Well, this is disheartening. According to a survey recently release by parental advisory site What They Play, parents would rather their kids drink alcohol and watch pornography than have them play certain types of games. Yes, you read that right. Parents would rather come home to their kids drunk and aroused by porno than seeing them off somebody in Grand Theft Auto.*

Also, big changes in attitudes since April: Parents are slightly less concerned about their kids seeing a severed head and slightly more concerned about use of the F-bomb. Both are still less concerning than two men kissing. Hooray, America!

(*Side note: If parents come home to find their kids drunk and aroused by offing someone in Grand Theft Auto, we think they have every right to be concerned.)
