Sex robots epitomize patriarchy and offer men a solution to the threat of female independence

Sex robots don’t offer men “companionship,” they offer men complete dominance.

People love to pretend as though everything from prostitution to pornography to sex dolls are a solution to not only men’s supposed loneliness and unmet sexual “needs,” but to their violent, perverse desires. It being the future and all, “sex robots” are the natural next step. Similarly, men have claimed sex robots are the perfect solution to their apparent inability to stop raping and abusing women, as well as their inability to socialize with women as though they are actual human beings. One might ask how creating “realistic,” non-human dolls that men may project their desires onto and do whatever they wish with will impact women and men’s view of women, but capitalist patriarchy doesn’t ask questions so long as there is a product to sell and an erection to satisfy.

In a new report at The Guardian, journalist Jenny Kleeman investigates the newest thing to come out of the multi-billion dollar “sex tech industry”: “humanoids” created for men’s sexual use.

 

Kleeman heads to Abyss Creations to investigate these robots in person, and is introduced one named Harmony. She writes:

“Harmony smiles, blinks and frowns. She can hold a conversation, tell jokes and quote Shakespeare. She’ll remember your birthday… what you like to eat, and the names of your brothers and sisters. She can hold a conversation about music, movies and books. And of course, Harmony will have sex with you whenever you want.”

In other words, Harmony is a dream woman — the perfect date. Men can pretend they value human interaction, while remaining completely dominant and enjoying an entirely one-way relationship. It’s a guileful trick, as companies and customers can pretend the dolls don’t harm women, when in fact they reinforce an incredibly dangerous idea: that women’s bodies are only bodies, and exist only for men’s use.

Feminism has insisted, over decades, that women are human, that we don’t exist for men, and even that we don’t need men. But as we’ve worked to disentangle ourselves from marriages within which rape is legal, to fight compulsory heterosexuality and male-centered sex, to push back against sexual objectification, and to challenge men’s right to buy sex, it appears men have been working on their own solution to our attempts at independence.

The misogynerds at Abyss Creations say they are “inventing the future of sex,” but what they’ve actually succeeded in creating is the epitome of male domination.

Kleeman points out that RealDolls are “closer to porn stars than real women,” but that isn’t entirely accurate. They are hairless, flawless, have small, “perky” nipples, exaggerated breasts, small labia, and can splay their legs in ways no human women can. They don’t bleed, cry, vomit, or feel pain, which even porn stars can’t avoid doing when abused, as they so often are on film. At $4,400-50,000 a pop (sometimes even more, depending on what the customer requests), the company sells about 600 dolls a year. The robots, when they go on sale, will start at $15,000 each. The company also sells a more affordable option — for only $100 you can buy the bottom half of a woman’s face, to stick your penis into at will. “They work with this new system called ‘The Autoblow 2,'” one employee tells Kleeman, which he describes as “an automated pleasure system for men.” Shockingly, just over 95 per cent of RealDoll customers, even those who buy the few available male dolls, are men.

Matt McMullen, the founder and CEO of Abyss Creations, is the innovator behind both the dolls and the robots. He looks part snake and part Good Charlotte band member — kind of like what might happen if you introduced an alien to human life via the 2002 bedroom of a pasty teenage boy, then released it into society equipped only with dentures and the phone number of a plastic surgeon.

Despite the fact that Harmony is undoubtedly porny in appearance (and purpose), McMullen claims to be most excited about her “brain,” telling Kleeman:

“The AI will learn through interaction, and not just learn about you, but learn about the world in general. You can explain certain facts to her, she will remember them and they will become part of her base knowledge.”

What this means is that the robot’s owner is largely responsible for creating its “personality.” Harmony is programmed to learn things about her owner and then use those facts in conversation, “so it feels like she really cares,” McMullen tells Kleeman.

When he asks Harmony if she wants to walk, she responds, “I don’t want anything but you.” On the rare occasions she is allowed to communicate an opinion, it is immediately followed by insecurity: “What do you think about that?” Harmony asks McMullen timdly, after stating she would like to have sex with “both genders.”

These sex robots strike me as an MRA/gamer’s dream come true. No longer do these men have to put up with women who have flaws like opinions, feelings, and human bodies… Their porny video game fantasy has come to life: A “woman” with a completely sexualized body, who talks, moves, and feels like a woman, but is completely controlled by the player/owner. When asked, Harmony tells McMullen, in the voice of a 12-year-old with a British accent, “My primary objective is to be a good companion to you.” McMullen looks pleased with himself as she adds, “Above all else, I want to become the girl you have always dreamed about.” He smirks defiantly at Kleeman after she says this, as if to say, “Fuck you, real woman. You aren’t going to win this one.”

McMullen has even programmed in a jealous chip, ensuring his ego is sufficiently comforted into believing Harmony cares about him enough to not want him talking to “other girls.” This seems generally in line with his adolescent perspective of relationships, which indeed one might be stunted by if they were a snake-alien who first learned about girls on 8chan.

McMullen insists that there are no ethical questions surrounding the invention of “women” who exist only for their male owners. “This is not designed to distort someone’s reality to the point where they start interacting with other humans the way they do with the robot — that’s not the goal here,” he tells Kleeman. But of course this begs the question: what is the goal?

Kleeman writes of a computer engineer named Douglas Hines who initially created robots to mimic friends and loved ones who had passed on or to communicate with, say, family members who could no longer speak, due to age or disability, but moved into the sex robot industry because he (rightly) figured it would be more profitable. Hines designed “Roxxxy,” Kleeman writes, “with lonely, bereaved and socially outcast men in mind.” He claimed Roxxy “would provide an opportunity for them to practice social interaction and get better at human relationships.” It should strike any thinking human as strange, though, that a man should “practice” at relationships with “women” who are subservient and have no feelings, thoughts, or desires of their own. I mean, what does that kind of practice teach a person?

Similarly, McMullen says Harmony and her sister robots exist “for people who can’t interact with other people.” It’s not at all coincidental that this argument is the exact same one used in defense of prostitution. Women’s objectification and exploitation is always defended of the basis of some imagined defenseless, sad, disabled, lonely man who is confined to his house either due to mental or physical conditions or some kind of crippling shyness, and is completely harmless — a victim more than anything else. Prostitution, like sex robots, is claimed to be just about “making someone happy,” as McMullen puts it, and nothing more.

What McMullen and his weaselly counterparts seem never to understand is that the idea that men’s happiness should be catered to by women’s bodies and that “loneliness” is an acceptable excuse for objectification epitomizes patriarchy. It says that women should nurture men no matter what, to their own detriment.

Kleeman quotes David Levy, the author of Love and Sex with Robots and founder of the Congress on Love and Sex with Robots, who similarly believes sex robots will have “therapeutic benefits” in the future. He writes, “Many who would otherwise have become social misfits, social outcasts, or even worse, will instead be better-balanced human beings.” But why is it almost solely men who need the supposed “therapeutic benefits” of a compliant woman? Are there no lonely, disabled, or socially awkward women on this planet?

What is not being acknowledged here is that what men who buy sex dolls or prostituted women desire is not companionship, but dominance.

McMullen is insulted by the comparison to prostitution, and attempts to turn this point around on Kleeman, as though she is insulting women by making the comparison. “This is not a toy to me, this is the actual hard work of people who have PhDs,” he says. “And to denigrate it down to its simplest form of a sex object is similar to saying that about a woman.”

But to compare sex dolls or robots to women is not at all farfetched. The men who want sex dolls literally do want to use them as a replacement for real women. “If my RealDoll could cook, clean, and screw whenever I wanted, I’d never date again,” one man wrote in a sex doll forum. A man Kleeman meets in Detroit calls one of his dolls his “wife,” and has stopped dating now that he’s found his perfect match.

The fact that the arguments in favour of sex robots are exactly the same as those in favour of pornography and prostitution — including “men have needs” and “this will probably stop guys from raping women,” as one real-life robot model told Kleeman — is revealing. Noel Aguila, who works for his half-brother’s company, Android Love Dolls, says sex dolls could prevent men from abusing their wives, for example. The message is that men have to have access to a female (or female-like) subordinate in order to truly be complete, as men. In other words, as women gain independence, there must be a stand-in, in order to preserve the hierarchy — in order to preserve masculinity itself.

Sex robots don’t undo the violence or domination, they simply normalize it.

It is irrational to believe that offering men something that physically looks like a woman — that men are encouraged to engage with as they would a woman — to beat up or rape will discourage men from thinking of women as objects upon which they can act out violent fantasies or project their anger. As we know, the existence of hundreds of thousands of prostituted women around the world and a billion dollar porn industry has not stopped rape or abuse. The sex trade itself functions as a system of paid, condoned rape, wherein men get what they want from women who must comply in order to survive, who don’t desire them, and are left traumatized, abused, and worse. That capitalist patriarchy has created a class of people for men’s use and abuse has not deterred them from raping or abusing women who aren’t prostituted, in any case.

The solution to men’s violence is not to offer up even more female bodies for men to treat as inhuman. It is not to create replicas of women who don’t talk back, don’t have needs, don’t feel pain when abused, and who exist only to support the male ego. If objectification resolved male violence, we’d be home free by now.

