Every american male has learned like in the last ten years that when a woman says no, she means no doesn't mean. Maybe it means no right. We'll pay attention. Folks, on Sunday the news analysis section of the New York Times featured an article titled Wednesday, and yes, he is easier than saying no, it's by Jessica Bennett, the gender editor of the New York Times. That is her actual title. Now she and her female friends and spoken with knowing nods about the nuances of sexual interaction. Sometimes they say, there's a place of no return.
