Inflatable women: As dangerous as real ones?

Beautiful, but deadly.
Be careful out there, fellas, as you make your way in the brave new post-woman world. Sure, it goes without saying that sexy robot ladies will soon replace real women, and obviously that's great news for all of us, except perhaps for human females, who don't really count anyway. But approach with caution; some sex toys artificial female companions can be downright dangerous. Case in point: A recent news story on FoxNews.com from Australia which suggests that inflatable women can be as treacherous as real ones.

A bizarre decision to ride an inflatable doll down a flood-swollen Yarra River in Australia blew up in a woman’s face yesterday when she lost her latex playmate in a rough patch.

The incident prompted a warning from police that blow-up sex toys are "not recognized flotation devices’’.

Police and a State Emergency Services crew were called to the rescue when the woman and a man, both 19, struck trouble at Warrandyte North about 4.30 p.m. Tuesday.

They were floating down the river on two inflatable dolls and had just passed the Pound Bend Tunnel when the woman lost her toy in turbulent water.

She clung to a floating tree, calling for help while the man stayed with her. Fortunately for the pair, a passer-by called triple zero while while a kayaker took life jackets to the pair. Police and the SES crew hauled the water-logged thrillseekers to safety.

Clearly, this is a case of attempted murder. No doubt the young man was the real intended target.

The most ominous part of the report. The final paragraph:

"The fate of the inflatable dolls is unknown," said Senior Constable Wilson.

In other words, the dolls are still out there, biding their time, just waiting for another opportunity to wreak their vengeance on the human world!

  2. I was raped by two of these damned things.

    I was afraid to report it to police - for fear that they would not believe me.

    It is a fact that inflatable dolls are much stronger than human beings. Once they get their hands on you - you cannot break free.

  4. Really - are these things repelled by baby oil?

    Kinda like aliens not being able to get into your head if you put aluminum over it?

  5. No, baby oil is a good way to stay slippery and harder to grab hold of-for you and these devil creatures.

    I think this guy is a true misyogynist. He preyed on poor, minority women; he killed several women and injured many others, not to mention the children he killed. He did these things over many years.

  7. If those accusations are true, then yes, that is horrible. Even if they are not, it seems clear that he ran a very shoddy practice offering seriously substandard care for women who couldn't afford anything better, so in that sense, yes, he preyed on poor and minority women. Here's a good piece on the story that helps to put it into perspective:

  8. In perspective? No, into spin.

    The guy was a butcher, and inspectors over and over failed to shut him down. I imagine the reason was to avoid bad press for abortions.

    Those do disagree with abortion are not anti-choicers. There are many choices-including the many forms of birth control, adoption, abandonment at a fire station or hospital, and abstinence. They just do not agree with one choice.

    In a sense? How not in a sense is this?

    These women had access to birth control, and abortions in the first trimester. Why on earth would anyone have an abortion in their third trimester? If the child is already stillborn it is not an abortion, and if you are already that far along and have to deliver anyways, why on earth wouldn't you give up the child for adoption. There are thousands of parents looking for babies.

    He was misogynist, far more than any guy dreaming of a robot girlfriend in his basement or riding down a river on a blow up doll. This guy killed women. He mutilated women. He took women who were poor, desperate and who trusted him and he routinely butchered them. How is that not misogynist?

    Did you notice there was a woman who was also riding an inflatable doll? Is she a misogynist too?

  9. Did I defend him? No. If these allegations are in fact true, yes, he was a butcher. Even if they aren't, he ran a shoddy, sleazy practice and, yes, preyed on poor women. Since I don't know anything about his beliefs I have no idea if he was a misogynist, but he certainly may be one; obviously he did not care enough about other people to run a safe clinic, and that's fucked up.

    I think your notion that inspectors didn't shut him down because they wanted "to avoid bad press for abortions" is absurd. Maybe they were lazy. Maybe they were corrupt. We don't know.

    Those who support legal abortion do not support sleazy unsafe abortion clinics like this one.

    I'm not sure why you posted about this in this particular topic. My post about the inflatable dolls was A JOKE.

  10. I wanted to give you a little perspective. It is very difficult to tell when you are joking as over half of your blog entries are this silly or irrelevent.

    The bit about the inflatable dolls trying to kill people didn't tip you off?

    Either you didn't actually read the whole post, or you're incredibly obtuse. I'm going to be charitable and assume the former.
