    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
