Men, Meet Menstruation!
Clearly many of us feel the same way: If the guys don't get it, they can't possibly get menstruation (Male Period Comprehension Poll)!

So, ladies , let's help men understand our monthly cycles a little better. What can you say to help men get it, even if a little bit? And, who knows? Maybe it'll lead to 1 less PMS/period joke told today?

Some Men

Posted by: LiaraTivona on Tue Mar 17, 2009

I'm hesitant in contributing an -answer- since I see some problems in the question. The question seems to presume that because men do not understand a menstrual cycle, they don't appreciate the trial, and thus don't realize the harmful effect of jokes. I often support this stereotype of men. However, posed on here, I realized that many men do understand the menstrual cycle, and whether or not they sympathize is not always dependent on that. Secondly, many men, whether or not they understand it, don't tell hurtful jokes.

I'm not saying this is a bad topic. It sounds great. I know some men who would love it. I just want us to be careful that we don't start forming sexual allegiances and thus stereotyping all men as one united group of "others."

As for the answer, I started tracking my cycle 6 months ago. When my significant other learned along with me what symptoms were not just me being random, but part of my cycle, he gained a lot of appreciation for it.
