[quote]A MELBOURNE bookstore chain has defended the sale of a remote control for women, saying the male remote control has already sold out. Borders was forced to defend its $15 novelty product after a woman called the ABC to say she was furious at discovering it during last week's celebration of female rights and achievements. Katie Robertson told ABC Radio she was "troubled" by the toy, after spotting it on International Women’s Day last week, "mainly because it encourages a stereotype of women as submissive, who are to be controlled". Tell us: What do you think of the remote? What buttons would you add? "There are certain buttons on there. For example, the male may decide that he wants beer, sex or food," she said. "He may press a button in which he requires the woman to remove her clothes, cook, clean, leave, (or) say yes.[/quote] Hmm if i get one, No wait if every man on earth gets one, WE CAN RULE THE EARTH. But anyway. What. And if your a girl? Don't worry there is a Control a man. Ah hell i will list them all. Control a Women. Control a Man. Control a kid. Control a dog. Control a cat.

God shes a bit of a control freak
[quote]a woman called the ABC to say she was furious at discovering it during last week's celebration of female rights and achievements.[/quote] I'd use the remote on her.
If women don't want a toy that makes fun of how they bitch and disagree too much, they should stop bitching and disagreeing so much.
Anyone want pictures? Of what the remote/'s can do?
So... does it work? :q:
That's kind of fucked

That's an odd thing to sell... my Borders doesn't have that kind of stuff. But being in Texas they probably would have gotten on it even quicker.
[QUOTE=TH89;20788085]That's kind of fucked[/QUOTE] If it was a book on manipulation it would be. But this is a gimmick item, to ban this would be like banning the USB doomsday button for safety reasons.

There's a male one though. Why are the women complaining about the female one? It's not sexist; there's a remote for both genders. They play on the stereotypes of both genders. There's equal treatment. I swear, most feminists fight for DOMINANT treatment and rights, instead of EQUAL treatment and rights.
Hilarious how no one says anything about the male remote.
[QUOTE=AtomicWaffle;20793479]Hilarious how no one says anything about the male remote.[/QUOTE] That's because men are smart enough to know that they don't actual work
All it needs is one button, a "Shut up and suck my dick" button
