I leave you with a headline that needs no further explanation: Should Paid ‘Menstrual Leave’ Be a Thing?
Okay fine there is also this, from a Russian lawmaker who proposed women get two days off a month:
During that period (of menstruation), most women experience psychological and physiological discomfort. The pain for the fair sex is often so intense that it is necessary to call an ambulance … Strong pain induces heightened fatigue, reduces memory and work-competence and leads to colorful expressions of emotional discomfort.
He had to go and ruin it with the “fair sex” thing!
