Diversity rebel James Damore sues Google

Diversity rebel James Damore sues Google, by Jack Nicas.

Former Google female employees last week sued the company for allegedly discriminating against women. Overnight (AEDT), former male employees sued Google for allegedly discriminating against conservative white men.

The duelling lawsuits illustrate the increasing tensions over differences in how men and women are treated in the workplace, an issue that has exploded as revelations of inequality and sexual harassment have rocked industries ranging from tech to entertainment to media. …

James Damore, the former Google engineer who fuelled that debate with a memo suggesting men were better suited than women for certain tech jobs, and another former Google engineer filed the lawsuit.

They allege that Google is a hostile workplace for employees with conservative views, and that the company unfairly favours women and certain minorities when hiring and promoting. …

According to the suit, Google presenters at a June 2017 event titled “Diversity and Inclusion Summit” discussed how Google treated women and minorities differently in the hiring process, including by putting them “into high priority queues so that they were more likely to be hired, and hired faster.”

Diversity has taken over from meritocracy at Google, as it has in many workplaces now (often courtesy of HR Departments staffed by postmodern arts graduates). Here’s a fact that the PC crew suppresses with all its might — it’s well known in psychometric science, but have you seen it before? It explains much of what is going on:

IQ intelligence male female

The distribution of g [raw intelligence] in male and female populations. The scale of the horizontal axis is in units of the male standard deviation.

The distributions look about the same, but if you inspect closely you find that only 37% of humans with IQs over 120 (the bottom of managerial level) are female. So when feminists claim that 50% of managerial jobs should be theirs, they are scientifically incorrect.

As the threshold IQ moves up, the male-female numbers gap only grows larger. For Google researchers, the minimum IQ is considerably above 120, where the proportion of males to females is considerably greater than the two to one it is at 120.

The only solution in line with PC assumptions is is to dumb down the public service, the universities, schools, fire officers, armed forces, companies, …. The standard solution throughout the PC West when white men dominate on merit has been to dilute the effect of merit down and down until ideological outcomes are achieved. Then they wonder why nobody seems to be as competent as they used to be.
