The federal government is spending approximately $434,000 to develop a video game aimed at helping pre-teen girls resist peer pressure to have sex. The avatar based game/social-simulator doesn't have a title yet, but it's being developed by The University of Central Florida and is expected to be complete by 2011.
The idea is to give you points for certain social skills in a virtual world populated by avatars, but you won't just be staring at a screen; you'll be wearing a full motion-capture suit to really put you in the skin of a pre-teen girl at a party or a malt shop or something. Then, boys will approach you and try to get the goods.
Professor Anne Norris of the University of Central Florida describes an interaction in the game like this: "A boy similar in age might approach the person playing the game and ask her to make out or there might be some sexual innuendo."
This will certainly be effective: Once this game becomes wildly popular all over the world, pre-teen girls will finally have the skills they need to resist peer pressure and stop having sex... But what if it works too well? What if the anti-sex messages carry over into her later life, and grown women all over the world won't git down due to the insidious influence of anti-sex mo-cap suit gaming? Society will descend into chaos, just like in Children of Men, and within a single generation, all human life will be extinguished. Good job, University of Florida Professor Anne Norris, you've doomed all of humanity!
Also: Our government seriously spent nearly half a million bucks developing this dumb crap. I could have used that money to buy at least 45 hamburgers, or, if I wanted to promote abstinence, I could have used that money to develop my one-man show. It's geared at stopping teenagers from having sexy-times, and it mostly consists of a slide-show of the inside of Jake "Killer" Gaskill's mouth. I call it "The Canker-Story."
