Why Don't You Smile?

"I'll hurt my lips." George Harrison

Many many months ago I wrote about my annoyance re: women and smiling. That women are associated more with smiling and are more likely to be targeted with an admonition to do so. Miss Manners recently tackled a question relating to this in her column. I liked her response.
