Women and wood

Something came to my attention recently, and at the risk of war, I would
like to share.

I bought a new/old home in August. It is a neo-F.L. Wright-Usonian home,
built in 1957, and designed by a student of F.L.Wright. All stone, wood,
and glass; and angles. (There is no Tupperware in it). Many friends are
very impressed with the home. However, one women said, -This is a man's
house; women don't like this kind of house.

Trying not to be defensive, I asked, Why not?

Because, she said, Its all stone, wood, and glass. Women like plaster,
paint, and wallpaper.
