University of Central Florida blows $430,000 on abstinence simulator

Posted on Tuesday, August 03 2010 @ 00:05:13 CEST by

The University of Central Florida has spend a whopping $434,000 of tax dollars on the creation of an abstinence simulator. The game uses a full motion-capture suit and is intended to teach girls how to reject boys...
Fox News Orlando reports that the University of Central Florida is hard at work developing a videogame geared towards female middle school students intended to teach them skills for handling peer pressure relating to sex. The game places them in social situations and they make choices and score points for demonstrating appropriate responses to offers of sexual activity and innuendo from onscreen avatars.

Now, the ridiculous part. The game uses a full motion-capture suit. They're going to put kids in motion-capture suits and have them act out rejecting male students. I'll grant you, it's a skill that all girls benefit from having, but is the suit really necessary? Not to mention it looks creepy as hell and is costing taxpayers $434,000.

When times are tight, as they are, what on Earth makes these folks think this was a good spending of money? Almost half a million dollars coming out of tuitions and taxpayer money. That's insane. Throw these folks in front of a judge and let them explain in some legal way how they didn't defraud public funds in this ridiculous endeavor.

Waste. And we don't have the money anymore to waste.

I'm serious. The folks who approved this should go to prison.
