It's The Virtual Girlfriend iPhone App!


I'm not usually one to cry sexism or yammer on about society's objectification of women, but even I am disgusted: This avatar of femininity is offensive to everyone. Vapid, giggly, and made up in a babydoll aesthetic that suggests women exist solely to fulfill the basest fantasies of men, this appalling spectacle fills me with self-loathing and a general distaste for the way in which heterosexual desire exerts itself on our culture. And the girl in the iPhone application is somewhat distasteful as well.

MOMO. Guys, accept no substitutes for the real thing!!

Are you into anime?

"If she talks back, just put her in your pocket!" Sounds like the basis for the next Men's Health column about how to be a good boyfriend.

talk about cherry picking. Fox in Japan? my god, they'd find a year's worth of WTF segments like this before they even got out of Narita. "The taxi drivers all wear white gloves. How dainty!!!!"

Still has more personality than Daryl Hannah.

I think Berlusconi needs both of these. One or the other would make a great addition to the Italian Parliament.

I find the simpering bimbos and their coy little sexy vibe, espesh the second one Courtney whatsherface as she reports on this, to be more offensive than Momo herself.

Is it so impossible to talk about something that insults their gender without the whole sexyface, eyelid-batting, flirty smile business? Ugh. These Fox News women are adults only chronologically. I've met 18 year old cocktail waitresses who seemed more matter-of-fact and grown up.

I can't decide who my virtual boyfriend will be, Josh Duhamel or Nacho Vidal. Can I download more than one?

you don't need to: James Franco.

The James Franco one doesn't get mad when you film him sleeping.

HiredGoons (#603)

There are certainly things I would like to film James Franco doing in bed; namely with myself in the homosexual fashion.
