Just got a three day ban from Reddit!

I had an argument with a TiM on Reddit about this. I was polite but to the point, and I was treated like I was an idiot. But this moron believed that mensuration and a period were two different things, and that biological women menstruate but TiMs had periods because they experienced period-like symptoms. What I learned was this person’s identity was entangled in the idea that being moody once a month was experiencing a period, thus, they’re obviously a woman.

I mean...a lot of things are "period-like symptoms." I've felt moody and hungry, and had stomach aches that weren't caused by menstruation. It's like saying a headache is the same thing as brain tumor.
