File this under waah!

There is a contest that is being held for female gamers and it is getting many of them all fired up. The WSVG (World Series of Video Games) has announced their quest to crown the first ever Miss World Series of Videogames. Will the contestants go head-to-head in a death match on Quake 4 or will the hopefuls go for the most frags in a 10-minute round? Not even close. If you want to enter and qualify, all that is needed is your name, address and the blazing answers to these heavily game related questions:
• Favorite Food
• Favorite Video Game
• Likes
• Dislikes
• Favorite Artist
• Favorite Movie
• Three photos of yourself

Female gamers are up in arms over the barely hidden agenda of the purpose of this event—a beauty contest. One of the most well known female gaming clans, The Frag Dolls, expressed their displeasure on their website by saying:

“$%##@!#! Is all I have to say, what the heck is this crap? How is a Miss WSVG being crowned based on a beauty contest and has nothing to do with gaming? WOW guys, you let me down on this one severely, and I know I am not going to be the only female gamer to think this…this contest has the title of a PROFESSIONAL GAMING CIRCUIT attached to it, and they don’t think that associates it with female gaming? Why not re-evaluate this contest and do something that would make this event more positive, like have a real contest for girl gamers based on all things: a complete package that includes gaming skill and knowledge."

That's funny.. .The frag dolls, not that good. But Cute. Who the fuck are they kidding? They have a big UbiSoft contract so now they think they have some right to run their mouth? I'm not saying they're wrong, but I think this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Idiots. My favorite part? "what the heck is all this crap?" Hey, frag doll, say it like you mean it....
