Feminists are pissed off once more at ‘teh Menz’ blatant misogyny in creating an iPhone APP of topless girls to be sold on iTunes with proceeds going towards Prostate Cancer research. They’re horrified over the fact that innocent young women are being used solely for their boobage to raise funds for a cause that has little to no impact on women! They’re indignant over the fact that boobs are being used to raise awareness for something other than boobs of all things!
The video on the website promoting the app shows women in various ‘roleplay‘ outfits and varying states of undress, seductive poses and heavy sexual innuendo with them handling props and toys mimicking parts of the male body. Each of the women seductively suggests to the men to get regular prostate checkups to maintain their health and keep all their working parts in order.
It’s Facebook page went viral and got 2.5 million views in the first week alone — the campaign is back with more running off it’s slogan “hot, shirtless women talking about the importance of early detection for ‘keeping it up’.”
Women’s groups are furious that women are being used in such a blatantly sexually suggestive manner, to an app that can be accessed by anyone on iTunes. They state emphatically that this app sends a clear message to men that:
“…women are solely toys to be used, ogled and treated in a sexual manner at a moments notice, the amount of time required to turn on your phone. Men have always had access to porn, but now it’s gone mainstream and this vulgar display of objectification is now accepted in the name of Cancer awareness! Women are more than just sexually dressed up caricatures to be drooled over by men and the Cancer Society should know better!”
The Cancer Society of Canada has not responded to the comments yet. Full story link below.
