    This guy is disgusting

  2. Harryg says:

    He’s creepy. And the woman he picked seemed like such an Actress.

  3. cate says:

    he is so dumb and disgusting my god! what a pathetic excuse for a man

  4. ans says:

    This young man has MUCH to learn, lol. This definitely made me believe he was up until very recently, a virgin.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Don’t insult virgins like that. This dude is just an ignorant a**hole.

  5. rose says:

    Well I mean it is gross to keep stained underwear though , I would never wear it again .

    • Original Jenns says:

      Good for you. Even with products, sometimes my periods are a little messy and leak. I’d rather wear stained yet clean underwear during that time. I would hate to have to throw out usable clothing. It’s wasteful.

      I am adding, though, that as a woman, totally your call. As a man who has no idea what he’s talking about, he needs to have no opinion on this one, especially a juvenile one. Really, menstrual blood is akin to s#itting your pants??? Wow, what an intelligent and mature young man. I would definitely trust all the ups and downs of life with that one. I wonder if he knows many women poop during child birth… I can’t wait to hear how he would fix that.

      • LT says:

        Oxyclean spray, the original formula (not the extra strength) gets blood out. I’ve got 4 kids, including one who gets chronic bloody noses and a daughter who is still learning about how to manage her periods, so I have washed a LOT of blood out of a LOT of clothes. Just make sure you hit it before it goes into the wash. It’s kinda cool, actually, because the hydrogen bleach reacts to the blood and fizzes as it’s working.

      • Kaye says:

        Hydrogen peroxide works too, if you get it on soon enough.

    • Wendy says:

      Congrats on having so much disposable income that you can afford to throw away panties that might have a little splotch in them. Not everyone lives that kind of wasteful, privileged life.

      • megs283 says:

        no kidding. right now all my undies could qualify as period panties or straight up rags. It’s been a rough year money-wise.

      • Cher says:

        Amen. It’s wasteful and unnecessarily prim to throw away perfectly good undies because of a little stain. Especially if it happens to you a lot, which it does for women whose periods are unpredictable and heavy.

      • Dee says:

        I wouldn’t call it “disposable income” lol but I can certainly afford new underwear at $3/pair from Walmart or Target. Whatever justifies/makes you feel better about your stained under wear.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Eh, if you’re a woman that suffers from heavy periods or uneven cycles, leakage and breakthrough bleeding are inevitable at some point. I’d be buying new underwear every month If I freaked out any time I got a little spotting. (Yes, even on birth control, it’s an issue.) If I have a major breakthrough bleed, yeah, I’ll toss them because they’re probably past saving at that point, but otherwise, who cares? It’ll wash out and fade easily enough. Not like anybody else is seeing them – other than maybe my partner, and trust me, I’m not marrying a man who treats a basic biological function like the end of the world. Frankly, it doesn’t strike me as any more or less gross than the other vaginal secretions we produce commonly.

    • Dee says:

      Guys are skeeved out already in regards to menstration, so it’s kind of a no brainer that he’s grossed out by the thought of women wearing blood stained underwear. I didn’t even know that was a thing. I would never wear that, I’d throw them away. How would you feel good about yourself in stained undergarments?
      Anyways, any man would be grossed out. Even if they pretend they aren’t.

      • Pinetree13 says:

        Yeah I personally would not wear stained underwear. Instead I buy super cheap ugly grandma panties for that time LOL but yeah wearing stained underwear does seem gross to me. Plus I’ve never had blood not come out in the wash!? This coming from someone currently wearing oversized old navy undies with a broken elastic waist band lol

      • Wendy says:

        Not all of us derive our self-worth from external things like the condition of our underpants. Thank god.

      • LT says:

        Pinetree13 – Oxyclean. Gets the blood out every time.

      • Lex says:

        Lolol this is the most bizarre statement to me.
        Undies can get stained so very easily not just from blood but from regular discharge. You wash them (soak if you wish) and wear em again. I have never had a single second thought. Undies are worn flush with genitals and butt hole. What the frack do I care if theres a mark or two on them??????
        Weird and bizaarely precious!

