Excuses, Excuses

A Sydney woman jailed for stabbing her 18-year-old younger sister to death following a fight over internet access and a hair straightener was found dead in her prison cell yesterday.

The 22-year-old woman suffered from the mood-altering condition congenital adrenal hyperplasia, which leads to excess production of testosterone, and by August 2008 had the testosterone levels of an adult male.

Justice Elizabeth Fullerton found her mental state compromised her perceptions and her capacity to control herself or distinguish right from wrong.

Wait a minute... Having the testosterone levels of an adult male leads to the inability to control ones self or to distinguish right from wrong?

If so, why hasn't every adult male on earth gone over the cliff?

What a bunch of nonsense. We are supposed to believe in the absolute ability of women to act more mature and reasonable than men, that girls mature earlier, yadda yadda, but if they have to contend with a man's normal level of testosterone, it all goes out the window?

Justice Elizabeth Fullerton. Following her reasoning, us guys should have all stabbed our younger brothers to death and been dead by suicide by age 22.

That, or women - things being truly equal - can't handle situations and emotions nearly as well as we have been led to believe.

But you already knew that. It's just been unacceptable to discuss it.

I've come across very few women who actually think, instead of feeeeeel, and the common emotion of the majority is always fear laced with an incessant lust for somebody else to take care of them...Hence the Welfare State we've been sinking into since giving them the vote. When that lust is not gratified and they have access to coercion through government, divorces happen. Apparently murders, also!
