Everyone loves Joey Tribbiani.

He's the lovable goofball we all need in our lives. And if you're a true "Friends" fan, you know that there are a few personality traits that are "classic Joey," some of which might remind you of yourself during a certain time of the month.

From his eating habits to his occasional need for emotional support.

Actually, if you think about it, you may share more with the Doctor Drake Ramoray actor than you previously thought.

1. He eats constantly.

Giphy

Give me cheese. ALL of the cheese. And chocolate. ALL of the chocolate.

2. He's Sensitive

Giphy

Joey is an emotional person. He feels things strongly, which is why we love him.

And though it is often an exaggerated stereotype used in society, and symptoms vary for every woman, when you're on your period, you are more prone to reacting to things emotionally.

3. He feels bloated on occasion.

Giphy

Ugh. We all know that feeling.

4. He needs a nap.

Giphy

Or coffee.

5. He's sexually charged.

Giphy

You know it's true.

6. He can be unreasonable.

Giphy

I don't know about you, but I can be pretty stubborn when I'm on my period.

7. He just needs a hug.

Giphy

And sometimes, you just need some support from those you love.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.
