In an American office, some women are a little chilly. For first world radical feminists, the latter issue takes precedence, especially in the scorching summer heat.
    Yesterday, Atlantic staff writer Taylor Lorenz tweeted that air-conditioning is “unhealthy, bad, miserable, and sexist,” bringing attention to a feminist movement against air-conditioning. That’s right, a miraculous wonder of technology that allows people to settle in sweltering climates is now “an engine of the patriarchy.”
    And a/cs remove moisture from the air so people, especially women, have to buy moisturizes manufactured by male-dominated labs.
    For employers, these findings mean that by insisting on the subzero fridges you call cubicles, not only are you making half your employees miserable, you are also sacrificing productivity.
    And the piece goes on and on in a like manner @ https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/cu...tioning-sexist
    From your link:

    They want men to "Roast" apparently. FWIW: My preferred temperature is 68F/20C.

    A survey from Roast found that the differences in thermal comfort between female and male staffers were insignificant.
    Make America Greater. Nix the "again", because America was always great.

    Even with no men, women will battle over the thermometer. When I was in charge of records almost all of the employees were women. They would reset the thermostat ten times a day with the "I'm freeing" clique battling the "I'm burning up" clique. I finally gave up and had a solid metal box mounted over the thermostat. Both cliques hated me but the bickering shifted to another topic.
