Who are you talking to lol because none of these are true about Orthodox Jews! She really got us right in the article!
I can totally understand why you would think that this blessing is offensive, but there’s an explanation. Men are required (women optional) to perform “time-bound mitzvot” like praying 3xaday in the synagogue starting VERY early in the morning, studyingalot of torah, etc. This blessing is for men to acknowledge that even though their commandments are tough sometimes to do every day, they are not resentful, but grateful for the challenge to bring themselves closer to Hashem (whereas women may not need as much help :)
