After Logitech sponsored California's Women's Conference: http://www.californiawomensconference.com/sponsor/logitech/apparently decided to promote feminine values by encouraging woman gamers to "own" their male rivals. Unfortunately the promo team of Logitech decided to put this idea into the newest version of their Setpoint for EVERYONE... which is sort of bad, since the majority of the gamers were male. The story does not end here though, Mexican-American Juan F. Igual filed a complaint to US Institute for Gender Equality - so Logitech needs to remove the picture from the installer until 1st of October 2014, if there will be other penalties to Logitech remains to be seen.


\EDIT: Since this is connected to gaming, is this in the good category or move it to Satellite lounge (but that's "not related for games")?

Woah nelly, what's this weird reddish color I'm looking at? It's somewhere between red and white and it makes me uncontrollably angry for no reason. I think I need to file some complaints immediately.

I saw that and I really thought this was a joke image unrelated to the article made to compliment it or something. It took me a while to realize it was actually the real picture that caused whatever the hell happened. Oh also feminism or whatever okay sure.

Why do they have to be so discrimintaory against men? Letting women have a monopoly over a great color like pink is just unfair.

Yup the most of you guessed it's fake. "Bad Photoshopping" however was a complaint, all I did was Paint. It was too late to correct the white halo, it was a lazy move. Anyway who believed me should check 2x before believing me or anything they read regarding to games. It was not a SPAM thread, but falls under the gaming section as a test and topic of discussion if we are careful enough to check our gaming info. Thank you all who posted :)

Well this was a massive waste of time. I'm locking the thread now.
