A Google engineer was fired yesterday after he wrote a memo arguing that women are biologically less suited for software engineering jobs compared to men and that Google’s diversity efforts are misguided. The engineer’s memo was circulated widely inside the company on Google+ and on an internal meme generator, Memegen, before Gizmodo published it on Saturday.
Shortly after Gizmodo published the memo, a new Memegen post threatened physical violence against Googlers who leak to the press. The meme remained live for three days and received hundreds of upvotes before Google removed it, Gizmodo has learned.
The meme remixed a popular cartoon by Steve Napierski that shows a Mac user and a PC user—normally opponents—setting aside their differences to beat a Linux user with a baseball bat.
