WaterAid, an international organization has been helping people get access to drinkable water and the most basic sanitarian’s. In their most recent campaign, they’ve decided to warn everyone over the fact that more than a billion women world-wide don’t have any access to a bathroom, nor do they have any cleaning supplies, most of which are necessary during their periods.
Aware of the fact that everyone’s attitude towards periods would be completely different if men had them instead of women, about 2000 people were asked how they would see the world. The following things were mentioned the most, and although you might find them funny, they should remind you of the main reason of the cause:
Monthly bleeding’s would become a sign of manliness
There would be nothing wrong with having a period. Men all over the globe would talk about them as if they were nothing serious at work. Also, they would congratulate one another for going through a very tough couple of days.
Periods would be celebrated
Many cultures around the globe would celebrate the first period of a young boy, as it would be his formal entrance to an adulthood, which would all be concluded with a special ceremony.
Nobody would be ashamed to call them ‘periods’
In France, they call it “strawberry season”, while Belgians call them “Marrys”. Today’s people use different kinds of words to avoid using the actual word ‘period’ because it’s simply not accepted in every society. If men had periods, none of them would be ashamed – they would actually be proud to call them that way.
Athletes would take them seriously
Periods would become a true science in the world of sports. Coaches would demand from their players to live together in order to adapt their periods before big games. Also, betting houses would be more concerned over the odds themselves.
Having access to hygienic stuff would become a human right
Tampons and sanitary towels would both become available in every health insurance package and every single first aid kit. Those two things would slowly become the most basic things for a human, because no man should live without a tampon/towel, right?
Scientists would help create tampons and sanitary towels
Men would stand in lines to try out the newest 5-layered tampons designed by NASA. When it comes to commercials, James Bond would surely love to endorse sanitary towels.
