Id be pleased to watch them slowly and painfully die.

It's a Goldie Locks thing in my perspective. I'm basing it partly on an anecdote from my wife but it's hardly like I haven't heard this story before. One of her workers doesn't like the other because she wears too much make-up to work. The other doesn't like her because she wears too little. One doesn't like the other because she's old and slow. The other doesn't like one because she's too young and eager. And all of them are constantly challenging my wife's position as leader of that team -- if she's too strict she's too bossy, if she's not enough then everyone does sloppy work. My wife is a very decent boss even if she's a bit on the kind and lenient side. I've lead teams before (mostly male -- engineering) and her stories are much worse than mine.
In my experience, all you have to do with a male-dominated team is communicate your vision and goal. That is typically sufficient to unite the team. If they have differences, you reiterate your vision and goal, and the strength of that vision will make them converge. Every now and then you get an unruly one and you have to summon a bossy side to get them in line. But with my wife, it's like that isn't enough -- she has to play glorified babysitter. Almost all are unruly and find endless things to complain about. Goldie Locks. It's never just right, and the goal isn't sufficient to unite the team.
And the gossip... don't get me started on the gossip. I get legit cranky listening to my wife about her workplace gossip -- about her and other people. Bunch of babies. They segregate based on their differences instead of resolving them. It's a nightmare.
Somebody did a similar study in my country and male-only fields were the ones where people get harassed most
