Assumptions

I loath it when people make assumptions about me based on what they think they know.

Example
I'm currently relying on agency work for my employment, and got a call today telling me I've got work tonight. The problem? I got told "it's ok, it's all women so you'll get on fine there." Now excuse me but... WHY will I get on ok there just because it's "all women there"? What does being in a place that is "all women there" offer me that working anywhere else won't? And wtf should I be impressed that "it's all women" there when actually NO, I DON'T consider myself to be "a woman"? I'm medically female, not "a woman", and I don't appreciate being called one, so please don't.
