We are all so familiar with the term – ‘That Time Of The Month’!
Some of us even use it jokingly for mood swings not associated with the monthly menstrual cycle. We crib and cry about how our lives get restricted because we are “down”. Cramps and mood swings aside, we feel bloated and have to be conscious about what we wear lest we “stain”.
That said, there are million of girls who do not have access to proper sanitation methods or even a clean toilet. Indian girls in the rural areas are known to have used rough sacks or cloth to deal with the bloody flow. There are still some areas wherein girls are forced into solitary confinement with even their utensils being segregated from the main kitchen.
So, as a woman, I want to raise the point – What if men had periods?
One thing is for sure, if men had periods, they would definitely brag about the size…no, don’t get me wrong. The size of their tampons!
Women would be expected to behave warm & considerate! Hah!
Advertisements would be like
Tampons or Manpons would be as much of a novelty as condoms
They will finally say NO to sex during periods
Would ask for special allowance for work-from-home
Likewise, L-guards L-pads will be introduced. Lol!
Unfortunately, no masturbation during periods!
Even more, no porn. It will result in more pain…poor men!
Now, it’s their turn to worry about spotting. Yuck!
Their turn to face restrictions during ‘those days of the month’
If this happens, men will finally come to know the discomfort and pain a woman undergoes every month.
