I've stayed out of this one until now, but the whole argument seems
pointless to me. Regardless of what you are writing, there are bound to
be challenges: difficulties with access, knowledge of the topic to be
learned, language issues to be addressed and so on. Since we each bring to
the task only the experiences and knowledge we already have, each faces unique
problems--and personal viewpoints relative to them. "My job is really
tough" is true for most of us in one aspect or another.

IMHP, what counts most is showing consideration for the truth of this for
our fellow writers, regardless of what they are writing. And recognizing
that what may be easier for us may not be easy for someone else because
their experience has given them a different set of knowledge parameters.

Practice makes perfect--or perfectly awful.
It depends on what you practice.
