How would the world look like if men had periods? Well, according to Buzzfeed, for starters tampons would be called manpons (and they’d be proudly displayed in a special sash).
Other differences: marketeers would suddenly embrace the idea of blood instead of shy away from it, as periods obviously wouldn’t be taboo anymore. Instead, we’d celebrate them and have the Periolympics. Yes, a competition where men measure who can menstruate the most.
WaterAid also imagines what would happen if men could menstruate in their #ifmenhadperiods campaign. Their funny videos have a serious underlying message: raising awareness about menstrual hygiene products. However, they’re also recommended if you just want to have a good laugh.

‘Women complain that their periods are painful. Can’t be any more painful than being around a woman on her period.’ There’s more humour, especially for those ‘poor men’ suffering from their wives and girlfriends on their periods, on Twitter accounts as Male Thoughts, Men’s Humor and Because I’m a Guy.
