"I can just picture the manufacturer saying, `What's wrong with that?' but if you stop and try to picture the roles reversed – of a man decked out like a total slut and subservient to his superhero wife, the image is just ludicrous," says "nolan ash" on devildoll.livejournal.com.
You mean the idea of being married to a hot guy subservient to me is ludicrous? Well... damn.
Okay, okay, so I'm not a superhero. But what is all the fuss about? A collectible of a busty Mary Jane doing Spiderman's laundry has sold out already, and created quite a stir.
Someone called Simon weighs in: "I'm a guy, and I'm as grossed out and offended by this as you are. I'm the goddamned target market for this piece of shit and it makes me want to go scrub myself with a wire brush.... Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go mow the lawn shirtless."
You know, I don't recommend that. Sometimes the lawnmowers shoot things out and then if there are mosquitos...
Okay, seriously. Is the fact that (some) men like boobs a newsflash? I wish the picture thing was working on blogger today, because I'd be tempted to dig out an old yearbook. There was this guy in high school, one of the athletic crowd, who dressed up for a costume contest as a male stripper. Tight black pants and nothing else but a bowtie and the applause he got when he won best costume in the assembly that day was proof the girls loved it.
If I was going to be bothered every time we're reminded that men like to look at women I'd never stop taking offense. And I'd be morally opposed to this.
