You know what they say, if you really want to know a person, you need to walk a mile in their shoes. Or, in the case of these three intrepid Buzzfeed dudes, menstruate for three days in their pants. They strapped on a beet-juice-and-cornstarch-slurry dispenser, stuck a pad in their briefs and got faux-bloody for three days, in an endeavor to really discover what it's like for people who have a monthly cycle. Three days of dumping beet juice all over their clothes and bathroom floors blew their damn minds. There are so many head-shaking revelations, like the surprise that bleeding also occurs at night, or their naiveness about how pads and tampons are not universally available. As one said, "I don't think tampons or pads should be a privilege, I think it should definitely be like a right" (not taxing them like a luxury item would be a good start). Next they should test out making 78 cents to their male coworkers' dollar, just to really get the full woman experience.
