Listen, girl, do as you’re told.
Don’t you dare tell this man what to do.
I am obstinate.
You are obstinate.
Perhaps, in this context, considering past experiences, it is now made clear why this mentality bothers me so. I am stubborn and willful while men are determined, steadfast and intractable. All these are synonymous with each other, so may I kindly suggest you take your semantics and condescension and swallow it with a side of your own pride.