      • raptor says:

        I mean, it’s really generalising to say that any guy would be grossed out by stained underwear. Plenty aren’t. Honestly, no one I’ve been with has even cared about my underwear. It’s what’s on the inside that counts. Or something.

      • Snowflake says:

        I think it depends on the man. My husband was raised by his grandma and around a lot of women. He’s not grossed out by it. Shit happens, literally. I’m only 43 but I’ve been having a problem where i think I’m gonna fart or have to poop and don’t make it to the bathroom in time. I now know what sharting is! I never had that before my 40s so i think it must be an age thing. I was driving to a class for my job on Tuesday. I’m about to pull up and I felt like i had to poop. So I’m trying to squeeze and hold it in and all of a sudden it just came out. It was so gross. Thankfully i made it to the bathroom without anyone knowing and was able to clean up. But yes, I’ve had blood not wash out of my underwear in the washer and the stain set in. Bur yeah, undewear is expensive, I’ll reuse them if i cab.

      • wolfgirl says:

        @Snowflake
        Gosh I hope I’m not overstepping here, but I’m concerned by those symptoms.
        Is it possible you could you go and get that checked out by your doctor? I’m a medico -and though it could be nothing worrisome, it’s not right. Please go and see about it…? Take care xxx

      • Doodle says:

        @Snowflake – I agree, I’m concerned about you. I’m not a medical pro but have had friends with similar symptoms and one was diagnosed with a digestive problem and the other ended up with a cancer diagnosis. So please don’t ignore this! It’s better to go to a doctor and make sure everything is ok than to wish you had gone. Maybe you’re just drinking too much Diet Coke, maybe it’s a symptom of something more serious.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Rinse with cold water immediately if you can, washes right out. Otherwise, Spray N Wash always works for me.

    • Snowslow says:

      Wow, I think I am more grossed out by women who react as if their vagina and vulva are precious roses than men who clearly have never been interested in knowing what it’s like to have a female body.
      I am furious at some of these comments to put it lightly. Discharge and leaking, not to mention discharges related to arousal are par of the course for many (if not all women). Why pretend otherwise. If you have the means and the time to buy or wash the way you’re supposed to not to have stained underwear good for you. I dislike Amy Schumer but I love that bit where she says her underwear at the end of the day looks like someone blew their nose on them. Super familiar to me, I have discharges all the time. Sometimes it leaves stains, sometimes it doesn’t – but it very often wrinkles the fabric after it’s washed.
      It’s time to treat our bodies with kindness and understand that we are not all the same and not all have the same time and money to be precious about, well, normal body functions.

    • Maples says:

      It is so discouraging and saddening to read these comments and to see how women view their period blood as such a disgusting and vile thing. Any stain from this horrid event must be thrown out! There is nothing disgusting or gross or horrible about period blood or period stains. Menstruation is a completely normal, healthy and natural thing. Women have definitely been thoroughly brainwashed to feel so much shame in regards to anything to do with their bodies and their body’s natural processes. These comments reflect a shame that goes well beyond any stain, it is the internalized repulsion and shame of the period itself that seems to be the issue. As for this guy, he is just a typical ignorant moron and doesn’t even deserve to be thought of twice.

    • whybother says:

      Ehh.. you can just wash them. Use cold water n shower gel, it helps take off the blood stain completely. But you rich enough to just throw it away, you do you~
      Thank you to senior who imparted that knowledge to me in boarding school decades ago~

  6. Nev says:

    oh geez.

  7. Bryn says:

    Wow. Has he never spoken to a real woman lol

  8. KBeth says:

    My 14 year old son demonstrates greater maturity than this nobody Underwood guy, what an idiot.

  9. Lizzie says:

    a douche who puts so much weight into his “virtue” of virginity saying something stupid and ignorant about women isn’t that surprising.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Agree what a tool he is. So sick about hearing about his vaunted “purity” gag me with a spoon

  10. DSW says:

    He’s almost as bad as that guy who thought that women were capable of holding in their menstrual flow like urine but were being lazy and choosing to let it leak onto pads instead. In response to a discussion about taxes on feminine hygiene products, he said women shouldn’t get free stuff if they “choose” to bleed all over themselves. He didn’t even want to hear it when people tried to inform him that that’s not how things work. What an idiot.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Yeah I was just thinking about that today! Horrifying and now I wonder how many males actually think that – maybe a lot? Shiver!

