  1. I read the NY Times Article “when saying yes is easier than saying no.” Fortunately, we as professional women can simply stand up and say NO when some schlub wants us to pull our panties off, or worse yet, starts getting physical when we tell the schlub to hold his own. I say we all need to be VERY clear with men who want to do stuff when we do NOT. Grandma Leyeh says we can start by saying: “back down, because I have no intention of letting you put your thing anywhere NEAR me!” That normally cools him off, but if it doesnt, a swift knee between the l’egs will do the trick. Dad agrees now that I am a single woman, but in his day, he often would not take no for an answer. That does NOT wash these days, he knows and he regrets bullying women 50 years ago when he was a young man trying to sow his oats (which he did behind the IRON curtain).

  2. Hi, this is an execellent p’ost! YAY!!!
