rather than a swift tear-down of his character.
Completely agree with you Andrew.

Seriously, it astounds me by the number of people who have come to refer to James Damore as “that Google Dudebro” — isn’t that exactly the kind of gender-based stereotyping that people are saying makes him so wrong and bad in his actions?

I still wonder how the Internet would have reacted if a woman had posted what he did. Saying, “but a woman never would have done such a thing,” seems like a specious way of getting out of having to consider the situation. Would we refer to this Jane Doe as “that self-hating Google woman”? Would she be told to shut up and go away like James has?

I don’t agree with James, but I find the reaction and his treatment to basically reinforce the problems he’s trying to highlight.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
