MissBimbo.com, Where Breast Implants are Only 11,500 Bimbo Dollars!

Thanks Jacks for the heads up on this one...

Imagine you were a 7 year old girl. Done? Good. Now imagine someone told you about this awesome game where you competed to become the "hottest, coolest, most famous bimbo." Done? Ok. Now imagine you could attain that by purchasing your "bimbo" boob jobs and by putting her on crash diets. Fan-fucking-tastic. You think i'm joking? I seriously couldn't make this stuff up if i tried.

A new website that launched last month in the UK encourages girls to compete against each other by earning "bimbo dollars" to purchase things like sexy outfits, plastic surgery, and diet pills. (Breast implants cost 11,500 bimbo dollars, diet pills cost 200 bimbo dollars). When new members register, they are provided with a naked virtual bimbo to "look after."


The aim is to become 'the coolest, richest and most famous bimbo in the whole world' and gamers must keep her at her the target weight through diet pills.


When they run out of virtual cash, contestants send texts costing £1.50 each or transfer funds to top up their accounts.


The creator of MissBimbo.com, Nicolas Jacquart, weighed in:


The 23-year-old Web designer from Tooting, south London, who created it was quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: "It is not a bad influence for young children. They learn to take care of their bimbos. The missions and goals are morally sound and teach children about the real world."


He added: "The breast operations are just one part of the game and we are not encouraging young girls to have them, just reflecting real life."

My birthday is coming up - can someone gift wrap this fool for me so i can punch him in the face? Thanks.

This is just one step away from Real Doll (Enter at your own risk, graphic nudity)

YUCK.

(oh and not to mention "MISS" Bimbo... couldn't she have at least been a Ms?)

holy f-word! that's insanity!

i just....wow....don't know what to say!

Oh. my. god.

A man created this game. Go figure. The forums are full of middle school kids. Disgusting.

Smirking Cat said...

I had the same reaction; I wasn't surprised at all the creator was a man. And that he sees no issue with it. If it was intended sarcastically, as a slap at these attitudes, it might be funny. Expecting girls to take it seriously and calling girls bimbos as "real life" is disgusting. Feminist Gal, I just wrote a post today about sexism and little kids. Not pushing my own blog, I swear, but I was interested in your input on the post.

BTW, if you get the jerk for your birthday, can he be the pinata after you punch him?

this is outrageous. creators of kids' webgames should request "parent" as the first line on the resume. but if wishes were ponies, men would look at our eyes instead of our boobs

Horrifying.

I'm sick.

I disagree. I'm a fan of breast implants if they make you feel better about yourself. Not encouraging people to do it for significant others or social climbing, but doing it for yourself is a perfectly fine reason. People who are anti- are the ignorant ones =)

What's on the agenda for next week? An all out war against People Magazine?

FeministGal said...

If it's a personal choice, i think breast implants are perfectly fine. This, however, is not the case of a website targeting girls ages 7-17. Do you think when these girls "choose" to get implants (in the game or in real life) they are doing it for themselves? Of course not. They are doing it for an unattainable image of "beauty" that media has set up.

I find the argument that breast implants are a "personal choice" a bit strange. There's no inherent connection between your sense of self-worth and the size of your breasts - the only reason to think that bigger breasts == i am better is that the patriarchy tells you that.

What does it mean to choose breast implants "for yourself"? They have no meaning outside of their social context. Why aren't people getting silicon bags implanted in their shoulders? Because no one is telling them that their self-worth depends on it. Fuck breast implantation.

Holy smack I LOVE this site! I have donated my hard earned money to it (I am 23). It is actually making ME a better person just by playing it. You guys don't knock it till you try it. Its not even as bad as it is made to sound. I am actually logged in right now.
