Chiropractor & menstrual lipstick???

  1. A Male Chiropractor Wants Women To Use Controversal Methods To Contain Menstrual Flow

    Forbes Welcome

    It's from forbes' website, so it should be a reliable source. He mentions that women haven't been creative enough to deal with menses & the only methods are pads & tampons... or as he says" "diaper and a plug"....

    Just curious if anyone heard of this before? I don't really have any thoughts/opinion to share. I would probably respond not very nicely to this guy...

    I think I have officially seen everything. Besides, if post-infibulation women are speaking truth, it's excruciating to keep blood trapped in there.

    Given that the opinionator is a male and therefore 99.9% likely to have never menstruated in his lifetime, I wouldn't give a lot of credibility to anything he has to say on the matter.

    And chiropractors wonder why they're not taken seriously as health professionals ...

    This was my favorite part:

    He easily corroborated this charge in a response to one visitor's comment on the Mensez Facebook page, in which he explained that “[Y]ou as a woman should have come up with a better solution than diapers and plugs, but you didn’t. Reason being women are focused on and distracted by your period 25% of the time, making them far less productive than they could be. Women tend to be far more creative than men, but their periods that [sic] stifle them and play with their heads.” Dopps added over the phone that “a lot of the LGBT community, lesbians in particular, are furious at me because I’m a white straight man.” It’s unclear where he got this notion, considering that people of varying ethnicities, sexual orientations and genders have taken issue with the Mensez concept, including heterosexual, cisgendered folks. “My receptionist is a lesbian,” Dopps added, implying that this proves he’s not sexist.

    Darn menstruation!! If only we weren't distracted by our pesky periods, women could rule the world!

    This reminds me of a quote by Ina May Gaskin, one of my favorite people:
    "There is no other organ quite like the uterus. If men had such an organ they would brag about it. So should we."

    This product would be most useful if applied to the lips of its inventor. SMH

    If MEN had a uterus and periods, 'The Red Tent' concept would be foremost among a man's Civil Rights, and days spent in said 'Tent" were accommodated, without derogatory comment, by all employers.
