I don't understand why some people are so skittish about periods. Maybe it's because I'm a female and I have to deal with it, but some people seem to overreact.

For some reason, FML has the saltiest people on this site. Say anything and you'll most likely get downvoted for some reason. Just like this comment will probably get downvoted to hell.

It's not you, you're mature. If a person can't handle the idea of a period, then they can't handle sexual activity, or, in general, a romantic partner. There really isn't any excuse for being immature about them, as they're natural, uncontrollable, and half the world gets them. I wouldn't affiliate myself with anyone who can't be comfortable with them.

I used to vaguely know a guy at uni who would have done exactly this - he didn't let his long term girlfriend stay over if she was on her period. Not that he didn't want to have sex, just sleeping in his bed. We pointed out that he was being a complete dick and he kind of laughed it off in a 'hurr durr' way. They had been together since childhood so I think the girlfriend was hoping to change him, she just put up with it like oh silly boys hehe, what's he like, how a mother might talk about a horrible child. He's now a doctor!!

As a Scot, I can confirm we just call them periods in the Highlands. Nicknames can be Aunt Flo (Aunt Flo is visiting me), Mother Natures Gift, The Red Sea, The Painters (the painters are in). I've been around all of Scotland and I've never heard any other name for periods, other than a period, or occasionally, menstruating/menstrual cycle.

Even if he was genuinely grossed out by it there was no reason to react so idiotically. He couldn't even see or touch it, if it's that bad how does he cope with the idea that there's blood circulating around his girlfriend's body too?

But some people just feel grossed out, you cant blame them. Its also really hypocritical to say that if you are also afraid or grossed out of the thought of bugs or something crawling around you when youre sleeping. Its like saying" you live in a middle class home, you dont have to worry about bugs as much as poor people do, and you dont see them complaining."

To follow your analogy through... what if a rich person went to a poor person's home, found out there were a few bugs in the next room that the poor person was doing their best to catch and dispose of, and threw a massive childish fit about it. Is that okay?

But when you come across your phobia do you behave with maximum insensitivity to the person triggering it or do you gently explain and remove yourself from the situation?

What so they shout 'EW' and leap away in terror every time they change their tampon? Do you think this lady would have still posted this FML if her boyfriend had told her it was a debilitating phobia for him and had behaved this way around blood before? I think you're trying way too hard to explain away his immaturity.

No one shouted ew or leap away he just made a biose and fell of the bed. I honestly doubt she asked him to explain and he didn't want to argue. But i am interested that you think women can leap away from thier own vaginas.

Metalcrazed, they were referring to the fact that you claimed you knew women who are so phobic of blood that they're afraid of their own periods. The point being... How is that possible? Would they panic every time they went to the bathroom? It makes no sense.
