Ian: They are not gonna release the album...because they have decided that the cover is sexist.
Nigel: Well so what? What's wrong with being sexy? I mean there's no....
Ian: Sex-ist.
David: -ist, not sexy.

[ ... ]

David: But you're not as confused as him are you? I mean it's not your job to be as confused as Nigel is.

Hair is so 70's.

I shave mine before every photo shoot.

Chics dig hairless, bro. Take it from the Epeen. He knows his way around the girlies Wink

Mr Clean agrees with Mr Epeen.
(Except about that 70's crack ... Mr Clean was bald before bald was cool.)

I'm trying, but I just can't seem to get as worked up over an advertisement in a game I play. (Or not with these friggin server crashes.)

I didn't look at this properly since its a dumb advert to look at while typing in my password but I realise my first impression was that the legs and boots were in fact a dude in shorts in the background, providing a semblance of 'equality' to the advert. Now I see it is simply a crass sexist piece of crap and CCP are disgusting.


Wow, I'm quite impressed. It's nice to see you extolling the adult perspective and providing some balance of maturity to this matter.

Thank you Lady Spank.

Would you rather that promo be some dude character wearing Speedo trunks around 6:30 AM? Thanks for the screenshot. I think that the NeX store will be successful, once it sports a much wider selection of goods. I totally went ahead and made this hottie character for that reason alone. Once WiS arrives.... I'm sure you will jump in that bandwagon as well, assuming your sub hasn't run out.

Good entertainment is good.

-Lay ya later. (See what I did there?)



Men and Women are both beautiful in their own ways. I think the problem here though isn't that fact that it's a woman's arse rather than a man's arse. The problem is to do with the objectification of women (or men, but that's rarely the case) people are more than just a body, and that part if far more sexy. Why not show the whole woman doing something purposeful, she could be beautiful in her new NeX outfit and be managing the fitting of her ship or whatever else one does in CQ


As far as I've seen, both men and women;(boys and girls);(children) who post on these forums are far from beautiful on the inside. Therefore, I think it's fair to use outer beauty to keep us interested, as there is no end in the downward spiral that technology evolved us monsters into.

When did it become mature and adult to be offended by a woman in a skirt?

Hit that, definately would I.

On more serious note, Id have to agree that nex advert was in pretty poor taste. A pic of someone with a monocle AND goggles popping some ******* with a handcannon would have made me much more inclined to buy the ****e NEX stuff. More inclined. Ill buy it shortly after Im elected as the first atheist pope but still, its pretty desperate.

CCP? Andrea Dworkin's ghost is on the phone, she wants a word or two....

Dear CCP, if you really want me to consider nex please release cybernetic bodies, I want a synthetic ass I don't want to be a damn human, we're post-humans, so why do we cling to this pathetic flesh. I don't believe in the future anyone will care about ass, we will be immortal perfect beings.


Sansha Kuvakei wants you! Stain is --> way.

edit: What percentage of eve account holders are male? 95%? The ad is directed towards the majority of CCP's subscriber base. It's called targeted advertising. I feel sorry for anyone that finds attractive women offensive.

If CCP wants to make their next ad one of a male toon in tight pants, I'm fine with that. I'll just laugh and say "Rock on."

That's me, by the way. Don't know why they Photoshopped my hair color.

Whatever. As long as I got my ISK at the end of the day.

And no, I don't feel exploited. The fact that I know a lot of you are fapping over my photo it is mildly disturbing, though.

LOL lets see maybe 2 inches of leg showing, a dress that could be worn in any corporate environment.
The Boots which serve to cover the legs are actually not except able instead women wear what effectively is a slipper.
The cut of the clothes is accurate.
I am bit confused on what you find offensive ?



The impression that women are sex objects and must dress to impress males and are not accepted as equals on their own merit that is projected through the media in general.

Feel free not to care but don't go crying troll every time someone makes an objection to something.


Last time I checked, both females and males had to dress appropriately to be taken seriously in any walk of life. What is classed as appropriate however is entirely dependent on the particular walk of life :)

uhm it's not the woman in the skirt. it's the image of the ass and sexy boot. you dont see more of the woman (like a face?). as if all women had to offer was **** and ass. thenn add the title 'dress to impress', like in women should dress pretty and sexy to impress their male bosses, because there is no intelectual possibility how this could ever happen.

i hope you are just trolling, but if you dont see that is sexist then you are an unsensitive, uneducated macho for sure

Who the **** cares?

Let em stick up a pic that has a dude with a bulging package next to equal things out. When did the eve community become the most sensitive whiny *****y community in the MMO market?

Grow a pair because that picture on the "Offense O Meter" is at a 2/10

The OPoster is probably muslim, their extensive male bonding and religious believes makes them act irrational when they see females not covered up.

There is no sexism in this advert, it's about clothes ffs.

Now if it came with a 'get your scantily-clad ass back in the kitchen, *****' message, things would be different.
