Jack Thompson still trying to get Bully pulled

Bully didn’t end up being the extremely violent game Jack Thompson was making it out to be. Instead, the game turned out to be relatively benign and earned a Teen rating, and is now on shelves. However, this isn’t going to stop Jack Thompson and his anti-Bully agenda. Not content with the fact that there is not enough violence in there to get the game pulled, he’s looking for more excuses.

Re: Gay Sex in Bully Video Game; Retail Sale of Sexual Material Harmful to Minors

It turns out that the school violence simulation game Bully also contains homosexual activity between the game’s hero, Jimmy Hopkins, and other male students.

It is my legal opinion that the sale of this game to minors, which is presently occurring at your stores in Florida, violates Florida’s “Sexual Material Harmful to Minors Statute,” Florida Statute 847.102. Each such sale to a minor constitutes a separate felony. Such sales are occurring to children of all ages because of the game’s wholly inappropriate “Teen” rating, as opposed to the “Mature” rating it deserves. A recent Reuters story indicates that parental concern about this is growing, as reportage of this new video game industry scandal is making headlines today around the world.

I already have pending a Florida lawsuit to stop the sale of Bully to minors, and now that we know that it contains not only high levels of unpunished violence but also homosexual acts the lawsuit will be amended to proceed against it and some of you who are defendants therein on these dual grounds.

I suggest strongly that all of you cease and desist all such sales in the United States immediately. Neither the game’s maker, Take-Two, nor the Entertainment Software Rating Board, told you of this homosexual content, which constitutes a fraudulent and deceptive trade practice, in my opinion, on their parts, and I have alerted the Federal Trade Commission to this.

However, now each of you knows, and from now on, from this minute forward, you are all on the hook.

In case you were wondering, the homosexual activity being referred to in the letter is simply 2 boys kissing. While definitely homosexual, unless you’re a homophobe like Jack Thompson there’s really no difference between this and a boy and girl kissing. The idiot is just digging for anything he can to get the game pulled, and hopefully the FTC laughs him out the door.
