I just read this on my newsfeed and am really shocked and angry. It's a "glue" designed by a man to shut the vagina during your period and then "opens" it up when you wee. It has been granted a patent but not on sale to the public yet. The "inventor" is a proper arsehole too.

Wtaf?!

Whattt?! That can't be healthy confused

A what now?

HecateAntaia Wed 22-Feb-17 21:17:17

yet another ridiculous man who has no idea about female anatomy. i bet he thinks we wee and bleed from the same hole like that stupid brat who was banging on about how women should wait till theyre on the loo 😂😂😂

any woman who actually buys this crap needs her head examining.

his hatred of women is breathtaking.

Eh?!! Invented by a man?! Typical! Gross!

fatmummy87 Wed 22-Feb-17 21:17:45

Have read it now...reads like a spoof article.

Hahaha!

I think it's a clever idea. But given his comments about women not inventing other sanitary products because they are distracted by their periods 25% of the time and that messes with their heads hmm puts me right off giving him any of my money.

I think every new sanitary product seems weird when you first hear about it. But I would be concerned about how reliable this would be - imagine it suddenly failing and bursting every where! Or how healthy it is. I suppose in a way it is just creating a mentstrual cup from your own skin. But I wonder how hygeinic it is using the same stick multiple times....

I think it sounds quite practical tbh.
Just because something is invented by a man that's aimed at women doesn't mean they're bad.

After 2 second degree tears and numerous grazes I don't think I have anything left to glue together. I don't think it's a good idea at all. Imagine young girls gluing it shut for hours and then getting some kind of infection. Blood clots really quickly...you wouldn't just wee out blood, it would be massive clots.

Wouldn't work for people who bleed heavily surely ?

GeillisTheWitch Wed 22-Feb-17 21:28:36

How strong is the glue? Too strong and it would be painful to move around. Not strong enough and it risks popping open if you bend over. Batshit idea, think I'll be sticking to the bodyform.

Um. What about if you had a little accident. It would be a huge accident instead!

Hgmother Wed 22-Feb-17 21:35:29

You as a woman should have come up with a better solution than diapers and plugs, but you didn’t. Reason being women are focused on and distracted by your period 25 per cent of the time, making them far less productive than they could be. Women tend to be far more creative than men, but their periods that [sic] stifle them and play with their heads
He also called the vagina something like the bodys version of a shower drain, if I remember correctly.

What an asshole.

Hey! Maybe we should glue that shut and see how he likes it! hmm

HateSummer Wed 22-Feb-17 21:41:26

Hgmother it sounds like he's already glued it shut himself, that's why he's so full of shit!

PyongyangKipperbang Wed 22-Feb-17 21:43:37

Well if we glue his arse shut we wont hear anything more from him as he clearly talks through it.

Its not the invention itself I have a problem with, although it doesnt sound particularly well thought out to me, but his offensive words. Distracted by my period? No. Distracted by sexist ignorant wankers who insult me and the rest of my sex? Yes, frequently.

Unicornsandrainbows3 Wed 22-Feb-17 21:46:47

Insane. And you don't wee from your vagina either. He needs to get the anatomy right at least! He can take his glue and....

ohmygodyouguys Wed 22-Feb-17 21:47:04

This man is a doctor??? Clearly not a medical doctor. Or maybe he skipped that day.....

Cantusethatname Wed 22-Feb-17 21:47:12

I'd love to see this one on Dragons Den.

Clandestino Wed 22-Feb-17 21:48:52

It won't stop the blood flow and it will only increase the possibility of infections. He should glue his prick first, this kind of stupidity shouldn't spread in our already rather damaged gene fond.

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 22-Feb-17 21:50:06

Menstrual blood doesn't clot <interesting fact>

It's still a stupid idea though. It's flowing out for a reason.

LineysRun Wed 22-Feb-17 21:52:04

One word - flooding.

bagpackbagpack Wed 22-Feb-17 21:57:12

Just no...

Typed and deleted numerous responses to this, but the resounding theme of them all is "fuck no"

Most of the responses did include him gluing his foreskin..

Hgmother Wed 22-Feb-17 21:58:56

hatesummer

Lol! You're so right! Haha grin

Muddlewitch Wed 22-Feb-17 22:00:26

Is that true fluffy? I get loads of huge clots.

I don't think this idea would work in practice for all the reasons mentioned but don't imagine he thinks it will either, it's just to give him a platform to be an arse.
