Woman Gets Reported To HR For Being On Her Period, Decides To Share Her Full Story Online


As if women in the corporate world needed something else to worry about, it is now apparently inappropriate for co-workers to know that you’re on your period, especially if they’re male.

An office worker in the UK recently anonymously discussed an ordeal she endured on Mumsnet, a British parenting site. A male co-worker, hereby known as ‘Guy,’ noticed that she had a hot water bottle nestled into her lap, and jokingly asked about it. Anyone who has ever experienced the searing pain of period cramps would know why it was there, but poor Guy was out of the loop, and had to be politely informed. The man, clearly offended by the thought of a woman (gasp) menstruating in front of him, reported her to the HR department. What followed was an embarrassing conversation that we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy.

The Internet is now outraged, mostly because none of us were aware that having a uterus was considered a medical condition. Scroll down to read the whole story for yourself, find out how people reacted, and add your own 2 cents at the end. Just make sure none of your male peers are watching, as they might assume that you, too, are suffering from the notorious period.