      It reminds me of Rush Limbaugh et al claiming that women that need birth control pills refilled every month must be super sluts. Somehow in a twisted manner they think the number of pills taken corresponds to the amount of sexual activity and partners (not that that would be reason to slut shame!)

      • Lizzie says:

        you’d think rush would know more about pills since he’s popped so many in his life

      • Veronica S. says:

        I have literally encountered men who don’t realize the urethra and vagina are separate openings. Chew on that for a minute.

      • Gina says:

        Compulsary sex education might be beneficial after all. And as long as it focuses mainly on the biological-technical details and the target pupil groups is over … 15(?) who could have honest and serious objections?

      • Bryn says:

        @ Veronica. I’ve known women who didn’t know that. Now that is something to chew on

    • Lightpurple says:

      I had THREE guys telling me that on Twitter just yesterday.

  11. Erinn says:

    I just like that so many people are surprised that a douche bag from a douche show where multiple people literally are competing for dates and roses and the fake affection of one bachelor/ette says idiotic things.

    As long as people keep watching trash shows like this, the idiots are going to keep getting a platform.

  12. Eleri Glass says:

    wow. basic bodily functions are so gross. also! period blood is not the same as shit, sir. demoted from the bottom rung to purgatory ad infinitum

  13. Gina says:

    Lately it became fashionable for shops to sell underwear which can’t stand neither bleach nor heat. So no proper washing possible. And yes, period panties or not – that is disgusting.

    mr Underwood would like some detailed explanations of a woman’s period on his social media, I am sure. Things like photos of stuff for period hygiene and such … ;-) Perhaps he would also like some videos which depict the blood flow?

  14. Katashae says:

    This toxic bro culture absolutely disgusts me to my deepest core. Sometimes I just want to say f**k this world and hope women burn it to the ground.

  15. G says:

    When is he getting cancelled? What a toolbag.

    Also if you get a stain its best to hand wash with soap and cold water as soon as possible then wash with regular laundry and that should do it. I try to always wear a panty liner during my period when I’m wearing tampons and if you wear pads you gotta make sure you’re wearing the right size to avoid any leakage.

    • lucy2 says:

      I finally invested in some Thinx – they are awesome – a little pricey, but awesome.

      I wish stupid shows that promote stupid people would disappear.

      • duchess of hazard says:

        @lucy2, I’m thinking about investing in some Thinx as well. Can you tell me if they hold up with repeat washings?

  16. Karine says:

    I just wear black underwear during my period (and honestly most of the time). Solves the stains issue.

  17. Gayle Griffindor says:

    I swear by Dear Kate’s Nellie model for period “technology” underwears.
    Worth every penny and now i no longer have to waste money and burden the environment with my former daily usage of pantiliners!!

    woohoo freedom!

    (oh yeah and they really do work when you need them as far as taking the overflow of leaky tampons)

  18. Kitten says:

    Man I’m so happy I have an IUD. I truly do not miss dealing with periods and all the annoyances that come along with them.

    Also, this guy is a f*cking idiot.

    • Juls says:

      Same. I haven’t had a period in over 12 years thanks to IUDs. I couldn’t even tell you what a box of tampons costs these days.

    • Snowflake says:

      I was on Depo for years and loved it. I got my tubal ligation in Nov and today my period came back. Boo!

  19. Patty says:

    The Bezos divorce is final. And I’m more convinced that the “affair” wasn’t an affair at all. Jeff is keeping 75% of the stock and voting rights – things that make you go hmm. Anywho, the former Mrs. Bezos released a sing song statement.

  20. Sammi says:

    god Forbid this guy actually has to see how babies are born 😑

    • eliza says:

      that made me lol. I consider myself fairly educated about women’s bodies and health and even with all that I was SHOCKED at what it was actually like to give birth. Apparently I thought I knew. But I didn’t know.

      And about the Colton whatever his name, I wouldn’t like get a paper cut and throw out my sweater because it got some blood on it. I mean it literally never occurred to me that I ‘should’ be horrified by some stains on some under ware. I mean I don’t wear stained panties on date night but good lord I have blood coming out of me for 7 out of every 30 days for the past 30 years. I mean you do the math!

