I find that all/mostly female work environments can be either fantastic or horrific. I really prefer ones with a strong male presence to balance that dynamic. And I like men.
i like men, too. i have to admit, many women fit the stereotype, i just don't think it *has* to be that way, or that i'm somehow less feminine because i don't (which is what's implied when people argue that it's biologically driven).
for a few years i worked as a volunteer in a food cooperative. we had a back playroom for the kids and most of the customers thought the arrangement was pretty awesome. older kids could come up and help or do their own thing. but the whole thing was kind of ruined by parents whose kids run wild with a lack of supervision: toys in the playroom are destroyed within a matter of a few days of arrival, kids sometimes run wild throughout the store and knock stuff of of shelving, things like that. plus there were a few customers who'd get really annoyed by the mere presence of children and complain that we needed to act like a normal store. it would've been nice to continue working there if it wasn't for the few ruining it for the whole. in exchange for our time, we got to be a part of a working community, teach our children about public behavior and service, and get deep discounts on groceries.
