But on a more serious note, the fact that a high-profile tech commentator is even bringing the subject up is pause for reflection.
Despite the earnest efforts of many, it would seem that the cavemen training of males is not yet eradicated — we males continue to seek out (if only, sadly, in our dreams) a genetically ‘fit’ mate [that is, genetically fit for breeding].
The Divine Miss M has been focussed recently on the topic of ‘sex’ and whether it ‘sells’ appropriately or not. Even she, no ‘booth babe’ her, agrees that in the right context females are more likely to ‘pull’ audiences (if you pardon the pun) than males.
In Australia we have recently come out of the ‘Cleavage Wars’, wherein more and more (fake) cleavage was exposed by female news talking-heads in a vain attempt to win prime time rating wars on tv. It seems that common sense may have prevailed through the stunning intellectual breakthrough by some overpaid network genius, somewhere, who recognised that rake-thin women don’t have cleavages.
But the symptom remains: attractive women are becoming more and more prevalent in all visual media spaces (whether scantily clad as in video games or not) and no one is complaining in the slightest raised voice. Neither am I.
