've been asked to try something different for the site. Something that may jolt a few. But I hope it's known that what I've done does not represent GT as a whole and that these off-color subjects will be handled separately from GT’s flagship style. I appreciate the opportunity and I appreciate any well-meaning criticism.

***With regards to  - "The article was amateur, man." - "not particularly well written" - et al.
Several graduate writing students and professional writers read this before posting, along with Ron and Mike. Feel free to expand on this criticism so I can do something with it.

***Regarding – SensuousLettuce's "Classy broad" comment...
My “Classy broad” and I live a lovely life together. Some say she's a lot like a young Betty White. She's cute, sweet and has an eclectic sense of humor that allows her enjoy all kinds of things that may fall out of the realm of orthodox decency. Maybe you could rejoice in the fact that our two hell-bound souls have found each other so we're out of the mating pool for you to swim freely.
