Now that's cooperation! And I'd of course be happy to give guys a break afterwords. Of course, since the ratio isn't equal (what is it, like 1:10? xD), maybe some guys can volunteer to take a break while the women are menstruating, too, then help pick up the workload afterwords while the other guys take a break for a week? (IE, it would be really easy for all of the men to help take up the workload of the two or three women during their period, and it would be harder for the women to take up the workload of all the men afterwords, because they'd be easing the work of like 20 or 30 guys Razz)

What do you think?

I think it's wonderful you're open to the idea, personally. Women will just looooove this Razz

I have a streak of old-fashioned chivalry, politeness, and honor. I feel guilty if I don't open doors, defer my path to, carry things for, etc., women in general. I'm educated enough to know that it could come off as sexist to some, but I also know enough that it is extremely engrained into my conditioning and that I'd like to continue the habit regardless of politics.

And how about women while menstruating get special work privileges and do mostly what they want: if that involves working fine, but people stepping up and helping/relieving women is fine by me, too.

And I worry that we might come across women who are PMSing and menstruating for 10 days, etc., once a month, which (if we get the ratio we ideally want) would cut 1/4th of our work from half our population. That is, if times sync for duration.

The women should, if they live close enough together, sort of come to an average menstrual cycle I think. My periods tend to be very random and irregular, I get EXTREMELY drained and miserable, but I experience no PMS. So likely tuff and I would end up with slightly unpredictable, small PMSing, and exhaustion. (not sure what tuff's is like)

Isn't this a fun topic?  Twisted Evil

Almost all of my friends are female, so if I wasn't used to talking about this, I'd have gone insane by now!

But yeah. If your periods are irregular, there's a strong chance that you're malnourished, that you may be anemic, and several other similar things. You might want to go get bloodwork and a physical done as well as talk to a gynecologist. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

All people need to take is easier sometimes. Menstration, depression, sore muscles, bad days. Regardless of why, people should do what's healthy for them (like taking a break or doing something else), and other people should be supportive.

Will suggested that I my be anemic, too, but no medical insurance so can't really check it out. Bleh, stupid healthcare system.

I wouldn't expect to get special privileges during that "special time of the month." Besides, the best way to ease cramps is by moving around.  
Even in my everyday life, I don't take a day off just because I'm on my period.  I suck it up and keep going, and I actually feel much better than if I was lying around all day.
