Women with Dummies
Are ventriloquist dummies any less creepy when being manipulated by women? Well, I don't see them as creepy at all, I see them as complicated, handmade and hand carved folk art objects with long and noble careers. The dummies, that is. The women with their hands up Woody's crotch might be a little strange, but the dolls (or using the proper term "vents" ) are fine with me.
Striving to be gender friendly in all endeavors, the author spent a decade collecting antique vintage photographs of ventriloquists with their tool, and while I cannot say total equality was achieved, I dare say you have never seen so many pictures of the "fairer" sex with blockheads before. Dummy dames?
