I got into an disagreement with a friend by telling him I did not appreciate being called a whore. He used the term in jest, but for reasons of my own I find this unacceptable. Rather than tell him publicly I provided him a private rebuke.
A simply sorry would have sufficed.
I was presented with a dossier on why he is allowed to do and say as he pleases.
I could have walked away. I chose to respond.
I am now being given the silent treatment so I can cool down.
He expressed to me that he is in touch with his feminine side and he is not so callous as to speak to any woman the way I suggested. And yet, he did so to me.
I should have responded with a biting comment. Oh, you you got in touch with your feminine side, well, I am glad you found your inner bitch.
Perhaps I should have suggested he find his inner emotionally sensitive side.
