I suspect the environment is plenty welcoming, I haven’t seen anything to convince me otherwise.

Or just colour you “troll”! You “suspect the environment is plenty welcoming”???? Have you been hiding under a rock? Your second paragraph suggests you can’t do much more than project your own bias!

I regularly see behaviour similar to (though less intense than) that described — and that’s in groups of “sensitive new-age guys” who think they’re part of the solution. I have NO trouble imagining exactly the described behaviour in less supportive groups.
