Yay! Molly's back!

What's not to love about Molly? She's smart, funny as hell, runs her own businesses, is great with her hands(fixing pins you monkeys!), and, if I may be permitted the temporary objectification, has got pretty eyes, an awesome smile, and some killer legs!

You're all win in my book Molly! I promise to stop and say hi this year at PAGG if you go again!(That is unless you want to now take out a restraining order against me. Understandable. )

Quoted from vid1900:

I attend many of the biggest pinball shows. I can count the number of women who are there alone (not babysitting their husbands), on one hand.

I feel this is changing, rather quickly. The level of diversity at pinball events isn't ideal, but it's way more balanced now than it was 5 or 10 years ago. My best guess is that about 100 women will be competing at Pinburgh 2015 (http://replayfx.org/competitions/pinburgh). None of those women will be there to babysit anyone.

Is it really true that the prevailing attitude among Pinsiders is that of vid1900's: "Good, don't get them involved"?

I know that I can "drain" a topic, but that doesn't change its visibility to others. In my opinion, topics with "adult" content should not be visible as part of the main forum.

When topics that frequently includes nudity and misogyny are repeatedly visible on the top page, it gives the public impression that nudity and misogyny is tolerated or encouraged. I know several people who have left Pinside completely because of this.

In its current state, I can't recommend Pinside to anyone due to adult content. Topics with adult content, including this one, should be in a sub-forum that is not visible to the general site visitor.

Thanks for listening to my opinion.

#404 5 years ago

Some don't consider Pinburgh a pinball show. It is basically a tournament so the participant mix is different.

thank you for sharing, and great idea about creating a subforum on pinside. klov has a similar setup, and aside from the trolls and massive negativity and constant off topic conflict that happens on klov, it's great.

maybe your new feature idea is something you could propose in the pinside website feature request category.

In addition, I (and I'm sure many others) believe you bring up many valuable points to improve our community. Would you consider creating a new thread about your interests so we can discuss it there so that new and valuable thread can be On Topic, and then this one can too? After all, the more people (including you and me) post on this particular thread, the more it rises to the top of the forum home page, right?

Thanks much for making the pinball community and Pinside better for everyone.

The problem would be the innumerable legit threads that will have the random t&a posts. It would be very difficult for moderators to police this themselves I think. It would probably require self-policing with punitive consequences to keep "public Pinside" clean.

It would be interesting if there were a way know how many potential Pinside users have been "run-off" as a result of the pockets of general adult and sexist content of Pinside. There is certainly merit to the discussion.

Quoted from bkerins:

that nudity and misogyny is tolerated or encouraged. .

dictionary definition...Misogyny (/mɪˈsɒdʒɪni/) is the hatred or dislike of women or girls....

I see no hatred or dislike...actually quite the opposite
.
nudity? yes I am all for it
.
so I guess the answer is yes, nudity should be tolerated and encouraged

#410 5 years ago

Or we could act like adults and just keep it to pinball? Just a thought.

I once made a thread asking fellow Pinsiders to keep it "work safe" without all the t&a picture postings, and was shut down by the grumpy old guard quickly. Hey, I love beautiful women, and well aware of the sometimes risque images on pinball machines, but c'mon. I no longer visit pinside at work due to the surprise content. I come here for pinball talk, as there's plenty of other sites to see female nudity.

I remember one thread where a woman was posing in front of a pinball machine, and there was a ton of "sharp knees, I wouldn't hit it" type comments on her appearance before it got locked down. Imagine the shitstorm if another day it's a commentary on a pinsider's wife, or woman pinsider. If I knew of any woman who was getting into pinball, I would suggest they steer clear of the forums here, or at least go incognito.

The idea of self-tilting your posts for such content, while noble, fails completely. Nobody does it.

If you can't spend time on pinside at work, it may be time to look for a new job.

#418 5 years ago
Quoted from swampfire:

After todays' tournament, I'm convinced that the most beautiful (and wonderful) women in pinball are married to some very lucky guys. You know who you are, GA pinheads.

Heck yeah! Good shout out to all the wife's who put up with our pinaddictions! That is hot!

#419 5 years ago
Quoted from vid1900:

I attend many of the biggest pinball shows. I can count the number of women who are there alone (not babysitting their husbands), on one hand.