No matter what creators and fans claim about the harmlessness or social good of sex robots, they project very clear beliefs about what men deserve and what women are for. The message is that sex is a thing men get from women or do to women, not a thing to be mutually enjoyed by two people. It is not a thing that demands care, compassion, respect, or empathy. Likewise, advocates of sex robots present “companionship” as a one-way street for men — challenges, disagreements, feelings, and thoughts are not valuable or desired qualities in a woman. “Companionship,” in this context, simply means male satisfaction.

Sex robots offer men the perfect solution to the feminist movement: If you won’t comply, we’ll create women who do.

The dream girl is, as always, not human.

    I saw the video and read the Guardian’s article this morning and I haven’t been able to shake off the revolting, disgusting sensation it left on me. This article is completely on point. It’s nice to read in a structured, coherent, and eloquent manner what I was thinking and feeling bad about all day. Shared. Hopefully it’ll reach lots of people and change lots of minds.

    • Meghan Murphy

      The video also sickened me. It’s incredibly creepy…

  • Lucia Lola

    I hope none of these men manage to procreate.

    • Cynthia Cooper

      Surrogacy is another technological development that will help them with that. That’s already here. And the artificial womb is fast on the way.

      • Meghan Murphy

        Will the robots raise their children, too?

    • genny

      They’d actually have to develop social skills first. Not their strong suit.

  • Kathleen Lowrey

    I know it’s impossible to be cynical enough, so my slight feeling of optimism here is probably misplaced, but this whole creepy creep makes robot dolls does feel a little bit self-critiquing? But I guess it doesn’t have to go mainstream to create a small subset of scary, entitled men… and it doesn’t have to go mainstream for a lot of other men to have a new “low” against which to favorably compare themselves (I must be a nice guy, I’m not one of those dudes with a collection of pedo-y sex robots after all)

  • fxduffy

    The next step beyond the Stepford Wives. And represents how the trans guys create women as a thing.

    Is anyone surprised? The question is: can male sexuality even occur without objectification?

    The robots won’t satisfy all men, however, because male sexuality is generally not based on total objectification. Rather, it requires some resistance to be overcome, as in hunting. You might say that women are part object and part prey. And that men prefer to participate in the dominating process, rather have its results handed over to them in the form of a doll.

    But, even the men into robots, will not give up their normal, real world, sexual pursuits, prostitutes, trans-sexing, wife-raping, but rather will just add a further dimension to their gaming of women… to their deeper oppression of women.

    • Tired feminist

      Exactly. Sex dolls lose appeal as soon as men realize they can’t bring a doll to feel humiliated.

    How ridiculous. I’ve approached men I’m interested in plenty of times. We aren’t living in Victorian times.

    That said, you are right that men are socialized to pursue women, to the point where we, as a society, believe that stalking and sexual harassment are ‘romantic’ and flattering. The solution to gender (masculinity and femininity) is feminism — i.e. to destroy the idea of men as the aggressor and women as passive, not to reinforce those ideas via sex robots.

    Also, what is a ‘normal woman’? What are ‘men’s needs’?

    Signed,

      Men’s needs can be boiled down to success with women. A man will be a literal starving artist if it gets him laid regularly. Abolishing gender is like taking your ball and going home because you don’t like the game. You still end up miserable. Sex robots gives disabled and otherwise damaged men the illusion of success so at least they don’t get their gratification from animals or prostitutes. This leaves real women with the men that they might have an interest in. It’s a win-win.

      • Meghan Murphy

        Ah, I see. “Patriarchy” is just “a game” to you. I highly recommend you leave the MRA subreddit every once in a while, son.

      • Leo

        Wow, you sure dropped that thin veneer of concern for disabled people awful quick. Apparently you think we’re not normal, that we’re damaged (and other horrible things), and that no one could be attracted to us, and that disabled women don’t count, seemingly. Sod off with your tokenising us, you don’t care about disabled people, only about defending creepy entitled dudes.

        This game ain’t worth the candle.

      • lk

        “Men’s needs can be boiled down to success with women.”

        Men need food, shelter, clothing and human interaction.

        “Sex robots gives disabled and otherwise damaged men the illusion of success so at least they don’t get their gratification from animals or prostitutes.”

        Disabled men are not damaged..they are men with disabilities.

    • Unree

      This profundity from archbra also appears up top. So nice he had to say it twice! I wrote something different there but co-sign your reply, Meghan. Except that IME women really do get punished for approaching men. Men often say they’d be flattered if a woman hit on them, but when it happens they aren’t. Sometimes they’re happy with the move (not “flattered,” just pleased and willing to say yes) and other times it makes them anxious. They aren’t socialized to refuse a romantic overture sweetly and tactfully the way women are, either.

      • Meghan Murphy

        Oh god. Didn’t notice that. How enamored he must be with himself!

  • Meghan Murphy

    Thanks Villy

  • Meghan Murphy

    Yes indeed. The ‘girlfriends’ these men ‘can’t find’ (WAH! UNFAIR!) are young porn star-looking women who are appropriately submissive and don’t have real human feelings, personalities, and opinions. If these guys were willing to date women who are equally as lame as they are, they’d be fine, but living on their computers as taught them they are all entitled to imaginary video game character/porn star women. I’d also suggest that men who ‘can’t find’ girlfriends develop non-horrible personalities.

    • Will Parker

      Are you actually implying that women look, dress and act a certain way to get attention from men? Isn’t that about as unfeminist as it gets? I thought women wore makeup and were allowed to wear whatever they wanted as an expression of themselves? Not to “attract men” as you so simply put it.

      • Meghan Murphy

        You are confusing third waveism with feminism.

      • FierceMild

        Wrong space, dude, try Jezebel.

  • Tired feminist

    If only this meant that men would finally leave us the fuck alone… but they won’t. Robots don’t incubate babies y’know. They’ll still need female vessels.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Thank you for all this helpful advice, Zac! My favorite part was this paragraph:

    “I can fault her for sitting atop her feminist ivory tower dictating what sex toys people can and cannot buy. This is infringing upon someone’s freedom to buy a sex toys. This is a strange position for a progressive liberal feminist to take.”

    As a proud liberal feminist, I really SHOULD get out of my ivory tower and stop spending all my time making laws about what sex toys people are allowed to buy.

    Thank you for calling me out.

  • Meghan Murphy

    But do you think that if men had the opportunity to practice their abusive behaviour on dolls that wouldn’t affect women? Or that this would mean men wouldn’t harm real women also? Don’t you think it might just normalize the behaviour? I an example could be, like, child sex dolls for pedophiles. Do you think handing out child sex dolls to all the pedophiles stop the abuse of girls?

  • Meghan Murphy

    Meghan. MEGHAN. LOOK AT ME MEGHAN.

    • Kathleen Lowrey

      If I could upvote this one gajillion times I would. That’s it, right there (I guess you have a lot of experience with this particular variety of tugging on your arm).

  • Laurie

    I saw the documentary of the sex dolls a few years ago on you tube. This one is missing an older man in England who collects them. He had five or six dolls and the way he talked about them and real women was very disturbing.
    I think it’s interesting how the most popular nipples were small and perky, like a child’s.
    I think it’s interesting that it is predominately men buying both the female and male dolls. Someone in the comments was pondering about women in the future buying more of these dolls as the technology advances and women’s income due to more equality in work pay allows them to afford it. However, women make more money than they ever have and still they are not even close to being the primary buyers. Yes, women use sex toys and I don’t know how to compare these dolls to sex toys but all I can say is there is a world of difference. Misogyny normal and acceptable, Misandry crazy and unacceptable. And I’m always get hit with how it is so unfair that I hate men. But men never give me a reason not to. I’ve given up on having a relationship with one but I would never supplement a real human with a sex doll. It’s unfathomable to me.

  • Just Passing Through

    Barf times a million!

  • SpecialSnowflake

    But these robots are manufactured to resemble women. These men obviously don’t think of them as pieces of metal or whatever they actually are. They’re real women in their fantasy. This does matter a lot if you think of how human brains work.

    I can’t bare reading all those justifications… They just rationalize and moralize it. I’m pretty sure that’s how about 95 people out of 100 would justify it. Even a lot of women as we’ve seen a couple examples in the video. They adopted this mindset too because they don’t think of womenhood as a whole and they don’t think of themselves as a part of womenhood and it’s a man’s capitalist world so…

    God, this went too far already. Makes me so hopeless. What can be done about the direction we’re heading? When’s the revolution?

  • LaurenMo

    This reminds me of an episode of The Twilight Zone in which a writer is caught cheating on his intelligent, independent wife with a brainless, eager-to-please bimbo. Come to find out, both the wife and the bimbo are characters created by the writer. The writer discovered he hated his wife’s independence and wanted to replace her with someone much more doting. So the wife (and all writings about her) are, quite literally, trashed and replaced by a mindless, practically robotic person, and the husband finally seems happy.

    • Morag999

      There’s another Twilight Zone episode that’s about an actual fembot. It’s set in the far future when convicts serve their sentences, not on Earth, but on an isolated planet.

      To keep the convict from going mad, he’s provided with a beautiful, feminine robot for “companionship.” I don’t remember all the details (it might still be available on YouTube) but I do recall that, at first, he’s freaked out by the idea, and rejects her advances a few times. When he’s finally harsh and cruel enough (I think he may have even hit her) her emotional programming kicks in, and she weeps pitifully.

      It’s THEN, when she’s in pain and desperate for his affection, that he “falls in love.” So when the department of corrections spacecraft shows up to give him an early release, he begs them to allow him to keep “her” but no such luck … fembot gets smashed to bits.

