Booth Babes Are People Too: In Defence Of People Doing Their Job

Gamer Euphoria staff member Sean writes:

''There seems to be a strange trend on the rise, especially when conventions and expos are in town, and this trend is slightly worrying given the nature of peoples mind sets. The term ‘Booth babe’ has been thrown around the pillars of the video game community for quite some time now and it can be seen as a little juvenile, but that isn’t the issue I’m talking about at this current moment.'' (Booth Babes, Culture, Industry)

I feel sorry for those girls.
They have to stand around and be gawked at for hours.
They probably don't even get to use the toilet if they need to.
Booth Babes are great to look at and i'd say a lot of them enjoy what they do, but sometimes you see one or two who have that "i wanna go home" face on.
Those poor, sexy things.

They chose to take on the job though. It really shouldn't be a job option at all, it's just a cheap way to draw people to your booth.

I to feel sorry for women who get paid to stand around in skimpy outfits and get all the male attention they want while enjoying great perks.

Meanwhile....

Not sure why you've went completely off topic. I also have no idea why you feel the need to post that.
Zha1tan  +   888d ago
Oh I dont know, perhaps my frustrations are misplaced by the misplaced frustrations of people, you know like how we should feel sorry for those who make money from selling themselves willinging to be used as eye candy?

But it appears I have touched down in mangina central....

LOL "Those poor, sexy things." That's the funniest line I've read all week. You win something... I don't know what yet, but something. The story image is great too. And yes, booth babes are people too... so is the kid working behind the counter at the store, but people still treat him/her like s#!t... at least booth babes are still hot when they clock out.

I never quite got the point (well, I do. They help sell games). Shouldn't video game conferences be ALL about games? Like film festivals are all about movies and not about what people are wearing...

Nevermind

The events are turning into mainstream peep shows now days.I doubt millions of gamers bought Halo 4 and others because seen some booth babe @E3.

Agreed. It;s the same at the V8's (Australia here.....) and the Formula One Grand Prix. I felt sorry for some of them, as there were always the juvenile little kids (you know, the type of little boys who think they have a 'chance'), and then there were the old, smelly drunk guys who went to far.

I am a male, but I think that job all together, whether for a male or female, is degrading and should be illegal. And why do people expect them to know about games (as the article pointed out), as no-one goes up to them and can move their gaze to meet their face and ask them a serious question anyway.

I'm more annoyed that they use good looking guy/girls to do interviews, when they clearly know nothing about games.

Cortana's jiggly boobs says hello.

A Freudian lozenge for all the frustrated man children who wish they were Master Chief, a fictional overman who never has to struggle with rejection and inadequacy.

Beta males play video games. Beta males prefer objectified women over real women, because objects don't ask you when your next promotion is coming up.

Only alpha-male-wannabes use the phrase "Beta males". :)
