Why are we so ashamed of periods? … Women’s bodies are incredibly sexualized in our media and in our every day experiences. So much so that even mentioning menstruation sends a lot of people into kindergarten levels of EW. And why? Because for a moment, you have broken the spell. And suddenly, you are no longer a magical mannequin unicorn fairy existing purely for the sexual fantasy of other people. Suddenly, you’re a human being! (X)
Or… maybe because a large percentage of the human population finds ALL bodily fluids kind of gross?
If someone starts talking about how much snot they had pouring out of their nose when they had a cold, you can be sure that everyone around them would be grossed out.
As a rule, bodily fluids are gross. Menstration blood, mucus, urine, hell, even semen. Its all seen as gross because it comes out of the human body. Is it all natural? Of course. But that doesn’t change the fact that its seen as “eww”.
Seriously, girls. Not everything is done to oppress you. And if one of your big issues is “someone called my period blood gross”, well… I thimk you need to prioritize your issues better.
The video’s actually about being fed up with being told that tampons, and I mean brand-spanking-new tampons, UNUSED TAMPONS, are supposed to be hidden! It’s something as common as a band-aid, but because it goes into a vagina, it’s embarrassing? Who gives a shit! It’s my business, not yours! It’s not about wanting to talk about period blood (which yes, is gross), it’s about not being shamed into hiding some stupid cotton ball up my goddamn sleeve every 4 hours because ew it makes people realize I have a basic bodily function. I realize this photoset is slightly out of context, and can be misleading, but please give the whole video a chance!
my mom accidentally let my cat outside last night and he hasnt come back yet :(
When grandpa Horst walked into the Best Friends adoption center, a cat with only one eye caught his attention. Just like the cat, grandpa Horst can only see through one eye.
“Horst and Mimi bonded at the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center in Salt Lake City just a few weeks ago,” Best Friends Animal Society – Utah wrote. After meeting Mimi, he knew right away that that was the cat for him.
“You can’t see out of your right eye, and I can’t see out of my left, but together we can see the world,” Horst said to his furry companion in his home in Colorado.
“My grandfather and Mimi are truly happy together! I haven’t seen him this happy in years,” said Horst’s granddaughter Heather.
