People are way too uptight and PC (gay too, apparently). It's almost like the population is trying to neuter itself.

Lol. I thought it was pretty funny. People need to lighten up, and learn to take a joke.

I don't think it's funny or sexist, just stupid.

I don't see how this could be sexist, she's a model, what are models hired for? Their looks. So don't be suprised when people judge them based upon their looks, or point out how attractive they appear to be.

I'd be a both babe if they gave me lots of cool stuff like lots of money and skooma!

I'm a Khajiit and who wouldn't want one as a booth babe?

It is funny, not sexist. It would be sexist if they said she shouldn't using technology like that and instead should be in the kitchen fixing me up a sandwich.

I don't think that would fix in the twitter character limit though.

As others have pointed out, judging by the actual definitions of 'sexism', this isn't sexist. It also isn't misogynistic. There is absolutely nothing wrong with admiring the body of another person. Public consensus on this issue must be changed—more people need to be told that there is nothing wrong or disrespectful about admiring another person or their body. ASUS should not have had to remove that tweet, and they should not have had to consider not posting it.

Oh please. That's just having a sense of humour and admiration for the human form. If the tweet had said something like, "why is she looking at the computer instead of making a sandwich?" then it would be something to complain about.
