    I don't know what people are talking about when the discussion of gender separation comes up. A while ago, when I was in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, my cousin told me a joke. The high schools had two entrances, one for girls and the other for boys. My cousin said that didn't prevent the girls from getting pregnant. So it seems that even in the enlightened West, even in North America there was gender separation. Other than that, for some reason there is Sudio C, a Health Club for women, and Women's Health Centers where the staff, and the patients are only women. In the States there are Parochial schools of all Religious persuasions that are divided along gender lines. What can I tell ya' In the old days, Jewish family gatherings were divided along gender lines with men in one room, the women in the other, and cousins, boys and girls "mixing" until they, too grew up to join the adults, divided along gender lines. Nobody fussed over it. Today, for some reason . . .
