I’m not a fan of “PC-based equality” (let me explain)
Recently in the world, there’s been this “social terrorism” where companies are being dragged through the mud if they did not diversify their staff. Now, to clarify, no one should EVER be discriminated against, but let’s take an old standby for example. A company was being poached for not having many females in a particular sector of its operations. In someone’s mind “An equal number of females to males is fair, balanced and diverse.” However, this mathematical equilibrium has no bearing on the performance of your company. As a company owner, you want to hire the most qualified person for a job; not just bring in different genders, races, etc. until there is equal representation across the board. Again, don’t get me wrong, if, for example, a highly qualified woman applies and you turn her down for ANY reason despite the fact that she’s best qualified, THEN there’s a problem; you’re no longer putting the company’s best foot forward.
Same deal here, to me. Many people want a female assault because there simply is none right now, so to them, the next “logical” thing to do is to make one. I feel this undermines the creative process just for fear of repercussion from the public’s imposition of an outdated stance of “equality”.
I get the feeling I might have opened a can o’ worms here, so if someone really takes offense to what I’ve said, please do me the common courtesy of requesting clarification; I definitely don’t mean any disrespect to anyone. In fact, I’m a firm believer if equality across all races and sexes. This is, to me, more a stance on “what’s good for the game” vs. “what would idealistically give us the most diverse array of player archetypes in the game.”
