meat0918: "Making a comeback".Dude, mass hysteria went no where.Or he must not have lived through the D&D = satanism scare.Or rainbow parties (though this might be a facebook/myspace timeframe)
HailRobonia: Men, on the other hand, don't suffer from crazy psychosomatic things like this.
mike_d85: FTFA: Typically, mass hysteria is confined to a group of girls or young women who share a common physical space for a majority of the time. Bartholomew has studied over 600 cases, dating back to 1566, and said that the gender link is undeniable; it's just a question of why.Speaking of shared psychological disorders, does this remind anyone of when women's menstrual cycles synch up?/I honestly believe many "symptoms" of PMS are psycho-symatic.//Or just being a biatch because they can get away with it. You know, whatever.
DerAppie: meat0918: "Making a comeback".Dude, mass hysteria went no where.Or he must not have lived through the D&D = satanism scare.Or rainbow parties (though this might be a facebook/myspace timeframe)That isn't mass hysteria in a psychological sense. Mass hysteria, as opposed to massive public outrage/scared, creates physical symptoms which appear to be contagious. This despite there not being any external agents actually causing the symptoms in the first place.Rainbow parties, d&d scare, human sacrifice by satanists etc didn't qualify because no-one woke up with a coloured dick/d20 dice + rulebooks/heart cut out without there being some direct, non-psychosomatic cause.

ZeroCorpse: You can tell that some Jezebel readers have found that article from the tone of some of the comments./Oh, I'm sorry. I meant compersonts.
Fano: As a professor of mine once said "just because it's all in their head doesn't make it any less real (to them)"I imagine some females consciously or unconsciously use "PMS" as a blank check.
Elegy: FTFA: About two dozen teenagers at the Essex Agricultural and Technical School began having "mysterious" hiccups and vocal tics.Someone needs to introduce these poor highschool girls to the traditional Victorian cure for hysteria.
Marcintosh: Excuse me, Pardon me but . . . is this the way to the Pat Roberson thread?
