Unenlightened person (UP):   As a favour, can you give my friend, the IT man, feedback on the website we’re developing?

Wendy: I can talk to him about what’s possible and provide something even if its just first impressions

UP: Oh* thank you he’ll be so pleased.

Wendy: no problem

UP: …especially since you are a woman…

Wendy: Oh**…     …why?   (demonstrating outstanding facial muscle, vocal tone  and body posture control)

UP: He normally only gets feedback from men

Shall I tell the IT guy that the website lacks sufficient:

  • PINK?  
  • flowers in the design?
  • promises of chocolate  in error messages?
  • links to bargain shoe-purchase websites?
  • links to sign-up for escort agency work  (and I don’t mean the classic Ford car)?

HahahahHAhaHAHAHahahahaha (the sound of manic laughing fading into the distance)

 

 

Perhaps not.   I’ll stick with giving useful advice which, you will be shocked to discover,    has sod-all to do with my being biologically female.

 

 

 * Signifying surprise that I didn’t start negotiating a fee

 

** Signifying an fake-innocent lake of understanding of why advice for this website might be different based on gender over website design knowledge and skills