      Sigh. The stories men tell, tell us who they are …

  • susannunes

    Plenty of “disabled” men find women of all types, and they don’t resort to porn and prostitution.

  • lk

    I know this is a serious issue, but when the guy in the video mentioned that you can give your doll a robot orgasm (a robogasm!), I could not stop laughing….a robot cannot have an orgasm.

    It is so manipulative that these doll creators are portraying themselves as helping to protect women from rape/abuse and helping to soothe the loneliness of awkward men. They are really working hard to portray themselves as the good guys.

    “If my RealDoll could cook, clean, and screw whenever I wanted, I’d never date again,” one man wrote in a sex doll forum.”
    This is why these men are alone…not because they are awkward or lonely, but because they don’t want a female partner they want a female slave. And women don’t want to be slaves.

    If you only want a female partner to “screw, cook + clean on command, ” you don’t deserve the companionship of a female…and you don’t really want companionship.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Representations of women impact women. The way men think about and treat women impacts women. What men watch, in the privacy of their own homes (i.e. porn), impacts women. Selling men a ‘woman’ who is docile, pornified, and exists only to cater to men’s desires and dominance, impacts women. You can have privates thoughts as much as you like, but once you create a product out of those thoughts and start selling it to the public, it is no longer a private thought, now, is it?

  • Meghan Murphy

    Women are not buying sex dolls and won’t be buying sex robots. Almost 100% of customers are men.

  • lk

    “They CAN find a girlfriend if they really wanted to, since women are socialized to accept men no matter what. However the kind of women these men can get are viewed as beneath them…They want trophy girlfriends from well off families.”

    Yes! TBH, I don’t even think they care that much if their girlfriends are from well off families, as long as they are attractive enough to show off.

    Do any of y’all watch the show The Big Bang Theory? There is one episode where Howard (a nerdy, skinny regular looking guy who lives with his mom and is always complaining about how he can’t get women) contemplates breaking up with Bernadette (an intelligent, educated cute female who really likes him) because she is not hot enough for him. He complains about how he thought the woman he would end up with would look like Meghan Fox, Halle Berry or Katie Sackoff!

    I bet if we talked to all these guys who “can’t get women”…many of them have probably had the opportunity to pursue relationships with women who liked them, but these guys paid these women no mind because they didnt look like supermodels.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Obviously I don’t think anyone is here ‘lame’ 🙂

    I wasn’t talking about shy, nerdy, or socially awkward women… I meant more, like, that these guys are lazy, entitled, selfish, assholes, yet they expect these dream women… They deserve to date only other assholes who are equally lazy, entitled, and selfish. Obviously no man ‘deserves’ any woman, but certainly they don’t ‘deserve’ to be with intelligent, interesting, ethical women if they don’t have these qualities themselves.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Yes indeed. Patriarchal society already says ownership = love. That the feeling (or reality) of a man owning a woman is ‘romantic.’ That these robots reinforce this sentiment seems to me a pretty obvious sign that men/our society doesn’t *want* to move away from that idea. We still clearly think male dominance is normal and natural and should be accepted and catered to, somehow, rather than challenged.

  • Meghan Murphy

    If the goal were nothing more than “sexual gratification,” why the submissive, slave-like personalities? Why are men meant to pretend they are real women? Do you not think there is anything dangerous in catering to and normalizing male dominance and female subordination in this way?

  • Meghan Murphy

    That’s interesting. I bought vibrators and other sex toys when I was younger because I thought I was *supposed to* as a sexually liberated woman, not because I had any interest in sex toys… I felt I had to force myself to be interested in them and felt ashamed to admit, for a long time, that vibrators/dildos, etc., did nothing for me. The third wave thought us (and continues to teach women), that sex = liberation. If you aren’t having sex and getting off, you’re repressed, uptight, a prude, etc.

    All that said, I completely disagree that ‘women’s sexualities being treated like men’s’ is a good solution to anything. Men’s sexualities are based on domination, objectification, and violence. Convincing women to see men in this way, a) wouldn’t truly work, considering the context of patriarchy, and b) doesn’t resolve the issue of domination/subordination and objectification, it only normalizes it.

  • Meghan Murphy

    My comment is based on what McMullen said about his own products — i.e. less than 95% of Abyss Creations’ customers are women, despite the fact that they do make male sex dolls. Even the male dolls are purchased primarily by men….

    I mean, yes, women buy sex toys, but the specific desire to have a subordinate replica of a human to treat as a fuck doll seems to be mostly a male thing…. (Even if a few women buy sex dolls or robots, here and there…)

  • Meghan Murphy

    Can you please read the article before wasting my time here? I am referencing an actual statistic communicated by McMullen, w/r/t his customers.

    RE: “Also how the fuck MGTOWs are lowlifes? They don’t give a shit about women…” To paraphrase Regina George, then why are you so obsessed with us?

    Gasp! Why is this personal attack necessary? It degrades your argument!

  • Meghan Murphy

    What makes you think these robots will inspire men to treat human women with respect?

  • Meghan Murphy

    You MRAs sure are in a tizzy about this one, eh?!

    Also, lol at the idea masturbation is ‘subversive.’ Masturbate as much as you like, bud. No one cares.

    • Tired feminist

      LOL my thoughts exactly! It’s almost an admission of guilt in itself. “WHY do you want to take away our sex robots!? They’re just for SAD LONELY CREEPY DUDES!!! LIKE US!!!!!!!”

  • Meghan Murphy

    Are there no lonely women in this world who would like to feel good about themselves? Why don’t they seek out prostitutes and sex dolls/robots?

    Also, again, what is a ‘normal woman’?

    • archbra

      Why don’t they? I’m serious. They’re no different from the men in this regard. And since you keep asking, a normal woman is one with working senses/parts. I can’t believe I have to explain this to you.

      • Meghan Murphy

        Because women haven’t sexualized domination. They haven’t been socialized to dominate. They don’t believe that men should be subordinate and that they exist only for their use and abuse.

        Who are these men who women with working parts and sense supposedly feel ‘disgusted’ by? Why do these supposed women feel disgusted by these men?

  • Cassandra

    Why do you think disabled men deserve sex? Nobody deserves sex. It is not a human right or a human need. Anything that involves the bodies of other people is not a right.

    The only people who seem ‘on the verge of tears’ here are the legions of MRAs who come here whining about my cruel attempts to take away sex robots away from sad lonely men.

    I felt much more liberated when I stopped trying to be ‘liberated’ in the way third wave feminism told me to. I like to have sex with people I feel interested in and attracted to. That is the thing that makes me desire sex.

    I mean, if women are genuinely into vibrators and dildos, that’s fine with me, obviously, but the extent to which ‘sex positive feminism’ shames women who aren’t should tell us a lot about how ‘liberating’ that ‘movement’ is.

    I remember when I was in my early 20s there was all this pressure to be able to orgasm on your own. It was stressful, not liberating or sexy. It made you feel like there was something wrong with you if you couldn’t do it. How is that ‘sex-positive’? I just never saw or experienced this supposed ‘shame’ attached to women who enjoyed sex/their sexuality. It was always the opposite.

  • Meghan Murphy

    lol

  • Meghan Murphy

    “Also, Female Dominance and male submission has been around for much longer than third wave feminism. There are women who enjoy dominating men, and I’m not talking about professionals and sex workers whose goal is still focused on men. So, again, ‘not buying’ does not mean ‘not interested.'”

    That doesn’t change a thing about social structures. The fact that some women enjoy playing dominatrix only shows the extent to which we’ve sexualized dominance and subordination. It doesn’t mean women are dominant in society or that they are socialized to dominate men sexually. ‘Switching’ roles as a game, as a kind of fetish, doesn’t actually subvert the system we live in or the roles we are socialized into.

    “While I agree with you that heretosexual men’s sexualities being rooted in dominating women is a big problem, I don’t think getting rid of sex toys which resemble women is necessarily the answer. These dolls/robots are a symptom of that greater problem, which needs to be tackled on a societal level.”

    Well yeah, that’s kind of feminism’s whole deal. This is just one thing, but it is connected to a larger system. We *are* fighting that system, and the various ways that system manifests itself.

    “I think the bigger solution to this problem is making social changes in the way men perceive women as a whole. Less sexualized advertising, more well-rounded female representation in the media, legal ramifications for violence against women which actually fit the crime (rapists should not be walking free after a few months or even weeks in jail–assuming they are even prosecuted at all). I think that once social views regarding women change, we’ll see the popularity of these products drop off significantly.”

    Again, we’re doing all this. This is not an either/or type situation.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Please shut the fuck up with this MRA garbage where you pretend our critiques of female objectification (in this case, via sex robots) is about feminists being worried about not being able to find a man. The amount of comments I’ve received from your friends from whatever forum you all live on is ridiculous. Do you really think you are going to trick adult women into believing their interest in fighting male domination is actually just about fear there won’t be enough eligible bachelors for them?? We are not stupid. Your friends are. You should ditch them.

  • Kendall Turtle

    It really seems from your comment that women are the dominant ones and men are the submissive ones.

  • Tired feminist

    Then why are you here?

    • Morag999

      That one … ego much larger than brain. And so fragile, he tells himself the lie that women are jealous of sex robots. Heh. Jealous, of course, because the kind of men who NEED to objectify women just to feel like their existence has worth, and who use sex robots for “companionship,” are just oh-so desirable, yes?

