19 Illustrations That Capture What It's Like to Be on Your Period

Being a girl is 99% awesome, but periods are just not cool. NOT COOL. *shakes fist at the sky* No matter what cutesy name you give it (riding the crimson wave, shark week, a visit from Aunt Flo) periods feel like death. Try as they might, boys will just never understand. Some talented female artists, though, have captured the feeling of "that time of the month" so perfectly that will help girls commiserate and men get a taste of the pain.
