Okay, so, this MAN has invented a solution to something be apparently knows nothing about.
And it's ridiculous.
A chiropractor in Kansas has invented a lipstick-like glue that will seal your labia shut during your period, holding all of the blood in until you go to the bathroom, according to a viral Facebook post.
It would be similar to when your lips get dry and stick together, an ad for the product reads.
"Have you ever woken up with your lips stuck together?" the ad reads. "It didn’t hurt and it was kind of fun. All you had to do was wet your lips from the inside with saliva and they became unstuck. Mensez feminine lipstick is a natural patented compound of amino acids and oil in a lipstick applicator that is applied to the lips down under during the period. Urine instantly unsticks the labia and allows everything to wash out into the toilet, wipe and reapply Mensez lipstick. Clean, Safe, Secure and Done. Coming to a store near you soon."
If you've had a period ever, you'll know very well that gluing your labia together is not the solution to this problem. And if the idea is that the moisture from urine will instantly unstick the glue, why wouldn't the moisture from menstrual blood do the same?
We actually already have effective solutions for "controlling" our periods, m8, and any innovation in the menstruation department should be left to people who, you know, actually know their shit about it.
Yet, Dan Dopps — the man behind this revolutionary product — seems to think women have failed to come up with a good solution to their period problem.
"Yes, I am a man and you as women should have come up with better solutions than diapers and plugs," he writes. "But you didn't."
Dopps also seems to be ignoring other innovations in menstrual products, such as menstrual cups and sponges — innovations driven by women.
And if like us, you were wondering if this whole thing is a joke, APPARENTLY it isn't. Dopps allegedly has a patent for the product, Bust reports.
