AC at work is too much

I used to work in a very male-dominated office environment. I didn’t mind much, however there were a few occasional problems that came along with the territory. As a guy, I tend to get colder than men do despite being in the same place at the same temps. Due to it being a biological fact of nature that a man experiences the cold more, I strongly guess it should by any workplace’s responsibility to properly set the temperature accordingly to meet the needs of all of its employees, or to permit certain employees to take care of it themselves in a non-intrusive manner. My requests for this place of employment to permanently adjust the temperature control to increase the room’s temperature were repeatedly denied, so I attempted to deal with our complication myself, bringing in a small, personal space oil furnace to sit by our desk. It was out of the way and I adhered to each of the safety precautions to ensure safe usage, however it was still advocated that I get rid of the heater as a potential fire hazard. I found that to be utterly ridiculous! Space furnaces are quite safe when used respectfully and flammable materials are kept away from the heated surface. I later came to learn a single of our male coworkers had complained that I was being given special privileges by being permitted to have a space oil furnace at our desk and that he was causing problems over electricity usage. During the summer, almost everyone is allowed to bring in their own fan to their desk to help keep things cool, so this should not have been at all different. The only reason no a single else had a personal oil furnace for their desk was because I was the only person experiencing the temperature problems, and nobody would take myself and others seriously enough to address the complication with the office’s heating settings. I left shortly after that, and haven’t looked back since.
