Two types of giggles and cycles

Ellen who works as a teacher at a comprehensive school had to tell me a story which her colleague teaching biology has told her.

Her colleague was teaching the human reproduction and sex education unit which also included the topic of homosexuality. Fortunately none of these topics is considered controversial where she works and so the teenagers reacted just with the typical teenage giggles which are triggered by anything that could be remotely connected to sex or sexuality. But one girl stuck her hand up and had a question.

“Do lesbians have a different menstrual cycle than straight women?”

Everyone (and that includes the biology teacher, Ellen & me) wondered how anyone could come across the idea that cycles differ depending on sexual orientation and why this would be.

But in the classroom it was now the teacher who had to desperately try to suppress the giggle.
