I personally do not care what gender or sexual preference the next person to join the crew is. Being a woman, a men, interested in men, woman or both, black, white, brown, half bown, theses things don't matter to me. What I care about is having a wonderful new person joining the crew who will fit well with Giant Bomb as a whole. While i was skeptic at first with the addition of Dan, I've become quite fond of him and Jeff has proven to me that he knows who to get.
All i care about is that we get a kickass new human being. No matter what or who they are, no one should be getting preferencial treatment based on their gender of sexual orientation, and never just for the sake of diversity.
