Sex Dolls, Robots and Woman Hating: The Case for Resistance

Caitlin Roper

Lifelike, replica women and girls produced for men’s sexual use, sex dolls and robots represent the literal objectification of women. They are marketed as companions, the means for men to create their ‘ideal’ woman, and as the “perfect girlfriend” that can be stored away after its use.

Advocates claim the development of sex dolls and robots should be actively encouraged and will have many benefits – but for who?

Sex Dolls, Robots and Woman Hating exposes the inherent misogyny in the trade in sex dolls and robots modelled on the bodies of women and girls for men’s unlimited sexual use. From doll owners enacting violence and torture on their dolls, men choosing their dolls over their wives, dolls made in the likeness of specific women and the production of child sex abuse dolls, sex dolls and robots pose a serious threat to the status of women and girls.

It is the holiday you never wanted to take to a place you don’t want to go, but you will be thankful you went, because you will learn some important things
