Insecure men and insecure patriarchal women

If I have a definite view or a strong recommendation, I am called controlling and bossy.

If I have no opinion, or a tentative opinion, or am comfortable with any of several alternatives, I am called vague and accused of insufficient participation.

UPDATE: Another sexist thing I undergo, and do not understand, is the technique of discrediting women by calling us devious, clever, scheming, mysteriously powerful. I suppose on can think of the powers of witches in general, and understand this.

Axé.
