US House Votes to Ban Child Sex Dolls and Robots

It seems nauseating to think that we needed a law for this, but the US House of Representatives recently voted to ban the sale and import of child sex dolls and robots that “normalize sex between adults and minors.”  The bill was called the CREEPER Act, which stands for Curbing Realistic Exploitative Electronic Pedophilic Robots Act.

The Russia Times ran a story about the new law as evidence of Western decadence and moral decay. The Russians may have a point.  When our federal government has to ban something so heinous and evil as lifelike child sex dolls (and robots!) one wonders about the moral health of our society.

Child sex dolls usually come from China, Hong Kong, or and Japan. They are often labeled as mannequins or models to avoid detection by law enforcement.

There are a few scientists who believe such devices lower the instances of pedophilia. However, no scientific literature supports these arguments. The widespread opinion is that use of such dolls and robots desensitizes the user, creating a risk of reinforcing pedophilic behavior.

“Once an abuser tires of practicing on a doll, it’s a small step to move on to a child. My bill takes necessary steps to stop these sickening dolls from reaching our communities,” said co-sponsor NY Republican Dan Donovan.

The bill received widespread bipartisan support. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte acknowledged that he was sickened by the fact that such legislation needed to be introduced in the first place.

“I am saddened that there are people in this world who would create realistic child sex dolls and distraught that there are people in this world who would buy them,” Goodlatte stated.

We can only hope other countries ban such evil devices – the sooner the better.
