This is a post from an external website that I thought I should share. These words are not mine.

"We all have heard women referred to in that dehumanizing way.

Men don't get the same treatment. The usage of "prostate havers", "sperm producers", "testes owners" and similar phrases are virtually nonexistent.

There is sexism there, but I'm not referring to the more blatant sexism you can see in that language.

I've heard a justification for a lack of "prostate havers." They say that issues involving women's reproductive health are more dangerous, so you hear "insert female sexual organ havers" more than "prostate havers" and similar.

But that makes it all so so much worse.

The majority of women don't know what a cervix is. So calling women "cervix havers" leads to less women knowing that PSAs telling "cervix havers" to get checkups or know symptoms are talking to women.

Even worse, calling women by their sex organs erases the message to many poor, immigrant, uneducated, and/or non native speaking women.

They all know what a woman is, but they may not know the word uterus and cervix.

Even if they do know what the word means, it could pass under their radar by overcomplicating the word woman.

Historically, using more complex language has been used to dissuade underprivileged people and keep them in a negative state i.e. governmental body may openly give resources to the disadvantaged, but would make the ability to access them needlessly complex or exclusively use businesslike language.

A person who is functionally illiterate, non native, or predominantly speaks and hears a dialect would not be able to access those resources easily.

Educating the poor hasn't ever happened on a wide scale in the USA and our government doesn't prioritize it.

Women are actively dying from preventable ailments and we need them to be able to utilize all of the resources they can that already exist.

These women need to be spoken to about their health in a way that is easily understood and accessible."

If this is not the place for this, please feel free to delete.

I suffer from PMDD--this PMS, but to the point of needing serious clinical interventions. I am basically incapacitated two-three days before ovulation each month. This month, that period is in advance of two very important professional deadlines. This, for me, is absolutely connected to the struggle of being a professional woman. This is a problem on 50% of humanity could possibly have. This experience has been part of my fundamental understanding of womanhood.

However, every time I have tried to share this experience with female friends I get shut down for connecting the experience to womanhood, because that understanding of my own experience is apparently not inclusive enough! The only people who have really listened to me are my two best friends, both men (one gay and one straight, if it matters). But they also acknowledge that this is something they can't ultimately get because it is a "female problem."

I just feel so isolated and like I have to walk on eggshells when talking about this this that has so much control and power in my life. And it fucking sucks.
