Men should have periods.

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

The other day, a co-worker was talking about her time of the month amongst other female co-workers. About 2 seconds into this conversation, one of my lovely male co-workers chimed in with something along the lines of "yeah, I'm so glad they make the sport tampons now for my active lifestyle". He then snickered as he walked away. At that moment I had never wished men could experience periods more than that moment. Can I get an Amen?

I mean let's get real, there is just no way blue balls can relate to the pain of cramps.

Those craving we get for chocolate or salty potato chips? They would totally understand how bad that craving consumes our every thoughts, They would understand it is not something to be taken lightly. They would understand that eating the last skinny cow salted caramel pretzel ice cream bar, when your lady is PMSing  and has been dreaming about eating it all day, is actually a tear worthy event...

Men would know when it's "that" time of the month, we don't feel that great about ourselves. And that spending a ridiculous amount of money at target is our coping mechanism for our poor self esteem (maybe I made this one up to justify myself???).

Bloating and tender tata's are a real thing, you wouldn't want me to flick your blue balls now would you? Great! Don't touch my ladies. When I tell you they hurt, that shit actually hurts.

And yes maybe me screaming and telling you Feck off because you did that is out of line, but my hormones are out of control. If men had a period, they would totally understand that.

If men had periods, they would understand that even though it comes around every month, it's still super gross every month, and extremely uncomfortable.

Life can be so unfair....
