Mum’s campaign to ban child sex doll from Australia

A Queensland mum has launched a petition seeking to ban the importation of child sex dolls into Australia.

Mellissa Evans’ petition on change.org. demands Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk ban the importation of the dolls, which are currently available for Australian delivery from several websites.
The dolls, which are made to resemble children as young as five years old, have been marketed and shipped around the world for more than a decade. They are shipped in clothing, lingerie or naked and have a variety of facial expressions, from smiling to crying or looking like they are in pain.
Their creator, self-confessed paedophile Shin Takagi, believes his creations reduce child sex attacks by satisfying the needs of paedophiles and eliminating their urge to target real children.
“I am helping people express their desires, legally and ethically. It's not worth living if you have to live with repressed desire,” he told the Atlantic.
But Evans believes the lifelike dolls will only normalise and strengthen users’ desires to attack a real child.
“I do not believe in any way that this is an appropriate deterrent against children being sexually abused,” she wrote.
