Hi all! New to the forums here, and I was wondering about the name of this subsection ('Secret Women's Business'). I think it's a super cute name, but I'm wondering about all the people with ITP out there who menstruate and don't identify as women (like trans men and nonbinary people, etc.). It's such a common thing to talk about menstruation as a "women's thing" that I think we don't even realize, but I'd hate to exclude a whole group of people who might have questions related to menstruating and having ITP! Maybe we could change the title to something some inclusive?
I'm sorry you feel that way but this forum does NOT and has NEVER excluded anyone - no matter who they are!
This section does not need to have a title change, anyone who wants to does come to this section and posts or responds or just reads.
I find it very interesting that you have only asked for this section to have a name change -
why didn't you ask the same for the section called Man Cave??
You have been a member here for 9 years and you last posted in 11/2011 - you didn't find this "exculsive" 9 years ago.
