What Women Talk About

"It was not by design," posts Paul Turner/The Slice. "But the S-R newsroom seating chart has a few pockets of gender clustering. I happen to sit along a fault line between a male-centric area and an all-female grouping. Now people who work for newspapers tend to have a variety of interests. So I'm not about to suggest that the conversations one hears typically break down along gender stereotypes. It's 2013. But just a few minutes ago, I listened to three or four women talking about their hair-washing regimens. You know, how often, how long it takes, et cetera. It was mildly interesting, I have to admit." More here.

Question: Would you rather hear men talk about sports or women talk about their hair-washing regimens?
