An Australian woman has revealed her horror at discovering that her male colleagues had been keeping a track of her menstrual cycle, sharing around a calendar and noting the days when she seemed “moody.”
It wasn’t until she burst into tears one day that one of her co-workers admitted to knowing why she was so emotional.
According to The Herald Sun, the unnamed woman became teary when the man told her that the reason she was single was “because she talked back”; after apologising, he then asked if she had her period, before confessing that he already knew the answer.
The man, who also remains unnamed, said that it was a “good strategy to track her period cycle in order to avoid unnecessary situations”, adding that he was “just trying to stay away from trouble.”
“They want to stay away from me when I’m PMSing, because I get a bit moody,” the woman later explained to a friend.
Once the man had figured out his colleague’s menstrual cycle, he marked the dates on a calendar and shared it around the office to his fellow male workers.
Even more shockingly, there exists actual apps designed for men to monitor the hormone-related behaviour of their female friends, relatives and co-workers; one, called PMSing, it can track the menstrual cycles of up to 10 women at a time.
