Difficult to know the causality

Trans people are nearly twice as likely to be involved in conflict at work than heterosexuals, a study has found.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) said firms should make sure their work culture is inclusive, with zero tolerance of bullying and harassment.

Their call comes following a study published by the organisation showing that LGBT+ workers experience higher levels of conflict, lower levels of psychological safety and lower job satisfaction.

Its study indicated that two out of five were involved in a work-based conflict in the past year, rising to 55 per cent among trans workers, compared with 29 per cent of heterosexual employees.

Melanie Green, research adviser for the CIPD, the professional body for human resources, said: “Our research suggests that many LGB+ and trans workers don’t feel safe to express themselves and be accepted at work.

Mornin’ Queerboy” would at least be impolite and is probably not conducive to creating a productive workspace.

“I’ve been mispronouned now fire everyone” is also probably not conducive to a productive workspace.

Before we assume that this work-based conflict is the fault of the cis and het structuralism of society we do in fact need to know which sort of conflict we’re talking about here….

  1. Well, yes. When the figures show 55% trannies against 29% hets, one does wonder who is the most quarrelsome.

    Indeed I’d imagine that the heterosexuals wouldn’t feel safe expressing themselves to Melanie Green, let alone at work.

  2. Narcissistic mentalists involved in more aggro? Hardly a surprise. I bet they love it most of the time. Especially if the conflict offers the chance to make a woman uncomfortable.

    I wonder how much of this is old dogs not being able to learn new tricks?

    If I was asked to refer to someone by a weird pronoun I would at least make an effort, but I’m under no illusion that something would slip out and the one thing we’ve learned from the identity politics wars is there’s no forgiveness or redemption.

  4. You use a pronoun when referring in the third person – which by definition is when that person is not present. HTF can somebody get upset by something other people say in their absence.

    If somebody wants to specify how they *address* them, then I will, Dr Peterson, but that’s not pronouns.

  5. 55% of trannies are just attention-seeking narcissists demanding that everyone treat them like a special snowflake because they’ve decided to wear a dress to work. 45% have some kind of genuine problem and just keep their heads down and continue to work productively. Sounds about right.

  6. jgh: You use a pronoun when referring in the third person

    That first word there, that’s a pronoun in the 2nd person!

  7. Depends on the individual more than anything else. Having a workplace nickname like “specky four eyes” or “pork ‘n’ cheese” is water off a duck’s back for some people, but deeply painful for others. The best thing is just to embrace the label, the same way LGBTs have taken back the word “queer”.

  8. I would have thought the trannies would feel positive about fitting in so well, attracting as they do the same sort of jibes directed at black, Asian, Irish and Scots colleagues. Would be sad if they were ignored.

    I use that comment amongst friends too. Gotta have a sense of humour though so those ‘challenged’ people should be avoided when happy, smiling or having fun.

  10. Trans people are nearly twice as likely to be involved in conflict at work than heterosexuals

    I’m surprised it’s only nearly twice tbf, but that’s probably because so many trannies make themselves unemployable.

    MC is correct of course (narcissistic rage seems to be the default setting for a lot of gendergoblins). Transgenderism is fundamentally antisocial and no amount of “tolerance” or correct pronoun usage will fix it – probably just makes it worse through narcissistic supply.

  11. They don’t want to fit in; that’s why they’re trans, although I grant there are a few who just try to slip under the radar.

  12. Quite the assumption there that the reason why trannies are more likely to be involved in conflicts is because they are victims of harassment rather than that they are unhinged individuals.

  13. If you are disposed to argue with nature, with reality, then you will argue with your colleagues. I suspect there is a massive amount of anger simmering in those who want to mutilate their own genitals. It’s like those losers who have a massive tattoo of a spider or something equally appealing on their face. It’s self-harm in its most basic form.

  14. It’s probably neither but based around privilege.

    The ABCDEF…. err. person is possibly a useless woke ass about everything and people resent having to pick up behind them and pander to their every whim knowing that any negative comment will get them fired no matter how good they are at their job and the ABCDEF… isn’t.

    English has inherited our Germanic cases for pronouns, but the only gendered ones are third person singular (I’m sure there must be a reason for this). You must have much more fun talking to trannies in German – are you allowed to use neuter?
