I never really gave this any thought because I am so rarely in situations where there are all women and one man. So, it is funny to learn your POV. On the flip side, I have very often been the only girl in a room of boys, pretty much my entire career as well as among customers/clients (except in my most recent incarnation), and that scene is much more perilous than you being shoved aside by a soccer mom reaching for kale.

A solo woman surrounded by men can go one of a few ways: she can be treated with condescending deference (which isn't the end of the world); she can be ignored; she can be hassled, or she may hold her own and be treated as an equal.

I like the invention of the couch part.


i was fortunate, Loretta, when i was the only girl/woman it was at the University of Virginia where all the boys were "gentlemen" / they were, indeed, almost courtly / oh well it was the 50.s / i still got knocked up and had to get married / yes he was a Southern Gentleman / as for the CSA the one i belong to has all shares divvied up in advance and thus one does not have to negotiate / my world is a smaller world
