Ahh, another year, another trade show, and another round of typical snooty, overblown, self-important forced outrage about sexism in the industry. Because we all know that the games industry is the only one crass enough to use sex to sell products. And all those smoking hot leading women in all your favorite TV shows got their solely based on their talent alone. And all of the supermodel country music stars -not an ugly one in the bunch - well, there's just no talented fat and ugly women out there, dontcha know? Ugly women don't drink beer, so only drop dead gorgeous divas fit the bill for beer commercials. And of course we all know there are no fat ugly women in Texas, which is why every Dallas Cowboy cheerleader is a goddess. Nothing to do with their sex appeal at all. Nope. Nosiree.

Jesus people are hypocrites.

For me, it has less to do with that and more to do with the fact that by using sexy women, they're making it obvious the only people they're interested in attracting are straight men. What about those of us who aren't interested in staring at women? Why not try to sell to us, too? I don't mean by making "games for women" or any crap like that, or by putting "booth boys" in the booths. I mean by considering that maybe it's time to appeal to more than the old guard.

And thank you for objecting to the use of the word "slut." It's such an ugly word, and it's almost universally used to degrade women.

Well, for you there's the Planetside 2 booth guy: http://i.minus.com/jbxrZId5Df4YR0.jpg
