Federal Gov. Funds Consensual-Girlfriend-Slapping Videogame

January 06, 2015

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), a tax-funded agency of the federal government, awarded a grant for a videogame designer about a Lesbian "consensually slapping her girlfriend in the face."

In its 2013 Spring Grant Announcement, the National Endowment for the Arts said it was awarding $24,000 to the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, "To support the production and exhibition of video games created by the Different Games Fellows. The four fellows are artists/game-designers who will be selected from a group of women, people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ community members groups who find themselves marginalized both as designers and characters in video games." In other words, everyone but white men.

One of these non-white men fellows was Anna Anthropy, "a game creator, writer, artist, teacher, historian and gay witch (who) makes games about polyamory, kink, Dan Savage, space adventures, and is currently using government money to make a game about a lesbian consensually slapping her girlfriend in the face."

This is what you work and pay taxes for in the United States of America.
