There’s a stereotype about women that they are being guided solely by their hormones and they’re unable to regulate their own behavior. Many people genuinely believe that women get “crazy” when that time of the month comes, and it has long been used as an excuse to denigrate women in general.
However, they are scientifically very wrong.
Evolutionary scientist Martie Haselton told The Guardian that our hormones don’t make us crazy, and they don’t make us irrational. They just nudge us, and that nudge can result in many funny situations, that many women themselves are happy to admit.
A woman that goes by the Twitter name ‘Twinks’ decided to ask her followers about their “completely irrational things they’ve done whilst being under the influence of hormones?”.
As funny the responses are, we must admit that they’re also painfully relatable. Check out some of the best entries below, and feel free to share your own story in the comments below!
