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:
- Donald Trump slammed the CIA after reports that the agency believes Russia used hacks to try to help him win.
- Rudy Giuliani is no longer being considered for a position in the Trump administration. Trump says the former NYC mayor withdrew his name.
- Fire investigators have ruled out a refrigerator as the cause of a warehouse fire that killed 36 people in Oakland, California.
- The world's oldest known breeding seabird just laid another egg. Her name is Wisdom and she's 66 🐦
