I see your point and it makes me glad I am not a female (no offense intended if anybody takes any)
Its interesting to see how women tend to get the short end of the stick when they have to deal with so much more then men do, especially physiologically. I'm somewhat surprised that women were treated as bad as they were when the some problems they have to deal with came to light.

Excuse me if I am being ignorant but exactly how is that useful? I think I missed something...
