It is a common irritation of women that men seem to need to explain how things work to them, assuming they wouldn't possibly know already. In fact, the term "mansplaining" has been coined to describe the regular occurrence. Now, a man has managed to annoy women as he explains to them -- incorrectly -- just how many tampons per year they should need.
According to The Guardian, a man has done the math and calculated just how many tampons per year women need while they are menstruating.
"So the average period is 10 to 35ml of blood, each tampon holds about 5ml, so seven tampons per cycle," the man explains in a post that was shared on Twitter (Not Safe for Work content: swearing).
"Lets be generous and say 10 for those ladies with an extra-juicy uterine lining. Nine periods a year equals 90 tampons max."
"Cut down on your venti frapps and stop whining. This isn't a first world problem."
"You can get a 64 pack on Amazon for £7.90 plus shipping," he advised.
"Buy two packs, save on shipping and have 128 tampons for the year, that's about £20 here or their [sic] for a year's periods."
