Menustration rarely hurt for me. It is a lot of mind over matter. I think only weaklings have that problem.
Getting a period every month is a biological POSITIVE for our female bodies... not a NEGATIVE.
Eh having monthly periods is not a burden at all for strong/confident women...unfortunately some women do USE their monthly periods as an EXCUSE as to WHY they behave the way they did/do...."oh I was pre-menstrual, oh I was having my period, oh I was post menstruating, so THAT'S why I acted the way I did"....blah, blah, blah.
I had my 1st period exactly ONE month after I turned 12 yrs old back in 1975.... where I STILL get my period every month, even at 55 years old....which I don't mind AT ALL getting every month because it's actually a positive to still have monthly periods when your older, because it MEANS you still have a lot of estrogen left in your body at an older age...which MEANS still having glowing skin, a lot more energy than your fellow aging female friends do, as well as not having to go through menopause when your 30/40ish still feeling young.
My 3 sisters(one younger than me and 2 older than me) all brag about no longer having to "deal" with having their periods every month.....whereas I feel that when I no longer get my period every month THAT'S when I'm officially old lol!!!!!!! :)
Could be. I know for sure, that many women experience severe and somewhat debilitating pain, along with other far from pleasant symptoms. They do what they have to and try to smile, when they can barely stand up straight. They are not "weak"....
I would agree. Not everyone experiences everything the same.
Hmmmm, has it ever crossed your FEMINIST mind that maybe GOD in HIS plan, gave us women monthly periods to prepare us women of MONTHLY pain, to one day prepare us women of the PAIN involved to give BIRTH to HIS/OUR future children because HE deemed WOMEN to be the stronger of the 2 genders he created. Nope, instead you feminists NUTS complain about having a period every month(an inconvenience for you all) ......not having a freakin' clue AT ALL that us women having a period ever month IS in fact a GIFT from God for us women being the CHOSEN gender to give BIRTH to GODS/our children.........
nope instead you liberal feminists NUTS "feel" in your f'd up minds that you all having a monthly period is a BURDEN on you all.....thus you liberal female NUTS sadly having the deranged mindset/mentality of "feeling" that you shouldn't have to pay for your own abortions, tampons/pads and birth control...because "like ya know we as STRONG feminist women today UNFORTUNATELY did NOT have the CHOICE to choose our gender, that is given to babies today(via their awesome progressive parents) to decide which gender they wanted us to be."
Nah, not really. I did learn about the why of menstruation though, back around 1967. Fact is, many women do indeed experience extreme pain and discomfort associated that bodily function. In my world, "us women" haven't done that much "complaining" about what is or was just an inevitable and expected monthly occurrence.
That is the extent of my willingness to discuss this particular subject...
Oh please, us girls growing up in the era of a normal USA, getting our monthly period was just a normal way of life, where us TRULY STRONG women back then learned to live with that pain every month EVEN while playing sports back then...eh but now we have Hollyweird FEMINSTS getting a freakin' OSCAR for their whiny documentary about the struggles and pain that women have to go through during their freakin' monthly periods, smh at how WEAK women are today.
My tough as nails Nana growing up in Ireland at the turn of the 20th century, was forced to quit school at 10 freakin years old for her to go to work on a farm in Ireland of that of a "rich" family in Ireland for her to help financially support her parent's family of 13 kids......she on her own at 17 YEARS in 1924 came to the USA all alone via a ship ala the movie Titanic to have a better life in the USA than the life she was living in Ireland being away from her parents and HER 13 siblings....my educated guess would be that my NANA got her 1st period while working on that farm or while sleeping alone in her "room" in their BARN with that rich family's farm animals, thus she dealt with it without having pads or tampons......so yeah I have ZERO SYMPATHY for you freakin' liberal women of today complaining/whining about having YOUR periods.
My tough as nails LEGAL Immigrant Nana who at 17 yrs old came to the USA all by herself in1924, was the most influential positive FEMALE in my life growing up, as well as she is now for my 2 daughters...who know all about their great grandma as being a tough as nails WOMEN back when their great grandma came to the USA during the era of when "IRISH NEED NOT APPLY".....but she did apply with her tough as nails ATTITUDE back then when she knew she was being discriminated in the USA for just being IRISH.
I'll take the -7 years. I respect women for the burdens they bare, but I am content with baring mine. :)
Just another of those things women bitch about that we allll have to 'take their word' for, because it can't be proven or disproven by men. That's OK, though. Women never lie, exaggerate, misrepresent, or dramatize... do they?
Periods are nothing to be miserable about. Period.
