Dr. Fardel 'Won't Rest Until Male Cramps Are Cured'

Looks like it's a good month for men and their menstrual issues. Catch Up Lady points us to Men with Cramps, a site about male cramping which has "directly or indirectly influenced all the most important events in our history." Sufferers are invited to participate in a study with the MacInnes and Porritt Institute which houses the illustrious Dr. Fardel. One participant confides that male cramps "Is like a tiny man playing a triangle in my stomach."

We're not sure what this campaign is for but male cramps ads are apparently appearing in all sorts of weeklies to the complete confusion of this poor woman who, interestingly enough, really would like to help anyone with anything that smacks of a suggestively feminine problem. (That's just too funny to stand.)

Men with Cramps also invites us to see the second half of their documentaries on October 19, which is tomorrow, which means maybe if it's not totally lame we'll follow up along with whatever other male menstruation-related news we happen to run into. -Contributed by Angela Natividad

Ah ha ha! I'm the "poor woman." At the time of the post you link to, menwithcramps.com just went to the M&I Institute site, not the current one with videos, which is obviously a joke. The M&I site obviously tries very hard to look legitimate, and fails on several counts. I wanted to use it as an example of to look for (and not) when considering participating in a clinical trial, which is relevant to my particular audience. It's not that I'm not sympathetic to men's issues, but that this is obviously not my focus, and so obviously not a "real" men's issue. I'm very interested to see what they plan on making of this!
