You’ll note from the packaging that Lusty Linda can utter “8 lusty sayings,” which fall into one of two categoriesâ€””good mood” or “bad mood,” controlled by the click of a switch. Says one site (screen cap) that sells Lusty Linda, “too bad all women did not have such a switch.” Ho ho ho!
Her “bad mood” sayings include “Ow,” “Help, Help!” and “Get out you, you dirty old man.” You know, because rape is hilarious.
Recently “men’s rights activists” scoffed at the idea that we were offended by the pencil sharpener, which blogger Glenn Sacks wrote “depicts a conventional, common sex act which women enjoy.” (What woman enjoys fucking without her head, I don’t know.) I wonder if they’ll find more excuses as to how “Help!” and “Ow!” are actually cries of unabashed pleasure.
Cara puts it well:
This promotes rape. If you buy one of these things, you are promoting rape. If you laugh at one of these things, you are promoting rape. If you donâ€™t laugh but still think that itâ€™s a harmless joke, you are promoting rape. If one of your friends has one, or thinks itâ€™s funny, and you donâ€™t say anything about it, you are promoting rape.
How many more times do we have to say it? Rape is not funny.
