How men make us dislike ourselves
Why cant men cope with the fact that women have their periods?! I mean its so natural.
The way they response with :”Anything that bleeds for a week and still lives is not to be trusted” or whatever is so immature. Their response to women having periods makes women think of their periods as something drity, disgusting, shameful or “bad”. Mens Reaction toward women having their period is everywhere. For example the media. When a women a movie has her periods she turns into this monster and just burns and kills everything in her path. Or she becomes annoying and moans around all day long. Its just terrible that this view is in everyones brains. Women acutally believe in this picture too. Men find is scary that a woman bleeds and feels pain and thats not how the imagine a “woman” to be. You know those women that get delivered by the media make men curious. And in those pretty pictures you wouldnt guess that once a month they’re sitting around in their pyjamas, having stomache aches and constantly bleeding.
Do you know the phrase that a real friend stays “for better or worse”. Like even when “the going gets tough”? But I feel like most men can’t do that when it comes to periods. My boyfriend can cope with it and I’m so glad but most of them just react so immature! Its makes women feel so strange about themselves and thats just terrible!
