The Living Force
Yeah, I don't mind the once a month thing (which for many could be alleviated by change in diet), but if someone's in that state all day, every day, it can be a bit much to take! :)Chrissy said:truth seeker said:I've been thinking that female psychopaths might be a bit more difficult to spot due to the possibility that their behaviors fall within the spectrum of what's considered socially acceptable for women. Behaviors such as eliciting pity can easily mask as wounding to the average person because we are programmed to view women as weak, submissive, etc.
I was thinking this as well, Truth Seeker. Also, I could never quite understand all the hype around a woman's monthly cycle. It seems to me, we are programmed to accept that once a month, a woman has the right to be irritable and display bad behavior all do to her hormones.
I've been doing some research on this and a good deal of it involves people who've been incarcerated. Perhaps this is because the science community finds a bit easier to gather larger groups of these types of individuals to do their research on. I think that, unfortunately, as with male psychopaths, the harm done covertly in families and smaller groups is way more prevalent and destructive even.
I mean, how many of us know someone from work, school or our own families that fit or have many of these characteristics yet write it off as the person 'just' being nasty? If this is something that is so ingrained in us to file under women just being women, can we really know just what percentage of them really exist? Perhaps there are as many females as males or worse yet, more of them but because of our programming that says women are nurturing and caring, have difficulty accepting the possibility that all is not what it seems? Maybe psychopathic women are the more dangerous of the species like the black widow spider. I could be completely off in this, but am just throwing out some possible food for thought.
