For all who read this post, but do not follow me on Facebook, one of my friends has pointed me to this article which talks further about the issue.
What I found interesting was that what I thought was a mere observation is apparently a topic of scientific research (which is good for women, incidentally) and also that it is far more pervasive and prevalent than I thought.
Anyway, do check the link and maybe we can continue our arguments after that! :)And thanks to Vignesh Sundaram for the link! :)
