    I apologise - replace flirting with little clothes. I feel you are trying to miss the forest for the trees. I do not wish to put heavy emphasis on appearance. I want to put emphasis on the intention...

    Booth babes are payed to be scantily dressed. They do it for my benefit. Cosplayer's dress scantily because they want to. It is they who reap the benefit.

    But three years is still not long enough. A 2% shift in the gender split would be statistically insignificant and would be written off as yearly fluctuations. No one expects the world to change...

    I feel there is another way to view this issue, putting the important issue of women's representation aside for the moment. If someone organised for a stripper to come to any event I had anything to...

    But really, you are actually being an arsehole and I hope that between all your sassy retorts you find the heart to reign it in a little.

    You can do as you wish, but historical evidence would suggest that RPS only hire when they need to.

    You are being seriously patronising. I had no idea from your initial story - this `See Spot Run' version cleared things up for me.

    I am over it. I am not angry. I am just sick of it. Now I am politely asking you to stop defending the inappropriate actions of others.

    Please?

    It seems like Western society is yet to come to full terms with rape: what it is and how to deal with it. There are still current issues, like victim blaming and "they didn't say no", which sit...
