Boys and Girls
My (female) AD and I are freelancing at the moment, so we're coming into contact with a lot more other teams than we normally would.
On Monday, two new teams started at the agency we're with right now. And both of them are also, for want of a better term, co-ed (I thought about "transgendered", but that seems a little ambiguous).
I hadn't realised until they turned up how rare that was. I mean, I'd noticed that by far the majority of teams consist of two blokes, but it hadn't occurred to me that most of the rest of them comprise two girls.
In fact until Monday, I'd only ever met one other girl-guy team.
Why is that? Is it a social thing - guys just like hanging out with guys better? Or is it something about the male and female minds not generally gelling well together?
What do you think?
