The Google controversial manifesto (anti-diversity) memo

Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber

Misplaced solution or just a really bad idea?

Has anyone else read it?

Tech-bro with only ~4 years experience says diversity is going too far. Shocker.

Google was right to fire him.

It's 10 pages of sexist drivel. He claims women don't excel in tech because of biological differences, then cries that he feels discriminated against for being a conservative.

tl;dr: "Diversity is bad, empathy is bad, white males are oppressed."

With an added scoop of, "women are biologically incapable of coding", which handily ignores the history of computer programming up until the 80's.

- Just posting an article and link, particularly as the first post in a thread, w/o any additional commentary to continue the dialog is not allowed. If it's good enough to post it's worth commenting on as well.

Closed.
