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.
