Thread: Apple doesn't like vaginas!

  1. #1

    Default Apple doesn't like vaginas!

    I think this is a wonderful article..


    This week, under somewhat unique circumstances, an American woman discovered that Apple wouldn't engrave the word "vagina" onto her iPad. The reason? The word is considered “inappropriate language” by the company.



    However, the female customer soon discovered that "penis" and "dick" were acceptable. This strange breed of sexism isn’t new to Apple — it has already been discovered that its autocorrect function would rather assume you’re talking about bacon or cabins rather than vaginas.

    All of this would be laughable, maybe even trivial, if it didn’t belong to a wider trend of people who are so uncomfortable with the word "vagina" that they want to censor it.

    In order to combat all of these issues, we need to stop stigmatising and shaming women’s bodies. Everyone — individuals, governments and companies alike — has a part to play in this.

    We need to be talking about vaginas much more. We need to do so candidly, intelligently, with respect and without censorship. Most importantly, we need to be talking about the rights of the humans that they belong to.

    Funny cause half of their customers who are using their devices all have a vagina and with vagina being the proper medical term for ones MINGE, I can't see how it's inappropriate.

    Well I am using the new iPhone 6 just now and I just wrote the word vagina and minge all in one sentence without having any problems.

    It was not the apple on the tree that was the problem it was the juice of the pair on the ground
