Is the experience of road cycling comparable to what it's like to being a woman?

I can't remember where I first heard this I think it might have been Emily Chapple? But it went something along the lines of being out on the road, alone, is about as close as a man can get to what it's like being a woman.

That is, any car could take you out and there is not much you could do about it. You get unsolicited verbal abuse. And the roads were not designed with you in mind.

What do people think? Is there anything to this?