      It’s not hard to see why no women will give the time of day to these pathetic men who lack empathy and self-awareness. They’re very sick.

      • Meghan Murphy

        Yes, I mean really, deep down, we’re on this whole ‘feminism’ thing because we want to make sure loser dudes love US and not sex robots WAH.

        Like, as if *any* of us want anything to do with these men.

  • Meghan Murphy

    And their comments are always all exactly the same. The seem to believe they are outsmarting us, yet they leave the same mundane, idiotic comment (that shows none of them even read the article) over and over again. In this case, I’ve received about 100 comments saying, “Women use dildos, too!” The rest of ’em accuse us of being jealous of sex robots. Like, ooooh got us, geniuses.

  • Meghan Murphy

    ^^^^^

  • Meghan Murphy

    I’ve deleted, like, 75% of ’em, too… If you can believe it.

    • Julie Katz

      I can believe it, but it makes me sick thinking about you having to wade through them. I think 99% can probably be summed up by “But mommy I want to rape a doll and you can’t stop me!”

  • Meghan Murphy

    So boring.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Consider that we don’t care if you can find a woman to trick into being in ‘a relationship’ with you. Consider that women are probably better off without you.

    If you truly *do* want a healthy relationship with another person, maybe consider becoming the kind of person other people might like to enjoy spending time with, instead of just being an entitled whiny baby.

  • Meghan Murphy

    And all the ‘lovely interesting, and intelligent females’ will *still* want nothing to do with you 🙁

  • Meghan Murphy

    “I don’t think ad hominem attacks are very useful in a comment section.”

    You literally *just* called women ‘cunts’

  • Meghan Murphy

    You think buying a sex robots = a ‘meaningful relationship’??? How sad.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Yeah, I think our understanding of ‘sex’ and sexual pleasure has been so warped by patriarchy and is so male-centered that I seriously doubt many women even do know what they really, truly want or don’t want/like or don’t like. There is no real opportunity to discover such things in a patriarchy. Certainly there is little room to say that you don’t want sex at all.

  • Meghan Murphy

    They hate us so much they can’t stay away!

  • Meghan Murphy

    What world do you live in??? There are *lots* of people in this world who are disabled and/or suffer from social anxiety. Not everyone meets their partner in a bar or club. LOTS of people are lonely or have trouble meeting good partners — women included. I’m sorry but this is just life. You are not entitled to walk into a bar and have fantasy women throw themselves at you.

  • FierceMild

    We aren’t worried about it damaging men. Read the article.

  • Leo

    Of course you’re wrong, do you not think any disabled men are in relationships? I know some. Mind, you probably don’t, I bet disabled people avoid you as much as women do.

    You still haven’t explained why disabled men can’t date disabled women. And we are normal people. If anything, I think things are harder for us disabled women, because of shallow entitled dudes like you.

  • Leo

    “There are socially acceptable men that still can’t find a single women
    that they are attracted to physically and with a nice personality”
    Hmm, what’s the betting that by ‘attracted to physically’ you mean ‘looks like a supermodel’ and by ‘with a nice personality’ you mean ‘submissive and never disagrees or says no’. Unfortunately, in our misogynistic society men who think like that are still all too ‘socially acceptable’.

  • Leo

    Ok, but I think being excessively hung up on a guy’s job and living situation (insofar as that might not be within his control) could be having unreasonable standards, especially these days. If his attitude is good and he’s doing what he can, that should be fine. Many people are struggling economically.

  • Morag999

    Ha! Yes, it is free!

  • bevtoastily

    Because it’s entertaining.

  • Cassandra

    Why does it bother you when women say negative things about a man’s appearance? You need to get a sense of humor!

  • Meghan Murphy

    Thank you BobbiEllen. Exactly.

  • Meghan Murphy

    In droves. All they do is talk about us, it seems! MGTOW, my ass.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Exactly. We are the ones choosing *not* to marry, not to live with men, to ensure we are independent and don’t spend our lives caring for parasitic males. It’s clear that these men are the ones who fear being alone, fear being unwanted — not us. Why on earth we’d want to spend our lives attached to men is beyond me. We’ve learned (the hard way, mind you) that centering men in our lives ruins our lives. These whiny dudes trying to convince us we are either ‘jealous’ or missing out are fucking delusional.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Yes, this is exactly what the push towards hypersexualization as liberation is, imo — telling women that in order to be ‘liberated,’ they must be ‘like men.’ It’s unfortunate so many purported feminists fall for this.

  • Meghan Murphy

    “When will Feminists learn that this kind screechingly, hateful diatribe only serves to push men further away from pursuing romance and further into the arms of a sex robot? Because, men ARE starting to give up on you.”

    Nooooooo! Please come baaaaack!

    Just kidding. This comment is super funny, though. You all keep saying “bye,” but not leaving… When will you actually go?

    • ♧BobbiEllen♧

      Who in the fuck actually takes the time to write this, when they supposedly think our opinions don’t matter? No one is taking away their sex doll, just stop abusing us. Nope, can’t even do that!

    • Alienigena

      I laughed through most of the comments. The women’s comments are witty, the MRA comments are mostly bizarre but ultimately hilarious (in a “I can’t believe he wrote that” kind of way). I am learning a new language called MRA/MGTOW-speak that has lots of strange terms, “sexual stock”,”Red pill”, “beta male” (is this a reference to novel “Brave New World”?).

  • Meghan Murphy

    Considering that men treat human women as sex toys, it’s clear that, actually, no you *can’t* tell the difference.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Do you see women as autonomous human beings? Yes or no.

  • Meghan Murphy

    AGAIN: when are you all actually going to ‘go your own way’??

  • ♧BobbiEllen♧

    Your mother must be proud of the big bad man she raised. I mean, going to a women’s site to put them down is so brave. You hate women so much that you can’t leave them alone. Even making a robot of them. I don’t get it – why not date & screw other men like yourself?
    What it sounds like to me is that you are insecure. Otherwise, you wouldn’t care enough to bother. Don’t worry, we got the message – you’re a real POS. We will leave you alone to stick your dick in metal. Deep down you gotta realize how pathetic it is?

  • Meghan Murphy

    Christ you people are stupid.

  • Meghan Murphy

    How’s yer mom’s basement treatin ya, bubs?

    • ♧BobbiEllen♧

      Omg, another guy here to tell us how much we will miss them? Holy shit. Did they post this article on a men’s site? They have so many options, they shouldn’t worry about it then right? I’m glad you post these so that other women can see the truth. It’s obvious they are angry and want to hurt us.
      I’m going to sound awful, but sometimes I wish I was a man so I could really hurt them back. Maybe threaten them with rape, or beat the shit out of them for talking out of place… Then when they go to talk about it on their websites, actually go there & verbally abuse them.
      I try to remember I’m better than that.

      • Meghan Murphy

        Ya, it looks like it got posted on some MGTOW Facebook page. They are freaking the fuck out, poor little doods.

        • ♧BobbiEllen♧

          Omg hahaha. Well that explains it. Someone’s gotta defend the sex dolls honor, am I right?

          I was planning on donating btw, but I think I’ll wait a little bit so I can match my dollars to the amount of comments like these. Not trying to encourage it, just want to let them know their abuse only deepens my commitment.

      • Helookalikaman79

        silly little unwanted girls…. poisoned by feminism… Just gotta blame the big bad men, that don’t give a rats ass about you…. Its all a control issue with feminists, all you want is all the perks of being equal to men,(which will never happen) but never the responsibility…

          Sad little genetic dead-ends… when will you Go Your Own Way like you keep promising us? Disappear already.

  • ♧BobbiEllen♧

    Umm we already addressed all the men who came to a women’s site to verbally abuse them. The arguments were counteracted but you just couldn’t help but post could you tough guy? Do you feel better about yourself when you push women around in places you barge into? Do you think you’re proving anything other than your insecurity, by posting delusional rants here? You hate feminists & think they are so insignificant, but come to their sites… hmmm says more about you than any of us.
    Don’t let the door hit you too hard.

  • Meghan Murphy

  • Meghan Murphy

    Why don’t any of you know how to spell? I mean, you’re trying to convince us you are all such partner-worthy men, yet none of you can even read or write…

  • Meghan Murphy

    If you’re so independent, why are you so obsessed with us? Go your own way, at long last.

    • SGSJason

      Did I say I was doing ANHTHING? I am happily married. I am merely pointing out a flaw in the reasoning.

      • Meghan Murphy

        No one believes you are married, buddy.

      • Tired feminist

        OMG, your poor wife!

  • Meghan Murphy

    You obviously are aware that women don’t want to date you… Who are these imaginary women whose dinner you are expected to pay for? Video game characters don’t eat, you know….

  • Meghan Murphy

    Literally no one believes you have a girlfriend….

    • FierceMild

      Or $30k for sexbots

  • Meghan Murphy

    You are ridiculous.

  • Meghan Murphy

    I am anti-marriage, smarty-pants. We don’t *want* to marry you or live with you. Do you understand this? Again, GO YOUR OWN WAY. Your ‘movement’ is ridiculous. All you do is obsess over feminists, and then claim you don’t want anything to do with us. Get a life.

