Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Damore's principal crime was making Google look bad. Anybody who goes public like that criticizing any policy of their company is asking, no, they're begging, to get fired.

Other people better informed than I have written takedowns of what he actually wrote, citing genuine biologists with specialisms in gender divergence, who trashed the pseudoscience Damore used. So he wasn't discussing science, he was simply babbling prejudice.

Which is why the NLRB had already got established policies in place saying that this BS will not legally stand.

But he got fired for publishing it. He got fired for making his company look bad. It happens to anybody who makes an ass of themselves like that. Shit, it doesn't even matter if what he said was 100% true, that wasn't company policy. And when you work for the company, you publicly agree with the policies, keep your mouth shut or expect to get found out and have your ass kicked out.

keep to the Fen Causeway
