I have a theory.
Since I was a child, I’ve been told that women become irritable when they are menstruating, and that this is because their hormones make them irrational. I suspect that their irritability is entirely rational, and that rather than hormones, it is caused by having half of the people they deal with not understand that they are having to continue functioning despite the fact that they are in terrible pain.
I have another theory.
Since I was a child, I have heard that men don’t like to buy feminine hygiene products for the women in their lives, and that this is because the men in question are insecure. I suspect, however, that if the lady in your life mentions that she’s going to the store, and asks if you need anything, they would hesitate to buy whatever you ask for, even if it’s something totally innocuous, like Diet Pepsi, or a scrub brush, if you specify that it’s “For my nards.” This effect would only be magnified if strangers were able to look at that item in her basket and know, “She’s buying that for some dude’s nards.”
Also, I should point out that my disguise in this comic is sunglasses and a hoodie. I was apparently disguised as “Most other guys.”
Note from Missy: My brain read “for my nards” the same way one would shout “FOR THE HORDE!”