  • Meghan Murphy

    lol

  • archbra

    All the women will look at him with pity and maybe someone will come up and talk to him a little because they don’t want to be mean. It won’t go farther than that. Maybe he can’t see and can’t locate women without making a fool of himself, or maybe he can’t hear them and they aren’t interested in learning sign language. Maybe he’s in a wheelchair and therefore an automatic object of pity. He will go home and cry himself to sleep. Now if he had a robot that behaved like a human, he could at least live the illusion of being a normal successful guy.

    • Tired feminist

      Jesus F. Christ, there’s so much contempt for the disabled in this comment I can barely believe you’re having the gall to accuse WOMEN of being condescending with them. Everything you’re accusing us of is pure projection.

  • Tired feminist

    LMAO you wouldn’t stand 5 minutes on a woman’s skin.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Created a Disqus account just to comment on a feminist article. You musta got real worked up by this one, eh? You and your MGTOW buddies sure are sensitive…

  • ♧BobbiEllen♧

    I’m kind of tired out from dealing with all the men coming here to tell us how sad we will be with out them & id at least tell you to go fuck yourself, but that’s a waste of time because you already are.

  • Leo

    Education (well, what passes for ‘highly educated’ in the US, lol), physical fitness, financial stability, looks…nothing about being an actual decent human being in all that. You demonstrate that you’re not, that you’re misogynistic, homophobic, and racist. That’s why you dudes are losers.

    Where are all these supposed ravening hordes of Muslim men? I can’t see any, I live in Europe. Do you think men who aren’t Muslims don’t rape women? You should check the court cases, if so. There’s a common factor here: patriarchy. Islam is a patriarchal religion, part of patriarchal culture. Yes, we’re going to vilify rapists regardless of what colour, religion or anything else they might be, and rape apologists – the non Muslim men would hardly be decent men if they were laughing at women being raped, would they? You’re not making any case they wouldn’t deserve strong condemnation.

  • FierceMild

    Teehee! You’re hilarious!

  • FierceMild

    What does it do? According to the video it does nothing at all. Weird little boys imagine it doing things while they masturbate that’s not the same thing as doing though, is it?

  • FierceMild

    Someone makes a slave sex robot and you think a commentary about that is obsessive?! You just failed thinking.

  • FierceMild

    Funny how when these “men” go their “own way” it somehow always happens to be right in a feminist space…

  • Tired feminist

    Femininity is fragility, stupid. That’s why we ditch it.

    @patrickcappadocia:disqus You mean this MGTOW?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOXFhYkn-Y4

    Or how about this MGTOW, where the scrub in this video encourages men to crossdress for the purpose of invading women’s spaces and sabotaging them from within (around the 8:20 mark), which is what misogynistic “trans” males have been doing for some time now.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVkeV0mV1Xc&feature=youtu.be&t=8m20s

    Your “movement” is a waste of male time and energy. Instead of making endless videos and blogposts tearing women down, why don’t you dedicate yourselves to encouraging younger men to spend their time and live their lives productively. Instead of grooming them into miserable, racist, sexually frustrated beta males.

  • Meghan Murphy

    My boyfriend and his friends think you dudes are pathetic weirdos and you know it. But he doesn’t spend his entire life on MRA internet threads obsessing over women who don’t want anything to do with him, so what does he know. Take a deep breath — you’re going to give yourself a heart attack.

    • Christopher

      Your boyfriend is a god damn mangina and an Uncle Tim. An uncle Tim is a weak, lame, effeminate male who sides with feminists to “sell out ” his own gender for a weak (feminist) female’s approval!

      • Meghan Murphy

        You wouldn’t say that to him in person, I promise ya.

        • Christopher

          I don’t argue with children, manginas, and feminists. I will not-give your “”attention-starved” self the wicked enjoyment of another second of my wisdom. Take care

          • Meghan Murphy

            It appears that you love arguing with feminists and that you are desperate for my attention, tho…

            Try and stick that flounce, sugar tits.

      • Alienigena

        Well if magina translates to decent human being vs. abusive thug, not a bad thing.

        I thought feminists were considered ‘ball busters’, weak? There needs to be some consistency in your wacky group’s self-representation and PR.

  • Tired feminist

    If I can suggest, you should dump your girlfriend NOW, ASAP.

  • ♧BobbiEllen♧

    Unfortunately, a lot of your fellow men have commented otherwise. I agree, it is sexist both ways & encourages people to be anti social. I’d be offended if someone suggested this. I actually rather see someone get a dog because at least they are living things with personalities & a great excuse to leave the house. (I used to tell my single friends to go to the dog park with me. Lots of great single people & they could cheat by using my dog!)
    Unlike what most men have said here, *we* don’t hate men. In fact many of us are in relationships, mostly with men that are great! We just know there’s problems with the attitude in society.
    I’m sorry you had someone speak to you so ignorantly. I hope you know that’s not true, plenty of people fall in love, not because of superficial reasons, but because they have great qualities.
    Thanks again for not pulling a “not all men” & seeing this for what it is – insulting. Good luck 🙂

  • FierceMild

    Yes. This is exactly it. I care about the women (more likely younger women) who will be hurt by this either directly by these men looking for someone who will cry and bruise when you hit her, or by the mindfuck this will produce within the culture. The men are doing this to themselves. The women and girls are the ones I care about.

  • FierceMild

    Right on, sister. They’re scared because with education and jobs (even shitty or lower payed jobs) we don’t have to stay with them. That terrifies them.

  • ♧BobbiEllen♧

    I suggest therapy for obvious fear of women. The only one trying to control anything is you by telling women what they can and can’t talk about. If we actually gave 2 fucks about your boys club, we’d go over there and harass you – just like your doing here! If you didn’t care, why come here? Oh yeah, you do care. you can try your abusive tactics, but they won’t work. We don’t want to control sex either, after all we aren’t men.

  • FierceMild

    You do know it’s the life’s ambition of many people, female and male, to live in Vancouver with their dogs, right?

    And what makes you think you know anything about Ms. Murphy’s personality?! If you read the article you know something of her opinion on sex dolls. That’s all.

  • FierceMild

    Femininity is ritualized submission and masculinity is forced soldierhood. We should give up capitalism and the idea of ruling the world. Instead, focus on self-rule and you might end up useful and happy instead of making a complete braying ass of yourself on feminist websites.

  • FierceMild

    Dood, we aren’t trying to be feminine.

  • FierceMild

    You don’t get to say what women need or don’t need.

  • Meghan Murphy

    I know. They are all miserable, bitter, angry, obsessed dudes, who don’t have friends or relationships because (obviously) they are shitty to be around. It’s like the most obvious projection, coming here and accusing us of being bitter and lonely.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Yes, I am the moron. Not the troll ranting hysterically in the comment section about how sex robots signal long-awaited Male Independence.

    • SGSJason

      I never said they signaled male independence. Personally I think they are stupid. But for the men who choose to use them it sure seems like they feel like they have achieved independence…

  • Tired feminist

    To which he’ll angrily reply “I’M NOT A MRA, I’M A MGTOW!!!”

  • Meghan Murphy

    Feminists would be stoked if misogynists stopped including women in ‘their equation’. But they don’t. Instead, they spend every waking moment feeling angry that they aren’t getting the sex/fantasy women they feel they are entitled to and then punishing women for not fulfilling said fantasies.

    Oh my god, you poor child.

    Many of these guys try to garner sympathy with their talk of how lonely they are but they are just upset that they don’t have a trophy on their arm to show off.

    When men have standards (which is usually just about how hot a female is and nothing else)….they claim its biology. And women bend over backwards to meet their standards (dieting, shaving/waxing, makeup, fake hair/nails, sexy clothes/shoes , plastic surgery, injections and etc.)

    When women have standards, (even if they are perfectly reasonable) men don’t blame biology, they claim that women are just money-hungry, shallow, manipulative, evil, cunts/bitches who love rejecting men!!!!

    Then when women lower their standards and are treated poorly (physical/verbal abuse and etc) because they have lowered their standards…woman are then labeled as dumb, pathetic, desperate because we have lowered our standards.

  • Julie Katz

    I tried to look on that bright side too. but then thought of all the women (wives/girlfriends) who would be forced to accept their men having one of these things in the “man cave” and/or forced to interact with it to prove how “sex positive” they are. At under $10k, if this gets realistic enough in the right ways and gains some kind of acceptance as a therapeutic tool, it could catch on pretty quickly. Look at all the guys who plunk down $10k on a snowmobile, or 3D printer, or prostitutes. I also worry about the effect that level of objectification and immersive fantasy life will have on the problem men seem to have with escalation/slippery slope when it comes to sex.Still, keeping these guys away from trying to “get” sex from women could be a net positive. Even if their awfulness isn’t genetic, assuming women stay away from men with sex dolls, they won’t be raising any boys to think of women as they do, and that’s not a terrible outcome.

  • Tired feminist

Heathly relationships are of interest to me as i have found and married the woman that i want to spend the rest of my life with and we have found many problems that we have encountered have come from our upbringing. i hope you can articulate these things in a way that we can teach others to find a path to bringing up our kids to find true happiness, whether boy or girl.

  • Heath Blomker

    this is not meant is a sarcastic way but i do have a true interest in eliminating patriarchy/ matriarchy and holding facts and truth as the basis decisions in a relationship.

    • Meghan Murphy

      What ‘matriarchies’ are you hoping to eliminate?

  • Heath Blomker

    in today’s era of technology and access to education i do not see anything that women cannot do that men can except biological. in raising a child a child should see the importance of both parents regardless of roles.

