On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence.

And when we have our periods our ‘male’ hormone (testosterone) is actually at its highest level…soooooo…
^ not actually true, testosterone peaks when you ovulate (x). you don’t need testosterone to not tolerate bullshit, either. passivity is socialized in women, not a result of biology.
