Why the Google Manifesto of James Damore is Not Discriminatory

I have read the 10-page Google Manifesto of James Damore which was labeled as an "anti-diversity" manifesto, and with all honesty I see nothing wrong with what he is saying.  What happened was a clear case of authority or the hierarchy being so sensitive of a dissenting opinion and in fact not accepting a different view which in reality is the real "anti-diversity" move.


Why am I saying that the Google memo or manifesto is not anti-diversity?  Here's why...


James Damore's Manifesto promotes real diversity and inclusion


We cannot force something that is not meant to be.  Women and men prefer certain jobs and this was pointed out correctly by James Damore.

Women on average show a higher interest in people and men in things
This is absolutely right.  Women tend to be more compassionate than men.  Are you not seeing this?  What's wrong with that?

Women on average are more cooperative
It is harder to cooperate with men since they are more competitive and discussion takes very long.  When a woman is there discussion tend to be more balanced and they tend to cooperate more in view of accomplishing something together.

Reading the full 10-page Google manifesto will enlighten you that this is a very insightful and logical manifesto which deserves an applause rather than punishment.

Equality for Women should Not Give Inequality for Men


Gender equality should give fair treatment for both genders, a thing we are not seeing in society.  If a female for example reports sexual harassment, she is immediately given attention, however in case a male does it he will be given second thought and most of the time ignored.

James Damore sights programs in Google which are only given to certain race and gender.  These in fact are by definition unfair and does not promote equal opportunity.  Equal opportunity states that people should be treated equally and not based on their gender, race or color.

Feminism in trusth is a campaign to put more focus on women and put men at an inferior status.  This should not be the case if we want to achieve gender equality.

Women in tech, equal representation, is it possible?


How many of those who will read this will agree that men are more interested in tech jobs than females?  James Damore himself tell us the reason why.  Jobs like these are stressful and limits a balanced worl-life status, things that women do not prefer.

We always ask why we don’t see women in top leadership positions, but we never ask why we see so many men in these jobs. These positions often require long, stressful hours that may not be worth it if you want a balanced and fulfilling life. 
Status is the primary metric that men are judged on[4], pushing many men into these higher paying, less satisfying jobs for the status that they entail. Note, the same forces that lead men into high pay/high stress jobs in tech and leadership cause men to take undesirable and dangerous jobs like coal mining, garbage collection, and firefighting, and suffer 93% of work-related deaths.

I do agree to what is stated above, do you?


James Damora was fired by Google because of his views, a move which I see as discriminatory and unfair.  This is the reason why this is posted here at Tech Review PH.  As an author and techie, I believe that his opinion gives everyone an insight that sheds the light on the issue and gives some sense of reality.
