Luckily for me, I’m a guy. I can never experience the pain that some women might go through on a monthly basis. Although, if we give it another 50 years, maybe transgender surgery could grant this also! In a world where women are striving for equality. This is not a good idea and a step in the other direction.
I will start with the obvious issue. This system would get abused. This has nothing to do with women. No matter what gender you are, people will always abuse whatever privileges you give them. With no way of knowing how “in pain” a person really is, it would clearly be abused.
Some feminists who preach that they are discriminated against for simply being female might think, “finally, us women get something! We deserve this!” However, this is gender discrimination against men! We should be working towards equality.
We live in an age where women are striving for equal pay (which they deserve) & creating this type of leave works less towards equality and more towards creating separate paths that could divide us further. (source)
