Google ‘Biology’ Flap Inspires Men’s Movement
The boys are back. Some male techies are increasingly resisting attempts to diversify and end workplace sexism, inspired by fired Google engineer James Damore, who asserted that tech’s gender gap is grounded in biological differences. While most tech leaders reject the premise, Y Combinator founder Paul Graham has backed Damore, with both claiming that men are victimized by overzealous gender parity efforts. While women still make up just one quarter of the tech workforce, “male separatist” groups and Silicon Valley lawsuits claiming gender discrimination against men are on the rise.
