toy trivializing rape. WTF is wrong with people?

Shakes is running a long series on the various items available for purchase by men who hate women and think thats just so funny. Its interesting, though I havent linked it before because I didnt have much to say about it. But todays series entry just cant pass without comment.

(click the link for a picture of the toy)

youll note from the packaging that Lusty Linda can utter 8 lusty sayings, which fall into one of two categoriesgood mood or bad mood, controlled by the click of a switch. Says one site (screen cap) that sells Lusty Linda, too bad all women did not have such a switch. Ho ho ho!

In her good mood, Lusty Linda says things like Oh so good, do that again and Yes! In her bad mood, Lusty Linda says things like Ow! and Help! Help! (Though she never loses her grin!) Talk about art imitating life. I dont know about the rest of you gals, but nothing puts me in a bad mood like being raped! Trust Lusty Linda to speak the truth.

2. It's anatomically correct in size for the type of pencildick that would find this funny.

6. omg. I knew I shouldn't have clicked the link...
ugh.

and to think sales may be made to people we work with, someone in the family, people in church, in politics, in schools that think this is funny.
There are people right here on DU that would get a laugh out of this.

8. unfortunatly
there are many in our society who wouldn't even think of this as degrading to women. (unfortunatly some of them are in my family) i am sure this will sell well this holiday season.

9. I wonder how soon Real Dolls will come out with this
choice in sound track?

Personally, I would love it if the type of man who finds this at all amusing will invest in Real Dolls with sound and take themselves off the market permanently. That will decrease the necessity of my friends' daughters having to experience dating worthless men in order to find worthwhile men and will greatly lessen the probability of their marrying a loser.

One bit at Pandagon struck me, "What I find fascinating about this stuff is that the male audience for these toys are probably the same kinds of guys who dwell bitterly over the way Andrea Dworkin pointed out that our society constructs heterosexual intercourse as rape. They pretend that they dwell over this because it shows how supposedly crazy she was, but in actuality, I think theyre bitter because she had their number. Dworkin didnt believe that all sex was rape by definition, but men who think this shit is funny certainly do."

Amen.

10. I'm speechless.
I imagine more than a few troglodytes will have this in their stocking.
