A good leader never uses gender or sexuality to motivate in business. If a person is a spokesperson for equality in business using gender negative stereotypes actually weakens the position of the sales/spokes person.

As for the three decades of research, was the research evenly balanced between both sexes and has both sexes received the equal training and support for positive and non toxic team building and leadership?

This position was acceptable in the 80s, 90s and pre 2008, but now it is a bit dated.

I am sorry your work environment it not conducive to your personal needs, but they have never been conducive to men ever. Thr grass may look greener on the male side of the work house, but I can tell you it is green painted gravel, stone and broken and jagged cement, not the lush, plush, and sweet smelling grass or $$$.

Men have had to defend from even worse amongst themselves, so one has to ask if they are going to ask for a fight to the death, what positive thing are they going to get for them and not you or the gender. Business is about contract and shared responsibility and reward when managing risk. Your article assumes a person helping takes all the risks and responsibility of being a man and a woman and is forced to share the reward equally.

That last paragraph is obviously highly toxic, but that is what you are asking without realizing it.
