Actually, as a woman who has spent most of her life reading books
written by men, from a male perspective, and hasn't found that
perspective mind-bogglingly alien, I'd say the differences between
men and women are somewhat (or, depending on which depiction we're
actually talking about, often even *hugely*) exaggerated. Neither our
emotions nor our thought processes seem greatly different to me. Of
course, I can only go by what I know from literature, movies,
conversations with members of the opposite sex... but I'd say that's
quite a corpus of evidence.
Sorry, that was OT, I know. Just a personal pet peeve.
