Hi MisterKelley,

I just responded to another question on this board regarding sending a thank-you to a couple who obviously doesn't deserve it. I think that not sending a thank-you would have been an appropriate response. However I know in this day and age, the trend is to "turn the other cheek" or "take the high road".

So my question is:

In my experience, why is that men seem to have the freedom to get a little of their own back, to be a little mean or vindictive, while women are relegated to the roles of peacemaker? I mean if someone is acting like a sh**, then can't we just take a moment (if our actions aren't outrageous or unnecessarily cruel) and tell that person exactly what we think of them? Why do we need to "turn the other cheek" every freaking time?

Thank You
