That's a difficult question. In my office, it tends to be the women who have the most issues with being criticized by another woman. I've had my work critiqued on multiple occasions by female coworkers, both my equals and superiors, and I didn't take it personally or become defensive. Now, I can only speak for myself, rather than my entire gender (which the author of the article has done), and I am sure there are men who have issues with it. In regards to the article, what's the solution? The author lists several problems plaguing the industry, but offers no concrete resolution. I have an issue with that. If you are going to call out an issue, you need to also come prepared with a way to fix it. If you don't, no one will ever take you seriously.

First, using the word "segregated" is a bit too strong in this case. Yes, it still means separation, but for many, it carries a different history. That being said, I don't agree with their policy on separation by gender. I think it's kind of pointless in an eSports format, and I'm glad someone is finally drawing attention to it. However, the vitriol and excessive anger is highly inappropriate, and it makes me disappointed in people like Wil Wheaton and others who have been up in arms about a policy that was put in place several YEARS ago. Where was the anger then? Where was the eSports community's rage then? Chess is still separated this way. Where's the anger? Yes, it's not equal. Yes, it should change. The gnashing of teeth and the pounding of fists needs to stop though. It's a little late to become that pissed off.

Make headway at work. Continue to let things deteriorate at home.
