Women Are Sharing The Dumbest Things Men Have Said About Their Bodies And That’s It, I’m Calling The Cops

The American sex education system is…less than ideal.

Girls going through puberty are often left to figure out changing bodies, reproductive health, the meaning of consent and the logistics of their sexual organs all on their own. Meaning men are even more clueless when it comes to the inner workings of the female body.

And yet, in today’s day and age, it’s pretty inexcusable for men to know nothing at all about women’s bodies. Which is why writer and mom @brownandbella decided to start a conversation with a tweet prompting people with uteruses to share the dumbest things men have said to them concerning their bodies.

“Women, what is the dumbest thing a man ever said to you about sex, reproductive health, menstruation, etc? Let’s laugh at these dummies together!” she wrote.

And boy, did we laugh! We laughed and laughed until we cried upon realizing how many tweet replies detailed beyond ignorant suggestions from medical professionals and other males in position of power.

She followed it up with her own confounding story:

Over 3,500 women replies to Genève’s call for ignorant comments—and each story is more hilarious (and equally depressing) than the last.

Genève followed up her thread the following day by reminding Twitter that many of our male politicians know as much about women’s bodies as the men described in her replies.
