I am a female post-doc who frequently called my male graduate advisor
at home during my graduate studies.  We had different time schedules
so this was often the best way to reach him.  I have, on fewer
occasions, also called my current advisor (also male) at home.  I have
never had a female advisor so I can't say whether the same situation
would have been OK with her?
