From time to time, you will have one person – springing out of nowhere to dismiss women’s pain and struggles.
Like this guy who put a picture of his scraped knees and said that he doesn’t want to hear about period pain until women go through such injuries.
Until women experience this, I don’t wanna hear about period pains. pic.twitter.com/8Bgr7Ivyy6— 🧨❌ (@__sargee) March 15, 2019
Two points to make here:
1. How does he know how much period cramps hurt?
2. Why did he assume we have never got our knees scraped?
I was 8 when I got my first turf burn on my knee. 20 yrs later, I still bear the scar. In HS I got a spike in my back. I’ve broken my thumb, gotten burned, and more. Yet NONE of those compared to my cramps from periods, which has made me pass out before. Sorry you’re a wimp— Groovy Tasia 🎮🕹 (@TasiaBass28) March 16, 2019
Anyhow, people on Twitter put him in place soon with sarcastic remarks and some biology lessons that he seems to have missed in school.
You do realize that every single match of the 2015 Women’s World Cup was played on artificial turf, right?— Christopher Gerstle (@CGerstle) March 15, 2019

LMAO. “I don’t want to hear any woman talk about period pain. This professional athlete skinned his kmees”— Kyle 🌱 (@KylePlantEmoji) March 16, 2019
if men think skinned knees hurt that bad they should experience idk something like a skinned internal organ ripped out every single month all the bleeding and cramps and groin pain— capitu marvel (@pircesinha) March 17, 2019
This is…. nothing? Like you think turf burn is bad? Oh my sweet summer child.— Katelyn Burns (@transscribe) March 16, 2019
After this post I just hope natural selection does its job and your genes stay in this generation.— Hex (@Parachutin_Link) March 16, 2019
I couldn't help but comment, I'm a man and what this person posted makes me sick, completely disjointed from reality, this is the ugly side of Internet freedom.— Hex (@Parachutin_Link) March 16, 2019
I don’t understand. Do you think women don’t play sports, or women are invulnerable? What’s the point you’re trying to make here? I know that you’re wrong, I just want to know how wrong.— Alexandra Erin (@alexandraerin) March 17, 2019
It really sucks that every man suffers from this monthly without even having to play soccer. 🙁— Dmitriy Kolesnikov (@NanoHydraulic) March 17, 2019
