11 Words Apple Lets You Engrave On An iPad Instead Of “Vagina”

If Apple doesn’t allow the word “vagina” to be engraved in an iPad, what words will it let you use?

1. When blogger Justyne Hintze attempted to have the word “vagina” engraved on her iPad, Apple’s website rejected it due to “inappropriate language”. When she tried the word “penis”, she was taken to the checkout page.

Hintze, a self-described sex-positive feminist, said on her blog Just Lust that when she spoke to a female customer service representative at Apple about the issue, the employee “explicitly noted the sexism, but said there was nothing she could do”.

3. BuzzFeed wondered: If Apple does not allow the word “vagina” to be engraved on an iPad, what words will it let you use?

4. When we tried to use the word “dick”, it was accepted.

5. It also let us use the word “penis”.

6. When we tried to use the word “vagina”, it was rejected.

7. It did not let us use the word “clit” either.

8. Both “clit” and “vagina” triggered an “inappropriate language” alert. However, an engraving with the word “dick” in it takes you to the next page to finalise your order, but an engraving with the word “vagina” does not.

9. We thought we’d try out some more words. Apple let us use “cockwomble”.

10. It let us use “Vagatron”.

11. It let us use “dickweasel”.

12. It let us use “bollockfaced dicknubbins”.

13. It let us use the word “Dickasaurus”.

14. It let us use “thundercunt”.

15. It let us use the word “Wankmaster”.

16. It let us use “wanky bollocks”.

17. And finally, Apple even let us use “twatlantic ocean”.

18. BuzzFeed has contacted Apple to ask the reasoning behind prohibiting the word “vagina” from being engraved on iPads.
