    I am not one for tact. I say what I am feeling and if it hurts someones feelings than so be it.

    I have a 12 year old son who's friends have told him I am a *****.

    They say that because when they don't listen, yeah I can be pretty mean to them. When they are in my house they will respect me or I will tell it like it is.

    By the way, I live in the south but I am originally from NY.

    I have been told my face is "mean" because I don't smile all the time. I, too, was raised up North, and up there, if you smile all the time, you are not trusted. It is not easy to change one's unconscious facial habits! And my face is not "mean" because I am not frowning, I am just not smiling.

    I think that as the South gets more "urban" there is going to be a natural move away from this "fake smile" custom, just because of the pressure of numbers.

    Cherrah and Georgie, I agree with both of you. I don't know why we're considered b****es when we are honest and straightforward and know what we want. Sounds like a jealousy thing to those that cannot handle women like us.

    Cherrah... I agree with you..life is too short to beat around the bush. Of course, if I know the person is too sensitive, than its a total different ball of wax. I also appreciate, when people tell the truth, I would much rather here from someone (friend or stranger) that my shirt (whatever) doesn't look right, than continue to look foolish. 2 seconds of embarrassment is better than being a fool. Only my 2cents. You know that is more of a Northern attitude, than a southern one, have you always been from TN.?

    Hey Ladies what's up. I'm not mean, I just say what I mean and mean what I say. Now what's wrong with that? I use tact and I am respectful, so I don't tolerate disrespect. If that labels me as mean, then oh well, I guess I am. lol Hailing from TN.

    Guess, a city in Texas

    OK, so do we have a list of qualifications as being "mean" when we are just being "real"? *lol*
