Google employee to tech giant: “stop alienating conservatives”
The "anti-diversity" memo kicks up politically correct media dust
DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - An internal manifesto at Google, slamming political correctness and pointing out differences between men and women, has gone viral and is being called an "anti-diversity memo" by the secular media. The memo claims that Google leans to the Left, and included a call for Google to "stop alienating conservatives."
Titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber," the manifesto has sent the secular media reeling, referring to the development as "Google's diversity debacle" and asking how the tech giant is coping with the "fallout" of an employee expressing opinions about men and women being objectively distinct.
The memo includes passages such as the following, which CNBC referred to as shocking:
At Google, we talk so much about unconscious bias as it applies to race and gender, but we rarely discuss our moral biases. Political orientation is actually a result of deep moral preferences and thus biases. Considering that the overwhelming majority of the social sciences, media and Google lean left, we should critically examine these prejudices.
The memo asserts, "On average, men and women biologically differ in many ways. These differences aren't just socially constructed because:
They're universal across human cultures
They often have clear biological causes and links to prenatal testosterone.
Biological males that were castrated at birth and raised as females often still identify and act like male
The underlying traits are highly heritable
They're exactly what we would predict from an evolutionary psychology perspective"
The manifesto also contained these statements: "We need to stop assuming that gender gaps imply sexism." The Google employee continues, "Women on average are more cooperative." The employee also alluded to men and women possessing different sets of priorities, "Women on average look for more work-life balance while men have a higher drive for status on average."
These are the assertions that have sparked controversy inside Google and across the secular media. Danielle Brown, Google diversity vice president, responded by issuing a statement which read in part:
Diversity and inclusion are a fundamental part of our values and the culture we continue to cultivate. We are unequivocal in our belief that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as a company, and we'll continue to stand for that and be committed to it for the long haul.
Google has often shown its leftist bias by public actions such as creating a rainbow "doodle" during June for "LGBT pride month." Church Militant has also reported on biased behavior against conservatives on the part of tech giants such as Google and Facebook.
Other platforms such as Vimeo have taken actions like removing over 800 videos belonging to Pure Passion TV, a ministry that reaches out to homosexuals and transgendered persons and helps them out of the lifestyle. On July 18, Facebook censored an anti-Sharia law page known as the Counter Jihad Coalition. On July 21, Church Militant reported that a homosexual tech giant and gay-rights mega-donor told Rolling Stone, "We're going to punish the wicked," referring to Christians who oppose so-called same-sex marriage.
The manifesto saga has unfolded while policies surrounding male-female differences and transgenderism continue to be a subject of fierce controversy in the United States in all arenas from the military to the state legislatures.
