Too Much Video Game Violence At E3

Would it be sexist to tell this woman to shut her pie hole? I'm not implying that she bakes pies. I am not implying she belongs in the kitchen. I am simply saying she should shut her mouth-hole-thingy.

I'm no shrinking violet when it comes to video game violence. I cut my teeth on Unreal Tournament, and I am a machine with a shotgun in Halo. But the bloody displays at Microsoft's and Sony's press conferences here at E3 left me horrified -- and depressed that an industry with so many challenges chose to offer so little to its existing and potentially new audiences.
