Hey Boy instead of getting me a coffee can you get me a sanitary pad because I have stained my undergarment, and I am not carrying an extra pad, on the top I have forgotten cash at home…. Have you ever got such a reply from a girl to whom you asked to go for a coffee?
The obvious answer is NO. But have you ever thought that these could be real thoughts of a girl.
I always wondered what reply I would give to someone who asks me Hey … Tell me how it feels like when you are in periods!
Nothing much my friend just imagine yourself bleeding from the most sensitive part of your body for 4-6 days in a row every month. Along with period cramps that makes you feel like simply hold your stomach tightly and pray for death. But nothing of this pain is supposed to be expressed. You have to go to office, do all the house chores, look after the kids and yes, if unknowingly you end up staining your bedsheets it’s you who has to struggle with the scrub and detergent because its your bloody shit and you are solely responsible for cleaning it without making faces.
Am I exaggerating the problem that half of the population of this globe suffers from? I guess no.
