Google fires the employee who criticized diversity policy...

As is the case with the twenty first century politically correct definition of diversity... we have to understand that there is "good" types of diversity and "bad" types of diversity. There are all sorts of good diversity, and we much adhere and more often than not bend to those who may be different than us in any one of a hundred different regards.

Be prepared to use gender neutral pronouns, as to not offend that person who demands that the biological science of chromosomes and physical gender is a hoax. Be prepared to accept numerous behaviors that have traditionally been frowned upon, because those behaviors are now deemed to be part of a "culture".

However, there can only be one political orthodoxy, and anyone who dissents from the rigid nature of the cause represents the "evil" diversity of thought. Fuck the first amendment. Anyone who truly understands diversity understands that thought is the one area where diversity simply cannot be allowed.

Fired, Then shot, drawn and quartered that asswipe. But he did get his picture on the msm news today, and maybe that is what he wanted. But, our esteemed host thinks being an idiot is worthy of a thread to discuss genetics. Maybe he should link up the leaked GW report put out by our government. I am sure he will find it full of errors and wrong. My guess, donnie will choose to ignore it, so the leaker did us a favor since the POTUS position is there is no connection to humans in the current trends. Oh well, I'M sure some excerpts will sneak into a post or 2........

A much better subject that actually impacts all....Sad our esteemed host is obsessed with a stupid memo written by a nerd who probably has trouble getting laid....

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/07/climate/climate-change-drastic-warming-trump.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news

WASHINGTON — The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years, according to a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration.

The draft report by scientists from 13 federal agencies, which has not yet been made public, concludes that Americans are feeling the effects of climate change right now. It directly contradicts claims by President Trump and members of his cabinet who say that the human contribution to climate change is uncertain, and that the ability to predict the effects is limited.

“Evidence for a changing climate abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans,” a draft of the report states. A copy of it was obtained by The New York Times.

The authors note that thousands of studies, conducted by tens of thousands of scientists, have documented climate changes on land and in the air. “Many lines of evidence demonstrate that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse (heat-trapping) gases, are primarily responsible for recent observed climate change,” they wrote.

The report was completed this year and is a special science section of the National Climate Assessment, which is congressionally mandated every four years. The National Academy of Sciences has signed off on the draft report, and the authors are awaiting permission from the Trump administration to release it.

Google is a private company so it has a right to pursue fascist policies.

You don't have to work for them or use their products.

That being said, I was amused that there were some women so upset with the memo they couldn't come to work.

I am coming to the conclusion that universal military service for our young men and women might not be a bad idea after all.

Somebody needs to teach them how to be adults.

IS President Trump Correct when he suggest to congress that we begin to cut allocated funds to the Welfare Programs?


Simple answer, YES< in a humming economy, with more people working, the drop in illegals sucking off of the resources of the US Tax Payer it is time to lower the amount USDA and other government orgs receive.

The crash is occurring....

Tuesday’s CNN poll confirms that Trump’s support is shrinking. It finds that his approval is down to 38 percent, with 56 percent disapproval. Only 37 percent say he has the right priorities, while 59 percent say he hasn’t paid attention to the country’s most important problems. Americans say by only 43 percent to 55 percent that he can bring the change the country needs.

Trump's approval rating lags even among key supporters

[From ‘I need loyalty’ to ‘Witch Hunt’: Trump’s second 100 days, in his words and ours]

But more interesting, perhaps, is what the CNN poll tells us about his overall communications strategy:

55 percent say Trump has lowered the stature of the presidency, while only 17 percent say he has raised it, and another 25 percent say it is unchanged.
Only 31 percent say Trump’s actions have made them more confident in his ability to serve as president, while a staggering 62 percent say his actions have made them less confident.
A total of 73 percent have low trust in what they hear in official communications from the White House: 30 percent trust nothing at all, and 43 percent trust just some of it, while 19 percent trust most of it and 5 percent trust almost all of it — meaning only 24 percent trust much of what this White House tells them.
Meanwhile, the CNN poll finds broad discomfort with Trump’s use of Twitter. A large majority says Twitter does allow Trump to communicate directly, but few Americans think this is a good thing:

A majority (52%) say his tweets are not an effective way for him to share his views on important issues, and 72% say they do not send the right message to other world leaders.

