Illinois has passed a new law that will tax strip clubs to make up for budget cuts to rape crisis centers. Now, we’re all about rape crisis centers getting funding but this raises some questions about strip clubs, causation and law. Should strip clubs be the only businesses that are taxed in this way? Is there any science linking strip clubs and rape?

The measure establishes a new tax on the clubs that will raise up to $1 million a year, helping to reverse several years of funding cuts for rape crisis centers. The legislation has also sparked debate over how strong of a link can be drawn between strip clubs and violent crime, and whether those businesses should pay out to fight the problems.
