Nov 17, 2009: Oh Mickey, you're so fine...

I took a photo of this community-service exhibit at my apartment complex in Beijing. From what I was able to piece together, it was part of a population-control display (China's old one-child-per-family policy has gone away, but they still encourage people to keep the numbers semi-manageable.)

So I can understand the various condoms in the display. And I kind of understand the "adult toys"; after all, they DO ensure no unwanted pregnancies.

But can anyone explain why the organizers decided to put Mickey Mouse in there? Holding a dildo??

That's a dildo? It looks like a baby bottle!



Tawny  Tuesday Nov 17 12:25 PM

Mickey and dildos go together like Mom and apple pie.

I'd hate to see any Mom using an apple pie the same way Mickey would use a dildo.

maybe it's a douche - er. or an enema apparatus!

From the nozzle on the tip, I can see how a baby could use it. But then what's the purpose of those yellow bristles if not side-wall-scrubbing-action?


Shawnee123  Tuesday Nov 17 01:25 PM

You mean like an inverse car wash?

Arghhhhhhhhh...no thanks!

It looks like Mickey is saying" And it was thiiiiis big...."

After Minnie discovered Goofy, she started calling Mickey "Mini Mouse," so Mickey bought the big fancy dildo to win her back.

Hey, Disney theme parks are full of rides. Why shouldn't the display have the do it yourself version?



Mayor of Shekou  Tuesday Nov 17 09:45 PM

I hate when people just post to say they saw a mistake, but this one's too important to let go. I live in Shenzhen, China, and as far as everyone here knows the rule is still in effect. The differences are that people are becoming wealthy enough that they can pay the fines so they don't care, and don't rely on government housing or jobs that they still lose if they have two kids. Farmers have always been exempt, and if a couple are both single kids then they are allowed 2. Other than that, the law still stands.

Well, I think my wife may have hit it on the head...

The first thing that drew her eyes was the Mickey Mouse, then you stop and get a better look at it and realize what it all is about. It's like HEY! THAT'S MICKEY MOU... WTF!!! Why is mickey holding a crotch rocket????????

My theory is less plausable but more interesting...

Vibrators and rubbers cost less than a trip to Disneyland with your kids.

Thanks Mayor.

I've heard that about a hundred times.

I couldn't understand why any country that managed to pull that off would be so stoopid as to let it lapse.

The mayor is right. It seems every Chinese couple I know consists of parents born in the early '80s, so they're all having 2 kids because they can. Whenever I first asked them how they can legally do that, the answer was always "It's allowed now."

Technically, the law is still on the books. But in reality, after factoring in everyone who is exempt (farmers, minorities, people who live in special regions, sibling-less parents, foreign-born kids, twins, handicapped first-borns) plus the growing number of Chinese who are so rich they can pay any fine or bribe to get their way, there are only about a dozen couples left who are actually affected by the rule.

And, coincidentally, they all like Chairman Mouse.

Well, I happen to know one of those dozen couples. Wife accidentally got pregnant with the second, and they refused to abort. Husband worked for the government; he lost his job and they burned his house down. (Why they don't just evict them and give the house to a different state worker, I don't know. Symbolism or whatnot.) All this happened earlier this year.

And let's not forget the thousands upon thousands of babies that are suddenly no longer allowed to be adopted out internationally. The government says they are all being adopted domestically now. Sure they are.


xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Nov 18 02:41 PM

Maybe the government didn't own the house. After all, they just can't take a citizen's house away, people have rights.





They just burn it down.
