There are definitely a couple good ones here.

Myka Fox @MykaFox
#IfMenHadPeriods they'd brag about the size of their tampons
11:15 AM - 6 Sep 2016

Stargaryen @Tania_Tomas
There would already be a law saying they could have a week off every month. #IfMenHadPeriods
7:22 AM - 6 Sep 2016

But, of course, we can't have fun. Why? TransWhiners. That's why.

“Ugh. Seriously. The #IfMenHadPeriods tag is vile. Trans men exist and DO have periods and cis women erasing them is not okay,”

“This tag is so cisnormative. Trans men can have periods. Menstruation is not gender exclusive,”

This is just as stupid as the SJW garbage I find on Tumblr. Arguing over stupid stuff like the "Male Gaze" or whatever.

lol 'periods are not gender exclusive' . . . ?? If they're trans then, logic dictates, they're really a genetic female. Thus yes - periods are gender exclusive. Where are these supposed males bleeding from? Their dicks?

That's a reason to go to the Dr, btw, if a guy starts bleeding from his penis.

What gets me is that this started out as an innocent little joke about how the world would be if men had periods. It had nothing whatsoever to do with targeting trans people. But no. They can't seem to help themselves.

Some people just have to find offense in everything, even in something silly like this that has nothing to do with anything. I'm not even sure I can begin to understand how #ifMenHadPeroods could possibly be offensive to anyone.

I guess no one better even dream about starting a tweet thread #ifMenCouldGetPregnant. All hell would break loose.

I believe they are talking about women who identify as men and no longer see themselves as women. Even though they still menstruate like normal healthy women, they seem to think that they are men who have periods. So, as a result, this harmless joke has now become cis norm hate speech.

The world has gone insane.

No, what actually happens is that they start feeling the effects of low hormones before they take more. So yeah, it has nothing to do with a period, but with hormones and hormones alone.

Yeah, look out ladies, you already had to raise us on your own, singlehandedly, uphill both ways in the snow, slaving over dinner in the kitchen. It only took about 8 seconds to find this one.

It's not stupid. It's just realizing, "Oh, other people exist."

Common human decency, IMO.

Gender /=/ sex.

We'll just have to agree to disagree.

Trans people exist. And pointing out that not everyone has the same body that we often associate with, man and woman, is not whining or "SJW crap". It's just pointing out what should be obvious.

Also, anyone who says "SJW" has already lost the argument. It's a nonsense term.

Yes, they in fact do exist.

No need for them to state the obvious.

Whining and getting offended over a harmless little joke such as this, that wasn't targeting trans people in any way, is the defintion of "SJW Crap".

Also, anyone who says "SJW" has already lost the argument. It's a nonsense term.

It's not a nonsense term.

What Calamity posted in the OP? Those are SJW's.

People that get so easily offended at the silliest things.

For many people, it's not obvious. In fact, there seem to be people here claiming that men cannot menstruate.

It was targeting 'men' which includes some trans people. That's kinda the point. Many of those people (in the article) seemed to be simply pointing it out, rather than whining.

It's not a nonsense term.

SJW is a made-up term. It is a set that is defined arbitrarily.

It was originally used to describe people like Gandhi or MLKJr in a positive manner. It became used as a pejorative to bash anyone who cares about social progress in any way.

That pejorative use came out of gamergate. It has added connotations that the "SJWs" don't actually care about any cause, but instead are simply being hypersensitive for personal validation.

It's a garbage term that should be torched from the zeitgeists' lexicon. Its primary purpose is to shame people for pursuing social progress.

It's not obvious to a lot of people, and people in this very thread are misgendering them and blatantly disrespecting trans people. So I felt it needed to be said.

Who's whining? Most people were merely pointing out that yes, some men have periods. The only whining I see is from the people blathering on about "SJW's"

It is very much a nonsense term. It's used to belittle anyone who cares at all about social progress. The easily offended are not the people who point out how seemingly innocuous things may be hurtful to some people, no. The easily offended are the conservatives who are offended at the very notion that their worldview is not as simple as they once believed and not everyone fits neatly in a little box, and who feel the need to hurl terms like, "SJW" around.

You're both right and you're both wrong. The wrong part is the level of seriousness being exerted over this triviality is convincing me to take it very not serious.

Perople are like 'seriousing' all over the place in this thread.

Don't get what you can't understand about that.

:roll:

Slip of the tongue and Your Star get snippy with me. You know what I meant. I was clearly referring to a genetic female.

No, I don't. You've been rather ignorant and unwilling to learn on this topic. Which, has given me concern given that I've always considered you to be pro-LGBT.

There's logic and reason (IE: the logic that someone can psychologically identify as the opposite gender they were born). . . and then there's trying to claim that males or men have periods. Come on now. It's not even a serious claim. A physical female identifies mentally as male and now doesn't seem to understand that, being a physical female, that won't change on its own.

It's not the movie The Matrix, here.

Transgendered people are NOT the physical opposite sex. It would do everyone a bit of good to stop trying to pretend as if they have SHIFTED and MORPHED and changed into the actual opposite gender overnight. They have not.

My humor still stands. #*****period

Don't take jokes too seriously - when you're old it'll be all you have left.

In fact, this whole concept in play is WHY people believe Transgendered people are MENTALLY ILL. Quit feeding those flames by agreeing with every absurd gender/sex based theory someone spins.

See, this is what I'm talking about. They're men, it's that simple. I can understand this talk from some right wing religious blowhard, but from someone who I've always considered reasonable and pro-LGBT, it's much more frustrating.
