>WHEN my friend told me that her male colleagues were keeping track of her period, my initial reaction was, “Wait? What!”
>“They want to stay away from me when I’m PMSing, because I get a bit moody,” she said.
>She found out her male colleagues were keeping track of her “time of the month” after she had a small argument with one of them, who had asked her if she was on her period.
>It turns out he had been tracking her cycle on his work calendar, sending himself reminders of when her period was about to come up. Making the whole thing worse, he’d sent the calendar to all their male colleagues so they could all keep track of her and their other female friends’ cycles.
>According to the male colleague, who along with my friend, wish to remain anonymous, it’s a “good strategy to track her period cycle in order to avoid unnecessary situations”.
>He justified his action by adding, “I’m just trying to stay away from trouble.”
>He’s got a nickname for a period: “C63”, named “after the Mercedez Benz C63 that moves 0km to 100km in under four seconds ... that’s how fast her mood will change”.
>There are actually apps designed formen to keep track of women’s period.
