You make a valid point, good Sir or Madam.

She better only be in charge of making the tea, because if shes allowed to touch my beloved eve at all i will be so crushed and disappointed in ccp.

No, but at least that chic is actually cute. I have never understood the way some guys just go crazy bc a girl plays a video game. I mean, if I am going to get excited about a girl who plays games she better look like this.

Sadly though this is what you get with most of those "girls" you think you are talking to.

Who is this & what makes you think she would give CCP a bad image? They hired Michael Bolton III after he got thrown out of the 2012 charity dinner.

Congratulations Mintchip.

Anyone that expresses personal opinion on a video game is going to take heat for it, especially if they are an attractive girl.

I've seen far less insightful observations made by so called "major players", so I really don't have a problem with this... particularly since we have no idea what her responsibilites are going to be.

So? CCP can hire or fire whoever they want.

Make it idiot-proof and someone will make a better idiot.

Being shallow is not the same thing as being misogynistic. I, too, have standards as to how my women should look, but I like my women a bit big. And before you spout nonsense about how I'll never find anyone, too high standards, blabla... I'm still with her :) so there is nothing wrong with having standards as well as thresholds of attraction. I actually categorize people on "mateable" and then "dateable". One must first be mateable to be dateable, and I've been very happy so far as mentioned.

Either ways, I do not support Mintchip working at CCP. It is the equivalent of letting PewDiePie work at CCP, so this is not just a *girl* thing.

What did she get hired for? I don't understand what a Youtube reviewer adds to the company besides a face for the cameras.

I don't like her videos, I find people who play on thier gender unseemly.

But mad props if she got a job with CCP. Well done to her and all that.

Gamer culture is incredibly misogynistic. Much of this thread is neckbeards going, "Oh god! A girl! At CCP! She's going to paint everything pink and put ponies on stuff, right? FIRE HER NOW. SHE CAN'T BE ALLOWED TO HAVE OPINIONS."

We have no idea what her professional experience is, or what she's hired for. She's likely very qualified for whatever position CCP hired her for.

So. Again. Whatever.

You are right, being shallow isnt the same thing.




This is how you can be both at once

I for one welcome Mintchip to the eve family, and wish her good luck.

All hail CCP BuyMeStuffOnAmazon.

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

So when I say "my girl" it's misogynistic but when my girl says "my man" she's alright? I don't say it as if they are my property, it's a short way of saying "my possible love interests who are female...". But if you want to ignore context and strawman then alright I guess.

Also you have no idea how I treat my girl or anything else really, she is a bit submissive but I make sure we are 50/50 when it comes to opinions, decisions, and so on. If that is being misogynistic then so be it, we are both happy and it seems like the only person not happy with the current state of things is you.
