As a little note, this idea that all and every area of life should be accessible to women, without hurting sensibilities, does mean that we’re now scouring life of any places where men can be excessively – and objectionably – male.

A world in which that male behaviour is packed off into particular corners, to be unleashed if necessary and then recaged, sounds to me better than one in which the attempt is made to abolish it.
Of course, we also know how to do that – called manners.
