How have so many of the men in that thread deluded themselves into believing cramps are the same thing as a period? The fuck? And why on earth would someone want a "simulated period," other than to fetishize female pain and discomfort?

You have to remember, these are the same fucks who think PMS makes all women bitchy and that 'cramps aren't that bad lol' because either they don't value women's pain or they only knew women who had manageable periods and period pain so they think other women are exaggerating.

They clearly think having period pains helps validate themselves into womanhood, as if that's what defines a woman ('cause they certainly don't care about sex).
