there are 3 things women need to learn to say to men: "Stop interrupting me", "I just said that" (because men are too prone to repeat thing's we've already pointed out), and "That needs no explantion." For some reason that language always came rather easily to me.

I've often heard it said that the world thinks a man's no means no but a woman's no means maybe. Here in the MidWest I've been urged to concede a point to a man strictly on the basis of gender more than once.

Please see my recent reply to Steve Lesser, whose post I greatly appreciated. Had to tell him about a friend of mine in Los Angeles I thought he'd like!
