Who said this was ok?
Collective Shout exposed Wish Shopping for selling child sex dolls months ago.
The popular online shopping app boasting 300 million subscribers around the world, responded to complaints about the dolls by saying it would remove the items from its sales platform. It appeared they removed some of the items but many remained on the site.
Follow up complaints to Wish have been ignored. Needless to say, Wish hasn't responded with the urgency this deserves.
Child sex dolls are illegal in the UK and Australia. Speaking out against Wish Shopping's child sex dolls, Paul Green, Member of the NSW Legislative Council higlighted the stiff penalties for importing Child Sex Dolls into Australia:
Recently the Australian Border Force has intercepted the importation of nine child sex doll across Australia. The Australian Border Force has committed to pursuing the full force of the law in these cases, with penalties including fines of up to $450,000 and imprisonment of up to 10 years against anyone attempting to import these objects.
The US - where Wish Shopping Headquarters are located - is following the lead of Australia and the UK. A bill to outlaw child sex dolls under the proposed "Creeper Act" is currently before the US Senate having already passed the US House of Representatives. The Curbing Realistic Exploitative Electronic Pedophilic Robots (CREEPER) Act will ban the importation and transportation of child sex dolls.
Wish allows businesses and manufacturers from around the world to sell through its app. By continuing to turn a blind eye to - and profit from - the criminal actions of businesses trading in child sexual abuse material, Wish is complicit. The company is worth 8.5 billion dollars, we cannot be silent while Wish profits from the sexual exploitation of children.

We've been challenging Wish shopping app to remove child-like sex dolls off their platform. The response from Wish on our Facebook page suggested they were not aware of the items that had “made it onto [their] platform” and that they were committed to removing such items “when [they] find them”.
But after many weeks the items are still there along with a whole range of horrific items. In addition to child sex dolls, we have found realistic silicone replica vaginas, female torsos and backsides, replica female mouths and throats, disembodied child sex doll legs, feet, and heads for sale, all for men’s sexual use. Wish are not a small company. As of 2016, Wish had about 100 million users.
According to The Guardian a surge in the number of seizures of child-like sex dolls by border officers has led investigators to identify dozens of previously unknown suspected paedophiles.
