The price of tampons and pads seriously adds up over time, which seems incredibly unfair. Here’s a bodily function that half the population has no choice but to pay for, and the other half doesn’t!
In news that will surprise no one, a man took to the internet to give his opinion on the price of tampons and pads and why women should “stop complaining.”

This man did some hilariously wrong math to determine that women only spend about £20 per year for tampons.
7 tampons a cycle, 9 periods a year I am howling this man rlly tried so hard to sound smart without knowing a single (not one) thing https://t.co/DjYNbJx61H

Anyone with a period immediately smelled the bullsh*t.

First of all, SEVEN tampons per cycle?! Only in a dream world, pal.
I cannae express how much I wish I only had 9 periods a year and only needed 7 tampons per period, the dream

Second of all, he flubbed the NUMBER OF MONTHS IN A YEAR.
but how did he think there were 9 months in a year pic.twitter.com/5zfaB5E9oz

He almost certainly mixed up the period thing with the pregnancy thing.
I can only think that he confused it with how long women are pregnant for ??♀️

Anyway, third of all, he also got the average volume of blood per period wrong.
The average number is 35ml-45ml. So literally the only thing he got right was how many days are in a week.

It’s actually impressive to be this wrong!
Coffee or tampons? That's the choice? Ok, I choose coffee. He'd better hope he doesn't sit in my seat when I get off the bus ?

Even well-meaning men are oblivious about periods and tampons.
Meanwhile, I asked my bf to bring me some tampons because my cramps were so bad that I couldn’t get out of bed. Dude brings me this and says “this should last you at least for this week, right?” pic.twitter.com/38v96YoPPv

The only solution is to teach ’em a lesson.
I wish we could let men try having a vagina and period at least once in their life so they know.

That will shut this guy up forever.
