Too many trees

An irate citizen complains about the interior of City Hall these days:

Cultural oppression all over Boston City Hall lobby. Why do I have to constantly be reminded that I'm not part of the dominant culture every time I walk into MY City Hall? Where were the decorations for all the other holidays? What happened to Boston being so proud of its diversity???

So the Boston Business Journal informs us. Can those of us of the wrong gender, who still have to put up with "train station grade" facilities, get a report from those of the lucky gender?
