You Haven't Truly Celebrated Pride Until You've Seen This Babadook Dildo

Presenting: THE BABADONG.

Unless you've been hiding in a dark basement haunting a mother and child, you've probably heard that the Babadook — the monster from the 2014 indie horror flick of the same name — has become the LGBT community's latest queer icon, just in time for Pride Month.

Our good pal Dooky was (partially) launched to internet fame by a Tumblr post randomly claiming the monster was gay, which, in true earnest Tumblr fashion, sparked a fierce "Babadiscourse" among users.

People latched onto the idea and seriously ran with it, creating truly glorious fan art that had everybody BabaSHOOK.

And because the internet is so wonderfully extra, it didn't stop there... *clears throat* THERE IS NOW A BABADOOK DILDO, AKA A BABADONG.

IMPORTANT STATS:

* High-quality silicone dildo

* Sturdy base, so you can strap it on and take it anywhere

* Dishwasher-safe

* Length of 7.5 inches from base to tip

* Girth of 5 3/4 in. around it thickest part

According to the Indiegogo page, the campaign is only for preorders so that Raygun can first gauge people's interest in the BabaDong.

Raygun has completed the sculpt, but he's waiting to see if demand is high enough before purchasing the materials necessary to mold, cast, and produce the dildos. If the $15,000 isn't met, backers will be refunded.

Raygun has completed the sculpt, but he's waiting to see if demand is high enough before purchasing the materials necessary to mold, cast, and produce the dildos. If the $15,000 isn't met, backers will be refunded.

BUT if Raygun does reach his goal, he plans to donate 10% of the money to The Lambert House, a Seattle-based center for LGBTQ+ youth that refers them to LGBT-friendly shelters, transitional housing, job training, GED programs, and low-cost colleges.

"Growing up I've experienced firsthand the hate and intolerance that people are capable of. It's easy for a young mind to be convinced to hate themselves for who they are," Raygun wrote on his Indiegogo campaign page. "The world is a beautiful place filled with amazing people who will love you for who you are. All you have to do is find them. Among many other things the Lambert house is there to help find those people."

So, like, do your part during Pride Month 2017 and donate to the BabaDong campaign???

In Raygun's own words: "Cozy up with the BabaDong! A creepy and fun novelty dildo!"

Even if you're too horrified to actually insert it into your body, this thing practically BELONGS on your bookshelf or coffee table — I mean, it's an automatic conversation-starter, if nothing else.

Just look at the attention to detail there!
