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 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.

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?

I've seen a fair bit of talk about the grid girls lately. I honestly couldn't care less. They add absolutely nothing to the sport and are just a waste of money. In fact if it means lower ticket prices, since they've now got less people to pay, then I'm all for it! It probably just means less expenditure, and thus more profit, for the organisers though. Would be nice if somebody sometime passed savings on to us consumers.

As for the poll, I choose indifferent. Banning them from employing people in what is a perfectly legal job seems stupid. But I don't want them either, for financial reasons.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Every now and then, these groups attack these kinds of jobs, saying that they treat women with little dignity, as just objects for sex-appeal. And even when most of these kind of jobs, from grill girls to models, have very clear laws and rules defending them from things that may hurt their dignity (from having to wear clothing too revealing to being touched by the crowd) they still complain about them.

So moronic. Not very feminist of them to impose their strict views onto girls who work there on their own free will. I thought feminism is about letting girls make their own choice?
