MRA: Men can sometimes tell when women are on their periods. Therefore, feminism is exposed as a dirty lie!

From Susan Draws. (Click on the pic to go there.)

Watch out, ladies! And feminism! Because guys are totally onto you and your dirty periods. According to a study cited on the blog What Men Think of Women, men can tell when women are on their periods – just by listening to them talk! Well, some of the time, anyway. From a writeup of the research in the Times of India:

Men can actually tell from a woman’s voice when she is having her period, a new study has claimed.

For the study, conducted by Nathan Pipitone at Adams State College and Gordon Gallup from SUNY-Albany, the researchers asked three groups of men to listen to voice recordings of ten women who counted from one to five at four different points over their menstrual cycle.

According to Popular Science, all four recordings were played in a random order and then the first group of men were asked to guess which were made while the women were on their period. The tests revealed that the men were correct 35 per cent of the time, which was described as a ‘significant’ result.

That’s right, ladies! Men can tell whether or not you’re are on the rag  – a third of the time!

I myself have developed a technique that can bring this success rate to well over 50 percent – just by listening to women talk!

All you have to do is to pay attention to subtle audio clues, like her saying:

“I just started my period.”

“My period came early this month.”

“Crap. I’ve got awful craps – because of my period.”

“Aunt Flo is paying her monthly visit.” (Note: this works only if she does not actually have an Aunt Flo.)

“It’s shark week! “ (Note: This works only if it is not actually Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.)

“It’s that time of month again. The time when I use tampons, in my vagina.”

 “I have reached that point in my menstrual cycle during which blood leaks from my hoo-ha.”

So what does all this mean? According to Christian J at What Men Are Saying About Women, it means the jig is up, feminists! In a post titled How Men can Decode “Women’s” Menstrual Cycle.. , he writes:

This information is what feminist have been trying to hide, delete and deny for many a decade. They are of the opinion that the menstrual cycle is irrelevant and superfluous to their cause and one can understand why when one looks at the studies on how women are affected by it.

In the worst case scenarios, their behaviour are effected to such a degree as to make them totally dysfunctional and even bedridden for the period(intended) of the cycle. The other side of the argument is ofcourse that it is swept under the carpet and not discussed or taken seriously..

Just some added benefits from feminism, as they live in ignorant, self induced silence..

You might as well pack it in, ladies and manginas – because men know!

A third of the time.

NOTE: I have no idea why Christian J. put the word “women” in quotes in the title of his blog post. Like his now-legendary two-dot ellipses, this is a mystery that may forever remain unsolved. Or you could ask him, I guess.

EDITED TO ADD: This post has now inspired a completely disingenuous “Yahoo Answers” query from an antifeminist concern troll who seems to be pretending that this post was not DRIPPING IN SARCASM. Add your answers, if you want!

You’re a male to female transgendered person who seems pretty trapped in both emotions and tired old stereotypes. I believe you have inner resentments towards what you consider to be real women and try really hard to think that you’re a “better version”. I also believe you are carrying a really heavy emotional burden.

You are assuming a lot about a person you don’t even know. It’s also really problematic you assume things about a trans person’s identity as a cis person.

Yeah, can we not blame Magdelyn’s unpleasant personality on her trans status, please? I have no idea whether or not she’s trans, but it doesn’t matter – that’s not why she’s an asshole.

The real irony of Magdelyn’s comment is that, if we were going to go with the “women be crazy and bitchy” stereotype, I’d say that Magdelyn is just about the most consistently pissy for no good reason person who comments here other than MRAL.

(Unlike him she has demonstrated the capacity for empathy and concern for her fellow human beings in the past, though, so props for that.)

There are Communists in the funhouse

I love it! I’m so using that.

LOL! Have fun!

Yes, I am fed up right now, surfing the internet, hoping something will entertain me…however, that’s because I’m fighting off an infection, not because there are Communists in the funhouse.

Of course, I’ve heard of one GOP man who thinks “infection” and “period” are the same thing, so it’s six of one, half a dozen of another. 🙂

Kavette, can you please stop psycho-analyzing queer ppl here (trolls or not). You don’t know them, and everything you assume is based almost entirely on them being queer and your assumptions/stereotypes about that. You did the same thing previously assuming stuff about a queer woman and her relationships and threw in the “bi-curious” stereotype as your basis, and now you’re doing the same with trans women and presumed resentment of cis women. >:

I don’t care if it’s Magdelyn, or me. Stop it.

It’s not a problematic thing for a cis woman to say about a trans woman when that trans women dislikes cis woman and has shown that many times.

