Let me first state that i am not only a guy but heterosexual as well.
And I swear i never want to see another woman presenting anything of geek interest ever again because men ruined it for them. I didn't think GS would ever sink this low but there it is. Are most comments here talking about the news? (as they would be if a man had presented it) Of course not. Theyr'e talking about how allegedly "cute" this girl is or how they watched this video only to look at her and i knew they would before i even scrolled down.
I don't know her qualifications, it's possible that she actually enjoys and has always played video games and is very qualified, but this is irrelevant, because she is CLEARLY presenting these news based on her look and appeal to the average geek gamer. And the crowd of drooling geek idiots are falling for it and want more.
Let's be clear here, this is no different than putting a voluptuous tight leather clad blonde girl on a Harley. No, she is not dressed in revealing clothes striking suggestive poses. Because she is catering to the geek crowd. Where the blonde on a Harley only has to look sexually suggestive and available, all the "geek" presenter has to do is smile and look "cute" and talk about video games. In my view though, it is as sexist and disgusting.
While it's clearly obvious "Jess" knows her role here and is willfully playing it, which is objectionable, this isn't women's fault that things are this way. Men don't give a s about a woman's qualifications, all they care about is if she's nice to look at. Qualified or not, a woman in ANY line of work WILL be used depending on her sex appeal (or lack thereof) and it's only because of men's attitude and constant need to only relate to women in a sexual way that it has become impossible for a woman to be respected for her qualifications and opinions. So what is there to do? Well i don't know but personally, i give up. I don't want to ever see another woman telling me about video games ever again. Not because I don't want them there, but because men have proven they can't be there unless they are somehow deemed attractive. Women have lost here, it doesn't matter what they have to say.
Oh yeah and....F you gamespot. Seriously, F you.