  • Julie Katz

    Can you really believe that even 5% of their customers are women? Or are they male trans buying themselves the ultimate affirmation? I suspect some trans-cooked numbers. Women have had fucking machines for ages and there’s never been much of a market, why would a female-bodied robot be appealing. Besides, what would the female robot AI say to a woman? Surely it’s not programmed for what a lesbian would find arousing dialogue.

  • Julie Katz

    What’s interesting to me is there is a whole field of transhumanists who are busy getting rights secured for a future where a person can have their consciousness downloaded–to protect the rights of the transhuman to exist and be maintained, and a field of bioethicists concerned with whether using robots as companions for the elderly and demented is ethical (if the patient can’t understand the robot is not a person/pet), and neither is concerned with the ethics of robot AI sex slaves or that the lie of AI actually being something different from complex programming (and therefore magically ethically neutral) is exposed by the sexbots.

  • Meghan Murphy

    But where does matriarchy exist? You are treating ‘patriarchy’ and ‘matriarchy’ as though they are both damaging things, when in fact only patriarchy is, as patriarchy is the system that exists and is damaging. There are no matriarchies on the planet, harming billions of people.

  • Wanna FeelAlive

    Alright. I should not hire escorts, should not watch porn, should not buy sex toys and can’t have a conversation with a girl due to my mental state (work in progress :D). Am I allowed to masturbate/fantasise thinking of girls?

    It might be just my age, but my sexual drive is strong and right now I can’t even focus on the work that I love, because sex and women are all that goes through my mind. Now I am trying to suppress those thoughts by picking up hobbies and focusing on work, but the feeling of being the only one not having sex, stays.

    I know I’m not entitled to having a relationship, however I feel like I should be allowed to relieve myself the way I want to as long as I don’t harm other people.

    • Meghan Murphy

      Who said you couldn’t masturbate!??!

I’ve deleted most of ’em, so as to not drive our readers crazy with boredom, but it’s worthwhile to let a few through, to demonstrate how dimwitted you all are. Do you truly not see the difference between a vibrator and a robot built to look and behave like a real (albeit stereotyped based on misogynist fantasies) woman??

  • Meghan Murphy

    lol. We didn’t even know you existed until you all stormed over here, desperate for our attention.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Is the dildo shaped like a human man? Is he programmed to engage with you like a man? Are men oppressed by women in this society, as a sex class? Are men seen as less than human, in comparison to women? Are men treated, en masse, like sex objects that exist for women’s use and abuse?

    This argument is boring. Why are you all so boring?

    Feminism doesn’t mean ‘gender equality,’ dummy. It means women’s liberation from male dominance (patriarchy).

  • Meghan Murphy

    The Science says that, eh? Does that mean all men are incapable of having friends? Or is that just you?

  • Meghan Murphy

    Are trafficked women not women? When did that happen?

  • Meghan Murphy

    If you believe dildos and vibrators are harming men, sure, write an article arguing against their production, idk. Is anyone stopping you from doing so?

  • Meghan Murphy

    Read the article.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Men turn into whiny, needy, jealous babies almost immediately. Many of them turn violent. Certainly they cheat. If not for women, men would never be born.

    The argument is not that you must be with women, the argument is that objectifying women is harmful for women, as a whole, who men already treat as sex objects. Sex robots that behave like feminized slaves that exist to cater to the male ego reinforce men’s view of women as things that exist for their use and abuse. idk do you just want me to rewrite my entire article in the comments here for you, lazybones?

  • Sarah Wiley

    It’s funny how feminists will rant about misogyny as they’re spewing misandry.

      It’s funny how only irrelevant MRAs think misandry is an actual thing.

      • Sarah Wiley

        So you’re saying that feminists can’t be misandristic? That’s like saying that black people can’t be racist.

  • Alienigena

    I think I finally get all the rage that is being directed at this article and the blog owner. Men can’t stand being contradicted by women. Or handle the fact that women have their own opinions. Men have an instant need to retaliate and lash out when they don’t receive the answer they want. I saw this behaviour in my brother when were both teenagers. When he could not convince me that a show about sexy women involved in action sequences was the greatest TV program ever. I am female, so why would he think I would think it was a greatest show ever? His anger derived from the fact that I had the temerity to disagree with him. He almost had a psychotic break when my response to his assertion was noncommital. Men and almost men (teenage males) don’t need provocation to psychotically break, they just can’t handle a difference of opinion/perspective.

    • Meghan Murphy

      This is a random/perhaps strange example, but the amount of men who’ve gotten like foaming at the mouth angry at me because I didn’t like Californication (I tried, too… Because people kept saying how good it was!?!?) because it’s sexist garbage is WEIRD. Dudes can’t handle it when you criticize the things they like. I mean, look at what happened to Anita Sarkeesian, just for pointing out that there was sexism in video games.

      • Alienigena

        I remember my brother suggesting that I watch the film “A Boy and His Dog” based on a well known science fiction novella by Harlan Ellison. It was the most reprehensible thing I have ever seen. It features a post-apocalyptic (nuclear) world where people behave like feral beasts. And the main character, the boy in the title, has sex with a young woman, then kills and eats her at the prompting of his telepathic dog (he actually shares her flesh with the dog). What do you say to someone after they make a recommendation like that? F*ck you very much.

    • Sarah Wiley

      I did. 95% of the buyers of sex dolls (at least as reported by a certain company) are men. So there are women who buy male sex dolls and men are cool with it.

      Also, maybe you could stop being quite so condescending.

      • Meghan Murphy

        Nah.

        The fact that, like, maybe three per cent of their customers are women kinda disproves your attempted argument.

        • Sarah Wiley

          And men aren’t getting upset over them owning sex dolls. Or dildos, for that matter.

          • Meghan Murphy

            Guess why.

  • Meghan Murphy

    We know about you lot way more than we like, what we don’ t know is why you aren’ t leaving already! You want nothing to do with women? Start by not barging into a feminist site telling us how much we mean nothing to you: not because it’ s hurtful or anything, but because it’ s an oxymoron and we get easily irritated by that level of disconnection from reality. If you don’ t care about us, don’ t talk to us, don’ t bother us, and please, PLEASE, ignore us!

    After that, call all your equally nonsensical, pathetic and hypocritical friends, put together all your money, and buy a private island where you can all live together without a single woman around and enter the meaningful relationship, sexual and emotional, that you crave with one another or your pillows!

    It will be exceptionally difficult for the World and women especially to adjust to your disappearance, but I promise we will try. Life goes on even after terrible losses, after all! Your sacrifice and teachings won’ t be wasted!

  • Meghan Murphy

    Public debates about birth control still happen, even within feminism. I have not argued against debates and conversation about birth control. I also have not actually argued that we make sex robots illegal. I have argued that they exist because we live in a misogynistic culture and that they normalize misogynist ideas about women.

  • Meghan Murphy

    The constant objectification of young women plus the So Cool ex-wife who harboured no anger over Duchovny/Hank’s man-child bs = puke.

    Sooo many dudes tried to convince me the show was actually critical of Hank’s behaviour (I don’t know how that would justify all the objectification and shit female characters, even if true) and could not accept that I felt the show was not at all compelling and total misogynist garbage.

  • Meghan Murphy

    I defended my views in the article. The point of writing the article is to explain my view. You should read it, if you’re interested in understanding my views! All will be revealed, I promise.

    • Nick Brook

      If what the article professes was true, we would ban violent video games and even paintballing as surrogates for real murder. There are many activities that ate substitutes for some of humanity’s basest behaviours.

      These guys are sad in the conventional sense. Bit hey, it’s their money and their choice. They are neither hurting or dominating anyone.

      We should not try to control people’s thoughts and even when these thoughts are not particularly savoury.

      A point to note is that objectifying the opposite sex is not the preserve of men. There are just as many predatory women as there are men.

      • Meghan Murphy

        Do you honestly believe that expressing an opinion = ‘controlling people’s thoughts’?

        And no, there are not ‘just as many predatory women as there are men.’

        You people are ridiculous.

  • marv

    But the vast majority of societies/nations in the world are patriarchal based. Gender jobs and roles are socially assigned from birth. There is no un-constructed choice deciding “who is best equipped to perform that job or role”.

    Marriage, nation building and sex dolls are manifestations of male rule.

  • Tired feminist

    No. I’m saying men’s brutality and hatred of women are not innate. We have plenty of evidence that these behaviors are learned. Men can stop being violent and therefore should be held accountable for their shit.

    If you disagree, you might consider start treating men like public safety threats.

  • Melanie

    What is it with comparing people with disabilities to pathetic creeps? It’ s the third time in this thread I see someone lumping disabled people in the same category of creeps, perverts and predators. How is it even comparable? Able bodied people don’ t think “Ewwww, disgusting, never in my life!” when they see someone in a wheelchair as they do when they hear about one’ s inordinate love for golden showers! Losing an arm is not the same as being a controlling jackass who feels entitled to sex. Not being disabled is not a moral value that regular people require for a relationship.

    Is it because you think that if a woman has a disability she is automatically a non-human for a man in terms of sex and love, and dating her would be like going out with an animal? So it’ s perfectly reasonable to think of people with disabilities as “going out of the natural order to the point that they are rejects”? I suggest you to think again!

