Hey, I wanted to chime in here with a point about this kind of talk in our community.
From time to time, people complain about how gypsy jazz is mostly a man's world. At any given event, whether a jam or a festival, it's mostly dudes and few women.
I think most (all?) of us would agree it'd be great for this music if more women were involved, both as musicians and as listeners. Making statements like "Who's the hot chick"
-- even if innocent and with no bad intentions -- sends a message that this is a boys' club. At best, it can make women feel uneasy; at worst, it can dissuade them from participating entirely.
I don't mean to single out the people in the "Who's the hot chick" thread (and I realize it's almost five years old!). I've seen many posts on this forum over the years that objectify women -- again, likely with no bad intentions, just in subtle ways. Point is, we can and should do better. If more people get interested in gypsy jazz, we all benefit.
