Google 'Almost Like a Cult', Says Engineer Fired Over Diversity Memo

Google 'Almost Like a Cult', Says Engineer Fired Over Diversity Memo

Damore disagrees with how the company reacted to his post, claiming that he only meant to say men and women differ due to biological reasons and that is why there are not so many female representatives in leadership positions and in the tech industry. He presented a well-researched argument backed by some of the most respected scientific journals.

Google's liberal stance toward self-expression, enabled by those online forums, was created in part to show that it is not bound by the conventions that stifle more stodgy companies. The attorney went on and publicly stated that he interviewed over half of the women who are being affected by Google's wage disparities and said that their allegations will be recognized in court. "I think what's really inspiring is they did this on their own - basically", Johnson added.

The memo sparked widespread rage and heated debate among employees from various companies including Google, Uber, Yahoo, Airbnb, Microsoft, Facebook and Amazon. "For many, including myself, working at Google is a major part of their identity, nearly like a cult with its own leaders and saints".

One of the world's leading philosophers, Peter Singer, believes that Google was wrong in firing Damore. Google CEO Sundar Pichai has been reprimanded by New York Times columnist David Brooks accusing him of mishandling the situation with Damore's dismissal.

Google tried to stop things from getting even more complicated and the CEO fired Damore due to violations in Google's Code of Conduct.

Since his firing, Damore set up a Twitter account nicknamed "Fired4Truth". Damore is dressed in a t-shirt with an altered version of the Google logo that reads "Goolag".

Damore's Twitter account has nearly 60,000 followers despite starting days ago.

Damore's firing outraged supporters of free speech across the United States.

"If Google continues to ignore the very real issues raised by its diversity policies and corporate culture, it will be walking blind into the future-unable to meet the needs of its remarkable employees and sure to disappoint its billions of users", Damore wrote. Google should change its motto from "Don't be evil" to "Only be evil when it suits the narrative".
