Who Says Pretty Girls Don’t Use Androids?
Does your phone depict whether you err on the side of geeky or pretty? Apparently some think so. The CEO of the Android handset-making INQ took improper generalization and sexism to a whole new level with a recent quote about girls not being able to use Androids because, in other words, it makes them geeky, not pretty. In fact, his direct quote was:
“If you go to a nightclub in any city in the world, the pretty girl has an iPhone or a BlackBerry. She doesn’t have an Android phone. She has no emotional attachment to an Android phone. It’s too complicated. It’s a geek device, it’s all wrong.”
Before you get mad and defensive, just know there is a little truth to his words. Android is, technically, a geekdom, offering the most accessible platform in the world. But to completely write it off for the nightclub-going ladies is completely truthful. Which kind of phone do you have? An iPhone, Android, or something else? Do you think your phone helps defy your personality?
