Could a quick hysterectomy treat female hysteria? Steve Price says yes

PUTTING A PRICE ON PIECE OF MIND, radio commentator Steve Price has come under fire this morning for labelling a leading feminist commentator ‘hysterical’ during last night’s Q&A on the ABC.

Author and Guardian columnist Van Badham hit back at Price, sarcastically suggesting that her ovaries were the cause of her hysteria – which has sparked another debate.

Could hysterical women benefit from a quick hysterectomy? Steve Price says yes.

“Well Van’s basically laid it all on the line with that remark,” said Price.

“Perhaps uppity left-wing women who enjoy being cross at men could get some benefit from a procedure like a hysterectomy?”

“It’d clearly make hysterical women much more docile and easy to handle. Just look what happened with JFK’s sister, Rosemary. She was a handful and a half so they had her wound down a bit.”

Female hysteria was a once-common medical diagnosis, reserved exclusively for women, which is today no longer recognised by medical authorities as a medical disorder. Women considered having it exhibited a wide array of symptoms, including a “tendency to cause trouble.”

However, this is the first time that the ovaries themselves have been singled out as the root cause for the controversial pseudo-condition.

Dr Edwin Gollon from the CSIRO is a leading expert in behavioural science. He has been quick to condemn Mr Price’s statements on his personal blog.

“Look, this isn’t the first time we’ve had an elderly statesman of the Australian media landscape go after a strong headed woman on live TV,” he wrote.

“Sure he was getting put in his box a bit, but all men hate that. Especially on national television. Calling a woman hysterical is like calling a bloke harmless. No bloke enjoys being harmless. We’re men. We can be dangerous. We’re strong and have opinions. But when a woman makes a man feel harmless, he’s probably going to call her hysterical,”

“It’s just nature at work.”

More to come.

    This one of the reasons doctors invented steam powered vibrators in the 1800s as they thought that helping a woman to have an orgasm would cure hysteria. They thought that the previously method of manual manipulation took too long and they needed to speed up the process so they could see more patients.

    It is FACT Van Badham was being hysterical.
    Dictionary meaning:
    1. affected by or deriving from wildly uncontrolled emotion.
    Van Badham was emotionally beating the issue into a frenzy rather being controlled and objective in her generalisation.
    Poor logic comparing men to harmless, men don’t care if labelled as such, as labelling is not be all end all.
    If Steve Price was harmless he would been a push-over puppet, agreeing with everything the feminists said about men and not fight for his right to have an opinion just because media see him as a subjugated man. Unlike most men in the recent media, at least it seems he has a pair.
    Left wing PC media hound real men who stick up for themselves relentlessly, this issues should have ended by now.

    While on the topic of surgery, why not explore the castration of the males who want to neuter the women who criticise them. Or, to avoid prolonging the agony, why not castrate all males (far cheaper and simpler than hysterectomy) and then only allow the male castrations to be reversed when the man has proved himself willing and able to conduct himself in a civilised and equitable manner towards women.
