The men out there need to listen up and listen good. For years, the ladies in our lives have been trying to tell us how painful their menstrual cramps are (some worse than others), and a lot of guys have waved it off and blamed it on women being overdramatic. Sure, a lot of men acknowledge that period cramps are probably uncomfortable, but now every single one of you who has downplayed the actual pain women go through needs to step up and admit you’ve been wrong FOR YEARS.
Doctors are finally saying that menstrual cramps are “almost as bad as having a heart attack.” That’s seriously intense, and if you’ve been one of the deniers, then SHAME ON YOU. As is typical in our social-media-filled lives these days, people took to Twitter to respond to the news, men and women.
And you know some good Twitter videos rolled in as well.

So the next time a lady in your life complains about her cramps, remember to keep your mouth shut and HELP them out as much as you can. Because they are hurting.
