Aunt Flo waits for no one. There comes a time in every relationship when she will bust in the doors, and you will be tasked with the sacred, late-night convenience store run. 
Too often, it’s this classic scenario: the boyfriend gets squicked out by having to even make eye contact with a floral pad box in the aisle of a Duane Reade. But at least there are others who have their heart in the right place, even if they juuuust miss the mark. Twitter user @broganpaget posted this text exchange with her BF who’s a little confused, but got the spirit. 

Of course, this is probably some witty banter, and a way to ask which type she prefers. But surprisingly, after the tweet went viral, instead of just clowning the guy, a genuine conversation started in the replies about the lack of knowledge men are taught about menstrual products, and periods in general. 

lmfao THIS IS A REAL QUESTION THOUGH!

The different colours represent the different sizes depending on if the womans period is a heavy flow or a light flow. Heavy flow periods need to have more material in order to absorb the blood which is why the box has 3 tears on it instead of the lighter flow box which has 2🙂👍

Guys need education on this stuff. It’s important

The thing is though that if you’re in a relationship like the boyfriend here it’s actually a nice thing to care about your lady and help her with that kind of stuff. Also, being educated about the opposite sex is healthy and normal

the amount of times I had to get them for my wife. If a guy can`t do that for his wife/ girlfriend/ partner. then they should take a look at themselves

But it lead to many people screenshotting the conversation and sending them to their male partners, and man, are these answers kinda sad. Makes you almost want to put up a big billboard that says “IT’S THE 21ST CENTURY AND GOOGLE IS FREE.” 

Men, if you don’t menstruate (because there are men that do), you’ve got to step it up. Your confusion and discomfort when faced with menstrual products is just another casual contribution to period stigma. But the good news is that you can show that you trust and support your partner by being open about that time of the month, and yes, by going out in public to purchase tampons.
The resources are out there! You can always look up information on what different tampon marketing words mean (no, tampon “size” does not have anything to do with the size of someone’s vagina.) Or you could, ya know, just ask your partner to be specific on what brand, size, type of tampon they want. I guarantee they will have a preference, they’ve been doing this their whole lives. 
But seriously, no one should be using scented tampons. Leave the flavors to the condoms, okay?
