A Nigerian man has taken to Twitter to wonder why women of nowadays complain about menstrual pains whereas the older generation never did.
According to @iamkingmonye, the older generation of women did more tedious chores like fetching water while they were on their periods, yet they never complained about cramps.
“I don’t know why women complain about Menstrual pains these days, our grand mothers cooked, fetched water with those cramps and nobody heard any complain from them.”
His tweet has sparked mixed reactions online as people, especially ladies, tackle him for questioning their body.
