Did your dad call you "hard-headed"? Mine did. All the time. "You're hard-headed and you don't listen." Anna says her dad said it to her, too, along with, "You ask a lot of questions." Well a new study has found that, surprise!, women have thicker skulls than men. They don't seem to know why, but we suspect it's to annoy parents. [UPI]
Report Finds 19 Women at ICE Detention Center Were Subject to Aggressive Gynecological Treatments Without Consent
I was called hard-headed, a smart-ass, and an "agitator" (and "too big for my britches" on one notable occasion). Which led to me being referred to as "Michael," after my wise ass uncle, for a significant part of my childhood.
Oh, but when my grandfather used these terms, he usually said "hard-headed Dutchman." That's one slur I've never really understood.
