Okay, just had to share this stupid people story with you.
Yesterday my Union had there annual Christmas party for the kids. I went and this is the first time in almost 3 months I've seen my co-workers (mostly men).
So someone asked when I am coming back to work and I told them after the holidays and why I was out. The guy then says to me, "OH my Mom had a hysterectomy when I was 5, but 2 years later my brother came along". I tried to tell this guy that he must be thinking of a tubal ligation. But he insisted that it was a hyster. I then explained that with a hyster they take out the uterus, then I said "I doubt her uterus would have grown back", to which he replied "well, it must have, infact, I believe that's what the Dr. said happened". I didn't know whether to laugh or scream, rofl.

I am totally dumbfounded at how ignorant men are about the female body!!! I would have asked him to please ask his mother to tell him how long it took to grow back just so you could figure out when to start taking birth control again!!! Then his mom could set him straight!!! Did these guys all skip health class in high school???? But the laugh this morning felt good....thanks Kat....I enjoy reading your posts!

Uh, Oh... I sure hope he's wrong - I don't want MINE to grow back

DH asked if your genius co-worker has a photo? I'm thinking that if this is true, his mom is probably listed in medical text books and in Guiness.

- some people are not only ignorant, they're also too dumb to admit they're wrong!!!

Now, thanks to you Kat, my tummy hurts from laughing too hard!!!

Maybe if organ regeneration runs in his family, he could grow some of the brain cells that he is obviously missing!! I once worked with a guy who insisted that his wife had real orgasms (never faked as this was the topic of conversation at the time) and he knew this for certain because she got pregnant. He believed that women "ejaculated an egg" and this wouldn't happen unless she had the big O. Where do you suppose these ideas come from? And this is the gender in charge of the world! LOL

Ok, I have a killer one here. Years ago my sister ended up with an unplanned pregnancy. She was 20. The father lived in Washington, she in Nevada. She went up to visit him during the pregnancy and they were getting "intimate" and he asked her if she could get pregnant AGAIN (remember she's about 6 mos. pregnant). It amazes me how some males, not all, don't want to start male bashing, can be so ignorant about the female body. Thought this was an amusing story to add!