Seven in 10 say they too often seem to be in response to TV news the President may have seen, and 71% that they are a risky way for a president to communicate. Six in 10 say they are easy to misunderstand, 63% that they too often turn out to be misleading.

Trump’s operating premise has been that he can scramble the political calculus with his unconventional, disruptive communications approach, which involves using social media and rallies to communicate directly with the American people, while

OOPS......

KD said...

O'Jane,,, here is my answer , you believe that nothing has changed since President Trump has taken over, ok.

C.H. Truth said...

I am curious, Opie...

Did you actually read the memo yourself?

I does little more than make an argument that has been made by many sociologists and others over the years. That there are genetic differences between men and women that tend to create differences in priorities and differences in their choice of work.

Whether or not you agree that Women tend to be more social, are better working cooperatively, and tend to be more interested in life balance... while men tend to be more independent, competitive, and tend to favor the status of career success to other aspects of their lives... is irrelevant.

Whether or not you agree that these differences tend to make technical jobs (such as computer coding and development) more of a male dominated field is also irrelevant.

But it may be a 'better' explanation than the concept that there is some sort of inherent hiring discrimination against women that is creating the gap between men and women in the tech industry. There seems to be little evidence of any discrimination where there is a quite of bit of evidence that more men simply "choose" to train themselves in the technical field than women do.

Bottom line is that one does not have to agree or disagree with this particular argument that there are genetic differences in social behavior between the sexes. But to pretend that it's not a legitimate argument (given that it historically has been accepted as a status quo fact) is a little hard to take seriously.

Lastly - Just because someone take offense to the argument, doesn't mean that it's unacceptable to make.

Besides cutting unnecessary regulations right and left, enforcing border security, engaging companies to come back to America, to have a pro-business agenda, fighting against the Obamacare health insurance scam, and working on a fairer tax code I guess not much.

ROFLMFAO !!!

JOLTS Report, Joining in on this Humming Economy

"Job openings rose sharply in June, to 6.163 million from 5.702 million in May"

Yep as more business profit they expand, needing more workers, welfare interlopers leave the Hammock for a paycheck, reducing the need to fund Welfare at Obama Levels and so it goes a new healthy economy.

Pollster said...

A new IBD/TIPP poll finds President Trump’s approval rate at a dismal 32% to 59%.

KD, NK already has Nukes thanks to the do nothing Obama said...

Oh and just to piss off the losers known as the Three little Liberal Stooges, that JOLTS report is the highest in 12 years, so much for the lost years, very forgettable and President Trump is easily erasing them.

You know those never wrong Intelligence guys of the USA just told us NK already has nukes, got them in the last 4 years, now their is a legacy , thanks Water Carrier Obimbo the trained monkey.

You know what I like about polls, they seem to have great meaning to the losers.

Yet, actual winning an election, no so much.

If you find comfort in polling enjoy, I take comfort in winning elections.

When you have nothing else, hang on to a poll.

Even cnn poll, taken after the ibd poll, has trump ad 38%. But leave it to James to post an older poll because he likes the lower number.

wphamilton said...

I dunno CH, I was prepared to entertain a perspective like yours on Google firing the engineer who wrote the memo. But I found it online, read it, and it really did promote demeaning gender stereotypes.

I think he was reacting to a corporate culture that he had difficulty tolerating, and he was asking, or demanding, to get fired. There is more than meets the eye here, but even on the surface of it I can't argue with Google firing him. And by the way, from what I've read previously about Google I wouldn't fit in either and I'd probably be miserable in their culture. Their emphasis on "diversity" is in fact surprising, given their reputation for a pervasive age bias, and the penchant for pitting employees against each other. It looks to me like this guy had enough, and his memo was a parting manifesto.

opie said...

Did you actually read the memo yourself?

It was a pile shit, just like most or your threads...

a male dominated field is also irrelevant.

And so is your comment. The asshole got what he deserved, right wrong or irrelevant. If you were stupid enough to publish that piece where you ply your trade, my guess you would have been canned also. And any of your rationalization as to relevance, would be interesting discussion as HR walked you out. Can't fix idiocy

opie said...

We always ask why we don’t see women in top leadership positions, but we never ask why we see so many men in these jobs. These positions often require long, stressful hours that may not be worth it if you want a balanced and fulfilling life.

If you think this is not offensive, CH, you really need help.

