    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...

    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

    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.

    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...

    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...

    It's Not That Bad But Yes

    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...

    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...