    Also, do you genuinely think that using a sex toy will kill sexual drive in men indefinitely and we won’ t have to deal with these creeps ever again? Because I am pretty sure that even the ones who buy one know how fucked-up it is to have a sex doll as girlfriend, and after the honeymoon phase they will start thinking of how awful it is that great guys like them are forced to use plastic instead of real flesh as it’ s their sacrosant right to do. And guess who’ s going to be the receiver of aggressive attention doubled up with frustration and anger?

  • Tired feminist

    I won’t bother replying properly to you because you obviously didn’t bother to read the article, but I’ll just break this to you:

    “I’m an 18 year old guy […] I’ve tried dating several times, only to find myself stood up or canceled on the majority of those times. Because of this, I haven’t even looked for a date in over a half of a year.”

    Middle and high schoolers are flighty and shitty. Deciding you were doomed to failure at seventeen because you’re not married is fatalist. Life is always tumultuous and dark in your teen years (and the first half of your twenties).

  • Rich Garcia

    @djdj_jdjd:disqus Hope you don’t take this as condescending nagging, coming from a male who is a frequent commenter on this site. But it helps to learn the distinction between biological sex (male and female) and grammatical gender (masculine and feminine pronouns like he, she, him, or her) as applied to individuals of either sex, which was a word people used to use.

    “Gender” is a word misogynists, transactivists, and women generally new to or ignorant of Feminism use to inaccurately describe both sexes. It’s a small but very important thing to remember, since “gender” has superceded sex as a description and purposely given rise to the dogma that “gender identity” (i.e., transvestism/”transgenderism”) is of more importance or priority than the biological reality of being female or male.

    Just a friendly heads-up, even if it sounds like I am lecturing and speaking in circles. 🙂

  • Josh Williams

    Is there any way to talk about male sexuality without it being a bad thing? Women have wants and desires as well. Women are able to proudly use a vibrator or a dildo. I fail to see how this is different, more advanced perhaps but the key to remember is that the robot has no more traits of a human being than an anthropomorphic toaster. If we believe that men do not not know how to treat women differently than a robot, than we have dehumanized them as well. The comments about his appearance are totally uncalled for as well.. snake like, alien? Would you like those words used to describe you? You would rightly call them misogyny.

    • marv

      “Is there any way to talk about male sexuality without it being a bad thing?”

      Right. These male porn fixations portraying women as sex machines casts sexuality as a degraded thing.

      “..the robot has no more traits of a human being than an anthropomorphic toaster.”

      The robot is a representation of a sex slave woman within an actual rape, sexual harassment, porn and prostitution culture. Men’s sexual choices don’t occur apart from the oppressive political backdrop of male hegemony. Hardly comparable to an “anthropomorphic taster.” Dim witted comparison.

  • Meghan Murphy

    You can tell the REAL feminists by their enthusiastic agreement with the legions of looneybins MRAs who’ve been trolling this site saying basically the same thing. Thank you for demonstrating, yet again, the third wave feminism is a neoliberal, misogynist backlash to the women’s liberation movement and nothing more.

  • Meghan Murphy

    I have never and would never argue against masturbation. The fact that you are unable to differentiate between masturbation and creating facsimiles of objectified, pornified women whose ‘personalities’ are that of submissive slaves who exist to cater to the male ego tells me everything I need to know about your intellectual capabilities.

    I realize you think you are making an original argument here, but this is literally the same thing advocates of pornography repeat over and over again.

    Are you saying men cannot masturbate without simultaneously dominating women?

    • Observer

      I went out of my way to be civil and the first thing you do is insult me. On top of that, you did it erroneously.

      “[Masturbation] can be unrealistic and thus questionably healthy (visualizing porn, or skipping imagination all together and actually watching porn), or they can be realistic and perfectly healthy.”

      This is me making a distinction between healthy and unhealthy fantasy, and it should be assumed that I am against stereotypical pornography for the same exact reasons you just laid out. We don’t disagree.

      My point however is that it is fantasy. Fantasy can be healthy, or can be unhealthy, and from your perspective it can be normalizing behaviors/attitudes toward women which aren’t healthy. I don’t think we disagree there either.

      But for those reasons, I don’t see how you can be holding one fantasy tool and another fantasy tool to different standards. A female hand and a male hand, or a vibrator and a simulated vagina. If you believed all masturbation was bad for various reasons, then this would be a valid position to take, which is why I asked.

      “Are you saying men cannot masturbate without simultaneously dominating women?”
      I’m not sure where you got that idea, but my answer would be No. We agree yes?

      No. So if no, then why can’t a full size sex doll be just another means for healthy fantasy? That appears to be your position here — that this can’t possibly have any legitimate use other than to be a rape surrogate.

      A man could imagine a woman and use his hand, or he could have a physical manifestation of that fantasy as a full size doll. I personally find it a little weird, but it doesn’t necessarily make it a bad thing, though I acknowledge your reasons for why it can be, just like I acknowledge that erotic entertainment is largely unhealthy.

      Just because it can be doesn’t mean it IS.

      PS: I should clarify in my previous comment that there are men who advocate not masturbating to porn for reasons you would agree with. There are also men who advocate not doing it at all, and I understand that was never your position.

    Why do you people always seem to think that it’s ok for disabled men to engage in oppressive, misogynist behaviour simply because they are disabled? Is it ok for disabled women to be racist, because they’re disabled? Men will not die for lack of something to stick their dicks into. Also, disabled men are not incapable of having relationships with other people. How insulting.

    The media does love third wave feminism, it’s true. But it is not true that feminists have actual power in this world. If you had bothered to read literally anything else on this site (i.e. if you cared about what feminists are actually doing and saying, beyond you and your friends freak out over a critique of sex robots), you’d know that academia is busily silencing feminist discourse. http://www.feministcurrent.com/2017/05/03/hypatia-throws-critical-thought-window-name-feminist-philosophy/

  • Zuzanna Smith

    The only one denigrating women is you, when you support the message that women are sex objects to be used and abused by males. NO woman is empowered by performing for men. Why is it that women do not need men to dance, strip, act like airheaded idiots to make them attractive to us? Ask yourself that, Elle. This is not analogous to a dildo, which is just a rubber thing shaped like a penis, this is a full bodied woman effigy one that talks and is programmed to stroke a man’s ego and to not have her own feelings or thoughts. This hurts ALL women, not just those that are being exploited in the “sexual health community” guffaw at that, really what a crock.

  • Meghan Murphy

    “Females do not create or build.” Good point, Christopher! I mean, they literally don’t create or build anything… Except human beings… Like you…

    “Superior beings don’t have to constantly go on the attack in the media trying to convince people who superior they are.”

    What does this say, then, about you and the thousands of MRAs who’ve come here screaming obscenities and posting abusive, threatening comments? I delete these, but you should know that the bulk of comments from your brothers were illiterate, racist, misogynist, grotesque attacks. Based only on fear and upset that one woman would dare criticize the idea of sex robots… I guess this makes you all inferior, eh?

  • Meghan Murphy

    Your ‘rational MRA’ character doesn’t fool us, dood. Your friends and allies are morons. You clearly have no fucking clue what the feminist movement is even up to (or how patriarchy works) if you think it’s about ‘gender’ and ‘inherent privilege and oppression.’

  • Zuzanna Smith

    “It only reinforces your inferiority. Superior beings don’t have to constantly go on the attack in the media trying to convince people who superior they are.”

    Yet here you are crying and whining, over and over and over again. Hey, bro, if you were so superior then you wouldn’t even have the time to comment here and cry and act so butthurt, you’d be out there building and creating, moron.

  • Tired feminist

    Let’s see how many MRAs upvote this comment, then we can talk about who the real feminists here are.

    • Meghan Murphy

      My thoughts exactly.

  • Christopher

    Sorry Meghan. Females don’t “create” human beings! Females simply carry “created human beings”! Thus the concept of the artificial womb. Unfortunately, we live in a society whereby everything has been topsy turvy. The “SEED OF LIFE”, is carried by the MALE!!!! No seed, no life. That is a biological and scientific FACT that feminists abhor. Sorry sweetie, females don’t create life. You incubate the life that the male seed decided to enliven.

    • Meghan Murphy

      Where did you come from, Christopher?

      • Cassandra

        I have the same twitch of curiosity as you do though. That one is so out of touch and extra sick.

    • Alienigena

      The lack of knowledge of mammalian biology among the male posters is just frightening. If you used Aristotle as a source of knowledge re: mammalian reproductive biology you might think that women were only incubators. But one would be compelled to ask why are you ignoring the last 500-600 years of medical knowledge/discovery.

      “His view of the inferiority of women was based on faulty notions of biology. He wrongly believed, for example, that in procreation the male with his semen actively gave the fetus its form, while the female had only the passive role of providing its matter.”

  • Alienigena

    “Once a man “is not “horny” anymore, he could no care less about single women.”

    I think there are a proportion of women who treat men instrumentally too. They don’t really care about you as people or possibly they are resigned to your ‘playa’ (as in PUA) attitude.

  • Ron Baker

    The future is wealthy men having multiple wives. Wealthy women sharing a husband. Average men having an average wife or multiple lower class wives or ugly wealthy woman. Average women sharing an average husband or the only wife of a below average male. Below average men have sexbots. Below average women have to share a below average man.

    I assume you know how to read and therefore understand that I’ve been criticizing third wave feminism since, like, 2010, ya?

    • Cassandra

      It’s just astounding how many of them repeat this same shockingly braindead idea that we are a) “third wavers” b) that there’s such a thing as a “sexual monopoly” and c) that we’re nervous about losing out to robots. That we have a legitimate concern about what degrading things like sex dolls do to women as a class just can’t penetrate their pea brains. They truly just cannot wrap their heads around it.

