Female hysteria used to be a medical term.

Does the English dictionary identify hysteria as the root of hysterectomy?
'Salem witch trials' ring any bells?
Another disgraceful example: ... e_hysteria
Yes, I have heard.
They were at a party, not a date.
The time was probably 3 a.m., the light was the last of rosy.
As Greta suggests, the party game is invite touchy but no touchy.
Break rule, you pay.

To bewitch another is to rob them of their good sense.
That was her crime.
Her beauty was bewitching.
She scrambled the thoughts of good men.
Who starts the purge?
(The church is ancient history.)
Who starts the purge of the desirable undesirables?

Katelyn N. Allers, an associate professor of physics and astronomy at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania, told Patheos that Tyson grabbed her arm and reached into her dress while looking at her tattoo of the solar system. She said the incident happened during a party after a gathering of the American Astronomical Society in 2009. ... index.html
And why would she be mentioning this now?
Oh. You asked for speculation.

You asked me, why the long delay between offense, and reportage (pronounced portage, as with a canoe).

It’s because of all the promises broken. It’s because the star-dust party haze that promised the hitch to his star was either implied or inferred. It’s because sometime after the party favours and intoxicants were metabolized in the cold light of day, before coffee or toothbrush, the hitch turned back into a pumpkin. It’s because you can scarcely expect that someone high-minded enough for a mysteriously placed sun-tattoo hot enough to inspire bodice-lunges or wherever, to go out and key his car for revenge, not when a culture confuses band-wagon notoriety with honest accomplishments, and rewards the perks thus afforded, sometimes.

Q: What does it take to bewitch a society?

Answer 1: The big promise of the big desire, told with big confidence on a big stage, looking straight into the camera, perhaps even a finger wag, or with eyes locked on a distant horizon somewhere beyond the back row of the cheering crowd.

Answer 2: (cue for you, and you)
