Interesting. Can you expand on this? I don't see "passion" as negative; it seems to just mean that people like their work.
This has nothing to do with gender, but one might prefer something different.
On the negative side think of the meme of enablers trying to downplay a screamer's actions as merely being passionate about his work, or even worse, the department he manages.
That's what I assume it is about anyway.
Honestly it's no different from living on ramen while pouring all your money into a business you're trying to start. It's just more romanticized.
Limited to them its just an unhealthy lifestyle. But if used as some sort of a competitive advantage against those with families and interests beyond work this creates an unfair and awkward work environment.
There are people who look to fill a hole with work when the solution is to find a more balanced life. Workplaces should be alert to and proactively discourage this. Work is primarily about work, professionalism, not a place to socialize. And the 'bro culture', open offices show to an extent some workplaces encouraging it.
