Man moaning it’s ‘disgusting’ when women talk about periods sent graphic stories – News Live
A man who said it’s ‘disgusting’ when women talk openly about their periods on social media has been inundated with graphic stories about menstruation. He tweeted his dislike for hearing about monthly cycles and it’s since gone viral, with thousands commenting to share their experiences. Twitter user @Mr_Emmcap__wrote: “It’s so disgusting the way some girls complain about period pain on social media. “Yes we know that you guys go through a lot during period but is it that difficult to keep it yourselves or what?” Needless to say people did not keep it to themselves after that, and people started sharing intimate details about their periods – bonding with others in the process. One person wrote: “I can literally feel my uterus shredding and I get such bad pains in my vagina that I can’t move for the whole 5 days and my friend has been to the emergency room 3 times while she was on her bc [because] the cramps were so bad.” Another commented: “I got my period on Christmas day. The cramps meant I was curled up on the sofa for hours. “Then in my sleep my menstrual cup dislodged itself and I bled down my legs as I went to fix it. It was messy. Don’t get me started on the blood clots.” A third said: “Okay this is the most liberating thread ever ! I always was a mess when I’m on my period”. Others agreed: “This tweet is exactly why we talk about our periods on social media.” People even bonded with each other over their similar experiences, commenting things like “period twins” and “cycle sisters”. The original poster has yet to reply to any of the 3,500 comments about periods, but doesn’t seem to be too phased by the stories, as he’s retweeted a lot of them.
