"I'm sure they're good at gaming but why do I get the feeling that there might be much better female gamers out there who wouldn't make the cut because they aren't as attractive as these girls?"This makes me really sad. Not only do women have to be better than men, we have to do it while being easy on the eyes. This brings to mind something I heard the other day- that some orchestras conduct their auditions blind, which is to say that they listen to someone's music before they see their face. Because of this, employment of women in orchestras has risen pretty dramatically- because they weren't being judged as poor performers because they were women. I wish that this could go for everything in life- blind tests first based only on ability.Sadly there are a number of jobs that actually require gender and physical appearance.
