Robot named “Miim,” rhymes with Him, also “mum’s the word” of silence predominant men want from womankind

A bride to do her man’s bidding, and she’s his robot, his thing, his, his, his, Miim belongs to Him.  If this (robot photo, widely online today with no commentary about the inherent misogyny invested in this robot bride named “Miim”) cannot creep out the women of the world, make their flesh crawl and wake women up about misogyny, what can:

“[from REUTERS/Toru Hanai (JAPAN ENTERTAINMENT SOCIETY SCI TECH)] The HRP-4C humanoid robot “Miim” presents a wedding dress by Japanese designer Yumi Katsura during the 2009 Yumi Katsura Paris Grand Collection in Osaka, western Japan, July 22, 2009.”

And what is this world in which predominantly men speak and say more (or less) while independent voices of women are silenced by media manipulation?

It is a world in which silhouettes of naked, anonymous, Barbie-doll voluptuous women on I-75 between Bible-belt Atlanta and Macon, GA, are tagged on billboards — publicly for every little girl traveling the interstate in a car with her family to see — with this line:  “Strippers … need we [men] say more?”

It is a world poised with nukes, also poisons of our lands, rivers and seas percolating to harm Mother Earth, not really anyplace you’d want to live if you had another option — unless you were the typical, predominant narcissistic male, always seeking his narcissistic supply, not capable of real caring, only able to pretend, all charm and harm.

It is a world of hypocrisy about the family, about the prevailing hierarchical religions, about the misogyny of the war by males against females.

Sadly, unless it changes, the suffering of the consequences will be vast beyond even our prodigious story-telling abilities as a current species.

But hey, there’s a robot with a bride’s dress to be ripped off the female robot body by any guy who can afford her.
