The Infectious Myth -The Damore Manifesto - 08.29.17
Most people took one of two sides with the Google manifesto of James Damore on the role of women in technology. He was either a misogynist pig with no right to express his uneducated and prejudiced views, or a free speech warrior being stifled by out of control political correctness. Few actually read the internal memo, or considered it in that context. David believes that there were a few areas where the document made important points, but also major errors. He doesn’t believe that an internal memo like this should result in someone being fired. Furthermore, many of the people who were, by their political position, opposed to the memo before reading it or talking to Damore, completely missed the valid criticisms of Damore that could be made. People should not let their political inclinations get in front of a dispassionate analysis of what was, in reality, a pretty mundane document, with some insights, some questionable views, and some errors indicating a serious misunderstanding of genetics.
