So I’ve been thinking…
If women on their periods are supposedly so irrational, why can’t we use it as defence in court? “You stabbed your husband 100 times.” – “I didn’t mean to, your honour! It was an accident! I was on my period!” – “If you knew you were on your period, why did you not keep away from knives? You knew what could happen.” – “I was making Harvey’s dinner! I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to. I was preparing his dinner, his favourite dish, and I was just cutting up the chicken and then he accidentally called me Tracy… I don’t know what happened! I’m so sorry! *bursts into tears*” – “Ah, now, my dear, don’t cry. It’s not so bad. You have been found not guilty due to temporary insanity due to menstruation! You may leave this court a free woman.”
What? I’m just sayin’.
(Guess how many people ask me if I’m on my period when I show the slightest bit of emotion. No really, guess. I wasn’t mad. Then you asked me ten times if I was mad. And now I’m mad!)
