Business Insider has a story where a startup was acquired by Google, and Google kept all of the employees except the startup’s only female employee. She is claiming that Google didn’t hire her because MISOGYNY!  This story was told by a completely anonymous woman so we don’t know if it’s even true or if details are missing.

Assuming that the story is even partially true, what Google did was an “acqui-hire” where Google didn’t acquire the startup as such but just the employees with some signing bonuses to simulate being acquired by Google.  Google was not obligated to hire all of this startup’s employees.  What Google did was hire all of the engineers from the startup.  The lone woman was a graphic designer and marketing chick who completely failed to generate a customer base for the startup’s products.

Google realized that the male engineers has skills they wanted whereas Google had no use for a failed marketing chick.  It wasn’t misogyny unless misogyny means failing to hire women that are failures. 

I expect to see more of these stories in the future.  It’s not because the tech industry is a hotbed of misogyny.  (In reality the tech industry bends over backwards for women.)  It’s because women are you unwilling to take ownership of their failures and blame MISOGYNY! instead.  This will be particularly acute with the tech industry where results matter, and feminists have been producing propaganda against it nonstop.

  1. “It wasn’t misogyny unless misogyny means failing to hire women that are failures. ”

    Since “misogyny” is a girl not getting whatever she demands from men, that’s exactly what it is. The hell with her. Goddamn graphic designer… Fat chance she was even competent; the kind of graphics people you see at tiny startups are a bad joke.

    No designer good enough for Google (not a high bar) would ever work as the lone girl in a room full of coders, and do marketing half the time too.

    Sorry honey. Learn a marketable skill. All those guys who got hired? They busted their brains out mastering a marketable skill and applying it. Silly bitch.

  2. Fuck Google.

    Google & Zuckerberg would rather flood the USA with Pakistanis than hire American women. Both would rather pay Sheryl Sandberg a billion dollars to spout feminism than hire women.

    While companies white knight over the women in tech, the hiring records are awful. (Perhaps justifiably so).

    So yeah, this useless PR women is useless, but her point is valid (except not valid as applied to her).

  3. Good find.

    Marketing skills are fungible but engineers aren’t, Google would have simply offloaded the marketing to its already large marketing department.

    I guess capitalism is misogynistic.

    A good meme.

    In feminism words matter.

    In tech RESULTS matter.

    The comments I saw for that article don’t seem very sympathetic. Wonder if the “woe is me” schtick is wearing thin.

    Google realized that the male engineers has skills they wanted whereas Google had no use for a failed marketing chick.

    This looks like an example of what you wrote about in your HR post. If companies buy other companies or acquire their employees, they can pick and choose what they want. Anything that is likely to be a money sink is simply cut loose.

    That’ll be that ‘Arcane Knowledge’ thing again……

  7. Thinking about this further, this a prime example of Dick Masterson’s comment that women run the race in reverse: they run round a bit then draw the finish line wherever they collapse.

    In so far as the male employees put the effort in to develop valuable technical skills, you can say they ran all the way to the finish line, but this daft cow decided that it was all too hard, took an easy non-job designing flyers or whatever, and now she’s outrageously outraged that she’s not treated like someone with actual skills.
