In a similar situation, I enlisted the help of a male who _was_
often heard.  After I convinced him that this sort of thing was,
in fact, going on (he he'd heard it, either), we started to tag-team -
I'd make a suggestion, we'd wait, and then he'd make the same
suggestion, including the words "As Pat said...".  Eventually,
it worked.

sigh.  It's certainly a pain, isn't it?
