If a man speaks in a forest and there is no woman around to hear him is he still wrong?

The answer entirely depends on whether or not the speaker in question spoke a factual or a nonfactual comment. Or if he spoke loudly enough for his voice to be carried to an object which would reverberate his sound-waves and they echoed so that the woman in question could hear what was being said.

Assuming the woman is actually listening. Research shows the intersection of activities such that "Man Talks" and "Woman Listens" is too insignificant to be of concern.
