Excuse me?!

Where is it written that one must be male to deal with bullies? I'll have
you know I can deal with a bully just as well as _anyone_ else! (Size, sex,
age have nothing to do with it. I don't take crap.) I realize that I tend to
be sensitive about such things, so I might be overreacting, but still.. A
man can deal with a bully better than a woman? Because of testosterone?? I'm
sorry, but that is an old, tired argument that's just plain wrong.
