As Twitchy reported, the Google employee who wrote an “anti-diversity memo” suggesting biological differences between men and women are the reason there are fewer women in technical fields was fired, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai addressed the controversy with his own memo saying the employee had crossed the line by “advancing harmful gender stereotypes.”

Plenty have noted that by firing James Damore over a memo in which he criticized Google as “an ideological echo chamber,” the company just proved him right.

In fact, plenty of people who seem to think they’re defending Google are doing just the opposite. NPR, for example, talked to a former Google software engineer who claimed that some women stayed home from work Monday because they were so upset over the memo.

Yep.