  21. A.Key says:

    I’m a 32 year old woman and I’ve never heard of “period panties”. What the hell is that supposed to mean?

    • Jackie says:

      They’re panties you wear during your period that are already stained or that you don’t mind getting stained with period blood.

  22. GreenTurtle says:

    Irrelevant white man has strong opinions on how women should behave in regards to their bodies and personal appearance! News at 1100!

  23. Pippin says:

    This is so ridiculous. My period undies are laundered clean like the rest of my clothing. Also, period “accidents” are obviously not in the same hazard or grossness category as fecal related ones. 🙄

  24. Pixie says:

    I bet this guy leaves massive skiddy stains in his own pants. What an idiot.

  25. MoopsMarie says:

    I feel ignorant – I always thought “period panties” were the hideous, old, unsexy cotton briefs you wore when you got your period, because they held the pads up better and/or you would bleach or treat the hell out of them (perhaps damaging them in the process) if you got a stain, because who cares. I didn’t think they were panties that actually remained stained. Huh. I guess I don’t have period panties then – just granny panties?

    • Genessee says:

      They are both. Sometimes only the faint hint of a stain remains. Sometimes none after treated with bleach. Some women wear them again. Some don’t. Depends on the person.

  26. SLinda says:

    Ridiculous ignorance about periods aside, I really have bad news for this guy regarding babies. I think he’d be shocked at how quickly and how often you’d be investing in new baby clothes if you threw out ever single thing they own that gets a little bit of sh*t on it.

    People have bodily functions and fluids! Most things can be washed! We all toss stuff on a case by case basis, but a blanket policy is going to result in a really wasteful and expensive lifestyle that’s for sure.

  27. teehee says:

    So men should also throw away their underwear. They emit all kinds of fluids down there too. Only thing is, theirs isn’t red. That doesn’t make their pants any cleaner.

    In the trash!

    Then it also means period sex is forbidden. Sorry dude!

    If you make rules, you gotta live by them….

  28. MangoAngel says:

    I throw out underwear that gets period stains, but purely because I have serious squick issues over bloodstains of any sort. The sight of them makes me seriously squeamish, whether it’s on panties, jeans, or any item of clothing, and regardless of where the blood originated. A paper-cut leading to a stain on a glove results in the same reaction as a skinned knee staining jeans or abperiod staining underpants. But that’s my own personal hangup, and nothing I would *ever* expect anyone else to do.

  29. Dizzy says:

    I don’t expect men to know about period panties. Why should they? Unless they are living with a women who talks about it. I didn’t talk about stuff like that with my husband. He knew about my period. He wasn’t disgusted by it (read between the lines). But why should he know about me having an accident leaks in my panties. He definitely knew about me accidentally staining the sheets. Have you ever heard familiarity breeds contempt. Husbands and wives start behaving like they are brother and sister and sex goes out the window. Nobody talks about but it’s true!

    • Doodle says:

      My husband is my best friend. I once thought I lost a tampon down there and asked my husband to have a look for it. He’s watched babies come out of me so he can take a look – he’s seen it all. And our sex live is killer. In our case, familiarity just means we are more comfortable to ask for exactly what we want and to give it to each other. Our sex live has never been better, to be honest. I’d never go back to the sex we had when we first got together.

    • Kit says:

      My husband is interested and curious, he enjoys learning and values knowledge, he also likes me and likes to know what’s happening in my world. It’s about as far from contempt as you can get. Every relationship is different. If yours is all about secrets and mystery and that works for you, great. Those things would build contempt in mine.

  30. Claire says:

    Marine, yes! Was going to comment the same. Black underwear don’t show stains 😚

  31. Patty says:

    The guys a douche but I’m also of the opinion that period panties are ridiculous. Once you get to be a certain age, you should know how to handle your business – women who have gone through puberty but not menopause are going to get a period once a month (give or take); figure out what works for you. The occasional accident is fine but if a woman is constantly bleeding through her pad, cup, or tampon; either the right product is not being used or said product is not being changed enough – or there’s an underlying medical issue. That being said, Dr. Brommer’s soap is the best. It gets everything out!
