Menstruaters (sic - yes they didn't even spell it right).

Radio 4 are tweeting about a programme on the topic of periods. They are describing women as menstruaters.
I am a woman, sometimes a menstruating woman, never a menstruater.

I misread this as menstruhaters.

This is so fucking offensive.

I wonder if they are going to refer to any male past the age of 12yrs as ejaculators?

BartholinsSister Thu 17-Nov-16 09:25:57

Or wankers, Queen

I have no idea, but perhaps we should coin the term ejaculators in self-defense. Let's see how they like it.

VincentVL Thu 17-Nov-16 10:34:02

"not all ejaculators"..

VestalVirgin Thu 17-Nov-16 10:36:17

I am more fond of calling them "the bepenised", but since we are referring to biological functions that the body does not do all the time, I suppose ejaculators is the correct equivalent.

("Wankers" would be easier to pronounce, though ...)

There would then be the sticky subject of 'female ejaculation' to overcome, mind.

I like the idea of ejaculating in self-defence grin

Warning: the first two rows will get wet!

I was all irate last night, and now you've all gone and made me laugh. Thank you

Clearly because "some men menstruate" (meaning transmen) and it's probably "actual violence" to just say women when talking about menstruation... hmm

Female ejaculation due to be renamed at some point presumably (warning - that Wiki page has a slightly NSFW medical photo at the top) Cis squirt? Front hole fluid?
