Still insatiable despite regularly benefiting from a system inherently designed to reward him simply for being a man, one University of Adelaide student has decided to colonize one of the few things women have left: periods.

The unnamed student got out of taking a final exam by getting a doctor’s note for “period pain,” according to Yahoo News. The note allows him to take the makeup exam at a later date, thus giving him extra time to study.
