    In this instance it is probably correct that the trade show models are members of a separate industry that are contracted for that single event and just as likely to work an automotive show next week...

    Now now, you know those poor women can't stand up for themselves. And even if they did they'd probably lose their job.

    Far better that we preemptively put them out of work in the first place.

    I actually meant a version of want with more negative connotations, as you might use in the phrase "what makes you think I want to see you in your underwear".

    Anyway. I don't get where you're...

    Which is fine if you're you, which on closer inspection appears to be the case, but the apparent aim of all the stuff John is arguing for is not to make you happy, it's to involve more women in the...

    I'm not asking for the gender split to magically have become 50:50, but if it was 90:10, it should be 89:11 or 88:12 by now at least.

    Otherwise you're just asking people to make a bunch of changes...

    It's been 3 years or so, given there are articles from 2010 talking about the ban, so if there has been no change in the gender ratio by now, it isn't going to have made a difference.

    Thank you. This argument provides at least a substantial distinction between cosplayers and booth babes, which is what I had been finding lacking thus far.

    I still disagree that skimpily dressed...

    I went and did a bit of a google search. I concentrated on PAX since they have gone the ban booth babes route and so I think they offer the most interesting contrast.

    I can find weapon rules, but...

    I think part of where this falls down is that on the whole men are more visually stimulated than women, and so things that are pandering to men are immediately obvious as such. While I accept that...
