She doesn't look hot to me and I'm straight.  So whatever floats your boat I guess.

Not sure how this is continuing to be overlooked time and time again.

My partner would like to know:

 

”why does this need a ‘hot girl’?”

Identifies as a woke male.

Sounds like extremist feminism.

 

Would someone complain about it being a dude if it was clearly a hot dude?

I haven't the references to provide as hyperlinks, but from what I've been told about marketing and advertising-related things.

 

1) Two circles

 

             O  O

 

As humans, show us two circles and we treat them as eyes. Seems to be hardcoded in the species. Eyes grab attention.

 

2) Young women

 

The presence of young women in photos attracts the attention of both genders, and retains the attention for longer, again for both genders, and leads to increased sales.

 

Let's put it another way: the notice would have less attention paid to it if the young lady was removed.

 

Frankly it makes me feel exploited and manipulated. I'm perfectly capable of not reading the instructions, and with the young lady's image present I simply have to work just that little bit harder. But I can read an entire newspaper and not see any advertisements.

I have never noticed this anywhere on SNA before.   Seems like a mountain out of a molehill to me.

 

  Now that I look closer, it looks like @Marc in drag on a Thursday evening 🤔😊

In marketing it applies to both sexes.

 

It's 'Industrial psychology'

 

Same reason good looking symmetrical men and women do better in the work place compared to unattractive asymmetrical men and women.

 

That being said, I never noticed the image before now, I tend to read the notice and little else.

Indeed!

 

The level of research by the marketing industry would possibly leave the military far behind.

 

What they know about us collectively, and individually, is staggering...  they know how we tick, how we think, and how we act.

They prey on human insecurities to move their products...  

 

...  and it's very effective.

@Billy Shears

It appears to me that your "Mrs'' is making a valuation that the person is "hot" and that "It is needed".

And then putting that valuation on to the Admin of this site.

To me it is a female holding a stop sign that is covering most of her face. Fifty percent of the population is female so why should a woman not be holding the sign.

I withdraw this question,  as this thread is pointless.
