I am *not* dismayed that Google fired the author of the recent diversity manifesto, but I wanted to see what arguments the writer uses.

“We men face shame and firing if we say the wrong thing. Women face the same plus rape threats, death threats, and all kinds of sustained harassment. So women can’t speak up safely and therefore they would have to watch their male colleagues discuss how a woman’s brain determines her interests. How impossibly maddening that would be.”

Here’s the problem: If you have a controversial opinion and you express it alone in your home or to trusted friends that’s obviously fine. If you express it in public but in a way where it causes no harm that is fine. But if you have a controversial opinion that, by its very nature, sparks a conversation that causes people harm, then it causes harm to express it.

This is an excellent article for anyone who doesn't get why people think the Google Manifesto is bad.
