As Jeff Foxworthy might has said: You might be neurotic is you are neurotic about being thought of as neurotic. Google CEO Sundar Pichai needs to fires himself.   Pichai fired the heretofore Unknown Male Engineer, one James Damore, for the sin of arguing “by advancing harmful gender stereotypes”, from Verge:

The memo has clearly impacted our co-workers, some of whom are hurting and feel judged based on their gender. Our co-workers shouldn’t have to worry that each time they open their mouths to speak in a meeting, they have to prove that they are not like the memo states, being “agreeable” rather than “assertive,” showing a “lower stress tolerance,” or being “neurotic.”

Evidently Pichai argues wymen are ton neurotic to handle being thought of a being a member of a neurotic class, thus Pichai advances a harmful sexual stereotype, and therefore Pichai needs to fire himself, now.

Reax, Professor Jacobson, Legal Insurrection:

This is a pretty chilling development. It completely proves the Senior Engineers point about the shaming and shut-down culture that surrounds discussions of discrimination and diversity.

Pichai fired Damore for suggesting the men and women are different, telling males that their perceptions of unfair treatment do not matter because some wymen would be offended by Damore’s essay. Protect wymen. Tell men to suck it up.
