More Gender Differences

Women ask questions that are actual questions. Men ask questions that are anything but. Their questions are mile-long marketing pitches that have the most tenuous of connections to the talk and that aim to showcase the intelligence, extensive reading, and extreme profoundness of the person who is asking the fake question.

It took me a while to learn this strategy because I’m very literal and I tend to interpret the phrase “does anybody have any questions” as a clue to ask questions.

But I learned and now I can self-promote under the guise of asking questions with the best of them.
