    Hello Family ... and calm down ... i mean no disrespect by this question.

    In voice chat recently, Brother Keita mentioned that most aren't aware that there is a specific time of the month that a man's seed, "comes down," or something like that.

    Oh Gosh ... i know i'm not quoting him exactly right ... but he said something like this.

    Brother Keita ... anyone ... would you please enlighten us?

    Thanks.

    :heart:

    This is Funny. Keita, maybe you should come explain? If not it doesn't matter. :puke:

    Here are somethings I found would happen and how men would act if we did have periods. :nuts:

    http://pages.towson.edu/romans/python/memperiods.txt

    " If men had periods they would brag about the size of their tampons

    Since history was recorded, male human beings have built
    whole cultures around the idea that penis-envy is "natural"
    to women--though having such an unprotected organ might be
    said to make men more vulnerable, and the power to give
    birth makes womb-envy at least logical. In short, logic has
    nothing to do with it. What would happen, for instance, if
    suddenly, magically, men could menstruate and women could
    not? The answer is clear--menstruation would become an
    enviable, boast-worthy, masculine event:

    Men would brag about how long and how much. :bowdown:

    Boys would mark the onset of menses, that longed-for proof
    of manhood, with religious ritual and stag parties.

    The US Congress would fund a National Institute of
    Dysmenorrhea to help stamp out monthly discomforts.

    Sanitary supplies would be federally funded and free. (Of
    course, some men would still pay for the prestige of
    commercial brands such as John Wayne Tampons, Muhammed Ali's
    Rope-a-dope Pads, Joe Namath Jock Shields--"For Those Light
    Bachelor Days," and Robert "Baretta" Blake Maxi-Pads.) :thanks:

    Military men, right-wing politicians, and religious
    fundamentalists would cite menstruation ("MENstruation") as
    proof that only men could serve in the army ("You have to
    give blood to take blood"), occupy political office ("Can
    women be aggressive without that steadfast cycle governed by
    the planet Mars?"), be priests and ministers ("how could a
    woman give her blood for our sins"), or rabbis ("Without the
    monthly loss of impurities, women remain unclean"). :eeek:

    Male radicals, left-wing politicians, and mystics, however,
    would insist that women are equal, just different; and that
    any woman could enter their ranks if only she were willing
    to self-inflict a major wound every month ("You MUST give
    blood for the revolution"), recognize the preeminence of
    menstrual issues, or subordinate her selfness to all men in
    their Cycle of Enlightenment. :rolling:

    Street guys would brag ("I'm a three-pad man") or answer
    praise from a buddy ("Man, you are lookin' good") by giving
    fives and saying, "Yeah, man, I'm on the rag!" :puke: :bomb:

    TV shows would treat the subject at length.
    * "Happy Days": Richie and Potsie try to convince Fonzie
    that he is still "The Fonz," though he has missed two
    periods in a row.
    * So would newspapers. (JUDGE CITES MONTHLY STRESS IN
    PARDONING RAPIST.)
    * And movies. (Newman and Redford in "Blood Brothers"!)
    Men would convince women that intercourse was more
    pleasurable at "that time of the month." Lesbians would be
    said to fear blood and therefore life itself--though
    probably only because they needed a good menstruating man.

    Of course, male intellectuals would offer the most moral and
    logical arguments. How could a woman master any discipline
    that demanded a sense of time, space, mathematics, or
    measurement, for instance, without that in-built gift for
    measuring the cycles of the moon and planets--and thus for
    measuring anything at all? In the rarefied fields of
    philosophy and religion, could women compensate for missing
    the rhythm of the universe? Or for their lack of symbolic
    death-and-resurrection every month? "

    Have fun with this!