All my post said is should stop the hate she shows towards cis women and instead perhaps get some community.

Nothing to do with her status and everything to do with her personality. She’s trying to appeal to mra’s which is never going to work for her.

If she wasn’t trans, you wouldn’t be assuming this.

Kavette, yes it’s still problematic because it’s not based in anything except stereotypes. It’s not okay because she says or does things you (and I, for that matter) don’t like.

This is one of those times where you should take your lumps for making a mistake and back down.

Seriously?
You sound just like an MRA talking about women.
Get a fucking clue.

Also any problematic things she says are not just about CIS women. They’re about WOMEN. It’s not like the problematic things MRAs want that would hurt women doesn’t affect me just cuz I’m trans, Also Magdelyn has also said problematic things about trans women over on reddit, not that it matters, because the point is. Stop psycho-analyzing queer ppl based on stereotypes and assumptions. >:

“It’s not a problematic thing for a cis woman to say about a trans woman when that trans women dislikes cis woman and has shown that many times.”

So because she’s nasty to us and we don’t like her we should be allowed to use our privilege as cis women against her and pathologize her behavior specifically based on the area in which we have more privilege than her? No.

Kavette,

There are plenty of cis women who think the way magdelyn does.

There are plenty of cis men who think magdelyn does.

There are plenty of trans people of both genders who think the way zie does.

They are all equally gross for thinking that way, and only the trans women are given an “excuse” by you.

The problem is that the “excuse” you are using is also really gross and wrong.

Nearly everything I’ve seen Magz say that’s MRAish applies to all women, cis or trans. I’ve not seen anything from her in my memory that implies that she specifically has a problem with cis women. What she thinks is not significantly different than any other misogynist woman and we have no reason to believe at this point that she has a beef with cis women in particular, and certainly not any reason to believe it’s because she’s jealous or something. Assuming such without any evidence for that (since as I said, what Magz says applies to all women) means that you’re assuming something solely due to her trans status and that is wrong.

Exactly Kladle. As I said, it’s not like when she says “women” she adds a “except Ami and other trans women” disclaimer.

So are they studying real periods or pill periods? Both? Because I know that the doctor’s office counts those as one and the same even though one has an eggy and one does not.

Every time I read one of these “tell when she’s on her period” things I REALLY REALLY want someone to tell me if I’m on my period or not. I want someone to start paying attention and trying to pick up cues and all that. Since, you know, I’m never on my period. My mood is pretty much always the same now and I only ever bloat because I’m constipated or something. So seriously, really, I want someone to start trying to figure out when I’m on my period. So I can laugh at them. <–giant misandrist

Oh, I spot sometimes because my digestive symptoms often prevent my bcps from absorbing properly (which blows) but I haven't had anything resembling a period-period in years, even on the pill. I don't take any breaks, but the aforementioned … uh … unintentional withdrawal bleeding happens on occasion. TMI, but nothing RED has come out in quite a while, and in the last few years it's been pretty minimal. (Sometimes I can head it off by taking my next dose just 12 hours later instead of 24, but that doesn't always get me off the spot train. I don't have t3h s3cks, so the baby-stopping abilities are not a concern.)

The only thing that has been period-like in all the spottiness was the pain and acne. Ha ha ha. Always get a couple of nice, big zits. Pain stopped popping up a couple of years ago. Only took 8 freakin' years! Something in my body must have changed. I can only hope that if I have to return to ovulatin' some day, that thing will STAY changed. (Used to also get serious ovulation pain and bleeding. That was … fun. Feeling like my ovaries were exploding and expelling hoisin sauce between my shitty periods was … super.)

Ami

What do you know about my sexuality? You do know I’m married to a man and I’m (cis) female and that’s it. Life is way more complex then that and I do not in all fairness see myself as a heterosexual woman in a heterosexual relationship sexually.

In all fairness I’m old. I’ve been in pretty much any relationship combination you could have under the sun. So yes I would guess that I can come across as the knowing everything person.

I understand that is wrong, but having the lovers and friends I’ve had over the years does give you a sense of where people are coming from and Mag screams self-hate, which translates on the internet as posting against women.

I’m saying she might be reaching out by posting instead of mra boards to here.

I’ll also say that my self-identity has been problematic no matter what sexuality I’m around and is only o.k around close friends. There is no support group online for me

Really? You’re going to double down on this, and assure us that your experience is sufficient to cover this, while continuing the idiotic stereotypes? That doesn’t seem a good way to go.
