The Wrong Reasons

words by DrJohnGalt

A game developer* making sure everybody knows how awesome and “diverse” and “inclusive” his next project will be is as phony and sanctimonious as those religious folk who pray a little too loudly at the next table at Chili’s or the people who spend half their free time doing charity work and the other half bragging about it on social media.

If you’re going to do something, do it.

If you have to let everybody know you’re doing it, you’re probably doing it for the wrong reason.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Yes, this includes devs who’ve done games I’ve enjoyed. Guess what? Having a strong straight, white, male lead character doesn’t make you a racist, sexist, “homophobe”, or a bad guy.
