Games have caused an increase in rape, says actual, real psychiatrist

Dr. Carole Lieberman has a Wikipedia page and everything

Just before being identified as a realperson, Lieberman allegedly contributed her thoughts to a Fox News piece titled "Is Bulletstorm the Worst Video Game in the World?" In the article, which isamazingly also real,the actual, board certified psychiatrist is quoted as saying, "The increase in rapes can be attributed in large part to the playing out of [sexual] scenes in video games."

Fox Newsdid not cite any evidence to back upLieberman's quoted claim that rape has increased, or that videogames have caused the alleged increase. There's no indication as to why the quote is even in the article.

Apparently, Dr. Lieberman has also written two books, 'Bad Boys: Why We Love Them, How to Live with Them and When to Leave Them' and 'Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them %26amp; How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets.' These books are real and can actually be purchased, and were actually written by a person named Dr. Lieberman.

According to Dr. Lieberman's real, very pink website, she's "the doctor who helps you stay sane in an insane world," and she has won three real Emmys. Also, she - not an actor playing a character - hasallegedly appeared on CNN, The Today Show, BBC, and other outlets.

Bulletstormreleases on February 22. So far, authorities have not revealed a plan to counteract the rape outbreak which Fox's article seems to suggest may be just around the corner. We recommend you hide your kids, hide your wife.

Note: As Dr. Lieberman's name is misspelled "Carol" in the Fox News article, we have contacted the psychiatrist to verify, again, that she was not made up by Fox News, that the quote is accurate, and that she is not in the pockets of whistle manufacturers.
