Do they? My sister swears so. I have only had my set for a couple of months and haven't had any ladies over (I'll leave the chiding to others . I did have a group of friends over the other week and the ladies didn't say much although no outright disapproval was voiced at my HT. Heck, we have so many cool, HT minded women on this forum that it almost seems kinda strange to me that some women may be "offended" (my sisters words) by the HT. Perhaps some find it a irresponsible use of money (I won't go there....) - especially considering that generally I don't have any furniture to speak of. What do you all think?. Would I be foolish to think that *most* women would be in approval of the HT?. Give me your thoughts.... Michael.
