I just love, love, love it when someone can sum up millions of clumsy words of mine into something short, to the point, and actually pleasant to read 🙂
Move over, queer eye for the straight guy.
I’ve noticed, over the years, that I seem to be able to explain men to women and women to men to some extent. I don’t think it’s necessarily a butch, or even a queer thing, but “inclusive of all humans’ eye for the gender divide” just doesn’t make for a catchy title.

Women – men don’t read subtlety the way you do. Clear requests work better than dropping hints.
