Men and women can't be friends.

Me neither. Maybe you should bring that up in a thread where someone said that.

Why would you be friends with women if you are already married?

Yup. Can't be friendly as you would the male associates or it's harassment ('cause we shit-talk each other).

Can't ignore them because then it's discrimination.

If your email actually warrants more than a couple of paragraphs then you need to open with some comment like please read this entire thing, this pertains to you, you freaking dumbass so read it because I know you have the attention of a goldfish so read this whole email because there's shit that you need to do.
I learned this one the hard way early on in my career.

Similarly, if an important email needs to go to several people:
(1) have the primary audience as the "to"
(2) the people who are important but not the primary audience should be CCs
(3) anyone else who you want to copy should be a BCC

Many executives will assume a communication isn't worth their time if they can tell it was sent to 30 other people as well.

I've seen BCC used well when sending out something to a large audience. You can write who it was sent to as a P.S. at the bottom but it avoids the "reply all" chaos that can come from a simple CC to many people.

Yeah that's about it, I think.

I never do it because I'm afraid the BCC will be too stupid they are BCC and reply to all.
