DISPOSING OF A TAMPON AT SOMEBODY ELSE’S HOUSE
If we’re at a public venue, or our girlfriend’s house—fine. But when we’re staying at our boyfriend’s place and have to dispose of a tampon in his trash can, no matter how much toilet paper we wrap it up in, we know he’ll see it when he takes the trash out. Either that or we put it in your purse. Which sometimes we do and regret.
FEELING ON DISPLAY IN WORKOUT CLOTHES
It’s not our fault that the easiest clothes to work out in lift up our butts and our boobs! But there is almost no way we can jog down the street without looking like we want attention.
HAVING OUR UNDERWIRE BURST THROUGH
Not only is that $30 to $60 down the drain, but we spend the rest of the day with a wire poking, chafing, and even cutting our boob.
REMEMBERING TO TAKE THE PILL
If you forget to take your vitamin for a couple of days, no big deal. But if we forget to take our pill for a couple of days, we might have to go off it entirely for a whole month, which means telling our boyfriendwe have to use condoms again because we were a teensy bit forgetful. And we just wasted the money on that pack of birth control.
THE PRICE DISCREPANCY BETWEEN BRAS AND UNDERWEAR
In case men don’t know, they need to know: we can snag a cheap pair of underwear for $5 and a “cheap” bra for $20. So stop expecting us to match our bras and underwear! It is mathematically impossible!
HAVING YOUR NECKLACES GET TANGLED
Imagine being so angry you want to tear something apart, which is the exact opposite of what you’re allowed to do to solve the problem…unless you want to destroy hundreds or even thousands of dollars worth of belongings.
SITTING IN PUBLIC PLACES IN A SHORT SKIRT
Even shorts that aren’t that short become short when we sit down. Like on the subway. The disgusting, covered in God-knows-what subway.
GETTING IN TROUBLE FOR DRESS CODE VIOLATIONS
In some work environments, we can get in trouble if our mid drift shows when we stretch because apparently it’s “distracting.”