You obviously haven't been to a west coast show lately. Besides attending and participating at shows in big numbers, the women here are also joining leagues and playing in tournaments. The last two tournaments I competed in were about 25% women each. See for yourself...

http://www.ifpapinball.com/view_tournament.php?t=1778&e=&d=2014-12-06#results

http://www.ifpapinball.com/view_tournament.php?t=1193&e=&d=2014-11-02#results

Note the top 10 finishes. One woman tied for second place (tie-breaker put her in third). Both of the tournament organizers were women too. Leagues and shows regularly get a much higher percentage of participating women. Echa and the league she started (Belle's and Chimes) deserve some of the credit, but I also give all the other ladies credit for understanding that it really can be a fun hobby. Very few babysitting wives or girlfiends out here. And it's not just the bay area. League and tournament results up and down the coast are showing this.

Quoted from vid1900:

Good, don't get them involved. And I mean that sincerely.
The more people that join the hobby, the higher prices will continue to go.
The days of picking up a beater Flash for $250 are now long gone because too many people want in on the action.

Wow. If you really think prices are still rising, I'd suggest you stop by Boston pinball and look at the graphs at the top of the page. Used pin prices have been dropping for over a year now and and don't show any signs of going up. Suggesting keeping women out of the hobby to keep prices from going up is ridiculous.

Vid I have a Big Juicy amount of respect for you, but this "willful ignorance" thing...it's not a good look for you. You're smart, you know that women are treated like a joke here bar none. And there are very few references on Pinside to women as ANYTHING other than something to 1) laugh at or 2) jerk off to. It's a very unfortunate representation of the female presence in pinball at this time. Would it kill some of you guys to just show some respect? We are half of the human population. You're one of the last people I'd ever want to fight with but c'mon man. No misogyny here?

#422 5 years ago
Quoted from phishrace:

The last two tournaments I competed in were about 25% women each. See for yourself...

I see women in tournaments, but 99.99999% of the time they are married to some guy also attending the show.

I can count how many unaccompanied women are in most tournaments on one hand.

I service zillions of pinball machines, yet I've never been called to a woman's home to service HER machines. Never, not once; and I've been doing service since the 1970s.

Is there an unmarried woman who owns 50 machines? How about 25?

How many single women have a dedicated home theater (you know, the kind with the real theater seats)?

Would you say that women don't build dedicated home theaters because topical magazines and websites use sexy images to sell projectors???

#423 5 years ago

I'm not married and I have between 70-80 machines. I've also done several service calls to fix pins and/or vids for women. No home theater; I don't make it home all that much.

Average used prices have been dropping on Ebay and mostly the A-List games, such as AFM. But you see TZ going up in the same graph. That's from the source you mentioned. Fees on Ebay, and sellers posting too high wishlist asking prices are tweaking the graph down on that venue. I'd say most of the older titles are likely staying a bit flat

I love women more than anybody (anyone here that knows me, will vouch that I'm a "hold open doors", "push chairs in" chivalrous kind of guy). Old fashioned, I know; but again, I'm old.

Misogyny is defined as a hatred towards women, and that's sure not me. Nor do I think that word properly describes 99% of the rest of Pinside's population.

I'm of the Laissez-Faire School of thought:

Women will gain status naturally. We don't have to force the issue, it will happen when it happens.

If women start joining tournaments without being "escorted" to the tournaments, they will naturally be seen as competitors.

If women start winning "men's" tournaments, they will naturally be seen as competitors.

-

Plenty of other "boy's clubs" have fallen by skill rather than by gunpoint:

"Black people don't play professional golf" - Tiger Woods not only competes, he rips the old white men some new aholes.

"Women don't have the reaction time to auto race professionally" - Danica Patrick beats the 'ol boys and wins the Japan 300.

Siming Chen is better than probably any man at billiards....Billie Jean King slamming Bobby Riggs at tennis....I'm sure everyone has a few favorites of their own.

No need to moderate some kind of false respect, I'd way rather see women start earning respect by creaming some guys in the next tournament!

mi·sog·y·ny
məˈsäjənē/
noun
dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women.
"she felt she was struggling against thinly disguised misogyny"

From my friend Google.

An environment is created here where women are not comfortable or safe, and the persistent and really, almost obsessive adherence to the sexist imagery indeed breeds an environment of contempt. Loving nude or nearly-nude images of women does not equal loving women, I don't care how many times you've put your coat down so a lady can cross a puddle; you know as well as I do that most women just aren't going to want to put up with this stupid tit pic wasteland. Yes! You'll find "cool" women that don't mind it. Or enjoy it. But women in general? We deserve to be treated better than we are here, only a piece of garbage person would think otherwise.

