I'd be interested to hear whether the woman who haven't said this have heard someone else say it. Because without that bit of information, the two halves of the poll don't even match up because they're asking really different things.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

I say it all the time, because I honestly believe my uterus hates me. Even though I'm nice to it, and try to give it nice things to make it strong and healthy, and it repays me in pain. SINCE WHEN WAS THIS AN ACCEPTABLE CURRENCY UTERUS? WHY DO YOU HATE ME SO?

I've gotten to the point where all the women i work with will talk to me openly about their menstrual cycles... bahaha.

And i've said "stupid uterus" many times. Also told my friend many times that i don't want to come over cause my girl parts hurt.

This thread has made the word uterus seem really, really weeeiiiird. Uterus. Uterus. Uuuuuuuuuterus.
Okay, done now.

CONTINUE.

I really dunno if I've ever said it... probably in jest, but I have no uterus.

Male, 2 close female friends often utter "Stupid uterus" or "stupid ovaries".
Why is it that 4chan is either infinitely awesome, infinitely bad, or "lolwut", but never any intermediary level?

Your grandmother is in her thirties?

"That time of the month" is probably the most common phrase I hear my fellow mums use. Note mums, not grandmothers.

I say some version of it, because I find it a lot less graphic than most euphemisms ("time of the month" bothers me, and "Aunt Flo" is fucking disgusting). Saying "my uterus hates me today" de-emphasizes the "blood is coming out of my vagina" factor, and emphasizes a non-sexual internal organ. And bodies are a mess, in general, so it makes perfect sense to yell at internal organs ("shut up, stomach").

And I guess I've been assuming some people I talk to would be more comfortable hearing "blah blah uterus" than "blah blah Shark Week," because when I say "uterus" I picture only a uterus, not the full spectrum of menstrual difficulties.
