Why did I keep scrolling through that feed? I just discovered that TIMs suffer more during "menopause" than we do.

I'm actually IN peri right now, so I have to say, I'm both surprised and saddened to learn of all these poor men who are essentially hemorrhaging for a week or longer every 2-8 weeks (give or take a few weeks) and gushing blood every time they move. I feel sorry for them that they're passing fist-sized clots out of their -- what, their girlcocks or their anuses? Honestly, it's anyone's guess, but as someone who also passes clots like that, I know it's both disconcerting and rather disgusting. I sure hope they've learned my trick of sleeping on chux pads so that I don't soak my mattress in blood.

There are, of course, a host of other symptoms (and increased disease risks) associated with this extremely natural, normal bodily process.

Except ... in the case of a TIM, none of this is natural or normal. It's all just medically induced misery they use to get off while actual menopausal women suffer as they've always done because researchers don't actually give a shit about helping.