Honestly the overall treatment of women on this site is pathetic. I hope to see a change in that; maybe the tide will start to turn. Vid really, I think you're an incredibly talented guy; I'm not mad at you, I'm just mad. Please don't take this as a personal affront.

If the title of a thread is "Hottest women backglass", "sexiest playfield art", "biggest breasts in pinball", 99.9999% of people pretty much know what's inside that thread.

If you don't want to see a bunch of 50 year old guys acting like they never saw an illustrated woman in a bikini before - don't open that thread.

Set your TILT settings to not show you any NSFW threads at all! Easy to do for sensitive men/women and of course on your children's accounts.

-

If a book title is "Bound Boys for Pleasure" you pretty much know what is going to be inside. If you don't want to see that kind of thing - don't open the book.

Don't stop shopping at Borders because a book is supposedly degrading to young men.

Don't have a protest outside the Borders Book Store because a book does not agree with your prudish upbringing.

Just don't open the book.

#440 5 years ago

The fact of the matter is NEO, that pinball culture picked back up, and it's evolving. History is one thing, the future is another. When a hobby blows up, it changes.

Women are playing in droves now. If they aren't doing so where you are, they will be soon; everyone wants to hang out at the hip new barcade, not just gray haired male pinny crusters. More and more women will be at the shows, leagues, tourneys. Yes, pinball did get a rep back when: seedy diddler guys hanging out too close to children in arcades. Pinball all but died out, we were there. But what luck! Pinball has another shot! So why are so many of you so dead set on keeping everything "pervy" like in the past? That's what did us in last time, interest sputtered out. Now we have a chance to try again and ya just want to make all the same mistakes.

Just try treating women like equals once or twice today, instead of reducing us to boobie imagery and stereotypes about shopping. You don't have to become a new man or anything, just....next time you feel the urge to post something demoralizing to a woman, think for a second "hey maybe I'm being a crusty old creep here, I might instead go outside and walk around for a few minutes instead". Being good to women should not be a difficult challenge, lots of guys do it. Perpetuating the Boys Club thing is just so tired. "MAAAAN CAAAAAAVE"....zzzzzzzzzz

How about some cool stories about women doing cool pin stuff? Sarah with her hundred game lineup in NH, Echa with her wildly successful and revolutionary Belles and Chimes? Margaret Hudson interview! "Women in pinball" simply does not mean sexed up art and booth babes anymore, come out of your cave FFS! Y'all should be GLAD to have women around and instead you choose to ignore it and post titty thrill junk all day. Cut the perv stuff even by a fraction, and it'll serve you well.

The history of something only dictates the future of that thing if the same mistakes are repeated. Otherwise the future is something new. It will not physically harm any of you to take note of this and start doing a better job of trying to encourage healthy growth in pinball, just like it wouldn't hurt you to self-tilt or save the sexist imagery for a sub forum. Make a choice: either keep at things the way you're used to or effect positive change where you have an opportunity to do so. Pinball IS NOT where it was back when, but if everyone continues to try to discourage women from participating , it'll be 2003 again before ya know it. Rollercoaster Tycoon days. IMO Pinside could be at the forefront of the pinball resurgence and instead it's a hub where everything bad about the hobby from a decade ago just kinda festers.

And with that, let the thumbs downing commence!

#441 5 years ago

Ok, enough bickering and text posts... where are the pics? I'm not in this thread to read a book.

Anyone looking for equality, please start a Hottest Guys in pinball thread, I don't mind!

#442 5 years ago

showing the opposite sex in a sexy way has nothing to do with equality. If the pin girls on here threw up pictures of a bunch of beefcakes they agree gets their engines going. It, in no way, make men feel less equal.

It's more like a beautiful painting to be admired for it's grace and elegance. Visual orgy of stimuli.

Two wrongs don't make a right. No women want to make the site into a sausage fest so it's "equal". You're really being creepy gramps right now. I still love ya of course, but I'm talking about encouraging equality for real, not by putting more nudie male images on here.

How is this a tilt warning? Kids seeing this, they would pay no attention. nor would they give it a second thought. If you understand the joke, you are old enough to look at it. I think this falls in the catagory of ...sticks up peoples butts. But for me, I get to see it. Makes me laugh and gives me warm fuzzies to make my day just a little brighter.
