1. I'm curious. Did you really find this amusing?

Seriously? Did you?

2. Since it's not a PSA, then the answer is obvious

Yes.

I posted this because I thought the whole thing was funny, from beginning to end.

5. Very Amusing

I don't get the outrage of some people.

6. I admit, I did hestitate a moment before posting it on DU

I thought about some of the ugliness here that I've been trying to stay out of, and wondered if the video might be seen as offensive.

So I asked myself, would I send this to my mother, my daughter, and my best female friend? And the answer was yes, yes, and yes.

Then I reasoned that anyone here who is offended would probably be more than capable of explaining why. I am, if nothing else, teachable. But no such moment came - just a very puzzling question, followed by a pout - so I think I was correct in assuming that the video was not too outrageous for the DU Lounge. I'm glad you liked it also.

7. I thought it was funny.

But being a guy, its pretty much alien territory for me.

8. That would be mortifying for a girl to experience

There is no way I could play along with something like that. Thank goodness it was not real.

9. The title of my thread is a copy/paste of the video's Digg title

I agree, this isn't anything that should actually be done to anyone. My enjoyment of the video is based on the acting, comic timing, and many of the ridiculous ideas this fictional mom came up with. In other words, it's not my true opinion that this is "The Best Way To Teach Your Daughter Not To Lie." It's funny, as a scripted video, but not a good idea in reality.

10. I'm a woman, have had a monthly period for 25 years now

I thought it was hilarious.

Things are Very Serious around DU now. No humor shall be found in anything, under penalty of a dire scolding from the Purity Brigade. And we aren't allowed to say bad words either.

12. Are things really so open these days?

It was all very hush-hush when I was young. My own mother did not talk to me about it. It was embarrassing, horrifying and shameful for me.

13. It's an advertisement for "Always" feminine hygiene products

Nothing in this video is real, if that's what you're wondering.

But if your question is in reference to the practice of using mass marketing techniques to sell feminine hygiene products, that started on network television at least 35 years ago.

14. No, not advertising...

I was referring to menstruation being openly discussed by friends and within a family including brothers, fathers?

I realize the video was exaggerated, but it showed such acceptance, openness and everyday-ness about something that used to be anything but that. Just wondering if that's what it's like these days!

But geez... that ad is shown on television?? So blatant? No "running through a field and playing tennis in white pants (wink wink)" any more?

15. I don't think it's been shown on TV

As for the acceptance and openness, I believe the portrayal of friends, relatives, and co-workers "celebrating" this new change in the girl's life is a direct statement on how unacceptable this whole fictional scenario would be in real life.

16. We aren't THAT open

but I'm not convinced it wouldn't be a good thing to be more open than most people are.

I only had brothers so we didn't know about any of this stuff until high school and then I went to a private christian school so we still didn't know anything about it yet managed to probably offend every girl in high school over it.

By the time my daughter was born I was determined that she not be subjected to that kind of buffoonery so, while we were never haha winky winky jokey about it we did just treat it as a natural part of life that girls go through. My daughter has no problem asking me to pick her up pads on my way home from work and I've been buying her birth control pills since she was about 13. (In fact, on a semi-related note, I just found out yesterday how much they would cost if I didn't have insurance - great godamighty!)

Her brothers were older enough that they were already moved out by the time she had to worry about any of it but I think they would have handled it pretty well.l I know for a fact when my oldest was in high school he would go to the store for his girlfriend on occasion. It really just wasn't a big deal.
