Whatever tickles one's fancy , I guess.Laughing

Should probably add a NSFW tag.

Let me see... Trying to look "funny" and "clever" and "smart" with a product that was launched 12 months ago and putting a sexist twist to it?

Not funny. Actually pueril.

I find it interesting that apps like this get approved whilst Apple are quite trigger happy at rejecting others...

wat?

Not everyone is able to keep up with every new product that is launched. Some people find things like this later than others and as OP mentioned, he thought it was a joke at first.

A sexist twist?

"Sexism, also known as gender discrimination or sex discrimination, is the application of the belief or attitude that there are characteristics implicit to one's gender that indirectly affect one's abilities in unrelated areas."

Please explain how any of OP's comments were sexist? OP was simply highlighting a product - in this case targeted to but not necessarily exclusively for women - that he found humorous which has likely been done countless other times on this site.

As mentioned previously, this is interesting considering Apple's tight control over their application store and I think this topic could be worthy of discussion.

I really don't want to come to Geekzone to read about sex toys nor answer questions from a member looking for satanic jewellery to 'worship lucifer'.

I'm sure the boss has provided some guidance to said member and hopefully his future threads will be tech related or a little more palatable.

If sex toys and lucifer are your thing I'm sure there are plenty of other forums out there for such discussion, perhaps try some of the new .xxx domain sites just launched.

+1, I didn't mind the lucifer one so much, but posting a link like this without a clear message that is is a sex toy isn't really appropriate. I suppose it serves me right for just clicking links without checking what they are for first. 

I wasn't really offended but didn't find it tasteful.
