I can usually appreciate someone who stands up for an unpopular opinion.  However, the parsing of his statements left me fairly sure the post was either an AI's attempt at trolling, substance abuse, mental health issues, or a stroke.

Not an excuse. I work in the environmental field, which is full of introverted people because taking a hike in the woods is a great way for an introvert to destress from being around people.

You don't see the misogyny and general arsehole behavior in my field.

"Your field" doesn't have new releases of marquee-level intellectual property that millions of fans are waiting with bated breath to experience.    That sort of "cultural importance" can have an effect on a person's impression of their influence on society.

Not to mention the whole brogrammer paradigm shift away from something that nerds did to something that is now the province of alpha-jocks.

Oh, good. That post left me wondering if there was an incorrect way to smell toast.

A friend of mine did some contract work for some brogrammers once.  He made a blood oath never to do so again.

From my understanding, these videos were done before his current job and his employer was aware of them when they hired him, or at least while he was working on the project. With that context in mind, I'm not too sure how to feel about this. It would be one thing if he produced this videos while working for the company, but factoring in those two aspects? Is the solution to ensure he is blacklisted from every employer for the rest of his life until he dies homeless on the street?

I swear I'm not trying to proclaim "cancel culture," but unless I'm mistaken about the timeline and circumstances (please correct me if I am), I'm not too sure the best way forward here. I guess if I were his boss I might ask him to remove the videos and issue an apology, and if refused then force him to resign or be terminated, maybe schedule some sensitivity training as well. But there should be some middle ground between allowing racists and bigots free reign without consequence for their words and terminating someone for what they did years before they ever worked at your company.
