EA Sexist Stupidity Makes Major News Outlet!

SOURCE: EA blasted over questionable marketing stunt

I didn't feel the need to comment on the greatest bit of sexist geeky stupidity since The Open-Source Boob Project, since I just heard about this this afternoon and numerous people linked off When Fangirls Attack! had already said everything I wanted to say about the original article.

I still don't. Sexist, geeky stupidity pretty much says it all, I think. Still, I think it is noteworthy that as of 12:20 AM CST, this is a major headlining story on Yahoo's front page.

Way to keep it classy, EA!


  1. Oh no. Didn't you get it? It's all a trick.
    What they're REALLY trying to do is invoke WRATH. They just figured they'd take a roundabout way of doing it. Sloth was too easy, and they're gonna have to wait for their power-up line of pastry cakes before they can work on Gluttony.

  2. I don't buy it. If that was the goal, they could have gotten Gluttony by giving out free snacky cakes at ComicCon... and then gotten Envy once they ran out. :)

  3. Well, Snacky cakes for a Comic Con crowd could be expensive, so, uh, they were channelling Greed for themselves? :)

  4. To put it mildly and politely.
    Did you get the Nurse Canary icon I made you?

  5. Hmmm. Good point. On the other hand, such an action could wind up creating an atompshere where you could get diabetes just from breathing the air...

  6. I gotta agree with Coyote on this one, for I'm already feeling the urge to SMASH STUPID EA TWITS... way to objectify women and encourage bad behaviour you asshats.

  7. I agree.
    The only problem now is that the Southern gentleman in me wants to stand aside and say "ladies first", thinking they have more right to lay their vengeance upon these miscreants, but the feminist in me is afraid that attitude might be sexist.
    Also, I'm worried that the EA guys might get some kinda sick thrill in getting ripped apart by angry fangirls, as such an action might constitute the first and only time a woman willingly touched them for any reason.
    Truly, a perplexing dilemma.

  8. *facepalm*
    Geeks don't get it. And run with that double entendre in 3..2..1..
