Thanks for checking out my blog/random thoughts. I post random thoughts
book excerpts, cultural observations, etc. all form the
One of the most unique and downright bizzare things I think happens in our culture/society is the stigmatizing and tabooness of periods/cycles. Periods/Cycles are something that 50% of the population of THE ENTIRE WORLD experience not one time, but every single month. And for some reason we act like it is absurd and disgusting for women to discuss it, for us to know it is happening with a woman, or to even let the idea of it creep into everyday life.
I have had women in my family who would be ashamed to let me know that they were experiencing discomfort or even going through their cycles at all, because they had been trained to hide this natural process for the what safety and comfort of men. It is time to stop. If you haven't before today lets start as of today, recognizing that women are a valued part of society, culture, and life and that their natural processes should not be something that causes them to feel ashamed. Of course this could just be me Hating !!
