Signs of the Times – Washington Post: “Why Google’s firing terrifies social conservatives so much”

“I strongly believe in gender and racial diversity, and I think we should strive for more,” the Google employee wrote. “Women on average show a higher interest in people and men in things. … Women on average are more cooperative. … Women on average look for more work-life balance while men have a higher drive for status on average,” he continued. . . .

According to the tech site Gizmodo, Damore wrote an “anti-diversity screed.” Re/Code referred to it as “sexist.” The tech site Mashable assailed anyone who defended Damore as being part of the “alt-right.” The problem, chiefly, is that many critics claimed Damore said things he did not and painted the things he did say in the worst possible light.

It is, for example, true that Damore said women suffered from “neuroticism” more than men, but he made clear he was using the psychological, scientific terminology for suffering higher anxiety and having a lower stress tolerance in job and life situations. He did not mean it as a pejoratively as the left painted it. In fact, he did not pull his statements out of thin air or make them up. Damore based his statements on sociological and psychological studies that are accepted by the scientific community, of which he is a part.

Social conservatives are looking at what Google has done and, while acknowledging Google has every right to fire an employee, are concerned this outcome bodes poorly for anyone who thinks differently from the left. Click here to continue reading.
