What the heck are they doing with this Stephanie plotline?!?! I do not like where this seems to be going at all.
We get Stephanie set up as a competent businesswoman. We even get her to stop screaching, except when appropriate. She's authoritative. She's in ruthless competition with Bischoff. She's enough in control that she can just blow off Eddie making little sexist comments (like calling her "mommy" & "nobody would listen to just a woman"). I'm happy with this.
Now we've decided that we're going to have Stephanie become completely irrational because its her time of the month?!?!? Oh, puhleeease! If they wanted her to fall apart under the pressure -- well, whatever. But blaming it on her period is about as sexist as I can think of.
I thought we were going to let Raw be the bastion of sexist bullshit. Thus freeing up Smackdown from that kind of nonsense.
You want to know something scary, I had a visit from Uncle Red at the same time Aunt Flo visited Stephanie. I was in a really bad mood because he wouldn't leave me alone. But, I try to be cool with my relatives when they came over at thanksgiving. So, as far as being irrational during periods, I also disagree. You are either not in the mood to do anything or just try not to bark at everyone. Fortunately, my visit ended about the same time hers did. Though unlike me, she shortly received another visit...from Scott Steiner. Ewwww....
P.S. For next month, Uncle Red is less obvious, meaning my period jokes are FUNNIER!

Also - at least in my family - trying to blame your poor attitude and bad mood on your period plain old didn't work. My mother never bought into any hormonal excuses for my behavior - if I acted like an idiot, I was punished for it, regardless of whatever else was going on.

A squirming Randy Orton is a great thing. I loved the backstage segs this Raw. And Randy called Trips - Trips! And slashy? I wonder if it just seems slashy because I'm looking for it now, or if it...well, let's just not go there. SD!
