The truth hurts, don't it, when you've been told lies by all of the people you respect for all of your life.
So, when some nasty old man comes along and says that women shouldn't be in a position of leadership because their hormone shifts around their cycles negatively affect their decision making, they throw themselves on the ground to scream, pound their fists, and drum their heels.
Boo-fucking-hoo, little girls. I am a grown woman and a mother. I know and accept this about myself.
And you know what?
I shrug, do my best to compensate, rely more heavily on my husband's judgement, and I deal with it.
Screaming "It's not true!" won't make it not true.
(Thanks for the story, Captain Capitalism. I always enjoy a good belly laugh at someone else's expense.)
