Spend some time talking with male nurses about that goes on in their environments and you will hear horror stories every bit as ugly.
This is a good point. As a man who works in an environment where women are a substantial majority, I can confirm that women can and do say things that make men uncomfortable. The kinds of sexual discussions men and women tend to get involved with are different, but women's discussions can be just as off putting to men as the other way round. And, of course, if it's a group of women making sexual comments that make their male coworkers sufficiently uncomfortable, that's just as much sexual harassment as if it were the other way around.
