It's a funny old world where saying something sincerely nice about somebody gets you in bother.

You're missing the point. Probably quite unintentionally, but you are missing the point.

Sincere compliments, how could they possibly cause trouble?

It's a mad, mad, PC world, these days. I made the mistake last week, when asked "which receptionist" I had spoken to, and replying, "the cute, softly spoken, blonde one" and was promptly given a telling-off and asked to take my business elsewhere. Wasn't trying to be sexist or anything.... Didn't know her name and I was just describing her based on what I did know, from having looked at and spoken to her. Ho hum....

Simple stuff: had the bassist in the video been a guy then we wouldn't be discussing his physical opinion at all. I know this to be true, for videos of male bassists are shared on here and their appearance is never once mentioned. The physical appearance of a male bassist isn't even any sort of subject of discussion, whether it be pleasing or otherwise. The unconscious bias/mysogyny here is that because the performer is female then their physical appearance somehow factors into the video. This doesn't mean that anybody goes home and beats their wife, simply that you subconsciously apply a different set of rules automatically when a woman is involved in activity X.

This doesn't make me a 'SJW', 'special snowflake' or in any way offended, just to clarify before those tiresome tropes are dragged into it.

Because with the exception of the pretty boy out of Dirty Loops and our cross-dressing Korean friend, they are all boring, ugly and badly dressed.

Edit: and mot of them could do with a good tidy up of their bedroom before they start filming.

I'm sure she's lovely and all that but I've already had enough of relationships where there are too many strings attached.

Would you have [i]put it up[/i], if it was Johnny Vegas playing this tune in his underpants?
[/quote]

Would you mind rephrasing that please? Mr Vegas is concerned about his role in this scenario.

This is a thread which begs for a Hamster intervention.
[/quote]

Careful now.

I got a call from the PC brigade on another thread because I had not made the distinction between hamsters and gerbils. I got my shoulder felt for being insensitive to the rights of all rodents to be individuals. The harassment case is due to be heard in February of next year.

OT. I got bored with the clip halfway through. I had my eyes shut as I listened and it made no difference. Not really my bag.

Simple stuff, the girl in the video is a guitarist, not a bassist - you really should try paying attention before joining in on a discussion...

Simple stuff, I complimented her skills as a guitarist and composer. Simpler stuff, i find her attractive and complimented her good looks. In no way does my opinion or me expressing my opinion about her physical appearance take away from her talents in the same way my opinion on the physical appearance of the guitar does not take away from how the instrument sounds or how she plays it.
I posted the video to share her musical talents as I had really enjoyed listening to and discovering her via this video and thought other people on here might also enjoy her music.

To those who enjoyed the music in the video, Im glad you did and thanks for not missing the point of sharing music.

To those who think me complimenting this young ladies appearance is any way a negative thing, you guys need to get out from behind your keyboards and spend some time in the real world and spend time interacting with real people in real life scenarios. Maybe then you will have a more balanced and realistic outlook on life as well as how and when offence is meant and caused.

Indeed, that guy from Dirty Loops even with his emo haircut is definitely a good looking guy. I know he's not a bassit but you cant tell me Tommy Emmanuel isnt handsome either! Doesnt seem to dress to shabby either. The fact he is one of the greatest players ever to pick up a guitar should be first and foremost in everyone's mind though!

I remember going to see a band play once and got talking to somewhat heavy on top lead guitarist. I think my opening statement was "hey, you've got a great rack going on there".

Cue the most filthy glare thrown to a man in history.

All I was doing the obligatory gear stalking... I think it was the first time I saw a Mesa Triaxis and Soundsculpture switcher in the flesh so to speak.

Aye, PCness has gone so over the top when you can't even make a positive comment about someone's appearance . On another forum I got castigated for a similar positive remark about a girl on a TV show. Cripes, some people are better looking than others and we fancy them more. What's the problem there?
