Probably not the best place for this poll, given the demographic ^-^ but I'm going to stick it up there anyway.

I choose this video because it has actual glamour models arguing this and the female host exudes a very jealous attitude which I think is the main issue here, jealous bitter women trying to ruin other womens lives. However, if you want it written or are on a time limit here is a link to a somewhat skewed opinion article http://mancunion.com/2018/02/12/feminism-f1-grid-girls/ and a snippet from a more information based article on wiki.

 "After a round of talks with broadcasters, the Professional Darts Corporation announced on 27 January 2018 that it would discontinue the use of walk-on girls in darts tournaments. The decision has encountered a backlash from some fans, players and models.[50] On 31 January 2018, Formula 1 management announced that it would end the practice of grid girls, who accompany the racers to the track, a tradition that "has been a staple of Formula 1 Grands Prix for decades", stating that "[they] feel this custom does not resonate with [their] brand values and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms."[51] The move has drawn criticism from former grid girls, including British model Kelly Brook. Former F1 executive Bernie Ecclestone and Red Bull Racing leader Christian Horner also expressed disapproval."

I think that's a bit over simplified. The same people are in support of people like Bruce jenner doing nude shots on a magazine. They are hardly puritans.

hypocritical puritans* 



One of the rare instances where I can agree with something you said. It really is all about crab mentality, i.e. jealous women purposefully trying to ruin it for women who are qualified for such jobs.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I just read the F1 Grid girls are also being discontinued, this is sad news. I'll update OP once I look more into it.



I don't need promo girls.



I find the line of thinking used in this instance very dangerous. In defense of the rights of a group of people that is supposedly being affected of certain misdemeanors, they've ended up taking their jobs away, instead of pushing forward more safety nets against those same misdemeanors, or investigating those same crimes. Not only are damaging the people they say they fight for, but it also makes these groups look overlyparanoid and petty.

Hell, most grill girls are either professional models who already know a lot about their bussiness and know how to defend themselves (phisically and/or legally), or young women that just do this as a half-time job to pay up their bills. This benefits noone.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

They arent forcing them to work there, and in fact they seem to enjoy it... they should be able to work at whatever job they want.

What misdemeanors are we talking about?
