To follow your reasoning the lack of male registered nurses must mean that they are incapable of doing the job. As you can see that silliness cuts both ways.
... partly because of inertia from the time when it was a female-only job but mostly because men don't tend to find that sort of work attractive.

I wonder how Google explains these results:

For the past 14 years Google has run a worldwide coding competition called CodeJam. It attracts tens of thousands of applicants, Including thousands of woman. The 20 finalists are flown to Google headquarters in Dublin where the competition continues and the winner is crowned.

In 14 years there have been 280 finalists. There has never been a female among the 280 finalists.

Men choose work which earns them money and power (power, in this sense means control over his work-life), there are neither in nursing. The male nurses that I work with tend to be less formally educated and worldly, but are strong with the medicine and garner patient satisfaction. Modern nursing is more about healing than nurturing, and more men will enter the profession, albeit slowly in terms of numbers.

Yes, due to the very sex differences that Google denies exist.

And the same can be used as excuses for the small number of female firefighters

They don't explain them. Like all modern liberal bull**** theories, it's about snowflakes precious feelings not facts.

...if by "used as excuses for" you mean to say "explain".

It penetrates all demographic groups as a show stopper for career growth. Silicon Valley is an ageist society. It reminds me of "Logan's Run" - a futuristic "sci fi" from 1976 where citizens who turned 30 were terminated.

I saw that one via a Twitter post.


I wonder how long this video will stay online on Youtube?

LOL on the bold. I'm on the thread because I wanted to speak about the subject from my own POV, which is based, in part on my work leading an HR department along with my knowing about the nuances of workplace issues such as these. You are the one who changed the subject to Summers.

The Obama Administration and Google are not the same organization and Damore is not Summers so Damore believing he would be treated similarly to Summers would be a stupid thing to do on his part.
