If A Woman Acts Provocatively Blame It On High Oestrogen Level

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Women with high levels of oestrogen not only look and feel prettier -- but they may act on those feelings by moving from man to man, U.S. researchers reported on Tuesday.

Oestrogen, the so-called female hormone, affects fertility and has been shown to make women dress more provocatively and show more thrill-seeking behaviour.

Dr. Kristina Durante of The University of Texas at Austin and colleagues found that young women felt more attractive when they had high levels of an oestrogen known as estradiol, and they acted on those feelings.

`Women with higher estradiol reported a greater likelihood of flirting, kissing and having a serious affair with someone other than their primary partner and were marginally more likely to date another man,` Durante`s team wrote in the Royal Society Journal Biology Letters."

I`m not a psychologist or a physician, but my diagnosis is that Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan are suffering from a surfeit of oestrogen. The trio of bimbos move from man to man, dress provocatively and indulge in thrill-seeking behavior. Although alleged illegal drug use may have exacerbated the lustiness of the pop tarts.

Great, now skanks everywhere will have an excuse for their promiscuous behavior:

Mom get off my back! You know I`ve been diagnosed with a high oestrogen level! I`m not putting on sensible clothes, I`m going out wearing my high heels, halter top and mini-skirt.

One of my neighbors often flirts with me, she`s married and now I`m thinking that maybe she has a high oestrogen level. If she can use her medical condition to justify her inappropriate flirting, can I use my male hormones to justify my indiscretion if I give in to her flirting?

Nah, that`s a copout. We are responsible for our actions, and we shouldn`t blame drugs or hormones when we do wrong.
