The auction for Daphne will resume as a new listing (http://www.ebay.com/itm/331086942934). Ebay pulled the previous listing after the nude photos of Daphne were reported for being “too graphic”. They couldn’t just remove those photos and have the auction resume, they had to delete the listing and we had to start a new one. We tried to make the new auction as close as to where the previous auction was at the time of removal. That means the auction started at the amount of the previous highest bid, and it will be a “1-day” auction that will end tomorrow.

If you want to see the full gallery of Daphne, you can find her photos here.

My friends!

I am shocked and appalled to learn that ebay had just removed my Daphne auction listing (#331084334645) only a few hours before the end, because my doll displays accurate female anatomy.

Ebay says that my doll is a sex doll, and it can not be listed in neither the art category, nor the doll category, and not even in the art-doll category. I will either have to remove any unclothed pictures of Daphne to re-list her as art doll, or list it as a sex toy. And this is despite the fact that there are currently dozens of art dolls listings on ebay showing full frontal nudity in the doll category. I have no idea why Enchanted Doll was targeted as being inappropriate, while other nude dolls are totally acceptable. What is wrong with Enchanted Doll?

I’m disgusted and exasperated to tears by this institutionalized hatred towards female body. Why is ebay perpetuating this attitude towards women? Why are even naked dolls considered too vile and offensive for our eyes?!! Why is the world forcing me to feel so dirty and ashamed of myself? Why is it forcing our daughters to grow up feeling ashamed of themselves, instead of feeling proud? I only have questions, and no answers.

I’m trying to figure out what to do about Daphne auction as quickly as I can. In the meantime you could try calling ebay to convince them to resume the listing. Stay tuned for urgent updates.

***UPDATE:

Daphne has been relisted herehttp://www.ebay.com/itm/An-Enchanted-Doll-by-Marina-Bychkova-Costumed-amp-Engraved-OOAK-Porcelain-BJD-/331086942934?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276 

We tried to list Daphne in the same state as when it was deleted  by ebay. The auction is a “1-day” auction so it will end tomorrow, and the start price is what the highest bid was at the time of removal. Sorry for the inconvenience.
