me to westerners:
omg you take your husband’s name after marriage? that’s so oppressive. so you’re like his property? he can do anything he wants with you? *whispers* is it a religion thing?
you put your parents in senior homes? that’s so backwards and heartless. is it a cultural thing?
you leave the house when you’re 18? do your parents not love you? why do they not like their children in the house? is it a cultural thing?
why are all your white men serial killers? is it a cultural thing? are you guys naturally belligerent and have a thirst for innocent blood?
omg you guys owned slaves? how did that even compute as being remotely ok?. i heard you even enslaved your own is it a cultural thing?
i heard you guys throw away food in restaurants instead of letting workers or the homeless have it. that’s so cruel and backwards. is it a cultural thing?
so you get dressed and leave the house to find someone to have sex with? that’s so primitive. is that a cultural thing?

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.
