Quoted from Aurich:
But when threads turn into random pics of bouncing boob gifs it's a turn off. It feels disrespectful. Not only to the women reading the thread, but to the people trying to post their thoughts. It comes off as "blah blah, shut up, here, have some tits you babies".
I totally agree with this statement. I love boobs but they have no place in a pinball thread (unless associated with a machine) except to convey the above as Aurich stated.
My main concern is that we don't do anything to make women feel unwelcome since I truly appreciate their presence at tournaments and leagues. My wife plays and I want to see the continued increase in female participation.
I will say that the vibrator gif on the "Machines women like" thread was funny and kind of on topic for a thread which genuinely was listing machines women like. The silly thing about that thread is the thought that women like different pinball machines then men do.
As Coasterguy has said, let's just keep it classy.
