Apparently, I have a girlie phone.
CNET reports that a recent study shows that women prefer iPhones, while men prefer Android phones.
That's really not a surprise. Because studies have been showing that for a while, just nobody ever made a big deal about it. For example, Business Insider reported in 2010 that iPhone was the choice of women, while Android phones were the choice of men in a study by Nielsen.
There's also a survey from 2011 that indicates women prefer iPhones, while men prefer Android.
So, this latest report shouldn't surprise anyone. My phone is an iPhone, which makes it a girlie phone. And I'm okay with that.
You see, there's nothing wrong with girlie things. No, I'm not trying to act like some metrosexual -- which is, I think, someone who's sexually attracted to the public transportation system. No, I'm simply okay with stuff being girlie.
Like Secret deodorant. I use Secret. Well, not all the time. But, if it's on sale, yeah, I'll pick it up. Started doing that in the Army. You see, on a field exercise, a lot of soldiers will forget stuff, or run out of stuff, and want to borrow yours. So, after my first field exercise, next time I went to the field, I took my wife's Secret deodorant. They stopped asking to borrow it. And, Secret works. So, if that's what's on sale, I'm picking up some Powder Fresh Scent solid.
Or Lady Bic shavers. They used to come in pink. And, they used to be the only disposable razors that had that strip that made shaving more comfortable. When you're in the field, and it's cold and you're standing next to a HMMWV looking into the mirror trying to get yesterday's facial growth off, that little strip helps. Plus, others quit asking to borrow a razor blade from me, because mine were pink. The Lady Bic razors come in other colors now, but they still make some pretty pink ones.
So, no, I'm not afraid of using a girlie phone. My iPhone does just fine. And, if you have an Android phone, it probably works just fine for you, too. But, I like my iPhone, and my next phone will likely be another iPhone.
So what if it's a girlie phone. Think about it, fellas. Don't you like girlie things? Really, admit it. You like girlie things. Like girlie parts. You know, the parts the girls got that the guys don't got. You like the girlie parts. And so do I.
And if that includes an iPhone, I'm okay with that. And, if it helps with getting access to other girlies things, I'm more than okay with it.
