Oh no! White men are being discriminated against in silicon valley?

Poor, poor conservative patriarchs. Their lives are a living hell:

The author of a controversial memo that sparked debates about gender and diversity at Google sued his former employer on Monday, alleging that the company discriminates against politically conservative white men.

James Damore, who was fired in August for internally circulating a manifesto that argued Google’s gender pay gap was the result of genetic inferiority, said in a lawsuit filed in Santa Clara Superior Court that the search giant “singled out, mistreated, and systematically punished and terminated” employees that deviated from the company’s view on diversity. Damore and a second plaintiff, David Gudeman, another former Google engineer, are seeking class-action status for anyone that identifies as conservative, Caucasian, or male.

Get this:
The men are being represented by Harmeet K. Dhillon, the Republican National Committee’s committeewoman for California.

If you doubted the GOP has taken sides on the issue of women's equality, this should clear that up.
