This guy is our new hero. How many high school guys are clued in enough to know that getting your period every month is a serious pain in the a**? The struggle is real, guys.

Thankfully, there's one guy out there who is sympathetic to what girls might be going though – and has offered to help in a pretty great way by having all the period supplies on hand that a girl might have forgotten to pack but may be in desperate need of.

15-year-old student Jose Garcia is there for his female classmates, as he explains in a pic he posted on Instagram posing with feminine hygiene products:

"TO EVERY BOY THAT FOLLOWS ME AND CALLS HIMSELF A MAN OR SIMPLY A GOOD HUMAN BEING. Petition for all of us to start bringing a couple pads or tampons to school to help our girl friends. If you have a girlfriend or are friends with a girl, u should know that they do not always have tampons or pads on them, or that sometimes their period just hits them without notice and have a bit of a problem finding one. We should support them with this, after all, we don't have to go trough all they they do because of menstruation, so it's just logical that we help them. You should already know to give them your sweater and not question when they wrap it around their waist. So let's step it up a notch and help them out. IF YOU HAVE ANY RESPECT FOR YOUR MOTHER, YOUR GIRLFRIEND, OR JUST WOMEN IN GENERAL I EXPECT FOR YOU TO FOLLOW ME ON THIS."

Jose added: "To every girl that follows me. You are completely welcomed to ask me for a pad at any time without receiving a negative response or a dirty look. We should all help each other out like this so you don't have to thank me at all. #realmensupportwomen"

He told the Daily Dot why he does what he does, explaining: "Asking for a pad or a tampon shouldn't be such a taboo thing to boys. It's a natural thing that happens to women."

Wow. Holy mature teenage boy.
