    I'm sure you'll never have to worry on that account, though.
    Ok, the question is weird but why would it be stupid?

    I don't think it's a stupid question--I can sense the organ in myself whenever I have menstrual cramps. Which is monthly. And not pleasant.

    Can you sense any internal organs, other than when they give you pain? Why would a womb be any different? It's not magical, you know. It's just an empty sack.

    You are imagining things. You can't sense an organ, you can only feel pain and the only reason for menstrual cramps/PMS is a nutritional/hormonal imbalance. No-one has to suffer them. I don't.
    I hate people perpetuating these myths that women have some kind of inherent disability and using it to justify discriminatory conduct.

    I don't hear anyone calling it a "disability" but you. You sound bitter over the fact that there are real biological differences between men and women, and that you can't make them go away with reason or enlightenment. The uterus was not invented by a bunch of old guys in a smoke-filled room to keep the ladies in line. Does it suck to be a woman sometimes because of these things? Yeah, I imagine it does. But it's not anything someone did to you.

    Please be fair with me. How should I know that?
    I asked simply bacause I don't want to keep it at the level of guessing.


    OK you can't feel it and that's it.

    I am physically fit (5'7" and 117 lbs), I eat very healthy and take vitamins, and I near-always get enough sleep. I don't drink caffeine. I've been to a doctor about it. Multiple times. Just because you've been able to experience things in a pleasant way, does not mean all of us do. Most of the females in my family, myself included, sometimes vomit. I also usually get enough of a fever that I should technically go to the emergency room, and regularly get chills.

    Regardless if it's preventable or not, I've tried very hard and looked for professional help multiple times and I've not been successful. I'm not the only female like that.

    I'm not bitter FM. Why should I be? You are talking out of your ass.
    I don't suffer, I'm seeking to provide a balanced viewpoint. It's not a big deal and people shouldn't go around saying/thinking it is.

    AO asks REALLY STUPID questions. Stupid questions annoy me. As do stupid ill-conceived responses.

    Well, I'm sorry, that does suck. But you are the exception and not the rule.

    Not everyone shares your opinion on what is stupid, so although a question may not be relevant to you, it might still be to others.
