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.

I guess these people who say women lie about childbirth believe that our doctors hand out a pamphlet on this vast conspiracy when they confirm a pregnancy. 😂

Because sperm can ENTER a uterus, but not swim uphill? Isn't that their entire life's goal? What an idiot. And childbirth pain? Fucking hell - I'd rather have a root canal with no anesthetic than go through natural (too late for drugs) childbirth again. "It's equal to kidney stones?" Fuck you pussies.

I don't understand how people form an opinion about something they have not or will be going through. This guy is a good candidate for the ancient Egyptian birthing practice, where the wife grabs the husbands testicles during child birth so that both can "experience" it..

A good male friend had to have TWO wisdom teeth removed, was allergic to the two anesthetics they tried (cue trip to the hospital for that) they ended up having to remove them without any pain relief due to a couple of other complications (septis? was setting in) AND then his pregnant wife needed a wisdom tooth out - too pregnant to have anesthetics, she was telling us the pain was comparable to a later stage contraction....

Of course you cannot get pregnant if the woman is on top, like on the top floor. And you are on the bottom floor, alone..

Valerie Linares

Wow, I'm a woman who has never been pregnant. However, the notion that a man would accuse women of lying about the pain of childbirth just pisses me off. Like, how dare you accuse someone of lying on a subject you know nothing about! HOW DARE YOU! That's arrogant ignorance to the umphth degree if I ever saw it!

After having two kids, considering the range of pain from 1 to 10, I would put labor and delivery around 45.

You can’t get her pregnant if she’s on top but only if you’re in one of those carnival rides that spin you so fast you’re stuck against the wall. Override the speed on that bad boy. Your semen will either die or shoot back inside you from the Gs. Reverse the positions and she’ll for sure get pregnant. Patent pending

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.
