Diversity

Funnily enough the loudest complaints I've heard recently against corporate schemes to 'improve diversity' have come from people who should nominally be the ones who'd benefit. LGBTQ, women, minorities.

Partially because they get insulted that people think they need help, and to a great extent because it really pisses them off that other people can ride on their coat tails and get a benefit based on something they themselves want treated as irrelevant to their job, rather than their actual merits.

Remove unfair barriers but please don't think you should manipulate the system to force an outcome.
