I need a euphemism for periods I can use when talking to teachers/other adults that aren't gendered. Like I don't want to say that I'm having "lady issues" or things like that because I'm not a lady. Do you know of any common euphemisms for periods that I can use? like in a semi-public setting like a classroom, if I need to ask to go to the bathroom because of it but I don't actually want to say period but I also don't want to use a gendered euphemism
I say “it’s a personal and immediate matter”– nobody will question that. They might assume you’ve got the ol’ bun runs, but that’s not a big deal in comparison.
It’s my time of the month, it’s shark week, I’ve been plagued by the crimson curse, called to war on the Australian battlefield (because “down under” LOL)…I dunno. :x
