Newsflash: Toys Now Indistinguishable From Satire

Because I couldn’t make this up. Not if I tried.

Struts Runway Magic. It’s a plastic equine! It’s an unfeasibly insubstantial fashion model! It comes in clearly delineated racial types!

It’s – Struts Runway Magic! Now selling at a polymer-soaked femininity indoctrination centre near you.

Struts Sierra!


Struts Sydney!


Struts Rio!


Struts Milan!

    That’s how they do it, Deborah. It’s the frog in the boiling water technique!

  4. I suspect a lot of little girls like horses so very much because they’d like to be one–the natural embodiment of all a patriarchal society will never allow. But this is ridiculous! Being a mature, wise, anti-patriarchy horse-lover who has almost grown out of wanting to be a horse, I have come to the conclusion were it possible to choose between having a baby or having a foal, I’d go for a foal every time. Horses are such nice people. This however is an insult. Horses with handbags and highheels! Good grief.

    I had the same reaction to this.
