[Image is a photo of those plastic, fluid-filled toys that frequently had glitter and/or small figures inside. The toy forms a tube with an empty tube down the middle.]
but there’s a lot of cissexism in that post. So, new post!
Basically, the old post talked about how these toys taught kids to give hand jobs, and someone mentioned that you knew you were going to [like having sex with folks with vaginas or other fingerable orifices] if you stuck your finger inside instead. Then other folks started trying to figure out what the way they played with this toy meant.
And all I could think about was the time my 10 year old brother yelped in the back room. I went back to see what was going on, and the toy had burst on the floor. Then I looked at my brother’s face, which was covered in blue glitter. Did…you try to eat the toy? We don’t have any idea what’s in there! Do I need to take poison control measures?!
This is still the funniest memory I have of those toys.* About as funny as when he stuck one of those rubber half-spheres that you invert so that they pop off the table to his forehead while alone in the backseat during a 5 hour car ride. He had a bruise on his forehead for a good month.
*Don’t sexualize this, please. My brother was 10.
