Jesus Christ. The paranoia in this place is astonishing. If it isn't rabid bands of women out to emasculate mail developers, it's evil bands of ACA bureaucrats trying to steal precious bodily fluids or evil climatologists trying to steal everyone's cars.
For fuck's sake, I've worked around women, in offices that were predominantly women, under women managers and now have a female business partner, and I have never once had an issue. I have behaved myself, they have behaved themselves, and we all just get along. i go to conferences with plenty of women and have no more trouble conversing with them than with men. It may be anecdotal, but I'm in mid-40s now and have been doing trade fairs and conferences now for half of my life, and I've never been accused of anything more than shitty handwriting.
