Compare And Contrast
Historically, hysteria referred to a medical condition thought to be particular to women and caused by disturbances of the uterus (from the Greek ὑστέρα “hystera” = uterus), caused by the movement of the uterus to various locations within the body as it became light and dry due to a lack of bodily fluids.
Of course we chuckle at the ignorance of the ancients, since today we know hysteria is not limited to women, haha. No, Modern Science teaches us that almost anyone with a vagina can become hysterical once stymied, frustrated or stressed. All appear to have a surplus of bodily fluids.
