It’s unbelievable to me that we still need to say this in 2019: Guys, DON’T ever try to tell a woman that her period pains aren’t that serious. Honestly, it takes a real idiot to belittle someone’s pain. I’ve known dudes who could get stabbed in the chest without blinking an eye and yet quivered at the sight of a flu shot. You never know how something affects someone, and their pain is not made any less real just because it doesn’t hurt you the same way.
And yet, there’s always some self-appointed jackass willing to offer his hot take anyway, like this guy.
This man not only claimed that women tend to overreact to their menstrual pain, but he also compared that discomfort to skinned knees, which all of us have experienced at one time or another in our lives. Take a look at his post.

Dude…you’re an idiot. And you know you just opened the floodgates to get your ass handed to you.
Ladies, you may proceed.
This is…. nothing? Like you think turf burn is bad? Oh my sweet summer child.

What was this guy thinking? Here’s some more feedback for him.
Until men experience the involuntary pain of abuse, child birth and oppression I don’t want to hear about little scrapes on knee.

Mild form of labor is a pretty good description. Real labor is white hot, searing pain as a woman is literally ripped apart from the inside out. The hip bones spread slowly over the course of hours, the vaginal canal stretched to its ripping point. Men couldn’t handle real labor.

I was 8 when I got my first turf burn on my knee. 20 yrs later, I still bear the scar. In HS I got a spike in my back. I've broken my thumb, gotten burned, and more. Yet NONE of those compared to my cramps from periods, which has made me pass out before. Sorry you're a wimp

if men think skinned knees hurt that bad they should experience idk something like a skinned internal organ ripped out every single month all the bleeding and cramps and groin pain

Also, periods feel like being stabbed with a knife in the gut, since one of our organs is literally killing itself for a week as we go into a mild form of labor. But sure. Scraped knees are worse.

Do you think this guy will ever open his mouth like this again? My money is on “NO.”
