Prior to today, I’d never heard of the conservative news site, The Cybercast News Service. What follows may be a reason why. Seems the CNS are taking objection with Mass Effect’s sexual content. Or, at least, the sexual content they think is in Mass Effect, but really isn’t (Rule: No sack, crack, lady nipples or dangly bits = totally kosher). There’s too many entertaining quotes for us to highlight them all, so we’re just going to post the best one. It’s from Cathy Ruse, a lawyer and senior fellow for legal studies at the Family Research Council:

Lady, the only lesson you learn from pursuing a romance in Mass Effect is that it isn’t worth the effort.
