If I have to pretend what a woman is saying is rational in order to maintain a relationship, she’s the wrong woman. Most men will do it, though never admit doing it, but my feeling is: either don’t challenge me intellectually or, if you do, you’re held to the same rational standards that I am – you have to be able to take it if you lose an argument – so pick one – you don’t get it both ways.
