A high school teacher is making headlines in Wenling, Zhejiang Province, China for logging his female students’ menstrual cycle and brewing brown sugar water to help them get through their period.
Netizens were less than thrilled after finding out on social media that 38-year-old Mo Qunli was recording his student’s menstrual cycle. But that’s just one side of the story.
“There are some netizens who say that I am perverted. It’s impossible to get everyone to agree with you, so I just ignore them,” he said, according to Shanghaiist.
The teacher also brewed brown sugar water to give to his students who were suffering from period cramps. He learned that this was an effective remedy to help relieve the pain and allows the students to be at ease when they study.
Instead of keeping the period record somewhere private, Mo wrote it on a piece of paper and posted it on a whiteboard for all the students to read. This gesture would teach his male students how to be chivalrous towards their female classmates.
Some of the male students even help out with making brown sugar water.
“I think as a teacher, I should take on the responsibility of a father and care for the students like they were my own daughter. The students also regard me as a father, so I don’t think it’s awkward to record their periods,” Mo said.
The number of male students is far less compared to female students in Mo’s class (13 boys to 30 girls).
“A person must not only have IQ, but also Emotional Intelligence. I often tell the boys in my class that guys must learn to take care of girls,” the teacher said.
