*raises eyebrow skeptically*

According to the BBC, a new study shows that women physically suffer disproportionately in strained (heterosexual) marriages. Whereas men and women both showed signs of depression in unhappy marriages, only women showed elevated levels of hypertension, heart disease, etc.

According to some random counselor quoted in the article, "The gender difference could be partly due to the fact that women's hormonal profile is more complex than men's. Women also tend to worry more about their health than men."

Oh, of course! We women are just walking bags of hormones and neuroses! It couldn't possibly be because gender roles in marriage are far from equal and women get the short end of the stick more often than not. *headdesk headdesk headdesk*

Hi! I found your blog from somewhere...don't know where at this point, but I've just read all the archives! I'm excited when I find other college students into BDSM because it seems like there are so few (though maybe I don't explore enough). Anyways, just wanted to say hi and thanks for writing!
