    Well, you're right. My statement was false. Let me fix that.

    But you're not making people squirm. You're making them dislike and not want to listen to you. They will dismiss your point because you are not describing them. Not the best approach for creating...

    For what it's worth, I imagine it's not any one person doing all of those things at the same time. Those are, in fact, different aspects and would be approached differently by the male mind. ...

    Absolutely sure that "Using the word "whining" pretty much makes the rest of your point irrelevant." is incorrect.
