Y-chromosome teaser

This teaser is from page 82 of The Art of Mending by Elizabeth Berg, 2004.
"If there is one thing I can't stand, it's being in dire need of talking to a girlfriend and having her husband answer the phone and say she's not there.  Then you have two problems:  the person you so much need to connect with is not available, and you have to rearrange your emotions to converse with a man.  There is not a thing in the world wrong with Maggie's husband.  Doug is affable and generous and a good cook to boot.  But he is of the Y-chromosome school of emotional receptivity."
