Phyllis McGinley on Gossip

"Of course we women gossip on occasion. But our appetite for it is not as avid as a man's.* It is in the boys' gyms, the college fraternity houses, the club locker rooms, the paneled offices of business that gossip reaches its luxuriant flower." 

- Phyllis McGinley [quoted here]

As I said yesterday, this is her thought about men, not mine.  I am still undecided about the relationship and ratio between men and women and gossip.
