"NO" means NO.

"No Thanks" means NO.
"You're Not My Type" means NO.
"*#^+ Off!" means NO...
It's not a revolutionary concept any more but it does bear repeating since the message has no sunk in yet. There are men who ignore women yelling no at them. I've been that woman. I've yelled no. I've been ignored.
