🤔 Man believes women have periods from their butts. AITA?

In a bizarre turn of events, a woman on a date had to explain to her date that periods do not come from the butt. The woman had informed her date beforehand that she was on her period and they agreed to have a quiet night in. However, things took an unexpected turn when the man made a completely unprompted statement about women having periods from their butts. He was serious and not joking, despite the woman's assumption that he was.

The woman tried to explain the anatomy of periods to him, but he refused to believe that he was wrong. The situation became so absurd that the woman burst out laughing, which caused her date to leave and later text her to say that he was no longer interested in pursuing a relationship because he couldn't stand to be with someone who laughed at someone for "not understanding".

What do you think? Was the woman the asshole in this situation? Or was her date's ignorance too much to handle? Read on for some reactions and comments from social media users.
