I understand your intention, but I would urge you to change your mindset to focus less on stereotypes and more on behavior.
I often find this kind of study/summary to be of the greatest irony.
Person complains men are insensitive or make assumptions about women, which is a great irony because that just making an insensitive assumptions about men.
Let me try another example.
You are trying to point out problems within a group. Yet, you have chosen the word 'male' to represent this group.
Suppose we wish to talk about problems in urban Detroit (gangs, single motherhood...)
Would you state the problem in any way as:
Black people are prone to violence and broken families?
No, because that would be so insensitive. You'd probably call that person a bigot.
You'd have to make it more specific. People in poverty, certain urban centers, certain historical background...
I was born in Apartheid South Africa. I know a little more about racial grouping. I also see the reverse now where the groupings and power plays have shifted. It's always tempting, but if you want to be better than a bigot, you have to check yourself and not fall into 'my tribe' thinking.
Now this is always a tricky area as how do you talk about systemic problems without 'grouping' people.
Well as I say, take two minutes and make sure you've tried your best to narrow your group as much as possible. You might not get it perfect, but at least you made the effort and can offend fewer people AND be more accurate.
It's almost pointless to talk about 'black' people as that is such a large group. Neil Degrass Tyson is black. Condoleeza Rice is black. One of the best IOS programmers I know is black. These people bare no resemblance to the image people have when they talk about 'black problems' perpetuated by both bigots and SJW. There are upscale blacks. There are ghetto blacks and every other subgrouping in between.
It's just as pointless to talk about 'white' people. There are rich white folk and downright poor ghetto white folks. You can for example talk about 'white privilege' but you better be careful about it. Tell some poor white kid from a broken home that he has 'white privilege'. Do you have any idea how harmful that is to that person?
Now ponder your choice of groups. You chose to group humans into two of the biggest groups possible. Male and Female.
And you make grand stereotypes about both, lumping in everyone. You insult anyone who identifies with either being male or female. You insult the female who prefers direct talk or believes she should fight the fight. You insult the male who prefers social grace.
Did it ever occur to you that many men get turned off by poor social behavior?
Perhaps the issue is less that of men vs women, but of people who lack social grace.
I would also imagine with all the tools available in the open source world, it might be interesting to find out why other open source cultures haven't developed. Or maybe they have? I haven't studied it. I'm generally just a deep user, as opposed to an active contributor, but I generally find people quite helpful. There are some assholes, but I've also had some very good conversations and help from a lot of people. Every open source project is started by someone.
Basically, take two minutes.
Check your groupings.
Even if you go in depth with nuance in the research, check your summary. Just do the black test. Change the 'bad' group to 'black' and see how it reads.
How does this read to you Bruce:
How did we ever get a community where a vocal minority of males behave in the most boorish, misogynistic, objectifying manner toward women?
How did we ever get a community where a vocal minority of blacks behave in the most boorish, misogynistic, objectifying manner toward women?
Even masked with the words minority, it still stings doesn't it? No matter how your phrase it, it stings a little doesn't it.
So for someone complaining about insensitive men ... you might want to check yourself.
