I'm emotional right now, but those emotions are far from delicate


Tags:
The following is the start of an article I found online about Women and Crohn's Disease.

Crohn’s Disease is especially difficult for women to accept as part of their lives. Perhaps it is because women are supposed to be delicate and graceful, but a disease which results in excessive diarrhea and rectal bleeding is contrary to a woman’s idea of what is acceptable. Often plagued with poor self-esteem anyway, women usually react to Crohn’s Disease with more of an emotional sentiment than men.

Men are apparently just fine with having excessive diarrhea and rectal bleeding but women are such delicate, emotional things with such low self esteem that we just can't handle it. Good to know.

Clearly I have been living my life incorrectly. Why didn't anyone tell me!?

Damn, good thing that article told you how you're REALLY supposed to react your Crohn's. Better get started with all the delicate, graceful, low self-esteem stuff right away to make up for lost time. Or not. At all.

For give my indelicacy:

Women bleed out of our vaginas for a week every month. I think we know how to handle bleeding down there. Men, on the other hand...
