What is it about hot chicks holding iPhones that makes you nerds go nuts? Here’s one from the guy who publishes iPhone Savior . He took a perfectly nice shot of Megan Fox in her undies and added an iPhone to the photo. Why? I have no idea. But as longtime readers know, I’m really, really appalled by this kind of stuff. And I will keep drawing attention to it until it stops. I mean it.

Just look at this photograph of Olivia Munn from “Attack of the Show.” She’s in her underwear! My goodness. Apple faithful, this must be stopped. Go here to see the rest of this filthy smut and to voice your outrage! Yes, they want you to vote for the sexiest woman. But I say forget voting and protest instead! It’s sickening enough that Wired.com is exploiting these poor creatures, but now they also want you to objectify and rank them, like so many, I don’t know, rankable objects.
Also, why does this list not contain photographs of top geeks like Dave Winer and his friend Naked Jen? Because the editors at Wired.com are sexist and lookist and have a narrow, stereotyped view of what’s beautiful, that’s why. I mean just look at that photo of Olivia Munn. Look at it! Now look again. Well I guess that’s what passes for “beauty” in this twisted age. That’s the image that the sicko media force-feeds us, and we all buy into it.
Shame on you, Wired.com. Shame! Running photographs of barely clad women in a transparent ploy to goose your page view stats. Ugly stuff.

Check out this weird video on Fleshbot about a new application for the iPhone that lets you practice rubbing … well, go see for yourself. Warning: not safe for work.

Look, it’s bad enough that Valleywag ran this item (here) in a shameless attempt to drum up traffic. What’s even more shameless is the idea of this blog using that same photo on our blog with some lame excuse about it being Apple-related because it was snapped in one of our stores. Well, namaste, Valleywag. I honor the place where your content and mine become one. PhotoCrankers, start your engines. Much love to Pravin in London for the tip. Peace, brother!
UPDATE: To all those who’ve written in asking, No this is not CNET reporter Ina Fried. But the resemblance is striking.

To the many members of the Apple faithful who’ve sent me this advertisement and alerted me to this new outrage, let me say this: Thank you, thank you, thank you. We must keep up the pressure and stop this shameful sexploitation. Namaste, dear readers. Remain vigilant!

Dear reader David sent this in saying he spotted it on Mac360.com. No idea what it’s about. But folks, let me say this again, using attractive young women to sell consumer electronics is wrong. Peace out.

Apple faithful, I’m sorry, but I really do not approve of this exploitation of women, and I’m sick of having frigtards try to attach our brand to this kind of thing, and I know you share my revulsion but we have to keep shining a light on these horrible incidents because sunlight is the best disinfectant, as my good friend Chuck D of Public Enemy (who by the way was just raving to me, in slant rhyme, about his iPhone) once sang. For the record, this is not iJustine, but there is a striking resemblance, except, if memory serves me correctly, iJ actually looks way better than this with her clothes off. But I digress.
This outrageous photo comes from Macenstein’s “Chick of the Month” competition, which I’m sorry to say is just a complete abomination. To make matters worse, Gimozodo picked it up and ran more naughty pictures on their site.
Folks, I’m begging you: Don’t do this. Bokay? Don’t. Stop. Don’t. Stop. Don’t. Stop. [More porno please and stop pretending you know Chuck D because you don't, Ed.]

Look. I’m not kidding. This stuff has to stop. And stop now. I mean it. You guys can’t keep using women’s bodies to sell consumer electronics. It’s wrong. Okay? This stuff just makes me sick. I know it’s horrible to look at, and I know that posting this is going to cost me some readers because people will get so upset, just like they did over the Britney va-jay-jay item recently. But I’ve made this issue — the exploitation of women — my personal crusade and I’m not going to quit until this kind of thing stops happening. I mean it. Don’t even test me on this. I urge everyone who is as outraged as I am to go here to the offending site where this was posted and let them know how angry you are. Peace out.

Vonage, look. Hear me on this. I know you’re in trouble. Your business sucks, and you’re getting a little desperate. But it is wrong to exploit women to sell products. It is wrong to use sex to sell products. Bokay? And no, it’s not somehow nicer if you speak French and call it a branlette espagnole. It’s still wrong. Furthermore, this disgusting Web site of yours is offensive and nasty and should be taken down immediately. Folks, where’s the outrage? Where are the bloggers on this? You know who else should be ashamed? All these lame-ass B-list celebs who whored themselves out at this party and pretended they really give a shit about Vonage. A pox upon you, I say!
To my readers who are upset about having to look at this, I’m sorry. But the only way to deal with these things is to call people out and shame them. Yes, it’s awful. But we must do it. We must look at it. Stare at it. Get angry. Get worked up. Then do something! Take action! Now will someone please get me a box of Kleenex? Thank you.

Freetards, what part of “Don’t exploit women” do you not understand? Folks, I know it’s not pleasant to have to look at this stuff or even to know that it exists in the world. But we have to look at this. And we have to condemn it. Because this has to stop. For the children. You know — the ones who don’t have maps. Or something. Shame on you, Mozilla. Shame, shame, shame. Nice browser, though. I’ll give you that.
