Dazed and confused
I don't hang out with groups of girls. Husband and I are best mates and do everything together. Some people might not agree to that but it has worked for a quarter f a century for us and we are going strong.
So the OP seems alien to me. I don't know situations like that apart from people I would normally not hang out with [work colleagues for example]. This makes me think that the women or men OP talks about are not people I would normally associate with. They exist, oh I know they do, but it is almost as if in those circles jokes are made to the expense of the opposite sex because it seems expected. I hate that.
I guess this secrecy not to let a male in when talking women's stuff could also stem from the fact that a lot of women are still treated different from men or can't say what they like to say at home. Maybe they have an angry partner that doesn't let them.
