The Google engineer fired for his 'sexist' memo has posted a new Twitter profile photo of him wearing a 'Goolag' shirt in the same style as the tech giant's logo.

Diatribe - Women - Tech - Industry

He defended his diatribe that claimed women were not biologically cut out for the tech industry.

In the more than 45-minute interview, Damore revealed that he wrote the controversial memo during a 12-hour flight to...
