    James Demore stuff :-/
    "suggested women may be biologically inferior engineers"
    Although he did use blunt wording which did make me think that for a few minutes, that's not what i got from reading it. If read in entirety he is making the point that the field should be structured more for the female psychology to allow women to do well in the field and that it is currently made for male type competition and success.
    Where it looks especially bad is under Personality Differences the part of Neuroticism, which looks like he he cut and paste from modern psychology. But coming from someone that is not a Dr. in the field talking to their peers it most definitely reads bad. What i get from the clinical sense of neuroticism is just a personality trait everyone has that essentially means how sensitive you are.
    It just reads like he's a bit on the spectrum and was making an honest attempt to help his female workers lol. The irony to make an attempt to point out the "eco-chamber" that doesn't allow Google to take the right actions to help there female employees is harsh.

    I mean, if we want to argue for arguments sake, and if we just take the title "grand wizard" out of context here, I suppose it sounds sorta cool.

    But the way he phrased the above statement! Just OMG, facepalm! This guy is a moron. I hope he finds work with Donald Trump’s PR team.

    Eh, it’s a mixed bag. He had several opportunities to mitigate the damage, or at least avoid further inflammation, but he either ignored or missed every one of those opportunities.

    I don’t really find it funny, but I don’t find it offensive either.
    It would be similar to saying that the design of the Swastika is pretty cool, which is unfortunate because of what it is now associated with.
    I’ve always thought the name Judas was a great name, but I sure wouldn’t give it to one of my kids… it’s been tainted.

    Admittedly, I’ve only worked for a few organizations…. But I’ve never seen this. I’ve had hippy bosses and religious conservatives… and they’ve all been open for frank discussion and not discriminated at all. Even my ludicrously liberal alma matter didn’t seem to cause any problems with conservative managers and employees.
    I guess I hear a lot of people intimating this so as to frame one party or the other as the oppressed minority, but I’ve not seen any statistics or even realistic anecdotes to support it.
