I agree, this is a story of personal experience from this woman. Her personal experience has led her to believe that women are a hindrance or in the very least a nuisance in the workplace. This is her own "truth" as you put it, and I fully believe that in her experience, a greater population of women subordinates than men were unfit for their roll.
The problem comes when this article is spread as a truth about
and not just about
. It leads people without personal experience to expect a disparity in performance between genders. Stories and beliefs like these are what should be the real target of feminists (when I say feminists I am referring to
feminists and not the sjw crowd), because these are where the roots of sexism are planted.
As a separate note, that I think is
related; imagine a study that finds that high stress can be linked to problems during pregnancy. Based on the results of that study, would it be more beneficial for America as a nation to limit the amount of stress women can undergo by removing them from high stress jobs?
The point is that it's important to seek truth and understanding, but it is equally as important to understand the implications of spreading
truths. In this case, I assert that spreading the ideology that woman disturb the workplace is detrimental to furthering America potential.
I most certainly agree with you on this. I subscribe heavily to egalitarian beliefs, where I just see people as human and judge them solely on the merits of their actions or thoughts.
That said my only problem with dismissing articles like this is that they are pointing out something that needs to be addressed on a wider scale, and that is why these stereotypes come to be. Now of course I have previously mentioned I know female workers who do not fit this unproductive model the articles portrayed, and certainly its easy to say that we cannot say all women are bad in a workplace environment. Plenty of examples will speak to the contrary.
The issue is that these stories and examples of unproductive workers are not chance occurrences, and they are in fact, outnumbering our examples of prime workers. The very reason these issues come about is likely linked to physiological and social causes. I cannot say for certain on case to case bases. Women and men do operate differently. It's just nature. Now we cannot blame them all for this, however the majority of workers cannot just allow this to happen because it's more natural for females to act in ways that are less productive and more prone to start divisions in the workplace. So the issue at hand is why they tend to be unproductive so frequently and how we can get this issue to be mitigated. There should never be an excuse based on gender (in my eyes) to consistently act in negative ways (concerning productivity and efficiency/cohesion). It is not fair or right. Consistently is key point there, as things such as pregnancy and hormonal issues are temporary influences that are usually compensated for with maternity leave and what not. And as many individuals highlight, women can most certainly work in productive and non-petty ways with other people. That kind of behavior should be encouraged, the opposite of course should be discouraged. These kinds of articles may skew perceptions, but they also partially serve as a means to promote that encouragement and discouragement that I spoke on.
That is at least something to think on, or rather it's an alternative perspective on the issue at hand.
On an unrelated note, I much prefer egalitarians to feminists because feminism, by it's definitions and stances, allowed things like SJWs to happen and thrive. It, in its effort to create equality, had to do so by isolating females (thus the phrase feminism), and in doing so sowed the seeds of polarity. The noble pursuits of those who just wanted equality, were unfortunately ruined by the tools the methodology allowed. Simply putting humanity as the guideline, and the goal towards making all humans treated fairly and equally, would have had far less implications in how the ideology was received and flourished. But alas it is less catchy and less directive and so it wasn't exactly turned into a big movement. Shame really.
Kudos to you for being able to see both sides here. Its refreshing to see on this website. I hope you don't get thumbed down to oblivion.
I'm a woman and I've worked in both male and female dominated work places. There is no doubt a higher frequency of gossip between female employees but I have had pleenty of male coworkers and bosses who create an equal amount of drama and hostility. In my experience women get upset more often but about more trivial things, while men do less frequently but about more serious issues of the work place that have bigger consequences. Which really is no better IMO. There will always be bad eggs in every company, regardless of gender.

Do Robots have feelings?
I knew I wasn't not the only one who was like this, but being reminded of that fills me with certain kind of sadness that is also quite comforting.
Knowing ultimately I'm not alone in this kind of struggle does bring me a quite a bit of comfort, but sadness because being like this is not something I want anyone else to suffer with and for that I'm both sorry and thankful to you.
