Only Women Menstruate. Period.

Daily Signal:

The False Hope of the Transgender Language Police.

A friend of mine has an amusing tale of a heated fight she got in as a child with her then-teenage brothers that culminated in her accusing them of getting periods.

Needless to say, my friend didn’t end up with the upper hand in that particular sibling squabble.

But maybe she was just ahead of her time with her gender-neutral vision on periods.

Always, a brand of period pads, recently announced it will take the Venus symbol off its products. Always is “committed to diversity and inclusion and are on a continual journey to understand the needs of all of our consumers,” the brand noted in a statement.

Because in 2019, it’s apparently controversial to say that only women get periods.

For years, woke activists have been pushing for language to shift on the issues of periods and pregnancy. Thinx, a brand of underwear designed to be worn during periods, apologized during “Transgender Awareness Week” in 2015 for focusing too much on women. 

“We feel it is our responsibility to send a reminder that menstruation is not a trait of, nor a defining factor of, a specific gender. It is something that can occur amongst all people,” the brand wrote at the time.  

Two years later, Glamour magazine approvingly covered the open-mindedness of new menstruation products company Aunt Flow: “There’s also the recognition that it’s not just cisgender women who get periods: Trans men and people who don’t identify as one gender get them too, so the company has eliminated the gendered pronouns of her and she from their materials.” 

In 2016, the Twitter hashtag #IfMenHadPeriods was controversial—for suggesting that men didn’t have periods.

Of course Planned Parenthood has jumped on the bandwagon, too, carefully talking about periods on its site in a gender-neutral way: “Not everybody who gets a period identifies as a girl or woman. Transgender men and genderqueer people who have uteruses, vaginas, fallopian tubes, and ovaries also get their periods.” read more

  1. We always used to have male gym teachers, boys and girls. Mr.Bonato told one girl that if she’s on her period one more time his month then she’s gonna bleed to death…she couldn’t climb a rope….

  2. LET THE HATE BEGIN!!!! It’s just this kind of sexist,homophobic, anti-BLTQZXY offensive content I i have come to expect from the contributors to this site. Men can have periods too! I saw it on the interwebs and I know it’s true!!!! You people here at iOTWreport nothing but bigots and losers! Especially the chick with the bondage name… Aklestraps or something, whatever…probably a closet pervert or something… and who names themselves after a hat?. Sick, sick people.

  3. @Al…. sorry… I would have thought the BLTQZXY portion of my post would have revealed my intent. 🙂

  4. But I can write my name in the snow without looking like a hula dancer. (Don’t ask how I know these things, I used to drink a lot)

  5. @The Claw of Bluegrass — We ARE sick, sick people!! And so few real trolls because of it. Such a shame, too. They’re so fun to play with.

  6. @Joe6Pak — What a vision! An abortionist from the Gosnel School of Medicine fishing around in there and pulling out . . . a little bit of liver . . . a piece of prostate . . . a ureter and a blob of kidney. Ewwww!

  7. Most things are two-dimensional;


    Wanting to force a two-dimensional world into a multi-dimensional world is a provocation best left to a numb-minded soothsayer.

  8. Wow. Really, really miss the days of sanity when discussing details of this subject in normal mixed company was TMI. *sigh*
    Nothing normal about LGBTQXYZ deviants.
    The left has destroyed dignity and decent social norms in the world.

  9. I can’t believe it even has to be said.

    I also agree with 99th, I miss the days not that long ago when men and women were embarrassed when a commercial came on for Kotex while they were in the same room.

    I am so glad my kids are grown I can’t imagine having to be a parent today and having to explain why little Tommy is in a dress or why Tommy and Johnny are kissing each other at the grocery store or having their young son come to them and ask what a period is and if he’s going to get one when they see or hear about the commercial with the little boy’s Father telling him he got his period.

    The only thing that keeps me from going mad is my faith in knowing these people are going to pay a dear price one day.

  10. OT – But: May I admit it today? I thank my lucky stars daily that Mrs. Deranged and I found this site years ago AND ALSO FOR ALMOST ALL THOSE WHO COMMENT HERE! All of you never fail to provide me a beautifully balanced mental meal! I’d likely starve in today’s world without you!

  11. Was asked to pick up some of those ‘thingies’ once. Got to the store, was so confused. When in doubt, went with the ‘quicker picker upper’.
    Since then, being single is pretty good,,,

    Nods to forci, I know what you mean!

  12. The problem is semantics.

    “Gender” is meaningless in terms of human sexuality, event though the nihilists would have us “think” otherwise. “Gender” (ad nauseam) is a grammatical term which has been misappropriated by the totalitarians to sow discord. I know that everybody knows this, but it needs to be said and repeated until the nihilistic totalitarians relent. There are too many ignorant stooges who don’t know the difference between “gender” and “sex” that a concerted effort must be made to illuminate.

    Knowledge is Power: and words are the means of delivery.

  13. Alice Cooper sang “Only Women Bleed” back in the early seventies. Ever since first hearing it, I have believed it.

    Thank you for sharing your wisdom, Mr. Cooper.

  14. Nods to the married, you’ve learned first hand about this.
    Wish I could say the same, I think, never been their.
    What I have learned is that the ‘term’ “bitch”,,
    applies more to men than woman,,
    Now about the C word thingie,,,
    Will never be as great as the Big pretzel guy,,,
