Colton Underwood Acts Disgusted By Concept of Women’s Period Underwear
I have previously defended this Underwood guy when he was being mocked by people online for being a virgin into adulthood. Nobody should be shaming people for being virgins.
However, I refuse to defend Underwood on this one.
I have no patience for men who act “grossed out” and immature over women’s periods and all that accompany them.
Men are not the ones who have to deal with the actual inconveniences and physical pains accompanied by periods, which usually last for around five or six days every month out of every year.
Women cannot control when or if we get periods. We cannot help if the period blood leaks and stains our bed-sheets, pants, shorts, or skirts – those are just some of the realities women have to contend with when getting a period monthly.
(Some men are so stupid about how periods work, they seriously do not know how long periods last or how often women get them, which is why I mention that.)
Underwood, like countless men, don’t understand the practical realities of living with a period.
You don’t simply throw out a pair of underwear if you get some period blood on it – you toss it in the washer and clean it and re-use it.
It would be too expensive to continually buy new underwear if every time you put a pair on it becomes soiled by period blood.
Colton Underwood left many women shaking their heads after expressing his confusion over menstruation during a round of “Ask Me Anything” on LadyGang.
Cohost Keltie Knight asked the Bachelor alum, 27, whether he notices if a girlfriend is “wearing a cute underwear or, like, a period underwear.” He appeared to be surprised that the latter exists, prompting Becca Tobin to explain that “girls have special underwear that’s designated for your time of the month.”
