A Post To Make The Ladies Mad

Can you do me a small teensy weeny favor? Stop talking about your menstrual cycles. I don't want to know about it. I don't mean to sound insensitive, but why do strangers need to know about your cramps? I'm not saying suck it up, but I am saying, keep that between you and your immediate family. I can't tell you how many times I've seen stuff about uteruii (I think that should be the plural of uterus) on peoples blogs, twitter, and facebook. I can't tell you how many times at work we'll be having a normal conversation and then some woman changes the subject to her cramps. Come on! Men are around. We don't want to hear all that. It's bad enough that we have deal with the ladies in our lives, can you people who don't really know me spare me the details of your heavy flow days? I know it's necessary for babies and stuff, but can't we just pretend that they come from the stork? Do I have to know the science behind it? 51% of this country are female. Isn't that enough of a group to comiserate with? Can't you trade your period war stories without involving men? Do I tell you about all my bodily functions? Do you hear me talking about my vans deferens? You wanna hear about what comes out of my body? I didn't think so. In conclusion...stop talking about that in mixed company please. Thanks in advance.

I'm a woman and I hate hearing about other women's cycles. But, I just couldn't help myself from blogging about Alyssa's the first time she got it, lol.

we can't help it. some guys are totally clueless and need to know why we act the way we do. if you happen to be around clueless guy who's about to get a heads-up, leave.

That doesn't make me mad. I don't wanna hear about that either. As a matter of fact, I would also rather not see commercials for all kinds of random feminine products on TV. But hey. That's just me (and you apparently, lol)

♥PrettyPacino♥ said...

Yeah, that happens in the store I work at all the time...and it's usually some nasty, worn out lookin high school girl, who apparently thinks cycle convo makes her sound "grown". I don't wanna hear about what's going on in your pants, and further more, it's disgusting to think about you trying on our clothes if you're that....eww. Yeah. Let's move on...

Dear Rashan,

DEAL WITH HEARING ABOUT IT!!! Be glad you don't have to go through it!


Aunt Flow!

Ms. Behaving said...

So...I was gonna comment earlier but I had cramps!! LOL

Jazz hit the nail on the head...

Hearing about it beats actually going through it.

@ Jameil - its not a chauvunistic issue. its a TMI issue. I can take your details, b/c I'm supposed to, but random people I don't need to know about.

@ Not so anon. - Wait, you're a woman? LOL I couldn't help but to not comment on that post. LOL

@ Adei - don't act like its an education issue. You (and Vanessa) actually inspired this post with your tweets.

@ La - The commercials are okay b/c they are less graphic than other peoples thoughts. uggh.

@ Pacino - yeah, I don't want to think about the trying on clothes thing. LOL

@ Diva - tell your aunt that I respect her, but I don't want to talk to her. Thanks.

@ Ms B - LOL - no argument here!
