Phone-ins totally dominated by men......any ideas why?

Most radio phone-in discussions (notably LBC) are overwhelmingly swamped by men. And I've often idly wondered just why. Is it:

A. They have a compulsion to share passionate opinions about matters dear to themselves with the rest of the world?

B.They love the sound of their own voice and want others to love it too.

C. They've bored their partners who have automatically switch off.

D. They've bored everyone in the pub who have also automatically switched off.

E. They have far, far too much time on their hands due to their "allergic" reaction to housework?

F: They retired and realised life after paid employment ain't the Shangri-La they expected it to be?

All of the above
And a few table thumpers 😄

The phone desk people let them through? I have spoken once on LBC, and since then my phone has been blocked
. Every time I call, it just cuts off after the first few rings.
I don't know why, Shelagh Fogarty found what I said very interesting.
