If men could menstruate

I love this video

One girl commented on the video saying,

“Sad thing is… This is how it would happen! Guys would turn periods into something cool! Make funny nicknames, and it would be like a status thing!!!! Lol I frickin love this video!!!”

Her comment reminded me of this quote by Gloria Steinem in 1978 that I read recently,

“If men menstruated, it would become an enviable, boast-worthy, masculine event: Men would brag about how long and how much. Boys would mark the onset of menses, that longed-for proof of manhood, with religious ritual and stag parties. Congress would fund a National Institute of Dysmenorrhea to help stamp out monthly discomforts. Sanitary supplies would be federally funded and free…”
