Google as shining light in the sea of darkness right?
You could have made the same points about diversity/psychological safety without them. Although, I don’t think either would have changed the reaction.
My biggest concern is the number of people who don’t understand how distribution differences aren’t stereotypes and can’t be applied to individuals. Regardless of wether [sic] or not there are differences and if they are biological or cultural, this is just a blatant logical fallacy.
Yesterday evening, after Damore had been fired, one employee even posted a link to alt-right troll (and possible Trump administration adviser) Chuck Johnson's crowdfunding site, We Searchr, where a crowdfunding campaign for Damore had already popped up."Personally, I'm not at all surprised to see this," says Kelly Ellis, a former Google software engineer who has previously spoken out about sexual harassment at the company.
"Those guys like to pretend that they're silenced and afraid, but they're not."Damore's treatise invited derision internally as well.
That memo, which Google employees first started tweeting about on Friday night and has since leaked in full (several times), attempts to make a case against the push for gender equality in tech and engineering, specifically because "men and women biologically differ in many ways." Damore argues that women are more likely to have innate biological traits that make them inferior engineers.
