Don't jump to conclusions please. Sexism in the workplace is an insidious and pervasive problem. But suggesting that the Patriarchy is trying to hide the problem by "washing away gender bias" is ludicrous. Stack Exchange has a policy of editing questions, sometimes drastically, to focus them on a core question, clean up the language and cut out fluff. The OP identifying the gender of the people involved and even her mention of his comment on wishing "there were more women in this industry" is not at all an indicator that there's a gender issue at play.
There is no reason to believe that the gender of the individuals involved contributed to the problem or is in any way relevant for potential answers.
As BlueRaja says, including gender, especially so prominently in the title (which I've since edited again), risks making it a red herring.
If sexism is truly relevant, then that should be clarified in the comments. The OP can provide more detail and that can then be worked into the post. In the absence of evidence that gender was really important for the question, these edits are perfectly fine because they make the post easier to read and cut out elements of the story that aren't truly relevant to the situation. These edits should be made quickly and drastically to ensure that we don't leave poorly formatted or ill-defined posts on the site. As expected this ended up on HNQ and I would much rather see a polished question with a clear scope there instead of yet another poorly written, unedited mess that every answerer interprets differently.
All this in mind, I've reverted JakeGould's edit. And please remember that the OP is a woman or female but she's not "a female".
The OP has been active on the site but has so far not truly commented on whether sexism is at play here. The fact that she actually uses "lol" in her comments alone is enough to assume that her word choices in the original version of the question are not well thought out and should not be taken as gospel that she feels discriminated against. Besides that the only gender-related comment I've found by the OP is here:
When a man is rude to a woman of course she will think it has to do
with gender especially if it's an irrational reason to be rude.
People are rude. Sometimes irationally so. To ascribe sexism to a person just because he has a short fuse or is growing annoyed by a junior hire's constant questions interrupting him is downright foolish. Given that the OP has no actual sexist remarks to reproduce and has, in fact, not made any allegations of sexism in her post, I'm going to assume that sexism is not a factor here.
The OP has just updated the question herself to remove all references to male/female from the title and added an edit to explain that gender bias was not part of the issue. Given that she accepted an answer and took the time to return to the question with an edit I'm assuming that she didn't feel "disheartened" by our supposedly callous removal of gender from the question, but I can only imagine what she must think of the resulting edit war and bickering on meta.
