    Huhrumph! The grunt is very useful and versatile. It can express, pain, pleasure, understanding, aggravation, and agreement among other things.

    Mentioning this fact, does it count as gossip?

    Some places believe in enforcing policies against harassment and discrimination. Where are you from?

    But at business meetings, which is what the guy was remarking on, it is well known that women speak far less than their male peers. I've observed this myself during a large part of my working life. We even had training on running meetings so that those who tend not to speak up have a chance to put their views on the table, to ensure that valuable inputs are not missed or drowned out by the macho posturing that goes on.

    So it's a good job this senile old idiot has been replaced. :D

    Actually at business meetings that is exactly what happens. The men, or some of them, typically spend their time contesting for the alpha male spot. And the women, who very often have insightful contributions to make, have difficulty getting a word in edgeways, unless there is a chair who makes sure they get heard. Sometimes there will also be quiet men whose views are worth listening to as well, of course. But it tends to be the men that are the noisy ones.