C.H. Truth said...

If you think this is not offensive, CH, you really need help.

It doesn't matter if you or I find it offensive or not. It's an opinion. One that up until very recently has been tied to mainstream sociology and psychology. There were many studies on the subject of gender specific strengths and weaknesses... what he is stating is actually what many of these studies (right wrong or indifferent) found to be factual.

We can pretend all we want that there is no differences between the genders. If you made the same argument that men are taller and weigh more (with some overlap) would that be an offensive argument to make in spite of obviously being 100% true?

Why does the argument that women are more cooperative, while men are more competitive... that women work better in social situation, where men work better independently... that women do not define themselves (or their success) by their careers as much as men do... have to be offensive?

If you believe it to be wrong... then argue differently. But you refuse to even argue it. You simply demand that the entire argument go away because you are offended.

What is it like to live in a constant state of emotional turmoil because the world is full of so many opinions that don't align with yours, Opie? I feel so bad for those of you who are so intolerant that those who disagree with you have to be punished and cast out.

Roger Amick said...

This isn't a freedom of speech issue. An internal memo, saying that women are born unable to be engineers. Statements inside the company are not protected by the First Amendment rights.

Run that by your wife. We will send you flowers to your hospital room.

My lovely Panamanian Queen would use a machete.

C.H. Truth said...

But I found it online, read it, and it really did promote demeaning gender stereotypes.

But WP... I assume you are in my age bracket. You must understand that the opinions that this person expressed (right, wrong, or indifferent)... were at one time very mainstream opinions within the sociology and psychology realm.

It seems (to me) that while they may appear to be demeaning... and they are certainly a stereotype, I wonder (out loud) how it is that these stereotypes existed and still exist in nearly every culture throughout history. There have always been both physical and emotional differences between the sexes.

Just because those difference offend people today... or just because some want us to live in some genderless society... doesn't make the opinion obsolete (which is what is seemingly being argued here).

That being said, you probably are correct when you state that he may have been looking to be fired. Within all of what I would suggest was reasonable, he did push the limits with his manifest.

I know people who have had the same issues working with Microsoft and other big tech industries (out in Seattle where I spend a great deal of time). They drive their employees hard and they expect them to fit into a particular box (even as they suggest differently). Of course, ironically nearly everyone I know in those industries are independent working, antisocial males (a couple who are autistic), who specifically got into the tech industry exactly for the reasons this guy states men flourish in the tech.

Roger Amick said...

Trump just gave praise to Mueller for being fair and just look at this without right now take a look. Because it a Witch Hunt then he praises the guy, its online right now look for it. I'm busy. You don't want to know why.:-)

C.H. Truth said...

Run that by your wife. We will send you flowers to your hospital room.

Many of my wife's friends are what she calls "devs" who work in the tech industry. She was told at one time she had a career if she wanted to go to Microsoft and teach all of the anti-social males how to interact with women. How to dress around them, how to ask for dates, etc.

She knows first hand that there is a certain "type" of person (mostly males) who seem to thrive in that specific industry. There is nothing offensive about it.

You are also old enough to know that these stereotypes are ingrained into the culture of many people. Both historically and globally in 2017, this guy's opinion would be mainstream... and the opinion of google (and the gender equal society arguments) would be a very small minority view.

Indy Voter said...

The memo didn't read like a sociology paper. The author was far too willing to make sweeping generalizations about gender. That he (usually) qualified these in the following paragraph with statements that the generalization he had just made didn't apply to everyone of that gender, he kept piling on with more and more generalizations. And his conclusions only reinforced the generalizations, as I saw it.

I'm not sure if the guy was secretly trying to get fired, as WP suggests, but he really doesn't know how (or want) to make arguments in a manner that promotes discussion.

Like I said before, it read like a CH pos... lots of words, most of it BS...but our esteemed host defends the conservative view....

Commonsense said...

Whether the memo was accurate or inoffensive is not the issue.

Google has stated publically that it's a diverse company that encourages a "free exchange of ideas".

However most of their employees feared that if they ever express a view outside the politically correct , SWJ, leftist culture of the company, they would be fired.

And they were correct.

wphamilton said...

Within our time frame, say the last 40 years or so, no I do not agree that his memo reflected mainstream views of psychology.

I'm pretty sure that it would play well on "All in the Family" though.
