Must not associate dancing girls with computers

MICROSOFT’S management has been left red-faced and forced to apologise after the company hired scantily clad dancing school girls for a recent gaming event.

The raunchy entertainers were positioned on podiums around the venue and stood dancing for the crowd in nothing more than a bra and skirt. Far from having the desired effect, a number of attendees and others on social media voiced their anger at the inappropriateness of the entertainment.

The party was held late last week following a conference for video game developers put on by Microsoft’s Xbox division, but following a tsunami of criticism the company said it was “unequivocally wrong” to have hired the dancers.

The gaming industry has been plagued by a longstanding image that it is hostile towards women and this latest incident has done nothing to help that unflattering perception.

It suggests that the organizers were a bunch of Liberals with no sense.

The vast majority of "gamers" have the mindset of adolescent males no matter their actual physical age or gender. Microsoft played to adolescent fantasies with the "go, go, girls" which were probably a hit with a almost all attendees except the perpetually aggrieved. Semi naked women sell products, even to other women and because of that will continue to be a staple of advertising.

Hey, go go dancing schoolgirls need work too! How dare anyone interfere with a woman's right to dress scantily and entertain a bunch of geeks?
