Of course, the quote I refer to is by Erica Watson-Currie of Newport Beach, CA:
She told the L.A. Times about her problems typing on her iPhone.MISOGYNY??
"Considering ergonomics and user studies indicating men and women use their fingers and nails differently, why does Apple persist in this misogyny?" Ms. Watson-Currie wrote.
First, let's look at what that word is supposed to mean, hmm?
the hatred of women by men : she felt she was struggling against thinly disguised misogyny.
mi•sog•y•nous |-nəs| |məˈsɑdʒənəs| adjective
ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: from Greek misos ‘hatred’ + gunē ‘woman.’
So now I want to be very clear on this. In Ms. Watson-Currie's world, the fact that she might have to change her manicure to use a PHONE is a sign that Apple has an INSTITUTIONAL-LEVEL HATRED OF WOMEN.
Holy Fucking Mongoose Tits, George is barely cold, and some self-righteous bint is comparing a minor problem, easily solved by a new manicure, with hatred of women. What, if she breaks a heel on a sewer grate, the water department is misogynistic? But Erica Watson-Currie is not alone.
The tenor of the situation was summarized by another woman reader: "Why are they still discriminating against those of us with fingernails? ... Guess it's a Blackberry for me :("<Old Southern Woman>Well bless your heart</Old Southern Woman>
Honey, it's not discrimination against people with fingernails. Everyone has fingernails. It's part of your DNA. It just means that to do certain things, like play guitar, climb rocks, or use an iPhone, you have to keep them trimmed short. It's not misogyny, it's just that some things don't work well with long fingernails. Now you just run along, and let the adults talk a bit more here on the porch.
Too many stupid people, not enough tasers. That's what's wrong with the world.
