This manifesto from ex-googler James Damore about diversity and gender equality is a pile of rubbish. This manifesto entitled “google echo chamber” is full of prejudices and stereotypes about men and women. As you may expect, I was interested in what he wrote about genders.
The author who is not a Ph.D. in Biology or sociology and does not refer to any studies, states that there is a biological difference between women and men.
Then, the autist guy states that:
Women on average show a higher interest in people and men in things
In other words, it implies that men don’t care about people. This is a preconception against men. The best example that shows he is wrong are the firemen. Most of the firemen are … MEN.
I have also noticed anti-male statements in this manifesto written by James Damore,
Women on average are more cooperative
The male gender role is currently inflexible
Feminism has made great progress in freeing women from the female gender role, but men are still very much tied to the male gender role. If we, as a society, allow men to be more “feminine,” then the gender gap will shrink, although probably because men will leave tech and leadership for traditionally feminine roles.
I am concerned that some Google employees who are psychologically unbalanced have access to sensitive data at Google. I hope Google will include a psychological screening during their hiring process.
