    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.

    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.

    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.

    I Mean, Seriously, Dudes....

    What's the big deal?  I have never known a dude yet who can comfortably talk about menstruation.  Look,  half the people in the world are female... we spend half our lives dealing with this.... GROW UP .... it's no big thing. If you're asked to buy tampons or...

    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...

    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...

    What's So Traumatising?

    It's just periods, not like it's something unspeakable. Men don't have to suffer through them, so the least they can do is listen to us mention it with the occasional moan and snap. It's not traumatising, it's nature. Just like giving birth or hormones. It happens, it's life. My...

    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...

    Trauma

    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
