If men had periods.

I was writing a post about what it would be like if men had periods. But I can’t do better than this famous and very funny essay by Gloria Steinem.

The essay has a copyright, and I am too lazy to ask for permission to post it here. But it is so worth having a look.

The following ad is really funny too.

That is perfect. I've never read it in its entirety.

On a related note, I think I experienced my first hot flash today. Time for a party!

No wonder men wanted to shut her up. It took a lot nerve to write like this back then.

I am perfectly happy not to know whether any of this is based in reality or satire. I like being male and I very much like not having to worry about periods, except for when I write.

Yep, kind of need my periods for my writing- but not for anything else. ;)

I have never read this, but it is brilliance.

Thank you.

Be glad they don't. Women just get cranky.
As for Men? What does the term homicidal rampage mean to you?
