I think woman lose their natural persuasive power by attempting to use language that a man would use. Men have spend their entire lives under the thumb of woman especially when we are very young. Our very survival depended on a woman in almost all cases. A raised eye brow or well chosen nonvulgar words will put a man in his place if you chose to.
Acting like a man is weakness not a strength. Enhance what God gave you. Don’t try to be more masculine than a man. It’s pointless. Believe me it’s not that much fun anyway.
