Among nonmenstruating people — those post-menopause or who use certain long-term contraceptives, for example — the study suggests many experienced breakthrough or unexpected bleeding after their Covid shots.

Nonmenstruators is a majority male group and they're saying it was many.

I wonder how many males experienced breakthrough bleeding.

Sounds dangerous.

Among nonmenstruating people … the study suggests many experienced breakthrough or unexpected bleeding after their Covid shots.

Are there male people bleeding from their genitals after shots? If there are, shouldn’t they be very worried?

this is really irresponsible.

Exactly! If these are pre-menarche girls or menopausal/perimenopausal women, or menstruating women on hormonal BC, it matters! We are being erased.

If there were, the vaccines would have been withdrawn like that.

Period-related surprises post-vaccine posed particular challenges for trans men and genderqueer people, according to the study, since some had to navigate public or workplace bathrooms after experiencing unexpected menstruation.

So when women ID as trans, they get to use the word man?

Why aren't they referred to as "clitorally enlarged menstruators"?

Or "forearm-skin-pouch-phallused menstruators"?

So I went back to Science where they got the story and then to the original study as a preprint. It's the researchers who erased women.

Thank you so much for that! Well caught. Here'a similar study that also carefully avoids the naughty 'w-' word even though it's described as 'a secondary analysis of a retrospective online survey titled “The Covid-19 Pandemic and Women’s Reproductive Health”':

I feel like the blood in my veins is running ice. We are being erased as a biological sex, and this is done by young women. Had you asked me if this was one possible future ten years ago, I would have judged you nuts.

One of the researchers is a graduate teaching assistant whose list of research topics includes alphabet soup, so that's probably why. Also, the main researcher is not a medical one, either, though on faculty at a medical school.
