High school biology doesn't teach guys how to understand women. But it at least gives them an idea of how their bodies work. Pass that and you won't infuriate your girlfriend by telling her to "keep it in" when she asks you to buy her some tampons. Recently, Twitter user @brownandbella asked women to share the most ridiculous things they've heard men say about "sex, reproductive health, menstruation, etc" and BOY did they deliver! As of this article, the thread already has nearly 20K upvotes and over 3.5K comments, many of which will make you wonder if men are really that stupid or are they just being dicks. Maybe the first, maybe the latter, maybe a bit of both.

Almost a quarter of men have admitted that they have "no idea" what a pelvic floor is or what it is supposed to do. About 1 in 20 believe it's just another name for your pelvis and some even think it's a dance move. A new study has confirmed that men really are clueless when it comes to their female partner's body.

The study, released by pelvic floor experts INNOVO, found that nearly 4 in 10 men don't feel comfortable talking to women about it, too. 4 in 10 men also admit they have no understanding about the health issues their wife or girlfriend faces and are stumped when it comes to the length of their period.

Periods can be a horror show for sure. Cramps, messy underwear, acne, bloating, not to mention the mood swings.

The same magical 4 in 10 men don't feel comfortable talking to women about intimate health issues and as a result, more than a third try to avoid all conversations with their partner about subjects such as periods, intimate screening tests, and even sex.

"Intimate health issues can be a difficult subject for many to discuss," Jane Wake, women's health and fitness expert, said. "'It may be funny to think men have no idea what a pelvic floor is or does, but it's a subject which needs to be taken seriously – especially as men also have a pelvic floor and can suffer the same problems as women."

Either he has a very small penis or thinks tampons are far bigger than they are. Either way.... wow.

Jane added that both men and women find it embarrassing to discuss their private health concerns with someone of the opposite sex, even if it is their own partner, but that being as open as possible with each other is the best way to gradually break down the taboo.

When I was about 14, over 20 years ago, I was reading the problem page in a teen magazine. A girl had written a letter, in a total panic, because her periods weren't blue. She thought she had some terrible disease.

As a young girl who hadn't had " the talk" yet, we knew my girlfriend would give us the facts. Her parents were Doctors! Well, she said.." First you lay this egg... suggesting it was size of an ostrich egg( made sense), and then you bleed for about a week. You also grow hair in weird places. It's called PUBLIC HAIR! At that point we all swore we would just get to a Nunnery!! Somehow, reality reached us by high school.

I vaguely remember a post on "I used to believe.com where someone once thought that the discarded endometrium aka the blood and blood clots were pieces of the "baby." Such as maybe one of their feet or hands. Keep in mind, this was a thought when the person was 13 and had just started her period.

When Vice President Pence was governor of Indiana, he signed legislation that would force women to bury or have cremated *all* miscarriages and aborted fetuses. The courts blocked that particular part of the bill, the rest of which was not especially as whacked out as that part. The proponents of that part are continuing to try to get it unblocked. Hundreds, maybe thousands of women sent used menstrual pads and tampons to Pence's office so that they could be microscopically examined to find the zygotes and embryos that had been stopped before the woman was even aware that fertilization had even taken place. The measure was declared unconstitutional a year ago.

but every egg can develop into a child, that's just science, he may not have been trying to be judgmental, he may just have been talking bigger picture. Every egg that is released from your body is a 'potential' child that will never live now, it's not anyone's fault, it isn't a religious thing, it just IS....I wonder about what my children may have been like if I had given birth to each...would that egg have produced a scientist? a dancer? a drug addict? blue eyes? brown hair? it isn't a hit at anyone's choices to wonder and explore feelings.

Actually kinda true when you're trying to conceive : not a "dead" baby, but a "baby not happening"... :-/

Uwe Theiss

Based on that a dead girl is 400 "baby not happening" and because a baby could be also female it is infinite babies not happening. If you look at male masturbation it gets into the millions with only one masturbation. So it is kind of stupid to think about.
