FFS why do some men think it is OK to accuse women of being 'hormonal' when they disagree with something?

I may be female, I may be pregnant, but I'm angry at you because you have been rude, not because of hormones you idiot. Telling me I'm being 'hormonal' makes me even more angry.

Therefore, fuck off.

Context - brother (we have a difficult relationship to say the least, previous threads...) Skypes me to say he's going to call in a bit (pissed) so be warned.

Condensed version:

me: I have a meeting, sorry, how about tomorrow?
him: that's convenient, I only wanted to hear your voice
me: not v convenient actually. if you want to hear my voice again please be less accusatory
him: hormones
me: oh fuck off.

give him a good kick up the arce and blame THAT on hormones Grin


oldraver · 28/04/2011 21:49

I think I would be more bothered about him saying "I only wanted to hear your voice".... surely its the thing new lovers say not your brother


HecateQueenOfTheNight · 28/04/2011 21:49

It's a way of dismissing you and what you are saying.


LoopyLoopsNincompoop · 28/04/2011 21:51

Exactly Hecate.

And quite, Oldraver, I find it all a bit creepy too, but then he is pissed.

It really, really, really annoys me. It is away of belittling you and trying to make you shut up.

Women get called hormonal, men are being "assertive". Grrrrrrrrr.


mayorquimby · 28/04/2011 22:38

I can see why it would annoy you and it's not something I'd say to a woman.
equally annoying are women who seek to excuse bad behaviour with "it's hormones/pregnancy/pms' etc and expect everyone to just go 'fair enough, carry on acting like a dick so.'


LilQueenie · 29/04/2011 11:36

I get this from DP all the time. Its hormonal, its pregnancy hormones, its the ivf playing with your hormones. Ok so nothing to do with you being a twat who cant take blame then!


DrSeuss · 29/04/2011 11:45

I would be annoyed by DH's need to leave his crap everywhere he goes in this house whether I had PMS, was PG, menopausal, post menopausal or anywhere in between! This house is not cleaned by f-ing Dobbie the HOUSE eLF!

To 'hormones' you should have replied 'Testosterone? Caffeine rush? Or just old-fashioned rudeness?'
