Looks like RPS has lost their relevance, they can target the small percentage of the 20% of hardcore female gamers who actually believe their crap.

The women in the "Hot 40" article were not forced into wearing the clothes they had on. I don't think women in the gaming industry want to be forced to wear the burka either. Given some of the women in the list were not very attractive, I'm not even sure the article was about attractiveness (or there aren't a lot of good looking women in tech).

Even if it was, attractiveness is a tool that gets some people ahead, and some of them are using it by dressing the way they do. It's not any different than any industry, male or female.

If sites like Machima want to use quasi-porn to increase views on their videos, they can. Everyone's a willing participant - so no problem.

The article had no examples of real sexism, just another attempt to Bobbitt men for some cheap ratings.
