Perhaps, statistically, women are more likely to drink white wine than men are.
Waiters of the world: this does not allow you to ask, condescendingly, if one of the ladies would like to taste the white. They won't give you the stink-eye, because they have manners, but you deserve it.
We are not doomed as a sex to drinking saccharine swill. We are perfectly capable of drinking red wine, and of selecting the proper wine for our dinners. Don't you dare patronize us.
