    Google fires employee behind anti-diversity memo

    "(Reuters) - Internet giant Google has fired the male engineer at the center of an uproar in Silicon Valley over the past week after he authored an internal memo asserting there are biological causes behind gender inequality in the tech industry.
    James Damore, the engineer who wrote the memo, confirmed his dismissal, saying in an email to Reuters on Monday that he had been fired for "perpetuating gender stereotypes".
    Management at the largest tech firms, including Google, have publicly committed to diversifying their workforces, although the percentage of women in engineering and management roles remains low at many companies.
    Damore's memo attacked the idea that gender diversity should be a goal.
    "The distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and ... these differences may explain why we don't see equal representation of women in tech and leadership," Damore wrote in the internal company memo last week.

    Commenters: "

    • Funny, if you look him up on LinkedIn, his undergrad degree is molecular biology and his PhD is in systems biology, yet, he was a software engineer at Google. In anyone is qualified to make sexist remarks about biology,this guy would be it.

      • Just imagine what a Google does with your personal information since they know the political leanings of anyone with a gmail account or use Google search. You've been warned

    Nothing really

    Re: Google fires employee behind anti-diversity memo

    It's PR. they have to fire him or google would receive a lot of flack from stock holders, and the public.

    Obviously what the guy said is 100% true, and women just aren't as qualified as men for these kinda jobs, but saying that out loud in a public company is a death sentence. he should have known that. He should have known that women were coming at him with crocodile tears, and muh misogyny
    Sad, but one day our kids will have to visit museums to see what a lady looks like.

    People talk about Google because they are rich and smart. Stupid and poor are just as gynocentric and authoritarian.

    No one is equal, but some are more equal than others.

When news of the donation became public, he was highly criticised, and ultimately resigned from the role.

    Looks like this guy might be Red Pill or MGTOW and doesn't know it yet! Anyway, there is a movie about the PC future of constant Google spying - the Circle. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCOXARv6J9k They are watching you!
    "“The company was founded under the principles of freedom of expression, diversity, inclusiveness and science-based thinking,” Alphabet Chairman Eric Schmidt said at the time. “You’ll also find that all of the other companies in our industry agree with us.” Enjoy your freedom of expression on women in the workplace and science based thinking but your kind of Red Pill diversity isn't wanted here - You're fired from our inclusive company!

    You don't even need to write any words to sum up this phenomenon...

    Of course they did. For "perpetuating gender stereotypes". No for being no good at his job, or anything like that.

    Very soon, the Google edifice will begin to creak and totter for want of engineering talent.

    Of all employees fired for expressing unwelcome personal political or social views, how many are men? Apart from that female journalist who hung up a mock Donald Trump severed head, I'm guessing all of them.

    But how many women actually make offensive political and social comments about men? Lots. We've all heard them.

    If ever there was any need of evidence for the hostile, sexist work environment that men live under, the long history of male-only sackings for not being silent and obedient is it.

    Re: Google fires employee behind anti-diversity memo

    Google's involvement with the Clinton campaign was one thing... but firing a Harvard PhD for this?

    I would have thought Google was a longterm civilizational fixture.. but I cant use a service that hates my kind.

    Throw it in Le Garbage indeed!!

    Rebels of Google: ‘Imagine Your Google Account Frozen on Purpose’

    https://anonym.to/http://www.breitba...en-on-purpose/

    Jordan Peterson's account was temporarily frozen.

    This was exactly what happened to Jordan Peterson, the Canadian academic and critic of identity politics. Prior to the Damore controversy, Peterson was inexplicably locked out of his Google accounts, including gmail and YouTube. (My interview with Peterson about the incident will be published in the coming week).

    According to Beckett, Google already employs technology to scan its users’ email accounts for unwelcome content.

    “Google already has a policy of proactively scanning user data (Drive and Gmail) for illegal pornography, by matching files and attachments against a database of known image hashes” says Beckett.

    “The only thing stopping them from scanning user data for other things, like pirated music and movies, is that someone in charge of that policy has decided illegal porn is harmful enough to justify snooping on users’ data, and piracy isn’t. But that’s just one person’s opinion.”

    “What if that one person were replaced by someone else who believed offensive speech was a form of violence? If they insisted it was OK to proactively scan users’ emails and comments for links to sites that promoted the wrong views, and everyone who disagreed with them was afraid to speak up…?”

    Google Issuing Refunds to Advertisers Over Fake Traffic, Plans New Safeguard:
    Some advertisers question level of refunds, want more details about fraudulent traffic
    google-issuing-refunds-to-advertisers-over-fake-traffic-plans-new-safeguard

    This is a cause of fake advertising traffic:
    As online advertising becomes ever more ubiquitous and unsanctioned, AdNauseam works to complete the cycle by automating Ad clicks universally and blindly on behalf of its users. Built atop uBlock Origin, AdNauseam quietly clicks on every blocked ad, registering a visit on ad networks' databases. As the collected data gathered shows an omnivorous click-stream, user tracking, targeting and surveillance become futile.

    The top comment says it all: this is actually painful to watch because it is true.
