I've clearly violated some kind of unwritten rules, but I don't think 
that it is bad to actually say, that it would be nice to write them, so 
this will not happen to people, that have no idea that there are such 
rules and feels and what not.

Yes, I definitely can.

There were no women decades before I even got here, so please, just stop 
blaming me.

And we will, more and more, with the spread of the Self. This is exactly 
what I was talking about in the blog - you have to make the context 
explicit, or people will violate it and act differently than you expect.
