There Should Be Laws on Facebook Statuses

Today while skimming the thoughts of the 300 something Facebook friends who are dying to tell me what they are doing/thinking/avoiding RIGHT NOW, I came across the following Facebook status:

                          "I am getting my period today and am really crabby..."

What? What? What?

Remember when uttering the word "period" was tabu? When we'd go to all lengths to disguise our womanly function? Now it's ok to tell everybody you've ever known that aunt flo has come to town? No with a capital N. Call me old fashioned, but bring me back to the days of secrets. If there were ever a reason to label Too Much Information (or TMI as the kids are saying) this would most definitely be the time.
