As men our mothers do not talk to us about what PERIODS are and share their experiences. It is forbidden by an invisible god that has over powered our abilities to think for ourselves. To really understand what it really is. I am guilty of it aswell and I decided it had to end. As men we need to ask , learn and try to understand, what periods for women really is like. If I cannot empathize we cannot decide for someone else what she can do or not. PERIOD.
