Guys and Dolls

July 11, 2007 at 1:59 pm (frightening things, sexism) ()

If you’ve got the heart for it, here’s a short documentary about guys in, um, relationships with “real dolls.” There’s apparently a whole community of them that I’ve been (blissfully) unaware of. I don’t even recommend it, totally, because it’s so disturbing…but leading others to witness things that cause me disturbance is usually how I get over it.

It’s here if you want to watch it.

Be warned. The whole thing is really upsetting; it makes my stomach and head hurt. It’s equally depressing and frightening. I agree with Jessica of Feministing when she writes that “Fucking a sex toy is fine by me. Calling it your girlfriend and wishing that real women were like dolls (in that they can’t move, talk, etc) is not.”
