How come they call it MENstruation if it's for women?

    Good point, complain to your nearest liberal politician. Maybe we can get it renamed "personstruation".

    It comes from the Latin word for "month".

    The Latin word for "man" is "homo". I thought most people knew that.

    The word "menstruation" is derived from the noun "menses", which is a word that describes the periodic flow of blood and mucosal tissue from the uterus. "Menses" is an old Latin word that means "monthly".

    Clearly you do not understand what the origin of the prefix is.

    Because men feel the need to be included in EVERYTHING

    Because they can pretend they have cramps and moods to go along with them, to get sympathy from the man.

    Also, it’s a good excuse to abuse the man by saying or doing whatever they want and blame it on their period.

    MEN suffer the most from MENstruation.

    It comes from the latin mensis, meaning "monthly."
