For several hours, the hashtag #IfMenHadPeriods was trending on Twitter, making fun of men and “Toxic masculinity”. The hashtag was created by Feminists to highlight what they think would happen if the genders were reversed and men experienced monthly menstruation.
Everything was going okay, and they were having their fun until a new wave of Feminists came along.
