This manifesto from ex-googler James Damore about diversity and gender equality is a pile of rubbish. This manifesto entitled “google echo chambe” 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 and
This leads to women generally having a harder time negotiating salary, asking for raises, speaking up, and leading. Note that these are just average differences and there’s overlap between men and women, but this is seen solely as a women’s issue. This leads to exclusory programs like Stretch and swaths of men without support.
I use to criticize women, but I can’t stand men who rant about women because I am for a fair treatment of men and women. It is better to provide conclusions based on statistics and studies from the US library of medicine.
On the other hand, we can see here what happens when a nerd speaks out. He has no reference, and he is a sociopath with a very limited life experience. NO, women don’t have a problem to negotiate salary, asking for raises, speaking, and leading. Women can be good leaders and good managers.
Let me prove it. In my country, the leader of the conservative party is a woman, and her name is Marine Le pen. In Germany, the chancellor is Angela Merkel. In the UK, the prime is Theresa May. Then, there is a significant number of European female ministers of defense as per August 2017:
- Albania: Mimi Kodheli
- France: Florence Parly
- Germany: Ursula von der Leyen
- Netherlands: Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert
- Norway: Ine Marie Eriksen Søreide
- Spain: Maria Dolores Cospedal
- Sweden had two female ministers of defense until 2014
Does Europe close to WW3? NO. Everything is fine. They lead, and they face anxiety as there were some issues with the Russian authorities in the Baltic Sea area.
Then, he kept on going in an autistic way with no reference:
Women on average show a higher interest in people and men in things
In other words, we don’t care about people. This is what I said previously he is no-life. At least men care as much as women about people.
I have noticed anti-male statements in this manifesto written by a former Google employee:
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.
Women are not more cooperative than men at work. There are people who are more or less cooperative. Period. The male gender role is flexible. It is a free world;, especially in the USA. He wants men to be feminine, but this dictator wannabee does not make the rules. We (the people) make the rule. There are no feminine or masculine roles at work. Women can code as well as men. They are also able to lead teams, achieve goals. This individual sounds very arrogant because he sermonizes one of the biggest multicultural company in the world. He is not one of the Google VP, but he speaks like he knows the undeniable truth about what is good for this company. He sounds really like a little dictator who wants to impose his twisted view of genders.
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.
