“The viewpoint Damore is espousing is known as biological essentialism. It's used by people who have been told all their lives that they're special and brilliant, and in moments of insecurity or arrogance, seek to prove this with junk science. Junk science like "women are biologically unsuited to technical work", which – despite all his thesaurus-bothering, pseudoscientific linguistic cladding (see, I can do it too) – is the reductive crux of his argument.”
