What is interesting right now is that I am trying to justify to myself that I am not permanently emotionally inept by virtue of my genetic makeup i.e. as a guy and most of the research that I am finding to support my position was written from the very different position of women who are trying to prove that they are capable of emotional control.
The one that was interesting to me was this lady writing about several legal cases in England where women were given reduced sentences in murder trials because they were pre-menstrual. The writer was I think pissed at these cases because she saw the thinking behind them as valid justification for the subjugation of women. I.e. girls need special considerations during that time of the month because their hormones are out of their control was insulting to her. I can see where she is coming from as well.
