Ok, all you men out there, how many of you think the following?
(i)women pee backwards
(ii)women use sanitary napkins because they don't have bladder control
(iii)the unnatural sheen on Padma Laksmi's cheeks is imparted not by make-up, but by liberal use of moisturiser(!)? 
All this from A, a friend who has more close female friends than male. If his perception is so warped (although to me it sounds plain stupid- is that unfair?), what about the rest?
 This is interesting. A was most upset when informed that Padma cakes her face with make-up. He refused to believe us (before coming up with the moisturiser explanation). So men don't like the idea of women wearing make-up, even while being unable to tell the difference between a heavily made-up face from one that's devoid of any paint? Subliminially do they prefer a made-up face? Probably if a lot of lipstick is involved. Yes? No?
