Are you a real woman? Checklist here

Reading the paper the other day, I was reminded of how fucked up the image of a woman is in our society. The story is about a new plastic sek5 [1. 1 – avoiding the weird google browsing middle aged men] doll. Its in the World section of the paper and amongst stories about Israel, migrant riots in Italy and prisoner abuse in Iran.

What is it, this new invention?

She is a companion. She has a personality. She hears you. She listens to you. She speaks. She feels your touch. She goes to sleep. We are trying to replicate the personality of a person

.

.

What personality are we talking about? Something interesting, I am sure. Some wonderful conversations, late in the night. Right?

cannot walk and its reactions are built into “the three inputs”

.

.

But here is the jest of it, here  is what distinguishes this lump of open inputs plastic from a real woman:

She can’t vacuum, she can’t cook but she can do almost anything else, if you know what I mean

.

So there you have it, my lovely sisters.  I hope your vacuuming and cooking is bloody good, because for the starting price of $US7,000 you can be replaced without anyone noticing.
