Also by RustledJimmies+7It's amazing when people love each other and rainbows and sunshine, happiness, birthday cake and the colour pink, amirite?
Also about Life+115The American Dream is dead. I grew up being told that if I worked hard I could be what ever I want to be, that I could build a better life for myself and there was a stressed importance of higher education.
The cost of living rises, wages stagnate, higher education no longer guarantees a job and shackles with crippling debt, and worst of all, I feel like my government, my country, has turned it's back on me.
Sorry about a depressing opinion, I just felt the need to shout into the void. I know it's probably better than what I think, it's just hard to see it when I struggle to just live, amirite?
Also about Life+5You only really use this site when you’re pooping, amirite?
Also about Life+87Sometimes, you think about how lucky you are in life, amirite?
Also by RustledJimmies+13It's uncomfortable when you make a joke, and someone answers you seriously. What are you even supposed to do after that, amirite?
wut...women have been in wars for quite some time now, the idea is not just for feminist extremists anymore.
Not on the front lines..
Do men in the front lines have time to pee? Eat? Well then women have time to change their pads. This is not exactly a good argument.
I'm almost certain that women are not able to be in high combat situations. Or at least they weren't a couple years ago.
The snipers have to pee their pants...at least, in the marines they do.
I'm not sure about eating, let me just go ask my first sergeant.
well if the snipers can pee their pants i don't see why the women can't just period in their pants.
i guess you made this to be a joke so there's no reason to go into it but it definitely did not look like a joke at first glance.
Because it will get infected! D: You can't just leave that there!
not if you change it when everyone else is eating.
But you'd be at your designated post for hours. :I Sure, you can get away with wearing the same pad all day, but you ARE risking an infection, which the military would end up getting the shit for because America is sue-happy.
Look, women don't fight on the front lines, especially not in the marines. For this reason. I'm not just vomiting shit and asking everyone to eat it with Bugs Bunny spoons.
I never said women should fight on the frontlines. I know nothing about war to make an argument like that.
But being on your period is not a solid reason, at all. Just use one of those cups that you can keep in for a long time and not get an infection.
Tell that to the marines, and maybe they'll allow it. :I
Okay, I'm a girl, too. Women are weaker and don't think as clearly on their periods.
You stated "women are in wars" in a disagreement to my statement, "should be able to fight in wars". Yes, they are in wars. Do they fight? No. That's what this status is about. I never once said "Women shouldn't even try messing with wars, they should be in the kitchen making my children sandwiches."
Thus, I /assumed/ you were talking about fighting in wars, since it's only a grammatically correct assumption.
I don't think front lines really exist anymore--the nature of war right now is that ANY line can turn into a frontline in a matter of moments. Women do indeed fight on the front lines, even I'd it's unintentionally.
I'm pretty sure it's a joke
I'm a girl - the pad thing is a joke, and I find every single thing that everyone is freaking out about to be completely hilarious. :I
I keep imagining a group of enemy soldiers sniffing the air and going "some woman's on her period! I smell the blood! They're this way!"
that' s why bears attack women !! its true , they smell blood..and the rest is history , literally.
I think if a woman was in the war, front line or not. The last thing she would worry about is her period... Plus I think the worst thing you can get from a bit of blood in your underpants is a yeast infection.. which probably wouldn't need as much attention as say, a gun shot would, or burns etc etc. I think women need to man up :P
PLUS! :P There's a contraception thing called the Implanon. It's known to stop periods for some women.
I'm sorry if I seem too serious, but I could only fight this post with logic.
Stopping periods is also well-known for causing insanity. -_-
I don't feel insane O_o
you can't get a yeast infection from expelled menstrual discharge. and a woman can use birth control pills to stop the menstrual cycle from occurring. many althetic women , especially dancers have used this method since the birth control pill has been marketed in the 1960's.
