Actually, that's not what I meant. I assumed njrxll would not object to such a situation.
Rather I'm asking you to define "unnecessarily male" more clearly, because...well, what's unnecessary? I couldn't write a story about my life now
without having significant female characters, but that would not always have been the case. I'm sure there are people who could say they don't have much contact with the opposite gender well into their twenties or later and aren't military. (And probably make for interesting psychological studies if nothing else.)
