    This pretty much sums up how I feel about it. It's utterly ridiculous and seems like another way to try and shove affirmative action down everyone's throats. It does nothing to actually benefit the fight against sexism.

    Fuck whoever's the most qualified to speak or work on [insert event or job here]! I demand that you please everybody who might even be as slightly offended as me because they feel their gender or race wasn't represented adequately, regardless of them actually being able to do said job.

    Grow up. Seriously.

    Probably because the majority of the people who actually I dont know work in the gaming industry are ... male?

    Yeah there are women in the games industry already which is great but the majority of more experienced people in their specific areas are men because it has been that kind of industry since its inception.

    To my experience, there are two types of people who bitch & complain about sexism:

    1) Those wih FAR too much time on their hands
    2) Unattractive women

    Gosh. I'm sorry. Was that ....'sexist' of me to say???? .............. LOL

    Just realised this is from Kotaku. False alarm! There should be rules against posting amateur blogs on websites.

    This isjust someone trying to make a fuss about nothing. This idiotic comment ignoresthe fact that only a very small percentage of gamers are female. Especially asthey get older. Completely ignore that the director of Uncharted (Sony’s exclusive)is a woman! And the only white people on stage comment; must have quit watchingbefore the Japanese designers came on stage. Don't blame a lack of female presenceon intent when the more likely culprit is statistical probability!

    And Sony totally had control over who all those third party developers decide to have represent them.

    So Sony basically had the people who they thought would do the best job up there... and they happened to be all white guys. I seriously doubt that there were overt racist or sexist intentions there. But let's be honest for a minute here - if you were to do a demographic study of the gaming community as a whole, what would the vast majority of them be? I'm guessing white males ages 25-40. Would people rather they went the VGA route and had gold painted women in bikinis up there?

    That being said, I am seeing plenty of blatant sexism in this thread, and I think we can all do without that...

    Really? Really?! Honestly, i'm so over people trying to make an issue with sexism. We've been given just as many rights as the next guy, just because those women suck at gaming doesn't give them the right to try and bash it for whatever reason they can find lol
