Husband says wife acts 'crazy' on her period; she proves she's not; gets called 'nasty.'


AITA for pulling my pants down and showing my husband my underwear after he insisted that I was on my period when I wasn't?

My husband has a habit of blaming my behavior/reaction on my period. For example, when we argue he'd say 'I won't argue anymore since you tend to act crazy when you're on your period' or even say 'I know you didn't mean to do/say that but couldn't help it since it's that time of month for you...'. It's so irritating and it prevents me from being allowed to express myself.

It happened again last night at dinner table. We had an argument about him forgetting to fill my car with gas after he used it and when I expressed my frustration he said 'we will not talk about this now since you appear to be on your period'. I said that I was not on my period and that this was just me feeling frustrated with him.

He insisted he won't talk about this then and insisted he won't hear what I had to say since 'I was on my period since I was being irrational during the argument'. I snapped and had enough. So I got up, stood in front of him while he was still eating and pulled down my pants and showed him my underwear.

He made a grossed out face and shouted 'f that's nasty, I'm eating my damn dinner dammit'. We had a full blown argument and he said I acted horribly and ruined his appetite by pulling that nasty move. He told me to grow up and stop being spiteful over nothing.

He keeps saying I grossed him out during dinner and made him go to bed hungry. AITA? Did I overreact?

Here's what people had to say:

You’re NTA, and your husband is a misogynist. He’s weaponising a sexist trope to belittle your emotions and avoid treating you like a person - and it sounds like you’re at breaking point. At best he has no respect for you, and at worst I’d honestly say his behaviour is crossing into emotional abuse territory.

OP, you are NTA. But this guy...woof. You were 100% justified in doing what you did. If he doesn't like it, he can adjust himself to stop being such an asshole. Nobody can just keep putting up with that shit over and over without snapping

Flashing the clearly clean underwear at him was a boss way to snap though. NTA

I’m still trying to figure out why this man thinks it’s nasty to see his wife’s clean underwear. If she had a used pad in there, sure, nobody wants to see that. But the whole point was that she didn’t.

OP, wtf does your husband do when you take off your clothes to change or to be intimate? Is your underwear disgusting to him then, too?

NTA. As long as he considers it nasty when you pull down your pants around him, don't....ever until he changes his mind.
