Funny or Not? Menopause Humor

Funny or Not? Menopause Humor
Hmm. Do you think this is entertaining? Funny at first glance, to be sure. But I'm over it.

This saying is from a Facebook post from Comedy 103.1, a page that posts a lot of funny things. Many of which, I laugh at and share. As of today, this menopause meme has gotten nearly 100,000 likes. I bet if I shared it on the Hot Flash Daily Facebook page, I could get a few hundred on our page, too! But I just can’t. Why? It’s the kind of menopause humor that leaves me cold.

I’m not usually a “hard ass” about humor, that’s for sure! But after many years of comments and cartoons and cliches, the whole “women and their mysterious hormonal goings-on that gives them mental illness and they act crazy” thing is a big turn-off. The notion of “she’s on the rag” or “she’s menopostal” as a way of explaining behavior or describing a woman is insulting. Yep. Maybe it’s just the linking of menstruation and menopause with mental illness. Or the notion that anything related to women starts with men! Sheesh.

I KNOW, I can’t believe I’m so sensitive!

Ridiculous. Or not? I’m curious. What’s your reaction?

HotFlashDaily.com was created in the spirit of making every day your very best, even when you just don’t feel like it.

The site was conceived and built through the combined efforts of contributing bloggers, technicians, and impassioned women who believe the way we treat ourselves is a direct reflection of how we feel about ourselves.

We’re looking for true short stories for the website, and perhaps for inclusion in an e-book, from women who want to tell others about their experiences with peri-menopause, menopause, and beyond. We’re looking for experiences, ups/downs/unexpected highs and lows, sticky situations, “what I wish I’d known”, “what I’d tell my younger self”.. you name it!

Submissions should be first-person posts written in a blogging, editorial, or columnist style WITHOUT commercial links.
