The Google brouhaha

It’s like we’re having this argument over whether men and women are different again. Seems kinda obtuse to deny that. Some things:

I don’t think the engineer, Damore, ever actually said women are inferior at tech. He said they were less predisposed because they preferred people to things. I don’t disagree.

If we’re to make a qualitative judgement over what is the “better” gender, I do say women. They’re better than men. More sensible in ways. More “good-er”.

Ya know, if you were to nail it down physiologically in a way that might not anger as many people, you might say that men are more aptituded to tech because more men stray into the Asperger’s spectrum. Fixation = capability in a lot of ways.
