    She is either a ****ty person who was clearly let to get away with that behaviour as child. Or she has a mental health problem. Either way it needs to be dealt with.

    Spoilt upbringing there is little chance of getting her to change in my experience. Never move in with a spoilt girl straight from her parents, insist that she learn to live on her own first.

    Periods are not an excuse for this behaviour. And only 2% of women actually suffer from genuine cycle related mood swings. I hate that women get tarred with this nonsese.

    Edit: it's 3-8% of women, though another source said 3-5%. Even still evidently a very low number.

    ****ty person syndrome then. I'd personally tell her to acknowledge her wrong doings and to work on it or I'm out the door.

    Woops statistic was slightly off it's 3-8%. Sorry for wiki page but my phone won't load studies for some reason.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PMDD

    I remember reading a meta study ( study of lots of studies) that looked into genuine mood swings related to thecycle ( this is very different to just being a bit irritable due to a tummy ache) and I specificallly recall the figure being 2% but wiki will have to do right now....stupid phone.

    No. That behaviour is unacceptable, and I'm not inclined to behave as such just because I have a set of ovaries.

    That's about as ridiculous as me saying in a rape thread "he was a man, men do these sorts of things". No the vast majority do not, as such I wouldn't say such a blatantly ignorant and disrespectful statement.

    ^ OP. Example of someone pandering to gender stereotypes and ignorance by trying and failing to look funny.

    Good job. :rolleyes:
