I think it is time for a woman to lead this country.

I honestly don't think a lot of males "see" the stuff you're talking about. In a similar vein, DH is a world class packrat but seemed to know where everything was. Problems arose when anybody else went to look for something which he stashed somewhere; and he alone could find it. Now he's getting older and the memory isn't what it once was. He's beginning to see the value of organization.

As for the patently absurd suggestions that your reaction to the disarray is hormonal, I'd ignore them. Why mess with a perfectly good delusion?!

Well, then. We'll just elect post menopausal women: the Hillary Clintons, and Nancy Pelosis, and stay away from the Michelle Bachmans and Sarah Palins.

Yes, I've noticed that some men think a woman getting pissed off about something means it's their "hormones." Pat the little lady on the head and humor her. Gosh, that kind of attitude ticks me off.

Well, you know what that's about and humoring the little lady ain't it. If a man can project his flaws onto a female and claim it's all about PMS or "hot flashes", then the problem is hers, not his. No need to change behavior or patterns of thinking. Ticks me off too!

I don't know many. I remember one woman I used to work with that had a severe problem, her sister was worse. Both had to be medicated. It's a serious issue for those that do have this problem.

of course there is some truth to it. If I'm being honest, since high school the first time I was called out on my mood the guy that did it was right on. He was one of 2 boys of 6 kids.
I don't like when my husband blames every bad mood on my period. Of course he and my kids have been responsible for a lot. There is nothing worse that a family that doesn't clean up after themselves, especially after I've just cleaned.

I don't know that it would get in the way of doing any job though, with the exception of those with serious mood swings requiring medication, and that does happen. Fortunately it's a much lesser degree

How so? What if I include Olympia Snow and Susan Collins as post menopausal candidate?

BTW It's your argument, not mine to defend or prove.
