    I posted this comment on the thread started by Garey on Basschat.


    I am pleasantly surprised to see that several other Basschatters agree with my view. If the winner of this contest is actually going to be decided by choosing among male bassists acting cool or funny - but fully clothed - and female bassists sitting there showing parts of their body, then I don't want to be in it, despite my own body parts still thankfully being up to appearing in photos.

    The Basschat thread can be followed here:

    Hi Silvia,

    Woow, I never thought this picture will be considered offensive... I posted it On Facebook, not Garey. It was one of the pictures submitted to the contest, and it actually didn't had any chance to win :)

    I wanted to announce the contest on Facebook, and I had to chose a picture, and I thought this was funny...
    The winners are usually chosen by Hans Peter Wilfer, Florence Wilfer, and maybe two more, and showing legs in the picture never increased the chances of winning. I think J Grim of portugal won two times, because he had nice photographic skills.

    I've noticed some of the comments on the Facebook, and I didn't liked them at all, in fact I answered there...
    Comments like that are instantly deleted on the forum, and the used banned...


    So Silvia, please accept my apologies, and please do join the contest, because it is not at all about naked legs.
    Your forum friend,
    Flo

    I agree with you, BlueJay, we should keep this contest as a fun and enjoyable thing for EVERYONE. I remember, when I saw this pic for the very first time, thinking that it was kinda sexist. I think we should defend and encourage values of equality and respect for everyone.

    Sex sells, we all know this, now let´s try something diferent, fun and smart.

    Thanks Florin for your reply, and Nacho too.
    Sexism cuts both ways - it can be said that, from certain points of view, guys would be at a disadvantage, because it's assumed that the general reaction if one of you decided to pose wearing his boxer shorts and a bass only would be very different from the reaction to the photo of that girl.

    Yes, Florin, on behalf of all, or at least many of us female bass players who go to class fully clothed, and practise, and choose not to sleep with our teachers to pass exams, I find that photo patronising and offensive - not for the amount of flesh on show but because you wouldn't have thought of posting a half-naked photo of a man pretending to play bass.

    Having said that, I may enter the comp if I can think of a nice shot to take of me with one of my beloved Corvettes.

    Thank you all for being part of this debate.

    You are right!
    I deleted my post on Facebook
    I will change the photo here
    And I will ask the design team to change the official Banner.
    Thank you very much for your feedback Silvia, you helped me to see it was wrong.

    Please accept my apologies!

    If there is something we could say about Flo, it´s that he is always listening. No doubt about it.

    Cheers.

    I never saw anything wrong with it, although I can see why people would complain if they didn't know the end results last year.

    I tried looking through last years photo's and most of them are now missing, bummer. Me and my 5 year old are working out one right now, its hard trying to get a little kid to take a picture framed the way you see it but have no control over haha.
