This isn't a question of diabetes. This isn't a question such as with women's sports.

This is the case of a city "for women" being a nice, happy, comfortable, safe, city designed around roaming around (see, shopping), child-care, chore-doing, etc. It's a case of making a park to "protect" women from men by dividing areas into sections so that women don't have to compete for space.

If it were something around the lines of "this city is ". No, honestly, I can't think of a single way you can design a city "for women" and not come off as a bit stupid while doing so.

I feel like I am watching that stupid spirit science series "feminine energies are diverse, they seek multiple paths" and "male energies are like a tank, taking the direct route".

And, yeah, that is true, to an extent. Women are better at multitasking and similar where-as men are much more "focused". However, you can't go off that and try to design an entire city around it.

Imagine a city "for men" by the same ideals. Where human interaction is reduced to a minimum, home and work are placed near each other to reduce commute times and encourage productivity, and with football parks on every corner.

It's bullshit.
