  1. I doubt either Amazon or eBay will stop selling them since both are selling stereotypically racist golliwogs of every description.

  2. What’s really offensive is it’s such a grotesque looking item, a major fail.

    I think it’s awesome! Hysterically funny and realistically what a lot of women want anyway!………If we can’t laugh at ourselves then what’s the point?

  4. I’ve seen the inflatable doll online and it looks too butch to be truly gay. Are we sure it is not just a “Metrosexual” straight guy doll?

    I guess I am too old to be gay; this stuff just seems like silly nonsense and not something to get riled up about. Have we no sense of humor left?

    Just so you know, Tesco no longer stocks ANY gay publications on its magazine shelves. When I wrote to ask why, their response was they weren’t selling well enough.

    1. Am sure I bought this months copy of Diva in Tesco the other week? I don’t look at gay men’s mags but am sure GT was on sale on the reverse shelf!?

  7. It’s on Amazon sold through a ‘partner’ which is this company below, in case anyone would like to complain directly to them. All this information is in the public domain.

    The inflatable ‘Gay Best Friend’ is sold online through their own website too.

    The ability to laugh and enjoy sarcastic humor, or to allow others to enjoy this type of humor, is failing in today’s society.

    Will be purchasing as soon as possible
