I am only on page 5 of "The Female Brain," and my assessment so far is that it is just not fair!
I am not whining. I know women are strong and smart enough to rise above the forces working against us. I am just saying tht it is not fair that there are so many forces working against us.
The book (so far) explains how hormones impact every facet of our lives - our values, ideas, moods, etc. Our hormones have the potential to change us DAILY.
I have been taking birth control pills since I was 15...I cannot imagine the effect those have had on me. Not to mention, the effect when I forget to take a pill or three. What happens when I switch brands?!
There are hormones in our food, our drinks, our medicine and probably a bunch of other places I am not thinking of.
How can we ever win that battle? How can men ever understand us?
