As moderator I really must protest at the gynacological references being brought to the fore in this post.

Frankly the only claret we like to see comes out of other orifices in training [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

Oh dear, the menfolk are getting all flustered!

Sharon, it's very hard to believe sometimes that exercise lessens the cramps. I always used to think it was an urban myth started by the big butch lesbian PE teachers at school!

Perhaps they're just embarrassed and don't like to draw attention to it by asking to be excused certain exercises.

Mark, women may deserve the periods, but men definitely deserve the PMS! Bring on the sharp objects! Oh and, women have to shave their legs, at least we can do it without making the bathroom look like the scene of a bloody murder! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]

Is it as bad as having to shave every day?

i do bring to mind a very old joke:-

Q "why do women get periods"?

A Because they deserve them.

Actually, the correct answer is: because men would not be able to cope with them [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

Sharon,

You are absolutely, 100% correct. I always tell my husband that if it were up to men to procreate, the human race would have been extinct a long time ago.

I think Nancy got it in one! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

I hate to miss a class for any reason, and I don't let "The Curse" stop me, I just pop some ibuprofen, make sure I have the needed supplies in my locker, and go for it.

Some ladies may have been taught, though, that they are "delicate" at this time, need to protect themselves and withdraw. I'd rather go full speed and burn out the aggression on a kicking bag!

sunspots,

Totally agree with you - I just feel sorry for the "kicking pad" holder :-) or the sparring partner during that week. Now, if I could only time it when a tournament is that same weekend!

Exactly! We need to figure out how to harness the aggression and use it when we need it! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

(Plus when I am tired and cranky, a good workout just plain feels better than sitting on the couch...)

How very true!

ditto that for giving birth and looking after the kids....

[IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

I dont know about the rest of you but I LIKE getting bruised and sore at training, makes me feel alive and that I've done something worthwhile.

IMHO Fate worse than death = sitting on couch watching TV.

Reiki,

Very well put and agree about the "feeling alive" aspect. Hopefully, I'm passing that same message on to my daughter.

Sometimes we may go to work or school or wherever with bruises, which makes us "look bad." But I don't call them bruises, I call them proof that I got off my behind and did something most women don't do. They're badges of courage and honor! Our school colors: Black and Blue!
