damore admits sexism exists but is insensitive in his critique of diversity efforts. this undermines the cause he claims to care about.

although he lists various biological differences the implication that these differences should cause less women to be interested in tech is unsupported.

in fact these biological differences might only be an issue in the existing male-dominated culture which is flawed, and given a different culture these differences may cause more women to participate and excel in tech.

damore is biased in the gender differences that he focuses on. he lists male diffs that he believes are advantageous in the current culture, and femal diffs that disadvantage.

he doesn't list for example male tendencies to commit violence, or crime, biases which can hurt a company.

there are many true things one can say, and the choice of true things, and the way we curate information demonstrates our bias, and can be harmful in the pursuit of justice.

im finding myself extremely disappointed with the reaction to the google memo from the left and their journalist enablers.

...the response has been to mischaracterize the contents of the memo as something worse than it is.

this prevents debate about the actual points raised to try to get to some resolution or even just understanding.

this is ironic because it's a debate i believe the left should easily win on the merits.

instead the left is reduced to easily disproven lies, which when pointed out cause them to lose moral standing in any further debate.

this is important because these questions are not so obvious, and many people at google and outside are watching and waiting to be educated.

instead the left sabotages itself. something that for someone who desires progressive ends should be deeply frustrating.
