Nielsen Study Finds Women Don’t Know What They Want

Nielsen, the company that’s indirectly responsible for the cancellation of Firefly (friggin’ ratings, what do they know?) has released a smartphone study that confirms what sexist, chauvinistic men have known for years: women don’t know what they want.

When asked what smartphone operating system users planning to upgrade would like for their next phone, 14.9% of men said they were undecided, while a substantially higher percentage, 23.8% of women had no idea what they planned to get. The difference between them, almost 9% of women polled, is a larger group than either gender’s subgroup that said they wanted a Windows Mobile phone. This, of course, raises the question: People still want Windows Mobile phones?

Now, I’m sure some naysayers will come along and say “How dare you! A small percentage of women being undecided on their cellphone purchase which could be as far as a year away doesn’t imply that an entire gender is incapable of making decisions!” Well, to you I would ask one simple question: If we can’t extrapolate the (sometimes perfectly rational) opinions and desires of a percentage of a type of people and apply them to the entire group, where did we get stereotypes in the first place? Hmm?

I think I’ve made my point.
