I do, actually. Diversity hires and quotas may have served a purpose in the past, but they're ultimately a bad idea.

I'm all for diversity and equality in the workplace and I do agree with the notion that places like writing rooms and game developers need some additional perspectives...but I also think those additional perspectives need to be amongst the best available options, as well. Hiring a woman or a minority just because they're a woman or a minority doesn't really bring anything valuable to the table. If the person in question is a woman and/or minority and they happen to be, say, a great sci-fi scriptwriter...hire 'em!

I'm all for giving people a chance, but a certain level of meritocracy is necessary.

This also isn't the lunacy I was talking about...but, whatever.
