In the wake of recent mass shootings, a Kentucky legislator has proposed a tax on both violent video games and young women’s vaginas, claiming each is directly responsible for “unspeakably horrific” behavior in men.
At a Thursday press conference, Wayne County Rep. Jimmy Lee Jackson called for a 5% federal sales tax on all first person shooter games as well as an annual “license fee” of $250 for all women aged 14-19. In Jackson’s proposal, all proceeds would be earmarked for educational programs aimed at teaching families about the “dangers of violent video games and teenage girls’ vaginas and their addictive influence on anti-social behavior in men.”
According to Jackson, “The correlation between violent video games and rampage killers is indisputable. And I think it’s fair to say them there teenage cooters, god damn, they just make ya do all sorts of crazy shit!”
In response to the call for a game tax, a spokesperson for the Entertainment Software Association issued this statement:
“It is important that we consider all avenues, and deal with real facts when searching for answers in the wake of these recent tragedies. Numerous studies in recent years have shown no correlation between video game entertainment and real-life violence. As far as the effects of chasing teenage skirt on the human brain, however, the empirical causality is indisputable. It’s not the games driving boys crazy, people, it’s all that young pussy!”
