On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence.

And what did Tommy always have with him?
HIS TRUSTY SCREWDRIVER.
OH MY GODCRYING!
THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
Finally, he gets to be a ginger.
