Can Someone Objectify me on Lulu ? – Girls-Only App That Objectifies Men


This might just be the best way to address Gender Inequality.

In London, two long-time friends Alison Schwartz and Alexandra Chong have an app that helps women anonymously gossip about men.  On Lulu, men aren’t allowed in, and women can anonymously rate them without their consent.  The men, who are all guys the women know via Facebook, are rated on a scale of one to ten. Their profiles are automatically pulled in when the women they know access Lulu. When rating a man, women are prompted to share how they know him (friend, ex-girlfriend, etc), then asked to check off all the good and bad qualities about the man that apply.

The tone is playful and funny. Quality hashtags include #Big Feet and #One Woman Man for pros, and #Obsessed With His Mom and #Napoleon Complex for cons. The women can see how many people have favorited a profile (people following that man’s profile for real-time updates and alerts), and how many women have viewed the profile.

This may be the first step towards reconciliation between the sexes. According to this, objectification was never the issue, it was always that objectification didn’t lead to an increase in $ or wealth. Also many people have gotten engaged because of this app and doomed themselves to a mediocre life. They seem to have all the bases covered.

  1. I wonder how these guys will react to being objectified? Some will undoubtedly see humor behind it, but others will be very hurt. I’m not sure how I feel about *anyone* being objectified frankly…especially since I try my damnedest to follow the Golden Rule.

  2. Awesome! Now women don’t have to gang up in toilets anymore to exchange info on ‘how he’s in the sack’.

    What can we learn from this?

    As long as there are people making money from the world’s problems, they’ll never end.

  3. Very cool! I don’t know if it will truly help, men don’t respond the same way to objectification that women do, but it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out…

  4. Mr. Mary, have you seen the Dove commercial that shows how women often describe themselves as less physically attractive…and the followup parody that “shows” how men describe themselves as way better looking?

    I don’t have the links to them right now, but they are the 2 most recent blog posts on Erudite Knight’s wordpress. He and most of his male commenters believe that the only reason the real commercial turned out the way it did, is because the women were all of the age where they hit The Wall (aka 30+). I think that it’s because we womens are used to judging our looks very harshly.

    I’d be curious to get your input, if it pleases you.
