Muslims are disgusted by an adult toy on sale in Worcester because they say it disrespects the prophet Mohammed.This could get ugly (ht: Dag). Where do these Orientalist stereotypes of Arab men, and the degrading pandering of them to English women (and men?), come from anyway? If it all weren't so ludicrous, i'd be appalled at our western decadence.
Adult store Ann Summers, in the High Street, is selling a blow-up male doll called Mustafa S**g.
The name of the novelty toy has outraged Muslims living in the city, who have said the name insults the Prophet Mohammed, who is also known by the title al-Mustafa.
Jacqueline Gold, the owner of Ann Summers nationwide, said: "We don't want to offend anyone. This feels like political correctness gone mad.
"If anyone has a better name for a blow-up doll, please contact us."
