However, I find it very easy to imagine that there are a great many comedy writers (regardless of gender) who would object to having one or more other writers (regardless of gender or any other characteristic) foisted upon them with the threat that they either work with the new person/people or they don't work at all.
I don't think anyone's suggesting a random writer would be 'foisted' upon anyone -that's not really how writing partnerships work. It would be more a case of seeking out women writers whose work is good (and if you genuinely know no good ones that's fine, get a friend to recommend some) and testing the waters to see if you work well together. If it's not working out then abandon, try again.
If all of this seems like too much work, or you're unable to find any writer you'd be able to work with without feeling like your career is under 'threat' then maybe you just have to accept that writing partnerships aren't for you. Don't worry your pretty little head about it! (This last sentence is an example of irony, acceptable in the context of the conversation, etc)
