Many good points, but your description of the google case came across as rather slanted. It made me doubt a lot of your other claims. E.g. you left out a crucial piece which was that the google employee had Asperger. Now I don’t know the case very well but it seemed to be a lot more to it than how you described it.

This kind of black and white thinking is what we should get away from. It only strengthens extremists. It must be possible for someone to utter something anti-feminist without getting labeled a male supremacist or similar.

When you do that it means moderates leave the discussion, and the only ones left are extremists with their echo chambers.
