To state some background: I recently moved internally in the company I work for. I've been in this team for two weeks now and everything was fine until yesterday. A female co-worker, let's call her Anna, posted in the intranet that she dislikes the usage of the word "man-day" because she excludes herself.
I just commented:
And then the next one is discriminated because he does not identify himself as a person. I find this gender mania just massively annoying and I wonder sometimes why you always want to see a discrimination of your own sex in everything. I can not understand it, to be honest
For me, this was just a different opinion because my point of view is that I don't care about someone's gender at all. However, in the daily (working as a developer in a SCRUM team) it was planned that I should pair with her that day what she then refused due to my comment.
I cannot understand it because my opinion and the work is something different. Did I really do something wrong here?
