The Guardian's Comment Is Free section asks 'Should women get paid menstrual leave?'
The Guardian's Comment Is Free section asks if women should get paid menstrual leave - it's a fair question, after all there is a magic money tree to pay for all extensions to workers benefits.
However this is a highly discriminatory measure and I demand equality. I don't see why I, as a man, should be discriminated against by not receiving this extra benefit. Just because I can't menstruate, I should still have the right to be able to menstruate and so have these extra days leave...
The Monty Python team once had similar views... In Life Of Brian.
