*screams internally out of desperate need*
Greaaaaattt incredibly adorable nerdy undergarments designed exclusively to suit cis-gender hetero couples.
Not like the rest of us would have been interested.
Just to let you know they can be altered and customized to your liking. :)

I usually like much needed merch stuff, but lock & key symbolism for genitals is awkward. A vagina is not a treasure chest for unlocking by one key. The whole concept of the lock and key metaphor for genitals is used to shame women for sexuality; hell, it’s even one of the most popular metaphors used by abstinence-only education.
Just to clear things up because there have been a lot of comments about this “lock and key” metaphor and other crazy notions. I didn’t even know what that was until it was reblogged and mentioned. I wasn’t trying to shame women nor was I trying to discriminate same sex couples or transgender people. You all were looking far too into it. It’s just a funny little metaphor for the penis and vagina but as I have said before you can always customize it to your liking. Just b/c (as any other business that was’t niche for LGBT would be) they are geared toward hetero sexual couples doesn’t mean I’m a hater. I most defiantly am not.
Calling your customers crazy will not win over anyone. Def not buying from much needed merch again now.
I’m sorry but I wasn’t referring to you personally or calling anyone crazy. I just thought it was kind of absurd how people took it in the wrong direction and made outlandish assumptions.
I’m with MNM on this one. There’s no reason to assume that she was trying to alienate anyone with this product. It’s just supposed to be cute. By saying that it subjugates women or shames them in any way is reading too far into things. And what’s worse is saying that this is offensive to gay couples. That’s just silly. Lets just all settle down and try to appreciate the light hearted nature of this stupid underwear.
Edit: I think the master sword pair is empowering to women. It implies that your vagina has time travelling capabilities, so… That sounds like a major win for vaginas everywhere.
