There are lots of men who think that the female reproductive system is strange and mysterious, but really that’s because they haven’t bothered to learn anything about it. And sure, Sex Ed can always be improved…but some of the stuff these guys get wrong is so basic and so easily Google-able that schools can only take part of the blame. But rather than inform themselves, some dudes are content to believe that periods are caused by an evil wizard that lives inside the uterus.

Think that’s hyperbole? Sadly, it’s really not. Recently, Twitter user @brownandbella asked women to share the craziest beliefs men have shared about women’s bodies…

And here are 15 of the best (worst) responses. (via Bored Panda)


1. To be fair, his ex is the Easter Bunny

2. These are literally rocket scientists we’re talking about.

3. It’s a period, not an ellipsis.

4. For some reason, he’s never been able to test this theory.

5. I confuse women with werewolves all the time, too.

6. Next, you’ll tell me talking frogs don’t drink Budweiser.

7. Maybe some day they will invent a cordless baby.

8. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me 156 times, shame on…still me.

9. Tip: menstruation does not work the same way as a VCR.

10. Don’t wake the baby!

11. Where do we even start with this one?

12. If that were true, I would’ve had two periods already today. (Damn you Carl’s Jr.)

13. Hmm, wonder why this couple didn’t make it.

14. This is exactly why we have Sex Ed.

15. And finally, a sweet one!
