Is there a ban on all women writing teams ? Nope cos your all fucking hypocritical gender nazis.

Because mainstream TV isn’t dying fast enough already.

But women typically aren't funny, if only because a sense of comedy is most effectively developed through suffering, which women aren't allowed to do. Unless they had grown up extremely poor, without meeting diversity pity quotas.

Is there anything left that 'inclusiveness' and 'diversity' has not fucked?

Surely you just want whoever writes the funniest scripts, regardless of which of the two genders they are.

There's a real issue that's about to get bad. Men hire on the basis of merit because the results of their hiring reflect well on them - it's how most businesses and industries work - but there is a subset of women who, when in the position to do the same, will only hire other women, even if there is a more capable or more qualified man. This is going to lead to dramatic decrease in quality of product across a host of industries and even government departments. You can see it already happening in those who became woke first, for example (scummy) organisations like the BBC.

There goes any chance of them being funny.

Research has shown that average guys get overlooked compared to average women when it comes to attraction.

Men have to try harder and one of the most successful avenues is a sense of humour. Sure, there’s the odd exception here and there but men, in general, are far funnier.

This equal outcome approach spits in the face of meritocracy and continues to highlight how disgusting agenda-driven feminists are.

They won’t stop until they’ve broken everything.

"Last year, when reviewing the gender balance of scripts she was sent" Hmm, okay, that's a fucking red flag right there.

"If you have the same type of writers in terms of race or sexual orientation or gender, then you're only getting one kind of joke,"

And boom, there it is, the blatant racism sexism and just outright bigotry. Surprised she isn't calling for religion to be included in that bullshit list.

Looks as if fun is following truth down the pan.

I would generally agree, IF including at least one woman would improve the comedy. What happens when a show is written by one person? Does a woman get shoehorned in to fill a diversity gap?
