That basically encapsulates the entire truth about Apple vs. everyone else.
Don't be silly. And don't put words in my mouth to derail the topic.Faux-feminisim has reached an all time high in the media this year, and Apple is responding to it. Who asks the question, "Why aren't more women giving keynotes?" That is the kind of stupid irrelevant question that comes from someone who has had their agenda written for them by #trending #topics.
Thats essentially my entire point. Its not for any legitimate, honest reason. Its for PR.
How so? To me this kind of attitude is just playing into the hands of those who want diversity for diversity's sake...rather than fair and equal treatment of all.
Must we continue to bark up the wrong tree? Who cares if women or men give the keynotes? As long as the person up there belongs there because they are best for the part, then it shouldn't matter. 
Are you completely blind to the disgusting trend of force-fed diversity in the media?  I'm all for competent and capable women playing any role a man can, and vice versa. I couldn't care less who stands up there to deliver the goods. I DO care however about whether or not the person up there belongs there, or is there because management is responding to a particularly grotesque PR trend that is eroding honesty and freedom.
But what you suggest begs for the diversity to be legitimate, and naturally sprung. For it to mean anything it needs to have evolved naturally of its own accord. Forced diversity, or in this case the rabid Internet #trend called faux-feminism has nothing to do with that. Its just a buzz word, a talking about...one that public figures have to answer "correctly" or be lambasted. Any sort of forcibly diversifying roles that people fill unnaturally is a strike against freedom...
You're a woman, obviously. Why is this a good move? Why specifically is it good to have women delivering a keynote? I'm really looking forward to your answer, because no matter what it is, it will have nothing to do with the merits of the person chosen for the job and everything to do with faux-feminist bullshit.
What I always find fascinating is how tech bloggers that pay very close attention to Apple can recognize that the media will lie, cheat, and steal to push their own agenda forward. Yet, in other aspects of life, like anything related to politics or foreign affairs, people just assume its all true, and doesn't have that same layer of bullshit.
Hey Apple can you run some of that fiber to my house while you're at it?
