Women who are uppity, confrontational, constantly nagging, easily angered and needlessly argumentative are to be celebrated as brave fitness enthusiasts who are working out their heart muscle and keeping themselves healthy and stroke-free.
Stop shunning women’s healthy behaviors.
Expressing how you feel may not just be good for your mental wellbeing – it could also prevent strokes.
Scientists from the University of Pittsburgh found bottling up anger is linked to a build of a plaque in the carotid arteries in women.
These arteries supply blood to the brain, with a narrowing being a leading cause of life-threatening strokes, they claim.
Prolonged stress has been linked to inflammation, which is known to trigger stroke, heart attacks and chest pain, past research suggests.
‘Given increased public health interest in women’s experiences in intimate relationships, our results suggest women’s socio-emotional expression may be relevant to their cardiovascular health,’ lead author Dr Karen Jakubowski said.
‘Studies like this one are valuable as they highlight the importance of understanding how a woman’s emotional disposition can affect her physical health.
‘These results should encourage healthcare providers to take into consideration socio-emotional factors when outlining a preventive care plan for their patients.’
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the US, with more than 140,000 people dying from the condition every year, Stroke Center statistics show.
In the UK, stroke is the fourth biggest killer, with over 100,000 incidents taking place annually, according to the Stroke Association.
It gets even more sinister when you consider that the patriarchy not only upholds a wage gap that monetarily benefits men over women, but also a stroke gap that keeps men healthier!
Women are more at risk of stroke than men and are less likely to recover, statistics show. This has been linked to the menstrual cycle, hormonal contraceptives and pregnancy complications.
The scientists, led by Karen Jakubowski, were interested to discover the role so-called ‘self-silencing’ could play.
Many people hold their thoughts and emotions inside in an effort to avoid arguments or the breakdown of a relationship, they wrote.
However, self-silencing has been linked to both poor mental and physical health in women.
Thank you, fellow white scientist researcher-person Karen Jakubowski. Now I know that expecting women to behave is literally the same as expecting them to die of a stroke.
This is okay and healthy:
If women silence themselves instead of letting it all out, they eventually explode.
Next time you catch yourself thinking that it would be nicer if women acted in a more feminine manner, remember that if they did that, they’d die and you’d have no women at all.
Better to have rape-hoaxing demons than to have no front-holes at all, right?
With this information, it’s easy to see that trying to calm women down when they’re upset or throwing a tantrum can be considered a literal attack on their health aimed at inducing a stroke.
Opposing them is no different than murdering them, which is why we have to make it illegal to not obey women.
They are the leaders now.
