Last week, Twitter user @__sargee attempted to explain that period cramps are nothing compared to skinning your knees during soccer. He was even kind enough to provide photographic evidence! According to sargee, until a woman feels the pain of a scraped knee, she shouldn't complain about her period.
PS -- @_sargee's Twitter account is now private.
Sargee assumes that A) Women have never injured themselves while playing sports (we have) and B) He knows what cramps actually feel like (he doesn’t).
Dear sargee learned the hard way that a man should never try to explain periods to women in the same way another guy tried to explain the cost of periods to women (nine periods per year/ seven tampons per cycle). Get outta here, guy.
Unsurprisingly, the women who responded to his comments showed a tremendous amount of restraint.
