    Passive agreesive definitely. I try to be more assertive in writing, but I dont think that comes across

    I really dislike the thingy and the word 'meh'. I dont see that as passive aggressive, but rude. It is like saying (a) I shrug of your valid points and think you are silly; or (b) talk to the hand. I pledge never to use them!

    it seems 'more' rude to me as I don't see emoticons on the phone but the phrase ... For ages I thought people were actually typing that to each other which blew me away!

    That's so interesting, for me it's women. I often say that my mum could be a bloody medal winner in the PA olympics, and I don't want to follow in her footsteps.

    I also think that as women on forums, and on this forum, having a normal, assertive dialogue is hard.

    it also depends on how you read things. i know i am quite easily intimidated and that brings out the worst in me. but in rreal life i am a much nicer person..most of mt friends think of me as quiet... hmm that might need work.

    Back a looong time ago, there was a vote to have him removed. I voted. I stand by that vote. He personifies PA.

    I aim for assertive, probably veer into aggressive/ PA a little too often, though.

    I think...well it's more a musing, that in my life women aren't taught to be assertive, aren't encouraged (men too) We're masters of avoidance..change the subject and silently fume. Be assertive and you're "asking too much" or being a bish or a bully...

    I just wish it wasn't so gosh darn hard to communicate!
