Ask Not What You Can Do For Your Period

"if women are supposed to be less rational and more emotional at the beginning of our menstrual cycle when the female hormone is at its lowest level, then why isn't it logical to say that, in those few days, women behave the most like the way men behave all month long?”--Gloria Steinem

I knew we (and when I say "we" I mean "Ro") were onto something when we decided that BIC is in tune with your menstrual cycle. But it should come as a relief that our periods don't just determine the best time to hide the knives, it can guide you in terms of the best time to execute many decisions. The UK-based Times Online featured an article yesterday advising the best times during your cycle to make certain life changes, including quitting drinking or smoking, starting a new workout plan, meeting a man, or schedule a painful procedure (hello brazilian!?). The article doesn't say so, but I say that you should avoid serious discussion with men about relationships or direction on days 15-28. You can probably reduce your BIC behavior by at least 50%*.

*I do not in any way guarantee this. In fact, I'll be experimenting with the concept myself.

Only a true BIC would literally divide the month in half...logical 50% and crazy the other half...lmao.
