Isn't what you are saying essentially the same thing? You are implicitly saying by "pandering to gender" (ie in this case hiring more women developers), companies are NOT hiring who's best for the job; implicit meaning being women are somehow not the best for the job? Maybe these women have better qualifications and better experience than their male counterparts. Who knows?He's making a point showing the political pandering that game companies do. He's not saying "look at these women and how they all suck" which is how you are trying to frame it. It's not a stretch to think that pandering to gender instead of who's best for the job will have a negative impact on quality of games.
