Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think women are more aware of male culture than vice versa; they have to be because it is the default cultural space of shared interactions. Men deal with everybody on their terms, but women have to learn to deal with men on men's terms too.

At least men know they don't understand female culture, most of them wouldn't ever have experienced it. But no man would pretend to say "I understand women". Unfortunately their greater familiarity with the surface aspects of male culture persuades some women they have insight into its depths. And that leads to some marvellously wrong headed presumptions

I'd love to read that as a diary!
