More about the hoo ha. How come men's bodies are like considered automatically clean and how come men like their bodies hairy? Also, someone points out that feminism is about equality not choice. Thank goodness somebody finally figured out feminism 101.

Oh yea, and us female gamers need to be beautiful thanks to Pandagon commentor shelly:

Yeah, I have to echo PonyGirl. I’ve been a lifelong gamer (beginning with the D&D boardgame in 3rd grade), and it’s an amazing release to use your computer to kill stuff in various ways. There’s a great online community so that one is not isolated, and there’s the spurts of blood when I’m using my World of Warcraft (or, previously Everquest, Star Wars Galaxies, Eve, and Earth and Beyond) character to slice and dice. That’s not to say I haven’t been sucked in by the various card & PC games that aren’t necessarily multiplayer. Civ Rawks. (And you can play with others if you choose.)
When girls game, we don’t think about anything but the GAME. We don’t need for G4 or anyone else to pound us with images of stereotypical bimbos just because they don’t realize their market includes beautiful YET ALSO highly inventive and intelligent women versus testosterone-laden frat boys (who SUCK at gaming, by the way.)
Screw G4 and the anti-women-as-people sentiment. I’ll keep on doing what I’ve always done, which is to game with a style that a man could never achieve, and I won’t support anyone who isn’t smart enough to cater to me as well as the unwashed, gaming, mountain-dew drinking, male demographic G4 seems to prefer.

Because girl gamers- we're all hot! No, we're not. We're all women, and many of us don't live up to beauty standards. Also, many female gamers are kids as well. Seriously, what does beauty have to do with the price of tea in China?
