In the latest example of men giving their unwanted opinion on the inner workings of women's bodies, a Twitter user has faced serious backlash after offering his stance on the severity of menstrual cramps...
Clearly, this man has no idea about the sheer agony of a period cramp.
Ladies, we've all experienced them - they're painful, they're uncomfortable, and they're down-right unpleasant.
Luckily for most of us, they're nothing a little aspirin and a hot-water bottle can't fix...
But still, we'd rather not have to endure them.
However, there's one thing that makes them even worse...
And that's men giving their unwanted and, quite frankly, wrong opinions on them.
I think we can all agree that men have absolutely no idea about our sufferances once a month, right?
Well, some men think they're very knowledgeable about our cramps and, sometimes, they like to offer out their opinions online.
But the latest to do so experienced a wrath like no other.
One unsuspecting Twitter user casually suggested that women shouldn't complain about their period cramps, because there's one thing that men experience that's worse...
You know, that insignificantly minor injury when falling over?
Well, according to this man, these are not only less painful than menstrual cramps...
But they are simply not experienced by women.
Well, the Twitter community wasn't at all impressed.
yes didn’t you know, only men have knees— molly 🐈 (@heymoonme) March 16, 2019
This is.... nothing? Like you think turf burn is bad? Oh my sweet summer child.— Katelyn Burns (@transscribe) March 16, 2019
I was 8 when I got my first turf burn on my knee. 20 yrs later, I still bear the scar. In HS I got a spike in my back. I've broken my thumb, gotten burned, and more. Yet NONE of those compared to my cramps from periods, which has made me pass out before. Sorry you're a wimp— Rad Tasia, Is Not A Salad Dressing (@GroovyTasia) March 16, 2019
LMAO. "I don't want to hear any woman talk about period pain. This professional athlete skinned his kmees"— Kyle 🌱 (@KylePlantEmoji) March 16, 2019
Turf burns sting... Period cramps are a whole different level of awful... From a girl who’s had BOTH!— Caprice Leonard, MA, ATC, CMT 🌙 (@CapriceLeonard) March 18, 2019
if men think skinned knees hurt that bad they should experience idk something like a skinned internal organ ripped out every single month all the bleeding and cramps and groin pain— Jessica Andrade ✨ (@jesszcs) March 17, 2019
Also, periods feel like being stabbed with a knife in the gut, since one of our organs is literally killing itself for a week as we go into a mild form of labor. But sure. Scraped knees are worse.— Ess⁷ᴮᴱ (@ess_phoenix) March 16, 2019
In speaking with my wife, if you complain about this, you probably couldn't HANDLE period pain. At least this pain is something you get to choose.. Women don't necessarily get to opt out of that pain.— John Roushkolb (@jroushkolb) March 15, 2019
I don't understand. Do you think women don't play sports, or women are invulnerable? What's the point you're trying to make here? I know that you're wrong, I just want to know how wrong.— Alexandra Erin (@AlexandraErin) March 17, 2019
Here's the incriminating Tweet.
Of course, the user hastily deleted it following the backlash but, as you will all know, the internet never forgets.
I think this should be used as a lesson for all men who think they have an opinion on the severity of our cramps.
It's none of their damn business!
