Controversial 'Google Manifesto' Fuels Debate Over Gender Bias in Silicon Valley

Google has cancelled a company-wide "town hall" meeting due to fears of employee harassment.

In what we can only assume is great news for AltaVista and Ask Jeeves, anti-diversity advocates and the "PC culture-gone crazy" crowd have declared war on Google, attempting to organize a march on several of its business headquarters in the USA, scheduled to take place next week. Numerous former female employees of Google also made a claim that they were paid almost $40000 less than the men employees for performing same duties and responsibilities and the claim even went to the extent wherein the female employee commented that she was paid two third fewer salaries than the male colleague for the same position and work profile.

"Looking at who works for Google", Yiannopoulos wrote on Facebook.

The Times published another excerpt from Pichai's email where he asserted "our co-workers shouldn't have to worry that each time they open their mouths to speak in a meeting, they must prove that they are not like the memo states, being "agreeable" rather than 'assertive, ' showing a 'lower stress tolerance, ' or being 'neurotic'".

The town hall meeting was meant to address employee grievances after a memo circulated last week claiming that biological gender differences helped explain why women are under-represented at Google. Brooks fingers Google CEO Sundar Pichai as the worst-behaved figure in the controversy surrounding a memo on diversity issues written by an engineer at the communications giant, and excoriates him for caving to a lynch mob. The alt-right and far right are defending Damore as outing what they see as politically correct group think in Silicon Valley. "There are always going to be differences in salary based on location, role and performance, but the process is blind to gender", the report quoted a Google spokesperson as saying.

"To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK", Pichai wrote.

Soldier injured in Pakistan shelling on LoC
On Monday, the Pakistani Army had also targeted forward posts on the Indian side at Baba Khori area in Rajouri district's Naushera sector.

But attempts to encourage white men to write diversity memos is clearly social engineering run amok. "We'll continue to stand for that and be committed to it for the long haul". It offers a candid observation on how Google has uncritically adopted a "moral bias" that favors "ideology" held by the "left". Damore in his memo questioned some of Google's hiring practices and advocated that there needs to be more acceptance of different types of ideologies at Google.

Damore said in the Bloomberg interview he was "hurt" by the firing. When we reached out to Google for comment, they directed us to the Recode article.

Damore received most of the support from Uber, where 64 percent of employees disagreed with Google's decision.

At Apple, about 49 percent employees thought Google was wrong to fire Damore. Google Vice President for Education Maggie Johnson said, "It's definitely a defining moment for Google and our culture".

The memo's author claims to value diversity and inclusion. "You belong here and we need you".
