A huge social media video victory for a British menstrual pad manufacturer. You'll be glad you watched this.
Periods! Men get all twisted about periods. Always. Even as our culture gets more open about the realities of a woman's monthly cycle, men still get weirded out, upset and grossed out by periods. Not me. As The Kids in the Hall once put it, I have a good attitude towards menstruation.
British guy Richard Neill does not. Or at least he doesn't have a good attitude towards the kinds of things he sees in tampon and pad commercials, which he thinks are deceiving. He left this note on the Facebook page of Bodyshapes, a British pad company. It quickly went viral.
Oh ho ho. Wimmin be menstruatin'.
Bodyshapes did something amazing, though. They made the video embedded above, which is just absolutely hilarious and fantastic and honest.
