Mostly I miss my father very much but there are times when I am glad he is not around to see the lunacy emanating from the left. This is one such case as the ACLU now says that men can have periods and babies. Just out of curiosity, I would love to know how many abortions Planned Parenthood performs on biological men every year.
I understand tampon companies who take the word women from their products. If men want to buy them, these companies are more than happy to sell them to them. It’s as if there is a contest to see who can be the most ridiculous. It’s a contest that makes it impossible for conservatives to win or liberals to lose. How long before the ACLU starts bringing lawsuits against abortion clinics that will not accept men? It’s only a matter of time.
There’s no one way to be a man.
Men who get their periods are men.
Men who get pregnant and give birth are men.
Trans and non-binary men belong.#InternationalMensDay

Perhaps the ACLU is talking about people who are born as a woman and identify as men. But, it wouldn’t be due to their male organs but their female organs. Liberals try to control the language because they are unable to control the facts.
As a trans person closeted until 24, I had a very distant relationship with my body. Getting my period forced me to deal with it — and showed me the body type I was born with is a mind-blowing thing. My body had the capability to produce a human life and it can clean itself out! Alas, I haven’t had a period in five years because I am on testosterone. Technically, I could take less testosterone, get a period and still look as masculine as I do. But ultimately, I chose not to have one. My gender dysphoria, which is eased through testosterone and surgery, outweighs my sentimentality toward my period.
Others maintain, however, that people who were born as biological males and identify as women can experience period symptoms:
Ashley’s a 23-year-old trans girl who’s been on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for over a year. She takes a cocktail of the antiandrogen spironolactone and estradiol, a form of estrogen. About five months into her treatment, she began experiencing a predictable pattern of symptoms: First would come the soreness and swelling in her chest along with bouts of nausea; the next day, she’d endure painful abdominal cramping lasting minutes at a time, as well as constant nausea, hot flashes, dizziness, photosensitive migraines, and bloating. This cycle, she says, lasts for about six to seven days and repeats roughly every five weeks. If those symptoms sound familiar, it’s because billions of cis women all over the world experience similar symptoms while menstruating.