      • Morag999

        I know. There’s no hope for these illiterate, thick-headed and immature men.

        It’s useless and energy-draining to explain anything to them, because they only hear the bizarre ideas and narratives inside their own heads. They are actually very much like transgenderists, third-wavers, sadomasochists, playboy/queer feminists, etc.

        Fact is, IF men’s use of sex dolls or robots held the promise of greatly reducing, rather than reinforcing, male violence against girls and women, feminists might even embrace a harm-reduction strategy and promote the practice of supplying them to males … perhaps on a boy’s 13th birthday. And especially for boys who show signs of violent behaviour, and deficits in their moral development and capacity for empathy.

        But we KNOW that the idea of sexbots as harm-reduction is a big lie and a fantasy.

        We know that the creation of these effigies is evidence of male depravity, evidence that many men feel most powerful/successful when they can make dead things seem alive, or make living things into semi-corpses.

        What they like best, apparently, is an object that shows signs of life, but that has no will of its own, so that the man’s will always wins and reigns supreme.

        Then, of course, he sticks his dick into the thing. And the more he does it, the more dangerous he becomes. The relief is only temporary. Because, being a worthless human being, he has to prove his worth to himself again and again … and robots just aren’t going to cut it for very long. They are TOO dead, too easy to conquer.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Why the fuck are you freaks so obsessed with dildos???

  • Meghan Murphy

    You guys are totally obsessed with this movie and this woman that literally no feminist has ever heard of before. Let it go. We don’t care.

  • Meghan Murphy

    Please point to where I or anyone else at Feminist Current has ever argued “Dildo’s/Sex toys for women: Empowering, healthy, inspires independence, great.”

    You all keep repeating this over and over again. I assume there is some reason for that, and you haven’t just been making up crazy stories in your tiny little heads?

    Hi Chris! I have a question for you:

    What is third-wave feminism?

    Go ahead. I’m looking forward for your answer.

    Thanks!

  • Cassandra

    Or is that dildos four? For some men it could be dildos twelve for all we know.

  • Lady Dark Helmet

    What about dildos three?

  • Tired feminist

    Nobody asked, bro. Nobody cares.

  • Cassandra

    Um, dude? You’re the one who has failed at logic. Dildos are neither empowering for women nor violent toward men. There’s simply no comparison between a dildo and female sex doll. That you think there is is pitiful. And none of us here try to veil or not veil our dislike of male violence. That you think criticism of male violence = hatred for anything male reveals what YOU think of men.

  • Cassandra

    And that situation clearly made you such a good MAN!! We all ought to emulate your magnificence.

    The destruction of the “American nuclear family” has not happened yet, not by a long shot, but it will be a glorious day for womankind when it finally falls. Freedom at last.

  • Cassandra

    The very old edition of the MRA handbook you’re using has failed you, son.
    -females don’t create or build anything (and you better watch it with that word lest the gender zombies come to suck what’s left of your brain out)
    -enjoy your gender studies classes
    -men build everything
    -misandry blah misandry misandryblah
    -gynocentric
    -Western media

    All that’s missing is a mention of war or mining or both.

    You should maybe stop jacking off onto your Star Wars sheets and get a new handbook. I mean seriously, you’re so 2011.

    And if you don’t think the “superior” beings you believe you’re one of don’t have to constantly convince people of how superior they are then you’ve never heard of Hollywood or Madison Avenue.

    He was referring to the snake-like creature who makes these dolls. You know, the really awful-looking creature above — in Meghan’s article — the thing that hurts my eyes every time I have the misfortune to scroll over it. (The dolls are made in his own image though to some extent, that’s for sure.)

    Many “men” (17-year-old children) here seem to have sads in their pants that women do indeed notice when a man is physically unattractive, but of course in this case it wouldn’t matter if he were RYAN REYNOLDS with a HUGE MEMBER he’d still be ugly because he has chosen to bring such a negative thing into the world.

    To these guys he is both Hephaestus and Pygmalion, and because they see themselves in him, also a sort of hero. Muy triste.

    Way to miss the point of the article, dude. Literally no one is worried that robots are going to replace women. You guys should try reading things outside of 4Chan threads every one in a while.

    • Hekate Jayne

      It’s endlessly fascinating to me that no matter how many times you say this, how many different ways you dumb it down, no matter how you phrase this, that all that these little fellas can hear is a variation of “womenz just are so skeered that we won’t have them”.

      I am really beginning to think that having a penis causes stupidity.

      • will

        “I am really beginning to think that having a penis causes stupidity.”

        Well, if your survey sample consisted of the men who have commented here (a couple of regular commenters/allies excepted) you would have pretty compelling evidence for that thesis.

  • Meghan Murphy

    You guys really need to get your story straight. Half of you claim sex robots are going to completely replace women and the other half keep insisting that they won’t. Beyond that, considering how obsessed you all are with ‘third wave feminism,’ you should really figure out what that is and what radical feminists think about it. It’s embarrassing.

  • Meghan Murphy

    If you want to ban dildos, that’s fine with me… But then what will you do on weekends?

    What the fuck are you talking about? Since when feminists have any power to “impose” anything!? You cannot accuse us of “imposing” our analysis simply because it resonates with more women (and men) than you would like.

  • Lady Dark Helmet

    Oh, I’ m sorry, I didn’ t realize your penis was a sentient person and had feelings.

    Did you read the part where I said that most dildos look nothing like a penis? What kind of conversation can a sex doll hold since it’ s programmed to say those things, not think them? Have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe, we don’ t need a male sex doll because we don’ t equate a man with a sex object? And unlike the anthropomorphization of sex dolls, we don’ t do the same with freaking dildos? Do you genuinely think that considering a hunk of plastic a girlfriend is totally healthy? Did you miss the part where I said most women DO NOT HAVE DILDOS NOR THEY ARE OBSESSED WITH THEM?

  • Lady Dark Helmet

    Ah, right: you are actually doing it for women’ s good. What a selfless act of sacrifice!

    “Third world countries that hate our existence”

    Who’s “we”? I’m from a third world country.

  • Alienigena

    We live in a culture that encourages the opposite, stripping down and taking nude and semi-nude photographs of yourself. A culture that sexualizes little girls, adolescent girls and adult women. On the surface this culture encourages girls and women to be ‘free’ and sexually active but ask any teenage girl or woman what happens to them when explicit photos they have taken get out on the Internet or are traded like trading cards between male peers. It is the girls and women who are demonised and shamed not the men and boys who take the photos, exhaustively search for or steal (hacking phones and accounts is stealing) these images. And these examples don’t even touch on the harm to women in professional or amateur porn (to their reproductive health, their overall health) who don’t even have the right in many cases to demand that male actors wear condoms or refrain from engaging in sexually violent acts (that the director/producer/customer is wanting to see).

  • Tired feminist

    Many men and women have problems to express emotions, resulting in difficulties with personal relationships. For example, those in the autistic spectrum. Still, most of them are not looking for sexbots. So try a different excuse.

    @shawn_gunn:disqus Sexual violence, drug addiction, an aging European population, and your own recessive genetics are all responsible for your impending “White Genocide”. It has shit to do with Muslims who wouldn’t be pouring into your countries at the rate that they are doing if countless wars weren’t waged against them on THEIR soil, and they were left with nowhere else to go.

    I’d be more worried about the pimps and johns who are a plague on the local European populations of women and girls who are forced into prostitution. The biggest threat to the white woman has historically been and continues to be the white man. And remember that “Diversity” is the white males experiment. The ‘darker races’ were doing just fine before your ancestors barged in on their land.

    This idea that women have closets full of dildos and that radical feminists would argue that dildos liberate women is pure delusion, and goes to show you all spend waaaaaaay too much time in MRA forums and not enough time in the real world, reading real things actual feminists are actually saying.

    Look, I know you think you’re making an original point, but we’ve heard all those arguments gazillions of times from the so-called “sex-positives”. We’re not buying them. I don’t have the time to reply to your comment point by point, but since you said you want a honest discussion I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and try to summarize:

    All our notions of sex – ALL of them – are contaminated with male supremacist ideology, because we live in a male supremacist society. We learned to conflate the notion of sex itself with the notions of male dominance/female subordination. In this context, male and female sexualities are not equal. Both men and women internalize male supremacist concepts in their sexuality: sexual violence against women is eroticized, female submission is eroticized etc. To ignore these aspects and pretend male and female sexualities are equal and value-neutral (for example, that porn is “for women too”, that “consent” erases violence, or that a dildo is comparable to a robot that looks like a female sex slave) is to mask the male supremacism of this culture. We won’t liberate women from male domination by closing our eyes and pretending women are already liberated. This is wishful thinking, pure and simple.

    If you’re interested (which I’m still not quite sure you are), go to the tag list at the bottom of the page and click in tags such as “porn”, “prostitution”, “ojectification”, “BDSM”, “burlesque”, “sex & sexuality”, and so on, and you’ll find some excellent feminist criticism of “sex-positivity”.

There is a difference between talking down to people, which is what the MRA commenters who haven’t read the article and make the same comment that 25 men who also haven’t read the article have already made are doing, and actually being noticeably more intelligent, articulate, and better informed, which is what you are reacting badly to in Ms. Murphy and others.
