In Norway, a boss has raised the ire of women everywhere for making females wear red bracelets while they're having their periods.
While the boss's reasoning for doing so was ridiculous -- to monitor bathroom breaks -- I'm not sure they are such a bad idea.
Let's face it, having our period sucks BIG TIME. Many of us are irritable, bloated, crabby, and hormonally charged within an ounce of freaking out or weeping uncontrollably at any moment.
So shouldn't we get a little special treatment?
If we think of the bracelets more like a perk getter -- akin perhaps to a senior citizen discount card -- rather than as discrimination, they really could be quite useful to women and give us some payback for all the pain.
Seriously, it's about time we get some special treatment for all of our suffering. You know men would figure out a way to get it if they went through what we did.
What do you think about women wearing red bracelets during their periods?
