If men had periods, the entire world would definitely hear about it.
Rules in the high-profile sporting world might change to adjust for cramps, and tampons would be carried with pride instead of stuffed away.
Although generations of women are told by mainstream culture the menstrual cycle is a shameful subject, men would be congratulated on their manliness.
At least, that’s the way UK organization WaterAid sees it.
In an effort to raise awareness for its “Make It Happen” petition, which aims to install running water and toilets for the estimated 1.25 billion women who suffer through menstruation without it, WaterAid imagines what the world – and tampon commercials – would be like “if men had periods.”
