The best and worst thing about having a womb is that the previously mentioned traits come with it. That’s your share of misery. But Ladies,‘If you’ve got the temerity to be biological, then you’re also going to have to suffer the psychological.’
The link betwixt female hormones and their mental well-being is a treacherous road to trod on for every woman as they are in no control of their emotions.

“Women are not biologically inferior because hormones affect our mental health. But Jesus Christ, it would be nice to have that mental health taken seriously once in a while.”
