Here’s another thing I can blame on the patriarchy: passing out at the Dallas BBQ table after one beverage last weekend.
Unsurprisingly, there are a few reasonssome people, like me, are lightweightswhile others can knock back seven brews and still drive you home.
( JK, definitely DO NOTget in that vehicle .)
According to a report by the BBC, gender is definitely a factor.Women tend to feel the effects of alcoholmore strongly than men do because, on average, girls have higherpercentages of body fat, which doesn’t actually help assimilate alcohol much.
If you’re older, you also might struggle with handling your liquor because you have less water in your body than someone younger.
Less water entails a higher concentration of alcohol in your system, leading to feeling the effects of the alcohol much quicker.
The same logic applies if you have a smaller body; less blood in your system means less dilution of the tequila shots you took.
So, what I’m getting from this is when I’m a small, old lady, I’ll basically be screwed when it comes to managing my liquor.
