Found an interesting article on a very amusing website, jezebel.com. Basically, Apple refused to engrave a song lyric by Alix Olson, which read, “I’ll give myself a lube job, shake my broomstick til my clit throbs.” for a female iPad customer.
Strangely, the words ‘dick’ and ‘penis’ were allowed however, another attempt replacing ‘penis’ with ‘vagina’ was somehow blocked too.
The writer, Justyn Hintze, surmised that Apple was so entrenched in misogyny and sexism, that it is actually terrified of women’s bodies and pleasure.
Who knows – maybe they just prefer cock! Or maybe, their beliefs are archaic and a bit more ‘old testament’ than we thought. And that they are still pretty wary of the power of women and apples.
Think I’ll try them out with the word ‘minge’ or ‘hootenanny’.
