A television commercial is causing mass confusion among young people who apparently missed or misunderstood the ad's tagline at the end.

The commercial opens with a pre-teen boy telling his father, "I think I got my period." The next scene shows a man rolling over in bed to reveal a bloodstain on the sheet under him.

The commercial also shows men dealing with their periods in public restrooms and locker rooms. One man asks another man for a Tampon, and a high school boy nervously drops his pantyliners in front of a girl, who asks him if he needs her help.

The commercial caused confusion among young people on social media who questioned how boys and men can menstruate.

Many missed the ad's tagline at the end of the commercial - 'If we all had them, maybe we'd be more comfortable with them.'

But even those who read the tagline were baffled. Since when are we women ashamed of having periods?

Some viewers believe the people behind the commercial are men who assume women are ashamed of having periods.

Thinx claims to make underwear that absorbs your period.

"We're on a mission to empower every body [sic] with innovative solutions and social change," the company states.

The company's Twitter page promotes their undergarments under the hashtag #IfWeAllHadPeriods.

One YouTube viewer wrote: "I think [the ad is] mostly trying to deconstruct the 'stigma' about periods. I'd personally never heard of period shaming, but apparently some people think its a thing."

Neiman Marcus

Neiman Marcus is selling asymmetric jeans that feature one wide leg and one skinny leg for affluent fashionistas with medical conditions that cause swelling in one leg.

The high-waisted denim jeans are the brainchild of designer Ksenia Schnaider who created the garments to address the needs of stylish women who have medical conditions that cause edema or swelling in one leg.

The jeans feature a skinny right leg and a flared left leg. But the jeans can also be ordered with a skinny left leg and flared right leg. The jeans are designed to fashionably conceal swelling in one leg.

Although the asymmetric jeans are designed to accommodate women with medical conditions, anyone can purchase the jeans to wear as a trendy fashion statement.

The $462 jeans can be bought in a medium blue color, ranging from sizes x-small to large.

NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes turned an insult into a money-making opportunity by selling t-shirts and sweatshirts featuring her mugshots from an arrest in the early 1990s. The 50-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star was inspired to wear her mugshots on a shirt after co-star Sheree Whitfield mentioned her old arrest for boosting clothes from a shopping mall.

"Growing up without my mother or father i experienced many growing pains but without them, i could not be who i am or have accomplished the things that i have today," NeNe wrote in an Instagram post showing her proudly wearing a black shirt featuring her mugshots. "Your past does NOT determine your future," she added.
