Rather than turn this into a rant about men = logical and women = emotional, I'm going to relate an experience that I've seen many times before. - I am arguing with a woman (usually a gf) - She tries to prove her point - I provide logical evidence as to why she is wrong and I am right - She says "whatever." (I KNOW this seems to not be the right way to deal with women, but I SWEAR that for the life of me I cannot think of a way to argue other than basing it on logical presentation of facts) Does "whatever" mean "you're right and I don't want to admit it"? Or does it mean "I don't want to talk about this anymore?" The thing is, I ONLY heard it said like this after proving someone wrong.
