For some reason, there's a lot of caution and awkwardness around the opposite sex. Quite a few of the men I've known over the years have treated women like they're unfathomable creatures. Ditto for the women, who've regard men with confusion and even annoyance. Wouldn't it all be a lot easier if people just talked?

After Redditor lalalaifeee asked the online community, "What is something you've always wanted to ask a woman but daren't?"" people asked their questions and the women worked to clear things up.

Here's a question!

Do you like having boobs?


And here's the answer...

Sometimes I wish I didn't have them. I get pain in my left one and get paranoid that it's my heart even though it's just my boob being dumb.


Question #2:

I've always heard that perfumed feminine hygiene products are universally hated by womankind. True or false?


"I absolutely hate them..."

I absolutely hate them and my girlfriends agree. That scent mixing with the smell of blood is the most terrible thing in the world!


Question #3:

Do women make as many jokes about boobs/vaginas in the same way that men make constant d*ck and ball jokes?


And the answer!`

Only when we're trying to stay abreast of a titillating conversation.


Question #4

Since you roughly know when you're expecting your period, do you ever use preemptive tampons or pads? Or does the period start before you use products?


To which this person replied...

So usually the first sign is a blush of red when you wipe. At that point, you're not yet bleeding into your undies, but you're gonna soon. That's all the heads up I usually need.


Question #5

We sometimes get random boners. Do you ever get randomly wet?


And the answer!

We get so much random discharge you would not believe.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
