Can you breathe life into it?
Ever since helping bring my children into this world and literally being there with my bare hands ready to catch the child as it entered (and exited), I’ve had a profound veneration for women. To be clear, I mean wom(b)en. There is something incredibly magical about the female powers of birth and rearing.
While men tend to exhibit obvious external strengths, womben seem to have always had a profound inner strength that makes them able to shape every single human form, male or female. No matter how strong, intelligent or accomplished the person, in the beginning it was a womban that shaped him or her . And to make matters more impressive I then witnessed how for two full years my wife fed our children entirely through the use of her own mammary glands. And goodness my kids got so incredibly FAT (lol!).
So as a tribute to these womben goddesses around the world I’d like to introduce Ranger XX and Ranger XY. For four years Ranger has been an androgynous doll, but I found that everybody always referred to it as a “he” So in order to bring balance, the two are now separate.
For those whom might be triggered by this, bear in mind I didn’t call them “he” or “she” I’ve called them “XX” and “XY” and the word Ranger is already gender neutral. So I hope, on this mother’s day, you’ll all join me in recognizing the goddesses that created us and nurtured us. They deserve to be celebrated and cherished. And yes, while it appears many in politics are welcoming the mechanization of the sexes I’ve chosen to use the term womben to draw a distinction so nobody gets offended by this. Yes, I do believe a distinction needs to be made.
Ok now to some technical stuff. For those whom already own a Ranger model, all you have to do to make your Ranger into an XX is to purchase the XX head and XX torso. Both of these come with the neck and peanut joint all of which, combined, makes the XX armature slightly shorter with more feminine features. You can purchase these pieces individually here:
The far less expensive way to do this though is to purchase the add-on at the time of purchasing your Ranger model. There’s a drop-down now that allows you to add all the components for the other gender for only an additional $20.
