In his original paper he even linked to scientific studies that backed up his points. I'm sure Google execs have read a lot of popular science books so they know he's at least partially right, and fired him in an attempt to distort reality to be more PC.

The field of evolutionary psychology has been around at least 30 years. They have done many studies and even studied modern hunter-gatherer societies. The theory is that since humans were hunter-gatherers during most of their existence, evolution caused men and women to have specialization for various tasks.

Studies have been done. For example the men went on hunts into the forest and they were really good at finding their way back, whereas women would be more likely to get lost.

On the other hand, women were doing the gathering and foraging, which they could do kids in tow. Studies have shown women are much more observant. One study put men and women in a waiting room to wait for a volunteer study. Turned out the waiting room was the study. When called in, they would ask them what was in the waiting room. Men would say maybe a table and a lamp. Women would say a table, a lamp, a green ashtray, a stuffed rabbit, a painting of a bird, a stack of magazines, etc.

Stuff like that is what this guy was pointing out.
