In explanatory answers it is imperative that you clarify and interpret the material you present. In such an answer it is best to state the "how or why," reconcile any differences in opinion or experimental results, and, where possible, state causes. The aim is to make plain the conditions which give rise to whatever you are examining.
In reducing software engineering to 8775 typing words into a computer, 8776 you show contemptible ignorance of the intelligence required to create elite, world-class software. At the senior engineering level, at a place like Google, if you don 8767 t possess a Mensa-caliber . you needn 8767 t even apply.
The more it happens, the more brutal the responses will get, even if the latest crime was writing, 8775 Caesar ain 8767 t all he 8767 s cracked up to be 8776 or 8775 Caesar isn 8767 t infallible 8776 .
would both have Extraversion scores of 87. Voila! They are equally extraverted, so no personality differences were found! Because all of those subtraits are identical, or something.
In many situations Intersectional Feminists and SJWs will recognise this specifically when the target of said ableism is a person of colour, LBGTIQ and/or female. When this is the case, Intersectional Feminists and SJWs regard ableism as a grave societal scourge.
Even better, please explain why only Google females took a 8775 safe space 8776 day off from work but none of the men did, even though they likewise found the memo objectionable.
On your last sentence:
I fail to see how your opinions on Capitalism have any bearing on the topic at hand. Venezuela seems awfully authoritarian at the moment is that due to Capitalism? Wait no that was the fault of Socialism
Free Speech actually California is an At Will State, so yes true they can fire anyone for any reason whatsoever. However, a company cannot fire someone who whistle-blows/files a complaint prior to being fired about illegal discriminatory practices within the company before addressing the complaint.
The important thing, McCord said, is that the company do something in response. We can sensitivity-train until hell freezes over, she said. But unless there's consequences to it, it doesn't matter.
And this dovetails with the work of feminists like Hanna Rosin, who wrote 8775 The End of Men 8776 . Women are more likely to excel in the skills required for an information and service economy. You know who doesn 8767 t have the skills to make it in that kind of economy? People with low verbal ability.
But some of this is purely a red herring. If 8775 engineering competence and interest 8776 is a trait about which men and women differ on the order of most of the constructs cited in the memo, even if there 8775 should 8776 be more men than women working at Google, this is no proof that the current figure is one that reflects the optimal mix of men and women. At any rate, while I suspect the author is unconcerned with a dearth of women in the workplace, he does not object to the goal of increasing their representation, only that maybe it shouldn 8767 t be 55/55.
8775 by men who have controlled the education process starting at the elementary school level 8776 ???? Last I looked, it 8767 s women who rule the schools, particularly at the elementary level.
The memo clearly made a case that the division in viewpoint is political. Progressives have consistently said that political speech isn 8767 t protected (in the same way as religious speech is) and therefore Google was within its right to fire him. Unfortunately, Google has implemented its politics in the workplace, and made some of them mandatory. It 8767 s illegal in California to punish an employee for adopting or failing to adopt a political course of action.
In any case, no reasonable person, is advocating that only men should be hired for tech, or any other vocational branch for that matter. The person who is best suited for a position, should get it, regardless of gender, race, etc. It should be about the individual, not the group it belongs to.
