French proto-psych's coined the term "hysteria" in the 19th century, because this sort of behaviour was supposed to be only exhibited by women...
(from a greek word hyster = womb. What IS the right form of that greek word anyway? Any eggheads out there want to set me right?)
Those guys really had ways of making you ashamed you were a woman. Other hand, a little later Freud stated that all little boys wanted to have sex with their mothers.
Walk in (confused) beauty, annemarie
PS: being a transvestite doesn't make one hysterical.
