    Most Of Us Have

    We're the ones who get the brunt of the abuse when you ladies have a period -- and all we can do is shut up and suffer

    Oh Hell Yes

    The only bad thing would be that us women would have to put up with their whiny bitching. They would be able to take it like a man like us girls do! By the end of the week they would all apoligize for every insult they ever made about women on there periods. If they didn't go...

    Have To Feel It To Understand!

    I just wish that men could feel what we women feel. I don't know about you ladies out there, but I feel like I am a big  heavy sack of over sized potatoes during PMS. Hormones changing month by month does have many affects. Men frankly don't go through it...

    No Givsies Backsies

    Maybe there would be less PMS jokes. Some women have easy-breezy periods, but others (like me) are in excruciating pain from beginning to end.

    Yeah!!! I said this to my stepdad one time

    why don't you try having a period see how you find it! I was completely mortified because he had spotted a small trace of blood I'd left in the bathroom and then made a comment about it at the dinner table in front of everyone! I just got up and left the room. My period had been...

    They don't know what we have to go through.

    If they had to wipe up blood they'd complain. But us women don't complain we just do it.

    I wish I could have my period for a year. I have tried several simulations and even given myself enemas to simulate cramping, but I know deep down it is not the same. I always had little sympathy for my wife when she had her period and now I really feel guilty. If I...

    Why Just One?!

    It's true, men don't understand what we go through having periods and everything associated with them. But I think they should have to go through one every month, like we do, to fully understand how disabling menstruation can be for many of us. It's not just the bleeding...

    I Think Men Should Have To Go Through One Period.

    It would be pritty fricken sweet if men would bleed through their penises for 5 days every month to understand how annoying it is. I also think that they should have their balls squeezed with a wrench every 5 minutes during sed period to get the feel of what cramps are like. I...

    Yup!

    It occurs to me that, despite that this group may have been formed by vengeful females, lol; guys having one period would probably actually benefit both sexes. We gals would know that our fathers, brothers, and signifigant others truly DO understand, from experience, what we go...

    Yeah, this is gonna sound like a weird

    sentiment coming from a man, but I know how little men understand about the whole process, what a girl feels and why. Explaining it to them doesn't help. So I guess the only way to get it is to feel it.

    No - Whats The Point.

    Men and women are different. We never ask you to experience that sex drive that makes us do things beyond crazy in order to get release. Men don't really laugh at a woman's period, but the stories of what men will do to have sex run from scary to laughable. Vive la différence...

    Mainly because when i am on my period he doesn't understand that I am bitchy because of the annoying cramps and boob pain, and sometimes you'll get a month where advil, and you take like 3 in an hour, doesn't work so you're like, oh well. Just sit here and try to sleep I guess...
