BREAKING NEWS: MISS WORLD SERIES VIDEOGAMES BOYCOT

Recommended Posts

Two all-female gaming clans are protesting against a new beauty contest which they say could damage the way women gamers are perceived.

 

The winner of the Miss World Series Videogames contest http://www.thewsvg.com/misswsvg/ will receive $1000, a contract to appear at all WSCG events, and will be featured in a forthcoming game. The only gaming-related entry requirement is that entrants state what their favourite game is.

 

Both the US Frag Dolls and the PMS clan are boycotting the contest - and have decided to hold their own Mr WSVG competition in protest.

"It's not really a videogamer [who'll be crowned]. It's a model," PMS co-founder Amber Dalton told US newspaper The Courier-Journal.

 

Ubisoft's Morgan Romine, who's in charge of marketing the US Frag Dolls, said it's important to "fight the perception that we're booth babes," adding: "We're gamers first. We felt that this [beauty contest] was threatening that."

 

In a post on the Frag Dolls' website http://www.fragdolls.com/us/blog.php?doll=valkyrie , 'Valkyrie' also defended their position, writing: "What the heck is this crap? How is a Miss WSVG being crowned based on a beauty contest and has nothing to do with gaming?

 

"Why not re-evaluate this contest and do something that would make this event more positive, like have a real contest for girl gamers based on all things: a complete package that includes gaming skill and knowledge."

 

The WSVG aren't too happy with the ladies' antics - or the fact that they're planning to hold another Mr WSVG contest in Dallas to protest against the next Miss WSVG regional final. "If this happens, and in order to be fair, the WSVG may feel compelled to run another Miss WSVG competition as well," the company said in a statement.

 

I am APPALLED by this contest. Fortunately, there are true virtuous paladins in this industry to fight the misconception that gamer girls are not gamers but booth babes. FOR. GREAT. JUSTICE.

 

I am boycotting the contest as well.

Boycotss are for wussies. Besides, any group with the name 'PMS' deserves to be laughed at, and not taken seriously.

 

I wholeheartedly support this beauty contest on the basis that I am a male who always supports having the ability to look at beautiful women.

 

btw, These whiners cyining about sexism are planning on running a Mr. Video Game contest. It looks stupid when you complain about soemthing then go out, and do it.

 

It's like me doing the following:

 

I say, I hate murderers." then I go out and murder someone.

 

LAME! :huh:

I've always disliked the whole I'm a girl and a gamer -- "I'm soo special" stance that many of the girl only clans have taken.

 

Gaming shouldn't be about gender, it should be about the frags.

You know, this makes me think of Kingdom Hearts and Jade Empire, where during an uber intense battle the characters will say something like, "This will be your downfall!!!" about ten times. What's even funnier is that boss characters in those games will say something before their super attack to tip the player off that it's coming. You would think that Sephiroth of all people would know not to say, "Sin Harvest!" after about the fifth time when the hero dodges it. :D

Dude, really, this is about the objectification of gaming girls. If that isn't a serious issue I don't know what is. I mean, if they aren't properly objectified how will I get my gaming girl fetish porn and pinup posters?

I think that the person who wins gets the most votes BUT must also be one of the top five in tournement of an FPS of some kind.

So the judge gets a choice between five sweaty gamer guys? Those are the people who win FPS tournaments.

 

In other news "Ha ha."

I think anyone who is part of a 'one gender only' group should be disallowed from whining about sexism; because they have proven themselves to be sexists... unless someone is gonna telling me that 'PMS' allows males into their group. If so.... then sorry for the assumption. <>

I totally agree, but I do think that you should run for Miss Gamer just to make your point. Don
