There’s a good reason why men shouldn’t be allowed to make decisions about women’s bodies or healthcare.
Although not all men are ridiculously ignorant about how women bodies function, so far, too many are, and it's not necessarily their fault.
Our sex education programs are becoming less ideal, and they really need a reformation.
However, there’s a basic knowledge of biology everyone needs to understand, whether you’re a man or a woman, before saying anything about women’s healthcare. Or about women’s bodies.
Often, most girls going through puberty are being left to figure out on their own the changes happening in their bodies, the meaning of consent, reproductive health, and the logistics of their sexual organs.
So, men are becoming even more clueless concerning the inner working of the female bodies.
In many instances, some legislators are making ridiculous laws about females’ bodies. Several years back, a male legislator, Todd Akin, commented that during rape, “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,”
Since an early age, it’s inexcusable for men not to know anything about how women’s bodies function. And this issue inspired one mom and writer to seek to understand what most men think about women bodies.
In her forum, @brownandbella decided to start a female’s talk on Twitter about how men view women’s’ bodies.
She asked women to share the dumbest thing a man has ever said to them about sex, reproductive health, menstruation, among others, and female Twitter users did not disappoint.
“Women, what is the dumbest thing a man ever said to you about sex, reproductive health, menstruation, etc.? Reply with a comment below, no quote RTs.”
“Let’s laugh at these dummies together!”
The responses will make you laugh and perhaps scratch your head.
