“Pimp” as a badge, TV culture and iPhone apps

Today I was notified via email that I can earn thee “Pimp” badge on Glue.
Well, no thanks.

It is bad enough that our TV culture turns pimping into a glamourous endeavor, without our social tools and iPhone apps doing the same. And then one wonders why more women aren’t involved in the technology world. They don’t want to have to get a pimp, I guess.

    • No it wouldn’t be progress but it wouldn’t be a step back either, from what I know, children are the ones who copy what they see on tv, not adults. by earning the “pimp” sticker you are showing your dedication to the show, no that you make prostitutes give you money in exchange for providing them with some unpleasant company.
