If you’re a woman, you know one of the worst things that can happen on a nice vacation is that you get your period.
And, if you’re a woman who finds herself in such a situation, you also know the answer is to take a few minutes to curse Mother Nature, pop an Advil, stuff a few more lady products into your purse, and go about your life. Because, you know, you're a woman and such is the way.
Now, if you’re a dude who thinks he’s a woman and you start cramping? You should probably go see a doctor. Given that, you know, you have no uterus to contract, which is what causes PMS pain. Which is probably what someone should have advised this bearded man as he sat huddled beside a trash can at a Disney theme park, filming himself complaining about his “PMS symptoms” landing him in so much discomfort that he couldn’t go about his day.
“People want to say that I don’t experience PMS symptoms,” the guy begins. "But I’ve been cramping incredibly bad all day. And at some point my pain tolerance went away, and it started hurting incredibly bad for the past two hours. So much so that it made me go and throw up three times."
“So yeah, PMS symptoms are ruining my Disney trip,” he added.

No, dude. Your delusion is ruining your body - that’s different.
Let me break this down for you: no uterus? No uterine lining to expel. And aside from medical conditions like PCOS or endometriosis - which, again, you don't possess the physical parts to experience - normal healthy women don't have period pain so bad and so prolonged that it makes them vomit. We know this is new information for you - you're a man, therefore you have no frame of reference. Whatever you’re experiencing isn’t normal, isn't part of a healthy reproductive cycle, and is far more likely due to the fact that you’re pumping your body full of chemicals that aren’t natural to you. Seek medical help.
And some psychiatric too, while you’re at it.
