Today, we were doing research on contraceptives in class. Afterwards, the girl next to me starts explaining how "cringey" and "grossed out" she gets when she sees/hears "the words for the private parts." She then tells me all about her getting her period that morning in explicit detail. FML

Some people are just special kind of special...

Please tell me she cringed and actually twitched every time she said the names for her private parts.

Actually, I think that would've been pretty amusing.

Hey, if the girl tries to come anywhere near OP again, they have a weapon to keep her away! Simply muttering "penis" or "******" under your breath would probably do the trick.

I had a friend who got grossed out if someone said the word "fart" or made a fart noise but told me, in detail, about her period clots or the smell of her ****** or about a nasty **** she watched. There's a reason I stopped talking to the gross bitch.

She reminds me of Elliot from Scrubs

I would of kept repeating the things she didn't like hearing until she moved away.

"would have" - not "would of".

I guess you didnt enjoy that specific period eh.

People that talk about their menstrual cycle like that are just disgusting, Period.

Why is it so disgusting to talk about a natural thing? I talk to my friends about my period, and my boyfriend doesn't mind when I talk to him about it either. Just because I have a period, I should be ashamed and keep it secret? I know there's a matter of knowing your audience, but simply talking about it is no crime.

I was just doing it for the sake of the pun. No need to ovary-act.

Well the first pun was used terribly. But gotta admit that one made me laugh. Nice one :)

#17 Yeah but people should make sure other people are okay with it. It sounds it made OP uncomfortable. It's not something you talk to people you don't know really well unless they're a doctor or other medical professional, like a nurse. Obviously, your friends are okay and boyfriend are okay with it so that's fine.

#25, that's why I said there's a matter of knowing your audience :) But talking about a period should not be considered disgusting in and of itself, since it's completely natural, like pregnancy and breast feeding. That was just my humble opinion on the original commenter's comment, not OP's situation. Cheers!

I sometimes refer to vaginas as "coochies". It makes everything about them sound more vulgar. I think it's fun.

Obviously you BOTH need to grow up.

I agree, why? I felt this FML was more pointing out her hypocrisy, rather than op being disgusted by her period talk.

Why is there a chili pepper next to some usernames? Did I miss where that was explained? (I'm on the app with the latest update.)

It means they are NSFW (not suitable for work). They put in a whole section for them.

The FML keep appearing twice for me, is that a bug on the website?
