This is a statement every man
will inevitably hear in their lives
. It is stated by a woman
(in a serious situation) and usually mockingly by a man. Women
use this to annoy
and otherwise torment
their men or men in general.
An example perhaps? Sure, here it is.
A woman asks a man something. He gives a non-commital answer. She asks a different, but underlyingly similar question. He wonders what she is asking. She pulls out the "hands on hips" thing and says those horrible words, "If you don't know, I'm not going to tell you".
The world sighs in sympathy. A flower somewhere dies. A white sheet on a bed turns a little darker. A lyricist discovers a new rhyme for his song. And the man in question becomes infinitly confused and just wonders why the Hell there isn't a female language translator.
