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.

There should be mandatory sex-ed for everyone, that we wouldn't be oblivious for specifics of each gender

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.

Damn monthly subscriptions. Never can stop them. I hear you can pause them for 9 months, but it is SO not worth it.

"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.

This is actually true minus the size. Our ovaries release an egg (sometimes more on accident ex: twins) every month and when we don't get pregnant, thus causing a period, the egg is expelled with our period. We just don't notice it because it is so damn tiny. So yes essentially we lay an egg every month 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Thank you. And the education that this person must have had has led to a slight misunderstanding of the situation. The poster makes it sound like he was completely wrong. Perhaps showing up her own lack of knowledge.

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.

This is the reason why there needs to be better education on the subject in schools. I know too many people who had parents who didn't tell them and they relied on playground 'facts' from friends.
