r3d c0m3t Posted June 19, 2009 Posted June 19, 2009 Enough With The Booth Babes The first common, and more often than not repetitive response to such a thing would be "Who cares?" or "You're gay if you have a problem looking at women for whatever reason." for one second, and if you can manage for five minutes ask yourself one particular question: What purpose do they serve other than to just stand and essentially be stupid (which most of them are anyway)? I know the last few years when I've gone to the NY Auto Show I'm there to see cars, and possibly some neat wheels and what have you as long as they're not spinners; furthermore I'm there enjoy a specific experience, a focused objective...which is why I spent the money for the trip in the first place. I'll go even further with this, I can't count how many times I'm standing in front of a particular vehicle diorama alongside many other people that are taking just about as many pictures as I am, and here comes this woman usually wearing a miniskirt and a halter-top walking around the car, as if she were trying to "raise" the appeal of the car itself, or as if those who planned and organized the event were sending one of many micro-messages and one of them being "Without a woman, particularly one whom looks like a model a car means nothing, no matter how expensive, fast or good-looking it is." Do you know how many times I've moved my head in the opposite direction of where she was walking and/or standing just to get a picture of what I'm there to see in the first place? Just as Dustin describes I particularly feel a little sorry for them as they're just 'line items on a stick' meaning they're only there for one purpose, and that purpose is to make you walk over to a vehicle you previously had no interest in just to stare at her and ask questions about said vehicle (or anything for that matter) you could really care less about. Now, just as any guy whether he be a straight or a gay one, of course I'm attracted to a pretty face, a smile and other such features, but before any of that is even a priority I'm more attracted to a woman who knows her stuff, and if she's more aligned with the subject than I am that just makes me drool even more, so this really isn't about the women. It's about them being there for reasons they could probably give two sh..s about. That might allow someone to get the wrong message from the latter, I'll refer back to what I opened up with I'm more attracted to a woman who knows her way around a car, a computer, or a video game, science, etc. I'm instantly repelled by those who can only do nothing more than look around with the utmost insincere and faux smiles and when they're presented a question most of them can only smile, give inaccurate information, or just stand there and say "Uh.....". I know someone is thinking to themselves "How do you know one of them doesn't know?" You're right, I don't know to be absolutely certain, but what I do know is those who do are 1 in 5, 10, 30, etc... that I can pretty much guarantee with a smile on my face. I'm sure someone is going to miss the entire point as we're all a bunch of pervs, but really think about it - Would your (and I use that term to reference our type of demographic) experience be any less fantastic if you didn't see a booth babe standing next to XFX's 4870X2, or a booth babe standing next to an LP640?
