you are right that most women are too polite: i've never been accused of that.
one night the spidey-sense went off on my way into a drinking establishment. i told someone who approached me to back off and get the F away from me. the person didn't and stated he just want to get to know me better. my response: "if you were smart you'd get the F away from me right now because you don't know me well enough to know what i might or might not do" said in a very clear, loud, determined, and pissed off voice......dude backed off but wouldn't turn his back to me......i think i scared him! it helped that i was already in a bad mood!
the "leave me the F alone" attitude has come in handy on more than one occasion.

Gun Control: "The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound."-- as seen on a t-shirt
