15+ Embarrassingly Stupid People Who Totally Didn’t Understand How Female Body Really Works

The female body is this mysterious oasis that most men never fully understand.

Maybe it’s like Narnia? Or Atlantis. A once well-known secret, lost to the aeons of time and space, never to be fully understood again. That, or you could just take up a proper sex ed class or use google.

In traditional health class, the male body is a lot simpler than the female body, so it’s more easily taught and understood by the students. But because this ends up with students not really understanding the complexities of the female body, they end up making really dumb and stupid assumptions about them. Just look at this.

1. Clit doesn’t exist. 

“I’ve had multiple cis male friends of mine have the misconception that the vagina is an opening on the front of crotch area, right around where the penis would be if the individual had a penis. They didn’t believe the clit existed, just a vast hole. Apparently this is a decently common misconception. Go American healthcare system!”

2. Nun vows. 

“I was told by another girl in high school that when nuns take their vows in the Catholic church, their menstrual cycles immediately stop for life because they will not be having children.”

3. Poor hygiene. 

“I was told by a bloke on Facebook that the blood clots you get while on your period are due to poor hygiene.”

4. Really meant it. 

“One of my exes didn’t know ejaculating in a girl is what caused pregnancy. He said it only worked if you ‘really meant it’.”

5. Period control. 

“My periods were late, and me and the boyfriend were worried because we use mainly condoms for contraception. He told me to just get my period on time the next month. He was shocked when I told him I don’t really get to control when it comes.”

6. Oral sex. 

“‘If your fallopian tubes are in your neck that really means you shouldn’t be giving oral unless a condom is involved, right?’ Welp. That would be the case, BUT THEY AREN’T IN YOUR NECK BRO.”

7. Pregnant once. 

“So I was talking to this friend of mine in school and she probably believed her whole life that you could only get pregnant once, and then you’ll just have to wait to see if if you’ll get one, two or more children. She thought that once you got pregnant, there were one, two or more single seeds in your body and these will determine how many children you’d get over the years.”

8. Science teacher. 

“When I was about 16, a friend asked our Chemistry teacher if she could use the bathroom. He kept refusing, until she eventually said she thought she’d come on her period and needed to put a tampon in. He still refused and demanded to know why she hadn’t put a tampon in before class, saying that she was old enough to know when she’d come on by now. According to him, a woman’s period came on the exact same day, at the same time each month. It blows my mind that this guy was a *science* teacher.”

9. After birth. 

“I had a boyfriend who thought that, after giving birth, the vagina stayed that stretched out. Like, it was literally just baby-sized for the rest of your life.”
