‘Whatever’ is Not a Retort

I need to get something out into the open.

The word ‘Whatever‘ is not a retort.

I’m serious. Maybe I’m watching too much Judge Hatchett Divorce Court Texas Justice Moral Court Judge Mathis Judge Judy but to turn to someone you disagree with and say Whatever really doesn’t make you the winner of the conversation.

Ever since Cartman appeared on Maury Povich I’ve felt this in increasing importance.
