Just this morning while salting my breafast, I paused to reflect on the color of my Himalayan sea salt. And suddenly it dawned on me. . .
Why not Hermalayan sea salt?
And, while we're on the subject. . .
We know history. Why have we not heard herstory?
Why, our language is full of such scandalous examples.
Hysterectomy. . . Yeah, sure. . . It's hersterectomy, and we all know it.

Someting must be done!

I suggest you write your congressmeh.

@neologist,
A mnemonic for the characteristics of histrionic personality disorder is "PRAISE ME":

Provocative (or seductive) behavior
Relationships are considered more intimate than they actually are
Attention-seeking
Influenced easily
Speech (style) wants to impress; lacks detail
Emotional lability; shallowness
Make-up; physical appearance is used to draw attention to self
Exaggerated emotions; theatrical

@neologist,
And speaking of Hermalayan sea salt - why is it pink? Why not a masculine color like blue?

It gets even more confusing when you can't figure out how to stress syllables.
Is it 'her o' or 'his o'?
'he ro' or 'she ro'?

I can't find my brain now.
Sorry to have bothered you all.

More succinctly:
If a cross dresser has a hersy fit, is the tranny in reverse? How else could it fit?

@neologist,
Oh, does that mean the tranny would become hersterical.
