Im not worried about her getting hurt by it, what i mean about sensitivity, is that people get defensive about criticism and reject everything you say out of self defense, im talking about human nature .Yes I do. Your concern for her sensitivity to criticism, while she herself is criticizing you, is something you should spend some time pondering.
Side stepping it and being indirect via agree and amplify or throwing it back at her definitely can work too, but not always. Speaking your truth, setting boundaries, and being willing to walk away always works. Just be sure it's something important and that you aren't bothered by every little thing. The Doc Love comment is fairly direct and communicates that you don't like it without making it seem like you are making a huge deal out of it, so that's fine. Agree and Amplify, IMHO is best for sh*t tests a girl you JUST met might give you to size you up, or one of your girl's friends might do to you.
Thats why i was planning of going for a side shot like : 'know what i really like about women? When they criticize' staring with a very serious face.
It feels less accusing and more about my personal feelings so somebody else is more likelly to be receptive to it and take it seriously.
