Well, thinking about it seems like it might not be different for men, too. But if you are a woman, by default people will take you lightly. More intelligent and suave bigots can hide it slightly better. So be careful as you choose your friends, colleagues and partners.
One does accept rules and boundaries. But you choose which, you choose when, and you choose why. Choose wisely.
More importantly, be careful as you choose who to be. Remember, you can escape from all others but not from your self!
