James Damore, the former Google engineer who published a screed against Google’s diversity initiatives, wants you to know he isn’t using autism as an excuse. But in fact, he is.
He says being on the spectrum means he “sees things differently.” And yet another interview with the 28-year-old shows he still doesn’t fully understand why everyone got so upset that he attributed the lack of diversity at Google and in the tech industry to biological differences between men and women.
Meanwhile, Google — like many other companies in tech and elsewhere — continues to be largely white and male both in the overall composition of its workforce and in its leadership.
This guy is just a jerk and a loser.
