How do you feel about women and their periods? Would you rather not know? Or are you like, “so what? I’ll go and buy her feminine products and chocolate!”
Mr. T - Not a phobia or worried about it.
Mr. U - Natural part of life. Tell me, don’t tell me. It’s all the same. It just bugs me when it’s used as an excuse for anything. In the same vein, I try not to be the guy who’s like “she’s being a bitch, must be that time of the month”.
Mr. V - For a number of reasons, Its helpful to understand when its that time, as long as “that time” does not become a monthly free pass for being a giant bitch.
Mr. W - I don’t need to know when you’re on your period. I can be cool about picking up lady products if I have to, but I don’t think I have to cater to her needs like she’s dying of cancer. The most important time I want to know is if we are about to have sex. I’m not going to have sex with someone who is bleeding from any part of their body. If someone’s nose is bleeding, I would stop foreplay and clog that shit before proceeding.
Mr. X - I don’t care about knowing about them. It’s part of their body, why is that gross? My girlfriend always says “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t tell you about this.” Thing is, that sentence always comes AFTER the description of what ever pain or flow issue is currently going on. Maybe I have just become desensitized to it.
Mr. Y - I think its confusing, why is there so much blood? And why are there pads AND tampons? And can you have a tampon in and pee at the same time? (OAM response: yes, you can, because there’s an opening for each of those things.)
Mr. Z - There is no way I would ever decide on my own to go buy “feminine products”. I’d probably buy the wrong thing unless I had a SKU number or something. We don’t need details on the gross stuff. I don’t explain my poops every day (sometimes twice). Just say “I’m not feeling well in the vagina” and I will leave you to do whatever you want.
