See how it is glibly passed off as though it were some slight disagreement, like which flavour of ice cream is best? “Well, we’ll agree to disagree about half the population being biologically unsuitable for this kind of work.” And then that’s followed by what is genuinely—in good faith—intended as a compliment. But the juxtaposition of the two results in the message “Hey, you’re really good …for a woman.”

That’s what I find so teeth-grindingly frustrating about all this. I don’t think that guy is a troll. If he were, I could just block and move on. He genuinely thinks he’s a good person who cares about objective truth. He has been played.

If you read the memo and thought “seems reasonable to me”, I hope you can see how you have been played like a violin https://t.co/KLt9qtLNjC

Oh, first of all, let me just get past any inevitable whinging that I’m not bothering to refute the bullshit contained therein. In the spirit of Brandolini’s law, here are some thorough debunkings: Okay, with that out of the way, let me get to what really grinds my gears about this. via Pocket

No question it's *written* moderately, but I think some of this addresses my feelings about it.

RT : “This casual cruelty. This insidious, never-ending miasma of sexism. It is well and truly intolerable.” Damn right

Another on the some ideas are just wrong and trying to pretend that "it's just a debate about ideas" is just being a git.

This will convince no one. It may push some people more firmly to the other side, however.

Jeremy Keith has one of the best responses to the bad google thing, which also explains why I’m reluctant to read it

“A-ha!” cry the oh-so-logical and thoroughly impartial men, “If a topic cannot even be debated, you must be threatened by the truth!” That is one possible conclusion, yes. Or—and this is what Occam’s razor would suggest—it might just be that I’m fuc…
