Hey guys…can we have a talk? Some of you are making the rest of us look bad because you have no idea how periods work, and you kind of look like morons.
Fellas, let’s try to do a little better, okay? Go read up on this subject so you don’t embarrass yourselves any further.
Here are 10 prime examples of what I’m talking about.
1. The answer is “no.”

2. What is this thing?
A period pad fell out my bag at my dad’s and he said ‘you’ve dropped a PLASTER on the floor by the way’ looool imagine being a FULL GROWN MAN and still being intimidated by a fcking PAD ????????????????????

3. No need to be shy.
i often think about the time a grown man told me i was “freaky” when i was 15 bc i mentioned i used tampons n when i asked why he said because i was “having an orgasm everytime i put one in” and then told me i didn’t need to be “shy” when i said that wasn’t how it worked

7. Wow. That is really something.
i’m a big proponent of comprehensive sex ed because a guy told me he didn’t understand why girls complain about periods because they get to wear tampons so it’s like they’re having sex all the time

9. Solid advice
one time i was talking to my ex boyfriend about my period and the person sitting next to me later said "holy shit you talk to your boyfriend about your period?" and i was like…why wouldn't i? so anyway, definitely don't date OR fuck someone who says "ew" re: your period.

10. “I’m not seeing it in here…”
I told a man at a party that I needed a tampon and he checked the first aid kit ????

Ladies (or maybe even some of the fellas out there), have you had any embarrassing/infuriating/annoying interactions with people about period knowledge?
Tell us all about it in the comments! We could use some more laughs!
