** Michael was catatonic for a period of time until stern (vaguely threatening) words snap him back to reality. He simply freaked out in a different way.

This trope is also why lead characters in horror movies tend to be female, although given the nature of the genre, they tend to be more sympathetic, being ProperlyParanoid while the men who denigrate them for being emotional are portrayed as either TooDumbToLive, [[YouHaveToBelieveMe obstructively condescending]], or outright antagonistic. She's called the FinalGirl for a reason, after all.

* Blanche, one of the maids on ''Series/AnotherPeriod'', recently spent time in an insane asylum and is still a bit...er...high-strung. Both her employers (the Bellacourt family) and her fellow servants take great pleasure in startling her into screaming fits.

This trope characterizes women as [[WomenAreDelicate less rational, disciplined, and emotionally stable than men]], and thus more prone to mood swings, irrational overreactions, and mental illness.[[note]]The ancient Greeks believed that a woman's uterus would move out of place and attack other organs, causing all sorts of maladies, both mental and physical. The trope name comes from the Greek word ''hysteros'', womb or uterus.[[/note]] As a result female characters may [[StayInTheKitchen be coddled]], or their [[CassandraTruth opinions undervalued]]. In Western works it's more likely to affect female characters [[ChristmasCake over the age of 30]] and who are HollywoodHomely and/or HollywoodPudgy; bonus points if she's a {{Housewife}}.
