אני מוגן

Ok, what was weird, at night I was dreaming about this phrase. It means "I'm protected", am I right? And I wonder if there's any difference a man or a woman says it? Is gender important here?

(Sorry if I didn't make myself clear. I'm bad at explaining things, especially in english.) :oops:

Your question is very clear :) Well, maybe it would be confusing for someone who only knows English or other languages in which gender is nearly never distinguished.
If a woman says this phrase, it will be אני מוגנת - ahnee muhgenet.

It is not a common everyday phrase (in English, at least), but the phrase "I am protected" does have a certain significance on the Internet.

It's actually a catchphrase from The Something Awful forums. A person asks, "Do you have stairs in your house?", and the correct response is "I am protected". That's how people know if another person is a member of a forum.
