This woman’s date thought periods last an entire month – our favourite 13 responses
Two slightly unusual things about this woman’s date. First – the guy apparently thought periods last an entire month. Second – how did the topic come up in the first place?
Well, he’s only 28, maybe the topic hasn’t come up in class yet.
It prompted all sorts of responses from people – okay then, mostly women – who had something to say about it and shared their own stories of men who knew too little.
Here are some of the best, as highlights by the good people of Someecards.
Like, all jokes aside, it's actually scary how little men know about periods. I met a guy once who thought that women could control their periods: like turn it on and off like a tap. pic.twitter.com/XGngssGc5o

It's good that you got the 'how long do you think a period lasts?' convo done on the 1st date. A lot of people leave it till a few more dates In.

My guess is ladies have repeatedly told him this as to avoid sex with him. He was just doing the math…

When one of the first women went into space, NASA asked her if 100 tampons was enough for a week https://t.co/PqPOCihyE2

I definitely had to teach a man in his 20s that we don't pee out of our vaginas.

We need better Sex Ed in this country. I can't count how many times I've been asked why I don't "just hold it in" https://t.co/Q4aXBZSqlq

I once heard a boy say that women still had periods when they were pregnant, and that women could only get their periods at the very beginning or end of the month, never in the middle.

My ex husband thought that menopause meant your uterus fell out! He’s 50. https://t.co/V0Vjx5vIyQ

One of my guy friends thought that girls could only get their periods when they were sleeping, so in high school if a girl started to fall asleep in class he would wake them up that way they wouldn’t risk being embarrassed by unexpectedly getting their period.. 😂😂 https://t.co/wtqK6Dpxs6

My ex-husband honestly believed that women had fewer ribs than men until he was in his early twenties.

I once had to inform a mid-20s cisman that he was circumcised. He thought he hadn't been. 🤯
