in otherwirds you are self entitled brat and get upset when you are called out on itI feel that workplace attempts to police speech have had a real chilling effect on relationships in the workplace. On the one hand I recognise the need to conform to legislation around harassment & bullying; that's not up for negotiation. On the other hand, what should be up for negotiation is the censoring of gendered speech or transposing one person's "lived experience" as an offender as a reason to speak on behalf of an entire group of people and change the speech of everybody else. The lack of negotiation or willingness to diverge from a trajectory comes across as very authoritarian and corrosive to any team, department, unit or organisation where that manifests itself.
Those who have the correct codes can control an organisation no matter their status. That's not right. It creates a barrier to team cohesion which in turn degrades moral & capability. Come conversations & bad thinks that ordinarily be done more openly and then cleansed by daylight by peers are now done away from scrutiny because of the threat and end up not being challenged or evolving at all.
BTW, all this is my lived experience so there is no data to go along with.
