As you can see, I revealed nothing that you hadn't already revealed to the list. Though your comment was cryptic, so was mine. I figured the reason you wouldn't like what I said was because it's so typical to assume that the male controls the female. In fact, this game is played the other way just as often.
I know you didn't want the news to come out like this. I feel bad that it worked out this way.
