Used by men to describe all women in an offhanded
way when expressing their real opinions will cause them great troubles
. For example they could be under threat of being slapped and dumped by their girlfriends, or being punched and kicked into a pile
by their buddies.
Girlfriend: What is your impression of Nancy?
Boyfriend: (Long silence as he fights off the fantasy of being a drop of sweat that glided down her neck into her cleavage) Errrr
, I think she's nice.
(Real opinion: I wish you have legs and nipples like hers.)
Peter: What do you think of my new girlfriend?
John: Hmmmm... I think she's nice.
(Real opinion 1: Oh god, she's smoking hot. I know who I'll be sleeping with when you go away for your next business trip
(Real opinion 2: She's such a loud bitch
, how could you date a hag like this?)
