    Give me the capacity for sexual pleasure that women possess and you have a deal. Throw in carrying and birthing children and see how fast I run.

    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...

    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...

    It HURTS!!! What did I do to deserve this? We should have a check box, and we only should get a period of we want children, and when we want our period. Worst of all, it comes to EVERY SINGLE GIRL.....but......NOT A SINGLE GUY. I don't think males should have babies (Idk...

    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

    Nah...let's Go Even One Better....

    Childbirth Just once! hehehe!  *evil grin* Never mind, men are such big babies they'd die from the pain and the human race would cease to exist... Scratch that idea, but it was fun to think about for a minute *wink*

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
