Sitting in an institution for females only, Northwest of Philadelphia, PA, I have an opportunity to reflect on gender relations. I have never had the experience of being such a minority in the gender sense. Students here tend to look at me differently than females would look at me on a co-ed campus. Many of the girls--young women, pardon me--are sort of bashful. Others seem hostile. Just this morning, I exchanged smiles with the first overtly friendly individual. I am glad that I am not a graduate student at an all-women's college, to be quite honest. That is all for now. I will be in Japan on September 18th, and hope to start blogging soon after.
