HAHAHA. GOOD ONE.
Yes, geniuses, you guessed it. It's designed to look like a lady. A thin white lady with big lips, painted on makeup, fake boobs and sex organs, a computer with voice recognition software and ... I don't know. Not much else. Here were a few choice quotes:
"She even comes loaded with five distinct "personalities," from Frigid Farrah to Wild Wendy, that can be programmed to suit customers' preferences."
Fantastic, I was hoping that there would be a product that would oversimplify the inner lives of women and re-package them into a few titillating varieties.
"'There's a tremendous need for this kind of product,' said Hines, a computer scientist and former Bell Labs engineer."
Oh yeah, there's a tremendous need for this, alright... Because, I mean, so few women these days properly play their role of acquiescent sperm receptacle. You'd think a few of us might have realized we're fully human, or something.
This next one was my favorite:
"She doesn't vacuum or cook, but she does almost everything else"
OMG HAHAHAHA. Get it? Women are supposed to vacuum and cook! And that, on top of the services she DOES perform (sperm receptacle, remember?) is "everything!" Hey ladies! Are you vacuuming, cooking or being filled with sperm right now? No? Well, get to it, because that's everything, for you. The entire scope of your world. Fucking precious.
OK, now I have a few questions for CNN. WHY THE FUCK IS THIS NEWS? Why is CNN talking about a product that commodifies women and their sexuality and sends the message that women aren't quite whole humans? Because it's a little niftier than all of the other ones?
FUCKING HELL, CNN.
