The French website AdopteUnMec.com (AdoptAGuy) lets female subscribers “shop” for guys. But they don’t actually pay for them — this is a dating site, not an escort service. And the “boutique” AdoptAGuy opened in Paris this week was just a promotional gag — the male models featured in doll-like boxes were not actual daters on the site, and were definitely not for sale. Nonetheless, some readers who commented at various news sites were shocked that such a thing could be allowed.

The women could look at actual male daters’ profiles — but those guys were not in boxes.
One Daily Mail commenter, though, pointed out that in some places, women are “on display” all the time:
- Authorities are removing Dakota Access pipeline protesters blocking roads and camped on private property.
- Apple just unveiled lighter, thinner MacBooks with touch-sensitive panels for instant emoji access (and other uses) 💻✨
- A Trump official says the campaign has "three major voter suppression operations underway."
- RIP — Vine says it's discontinuing its mobile app, effectively ending the 6-second video service 💀
