    Trauma

    I grew up around too many women for that to happen to me. Btw if women live together long enough they tend to cycle together.

    Menstruation

    Maybe a small percentage of men get traumatize when women mention menstruation.  Having our period is part of life and go figure, I'm uncomfortable talking to men about it myself and I don't even know why.

    Allright Seriously

    We know, it's a little gross. We've heard all the jokes, and some of them are funny, we admit. We know we become entirely different human beings while we are on our periods, and believe me, if you think it's hell on you, you should be the one bleeding from your vag for 7 days and...

    Not Traumatized

    I am not traumatized but then again I can't say I am 100% comfortable either. I remember calling my sister and asking what I could do to help, she said "Run" lol. For me all I want to do is do anything I can to help relieve the pain from cramps and make her feel better but I...

    Well To Be Honest...

    ...even I get freaked out when people talk about it in detail. I'm just like "okkkk, thats nice....?" (*creeped out face*) "I didn't need to know... having your period isn't exactly a amazing topic to talk about. It's pretty freakin' gross if you ask me.

    Suppress Pain

    There are painkillers that can effectively stop that kind of pain because you women take it to far and use menstruation as an excuse to behave violently and with justification.

    Just The First Few Grouchy Days

    The only part I find scarey is the first few grouchy days. My wife says I get really stupid every 28 days. First I learned to tell the difference between the grouchy days and when I had actually pissed her off. Then I learned it's not ok to point out that it's just PMS.

    Some Slack Please?

    I'm a guy, and I'm not aghast at the mention of menstruation. I was quite in tune with my ex's cycle. It's part of reproductive knowledge... I can't go too far into the topic, because there is really nothing to say! Sorry I can't answer your question! LOL

    It's Not The Actual Menstruation

    It's not the actual menstruation, we know perfectly the cycle. It's the mood swings, the being in trouble for nothing even though we try so hard to do the right thing. So when you say we are so traumatised it is true, we are shellshocked and the mere mention has us ducking for...

    The Reason

    The reason men like me get uncomfortable with women chatting about Menstruation is that its a area that were not that experienced in obviously, and we don't know how it feels, but women get so patronizing when a man get hit in the sack. It is by far the most horrible and...

    What's The Big Deal?

    Women don't get traumatized(although, quite frankly, I think women should) when men are on their monthly cycles. Besides, menstruation is not a bad thing, it's a natural part of being a woman and it should be embraced by both men and women. P.S. I sound like a hippie :P

    Not This Guy!

    I have no idea what guy gets traumatized talking about menstruation, I feel like throwing a party for my wife and myself once a month knowing that we aren't about to be parents before we are ready. The same goes with buying tampons and pads, I don't mind, why would I? The sales...

    Why Can't More Men Be Like Jack? :d
