It's neither stiff or difficult if you apply even force all around the ring. You will be surprised how easily it unscrews.

Hold the camera with one hand.
Present the lens, with ring attached, to your other hand (to a flat dry palm).
Twist the camera.
Do not pinch any part of the ring with fingers.
Allow the friction of your dry flat palm to exert its force against the whole ring.
It will unscrew, with the bare minimum of applied force.

It isn't a Fuji quirk., or a design flaw; it's physics.

Why is it so hard to understand that Fuji designed the lens cap as a tool to remove the ring?

Perhaps some do not want to admit they have lost he lens cap.
