Anyone else as disgusted as I was to receive an e-mail like this from MSN?

MSN pimps

If so, give them feedback. Here is where you do it.

Re: “Get pimped” / “Pimp my live”

I was pretty disgusted today to find an e-mail about the above in my Inbox. Presumably this is some sort of jokey allusion to prostituted women and in particular to the men who exploit them and profit from their often desperate circumstances. Such a reference trivialises and glamorises the dangerous and difficult lives that most prostituted women lead – especially those who work for pimps. Encouraging MSN users to identify with pimps, and to associate “pimping” with something fun and funky, is downright irresponsible. Please stop.
